How many errors? Really?

A lot of stuff arrives in my inbox, and occasionally there’s something vaguely interesting left to read after deleting the usual spam and junk. Once in a very long while, something very interesting turns up, and a few days ago was just such an occasion.

I’ve spotted the odd typo in the past, but had absolutely no clue that Ofcom’s data has this many errors:

Errors in Ofcom’s Data [PDF, 477KB]

Dialling rules within “mixed” code areas [PDF, 70KB]

Fixing that lot should keep someone gainfully employed for a few weeks or months. The only question is this: will Ofcom tackle it before they are merged with Postcomm or will it be left for the new combined regulator to deal with?
