i think the reason why the guy in the states put the "learn german or
fuck off" bit in their page was to be offensive. it's one thing not to
have translations, or to not speak a language, but to tell non-speakers
to fuck off is rude. considering the number of language bigots in the
states the joke's a little lame to me. i once had a tech support job
for the state of new york that said in my contract that i was only to
answer questions in english - i actively worked on learning an answer in
anyway, on the language topic, are there any other irish translations
going on outside of the mandrake installer? (see, said i'd bring it on
topic!) i figure the only way i'll learn irish at this stage is from
linux error/status messages...
