Hi Matts, glad you explained that, when i used to change at Bristol for Warminster my thoughts were I cannot understand what they say must be a foriegn Country. That Somerset brougue is a bit thick to us NE laddies. Technology changes by the day I am reading today we will walk in a shop pick up what we need and walk out. No not shoplift, we will be recognised watched for what we pick up and automatically charged as we leave the shop, the mind boggles. Coming from a time we had planes with two wings and a big fan on the front and watching technology grow beyond what would have been our wildest dreams it amazes me that people within the same room text each other? What happened to speech I ask. Having dipped my toes into the muddy waters, TV, black and white, TV coloured, a phone land line and an electric typewriter for my reports i did venture into the world of computers curtesy of ICI, went into the office one Monday and found this machine glowering at me, asking what it did the techy said hit the keys play with it then put some of your files on it. Great, in other words he had no idea either. Progressed to laptops and the latest an Apple a month old takes me into spheres far beyond anything I have known, a total joy and yes there is a mobile in my pocket, my Daughters insist and keep it busy asking am I OK, my answer is to take my pulse count up then reply still here you have to wait for the inheretence.
Technology advances faster than we can keep up so my way is use what you need for your own use and comfort, that will be different for each individual, in other words you cut your cloth to suit, "aal gan an gitten me ganzi then" oh eck as like me auld phone is bleeping, "are you Ok Dad" hang on just checking?
