The Christ's Hospital Book

Anything that doesn't fit anywhere else, but that's still CH related.

I was at a country fair a while ago and looked at a second hand book stall. There was a large selection of CH stuff, including several of the CH Book, can't remember prices. Naturally I commented on this. The stall holder said that at almost every event she met at least a couple of Old Blues, and that it must have been quite a remarkable school. (We could have told her that!!)

I think you must be refering to "Christ's Hospital In The Year 2000"

David - try the biancolibrary.com site again...

This is what was said by the developer of the site...

"The error on the site reported I managed to replicate. The user is using single quotes (apostrophes) to encapsulate the search term. This wreaks havoc with the SQL statements that query the database. This is completely my fault, and something that is due entirely to my inexperience when I wrote the site.

I need to protect the search form from its current “SQL Injection” vulverability
."

So please try and search without quotes and it should work fine... let me know how you get on... in the meantime they are fixing the site...

Got a copy through ABE books for a £5.
Does anyone else think that the painting of Constant Lambert (opposite page 304) looks remarkably like the boy who was lead singer in the rock band on channel 4 rock school?
