Nerdsville question time thread 17-Jan-2019 At 11:40:29 AM gfdonc
I thought that would get your attention.

In making the final compilations for the forthcoming Central Grampians guide, I did something nerdy and wrote a macro to extract all the FA details, split them into separate names and push them into a spreadsheet. I was then able to sort the spreadsheet & see who was winning the 'competition'.

This was initially for some statistically interesting but esoteric discoveries, such as that there are more routes attributed to 'unknown' than all the people called Simon. (18 vs 13).

However at the risk of taking myself far too seriously I've turned up a number of unexpected 'issues'. Can anyone help with the following?

Alan Hope or Allan Hope - which is correct? (BA I know you're out there). (5 occurrences of the former, 21 of the latter)
David Schirra or David Shirra - which is correct? (4 vs 5)
Iain Sedgeman or Sedgman? (3 vs 16)
David Karia (i-a) or David Karla (l-a)? (3 vs 4)
Philip Armstrong I presume is one 'el' not two (191 vs 7)

Yours in historical accuracy,
