Non bee link rant


Why, when we install so many hardware devices, or software can we only select ‘English (US) and not English (UK)?

 

Can we reclaim our language, please?

No wonder schoolchildren become confused.  If you are learning 2 foreign languages they always make sure there are distinctions so you don’t confuse the two (avoid the same teacher for a pupil, make sure each language is taught in a different room).  UK children are exposed to 2 very similar languages so naturally they will get confused and that is most obvious when in the written form.   To say nothing about the different paper sizes (A4 in UK letter in US) and the problems that brings.

About apiarylandlord

Definitely past it - whatever it was - I may have blinked and missed it. New to beekeeping and totally entranced by the experience. That is probably all you need to know until I work out how secure this blog is. Great fan of recycling - see ilovefreegle.org to find your local group. Save things from landfill. Pass on your surplus, locally, for free or ask for things you need in case you can have someone's cast off again for free.
