That's the common perception but also a load of bollocks. I've been 6 times & it was overly wet twice. When it is wet though…

Saw so many lost wellies last year. Wellies are for mugs, put your foot in the wrong bit of mud and it ain't coming back out withlout losing the wellie.

Proper triple welted boots on the other hand… didn't feel a drop of moisture all week.

2011 was… not so hot, though the blazing sun came out for the last 2 days.

Only time I've been was 2010, so think I've been spoilt.. Going next year I think.. Just trying to sort out a caravan.
I don't camp.

More interested in the rumoured Rolling Stones Oops

Nothing to be Oops about, it would be amazing. Just won't happen. The Stones are way bigger than Glastonbury.

Eavis won't wanna pay the £££ they'll be asking for this tour. Probably wouldn't watch them anyway, Pyramid stage really ain't my thing.

type terminal in spotlight

Open the hosts by typing on the Terminal that you have just opened:

$ sudo nano /private/etc/hosts

add that line

im not sure if in osx you might need to do this part too

"Step 5 Flush the DNS cache

On Leopard you can issue a simple Terminal command to flush the DNS cache, and have your host file changes to take immediate effect:

$ dscacheutil -flushcache"
