    I guess the Police have to really want to help, or even follow up adequately:

    "Had we not had higher priority incidents to attend at the time we would have gone there, but I am telling you now, the action would not have been to arrest them as the penalty is so low. It is good to know where users are and who is involved though."

    and an unrelated aside:
    Every now and then Parliament should have random workplace drug tests, they are, after all, operating the 'heavy machinery' of governance...
    ...and perhaps they should keep log-books of hours spent, and on what - like truck drivers.

    These chemicals are full agonists for the THC receptor

    The agonists and the ecstasy...
    - I just assume the bad reactions are 'merely' parts of the sufferer's brain or body dying.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Remembering Roi, in reply to DeepRed,

    What about bulletin board services?
    ... The veritable dawn of time.

    After the last Carrier Pigeon was shot on the roof of the Tinwald Railway Station in the late ‘70s, inter-island communications entered a ’sketchy’ phase.
    Marvellous results could occasionally be achieved with a Stenographer and Ham Radio Operator. (CQ ’80s?)
    Contrived contraptions combining electrostatic resistance, methylated spirits and revolving drums had a brief vogue – but mostly it was mail, large canvas sacks and railway carriages, ferries and bikes.
    Modern-post… when designersaurs roamed the earth.
