RE: What's Wrong With The South (of The UK)

Yes, well that's maybe the extreme end of it. I found it quite a nice change, though I'm not sure I could live with it permanently, as I'd be worried I'd start doing it too much. Three years in the North East was probably about right.

My Canon Pixma (what a silly name) MP210 is pretty quiet actually... not as quiet as my old <acronym title="America West Airlines (USA)">HP</acronym> Deskjet, but way quieter than the printer I had before that, an Epson Stylus Color 600.

RE: Does Your Town Have A Fire Siren?

Not a fire siren, but until about 10 years ago there was an air raid siren (I believe it was still operational and occasionally tested, though I never heard it) on a pillar beside a local pub. I always used to look at it and wonder what that strange barrel on top of a pillar was, and only realised a...
