    Ive heard there has been a tsunami in the solomons - beaches across our east coast have been closed, ferries out of service...not a joke!

    Mmm... yes.
    All clear has been given for Tsunami warning now, but really, if you are relying on CoffeeSnobs for all your up-to-date emergency information, youre probably not really trying.

    Re: Tsunami in Solomons

    I dont like smilies.
    They take the subtlety out of a comment.

    I will use them if I think theres a greater chance of misunderstanding, but once you guys know me well enough they become redundant.

    I understood fatboys comment, but as a matter of fact many people today had not heard the warning at all.

    So Dennis post may well have been a valid source of info.

    Oh dear, Dennis, you are so misunderstood!! (place smiley here)

    Thankyou Sir and you too TG - I really appreciate your comments, whereas mine tend to get me into trouble. Maybe I should post on what I do for a living and people may be a little more tolerant of me. After all, it isnt ezi tipin wif ur noze.

    Ah yes, times were better when I worked in a call centre. Simply wore the headset at 90degrees - the microphone stem served as a stylus
