This weather man

Done a far better job than I ever possibly could, and I never knew this place even existed!!

Never knew it existed, where have you been? Smiley

Daft mind because here in Wales everybody calls it LPG, seriously.  

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

Re: This weather man

Bit late there Steve, that was LAST YEAR that Liam Dutton did that - it was on the DM at the time.

They also revealed that he's had history with the welsh language. Think he did it as a gcse or something like that.. not a native speaker but he's had experience of it.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: This weather man

In the early days of testing the DVLC (now DVLA) computer systems back in the 1970s we used to use LPG as part of the test data to ensure the system would cope with wide addresses. Back in the days of 80 column punched cards data input having "non-standard" addresses was a pain.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: This weather man

Well it's like knowing the largest city, the longest river or the highest mountain surely? 

Give Wales some credit for having the longest place name I mean, apart form lots of ruined castles, a drunken poet and its continual use for size comparison it's not got much going for it. Wink

Re: This weather man

I gave it credit when I posted it. Pretty positive if I told you where I was born in UK you wouldn't of heard of it. Anyway I'm off back under my rock.

Re: This weather man

You mean this @Mook?

I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

Re: This weather man

The very one @Browni, the very one. I remember hearing that back in '76 and I always wondered what it meant (if anything). Today you have made me a wiser man and I thank you for that.
