I don't get the keyboard layout editor to work. It doesn't show a keyboard at all..
perhaps I've got the wrong version of .net or something. (I'm running win764bit)
Try clicking properties and opening it with an emulation of an earlier version of windows. that's the only way i can get the Vistalizator to work:/ it even couldn't simply deal with the updates to my win7.

when you wish this thread was as funny as it used to be. Where are the humorous postings like we used to have? The postings that made this one of my favorite features. The ones that would make us all laugh aloud?

...when sitting at home reading four-year-old postings from HTLAL is a more attractive option on a Saturday night than going out to the pub.




(Admittedly the near-freezing temperatures outside are an additional consideration).

That you got 11/22 on your Circuit Theory quiz, and that you have a fever, a pounding
headache and a sore throat means a lot less to you than the fact that you found a nice
Japanese reader called Read Real Japanese, with unedited short stories from
contemporary Japanese writers, supplied with an explanation of every sentence (one page
with pure japanese, then one page with explanations, and repeat)

And that your local uni library got a room full of language learning material and
foreign novels and films is one of the most awesome things ever.

...when the word "pub" makes you think of a French advertisement before it makes you think of a drinking establishment.

When you thought you didn't need those little mini-size dictionaries, but find out that if you have to flee, they are easy to carry at least!

I have left all my language books in a flood zone (home!) which is expected to have some of the worst of the storm surge from the approaching hurricane. And there was no time to secure them in a dry place or decide which ones to take. It's a bad day to live in coastal NJ/NY Last year when we went through this, I managed to keep up the language study through the storm and the following power outage, but not this time, too tired from packing up only the essential stuff and getting out. I'm a few miles inland now in a safe (I hope!) place.

When we lose power, I'll get my little dictionary friends and a penlight, because that what language nerds do!

EDIT: Well, maybe not this time - looks bad. Time to language stuff on hold. Even nerds have to be sensible.
