Next gen please

Have you though about doing a podcast - either audio or video?

I'd like to see SFcrowsnest take it to the next level.

Hello Granny - I hope your name hides a beautiful swan

I don't even own a Net cam.

Bear in mind that in real life I have a Somerset accent and a fast speaker then typing is a great equaliser cos everyone reads at their normal speed.

The next level isn't audio or video but mindcasts but the technology hasn't caught up with me yet.

Is a Somerset accent bad then?

Hello Gran

In its purest dialect, it has some affected English but a lot easier to understand than Geordie. Mine is just the accent. In Somerset, I don't even notice I have it but I suspect that's true of all regional accents, at least that don't use localised words. I've got a good ear and can switch to a couple other accents.

I should point out that the band The Wurzels don't hail from Somerset and their accent is actually Wiltshire.

 Oddly, Americans I've met don't have any problems with it.

Nope! Sorry.

I've only barely heard of 'Hot Fuzz' being a film rather than somneone with a beard on fire.
