@amigakit

I had asked the last two owners, but if you guys are ever overhauling the picture Gallery, can you please allow the CD32 and CDTV to have their own category so they are no longer mixed with the miscellaneous hardware.

Clearly not Kesa, otherwise that would have been:

Yeah, i guess you're right as usual :rolleyes:

We had a fun experience on the weekend with bogan's. We went camping at Wollemi national park and there were CUBS (cashed up bogan's) there with camper trailers blasting crap disco music all night keeping all the campers awake. Everytime people asked them to turn it down they got abused. They even chopped down green trees with chainsaws for firewood instead of using dead wood.

But why don't we have regional accents like the poms and yanks?  Yes there are the far north folk, but basically a person from Perth has very little difference in speaking to someone from Sydney, Melbourne, or Brisbane.  I can tell the difference but it's more word choice than accent.

It's a vowel thing.  The nuances of the vowel pronunciations (sounding) are learnt at a young age. Neither is right or wrong, just different.  Australian's (most) don't actually use the vowel soundings they learn as kids we "lazy tongue" them. "er" becomes "ah" at the end of words and the sounding for "i" changes based on what consonants it's between. eg: Hit(short i) a Six(ie sound).
I think I read somewhere that the NZ pronunciation of vowels was closer to 17th century English than English actually is now.  Dunno if it's true.
I certainly find it harder understanding the drawl from Nth QLD and NT than Kiwi. Ayee.(kiwi) or Ayee Mayte (Aussie)  :)

They're a bit of over the top Occa, it's not Victorian per se, even though it takes place in Victoria.  They could be in WA and still sound the same.

I know its stylised humour but go to some of the specialist places in Chadstone shopping Centre or down Toorak Rd and you hear Sue and Pru.
And other places in Melbourne have Kim a plenty.  
From Frankston to Kew to Warrnambool the accents vary greatly.  The newer academic accent is another one, hybrid American / Australian mostly spoken by females, with "yaar" and "amm". But I get your point around the similarities per state.

The same goes for NZ, I notice a difference in the north island from the south or more specifically Wellington and Auckland vs Christchurch and Dunedin.

Just saying.
