    Default Census

    Have just completed the census on-line. A doddle on there.

    Great to get a load of questions without being asked how many units of alcohol I consume.

    I don't think you're supposed to do it until 27 March - the info is supposed to be a snapshot of that particular date. If you have a sudden house full of visitors that night who get snowed in then you'll probably end up in the Tower for giving false information!

    That's what I couldn't understand. The paper version can't be completed till 27.3.11 but on-line it's from 4.3.11. It says to complete it as though it is being done on census day.

    Bizarre. Best hope London doesn't get nuked between 4 and 27 March - would really make a mess of the figures.

    I think the main reason behind you being able too do it on-line from the fourth is if everyone left it till the 27th of March it would bring down the Government computer system's again. This happened a few years ago when everyone tried to put in there Tax returns on the last day so it looks like they learnt there lesson from it then. It Would be like 27 Million + people trying too log onto this site at the same time it would probably cause it too crash with a denial of service error.

    Even excusing nuclear attacks it seems likely that a few people are going to die after being filled into a census. Potential fun for genealogists in the future trying to compromise the fact that someone died on the 20th March but were then living in their home on 27 March.

    It is evidence for the supernatural I tell you

    And quite a few will be in two places at once.
