Ah dinnae jalouse qhuats thon ettlin eftir impunging "my accent": 
'ekshully' as a bi-cultural
Anglo-Scot I can give 'em the old Public school flannel as well as the 
Orcadian sheep farmer;

funny how the "Valley Boys" over 'there' in California, haven't 
recognised how vitally important
either of those accents/dialects is to the future of computer 
programming . . .  :)

Funny; with that address you don't sound like a 'valley boy'; even

offensive things about Milton Keynes . . .  :)


Trick Question: now that Linus Torvalds lives in California do all other 
programmers over there have
to go to "Finishing" school ?
