...this is bourne out by an entry in Wiki.

Off topic to be sure, but Wiki and Wikipedia are not synonymous.

Hi Pault,

I didn't know this at all! I've often wondered where they got the name 'Wikipedia' from. Romantic fool that I am I had imagined it was because it is based in some remote Southern Ocean attol, rather like dot.tk. But now I know the mundane truth I have one less illusion to help me along life's weary way  >:D

Cheers

Simon

Not sure if I should post this here relating to fires or inthe weather section?

Continuing high temperatures and low humidity here in the "Terres de l'Ebre " has once again elevated the fire risk to level 3. The authorities have placed access restrictions to the surrounding mountain ranges. Not surprising given the tragic deaths a few weeks ago.  http://bit.ly/ie5DG  It's in Catalan but you'll get the gist if you know some Spanish.

The Gencat site also explains how they evaluate the risk http://bit.ly/13d5zp
