I was going to write a bit about one of me pet peeves, which is people who use the word notice when they mean show: "That's a small detail, it won't notice."
Then I checked the OED and unexpectedly I found:
notice, v. 3. e. intr. To be seen, to be noticeable, to show.
What a surprise! And that usage dates from 1961. One of the quotations given is from "Only Fools and Horses" which certainly places it as contemporary usage rather than traditional.
