I think they mainly do that in show notes, for fun, and to fit in with 
the Scottish theme of the podcast/audiocast.  People speak English in

Yeah it's a Scottish podcast,  Gordon from Glasgow Scotland (or near 
there),  Kevie from the Scottish Isle of Lewis, and more recently Eric 
as well, but from USA.  I live in England and Colin is in Edinbrugh 
Scotland (or near there).

Also the reason for Colin coming on with me as well, wasn't because he 
is Scottish by the way.

Depends on person which accents, but accents can be hard to listen to, 
until got used to them, for example it took me some time to get properly 
used to listening to Gordon, when he was on another podcast. Which I 
also was on last year as a guest, but after he had stopped being on it.

Some things I said didn't seem to get in there or get in there properly 
for some reason, for example Dev C++ and 4 percent market share, and, a 
2012 pre release of Mandriva.

Also did I really use Windows 3.1 in infants or juniors school?  Not so 
sure about that, but Acorns and BBC's yep :). Also the guy who got me 
quite interested in open source I still have contact with him.
