    Nice and mild in the SW ... time to dig out those shorts
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    Oh looks good, I love snow and could do we with an opportunity to take some snow photos for a new desktop background.

    I still prefer Black Frost though... You try to scream, you can't scream, Black Frost freeze your scream.

    Re: Jack Frost.

    I really miss the 'old days' (when all this were fields and men were men, especially the women etc.) when we seemed to get several days of snow and everything just shut down nicely. Schools and businesses closed. Gritters. Ahh.. mahvullus.

    When we do get the rare splat of snow these days then it seems that it's gone the same day or by the following morning. I blame Dale Winton.

    Hah, I'm too young to have experience of the old days. Not sure what I'd choose though, 3D gaming or snow during winter...

    Good. We've been needing a cold snap now for a while.

    I mean come on it's Jan 2008 and I'm still seeing midges in my back garden all the time.

    Maybe the cold spell will clear the manflu threads from the forum

    Some proper snow would be lovely, but it'll probably not happen!
