“Access”, Lambeth: for Latin speakers only

“Access Intruder Alarms Ltd” burglar alarm, Lambeth • Another swirly arrow, not as sophisticated as yesterday’s, and with a design verging on the basic. Via Google I found a Southampton firm with the same phone number and a similar name and logo, but when I went to their website I found this:

About Access Intruder Systems. Content Coming Soon. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam non tortor purus, in ornare lacus. Aliquam erat volutpat. Morbi a nisl ipsum (etc etc in cod-Latin for quite some time). Call us today to arrange your FREE Survey.

So either they’ve not finished their website, they provide a bespoke service for Latin speakers, or they’re not around any more. • Spotted: Lower Marsh, Lambeth, London, SE1, England, 2007 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Vauxhall

    • I can answer this one, Sam. It’s a chunk of meaningless text often referred to as “Lorem ipsum”, which graphic designers traditionally use to indicate how copy will look if it hasn’t been written yet. So someone started designing this website, but they never finished it.
