When you find yourself translating "are you afraid of my mad skillz?" into your target
language and then walking around muttering it to yourself until it just rolls off
your tongue.

You know, in case you ever need it.

When you realize, that you even use Google, Youtube, Facebook, etc. in a language different than English or your native one. :X:D

...When you download this app and giggle like a school kid because you now have time in Swedish on your laptop! Thanks Serpent!! :oD


Sorry to get a bit off-topic, but I have a question: I downloaded this app and love it, but it automatically shows the time in German and I can't figure out how to change the language. I've clicked on the words showing the current time, double-clicked on them, right-clicked, opened the add-ons menu... and still nothing. Does anyone know how to change this? The download page doesn't seem to have any information on how to change the language.

I experienced the same problem when I first added this to Firefox on my Macbook. If you right-click on the time in the bottom corner as before (and if it's anything like on my system, hopefully this will work), you'll notice a second menu hiding slightly behind the first right-click menu that pops up. Just click on this and choose your language option and hey presto!

You're right, Teango! I hadn't seen the edge of the second menu peeking out until you mentioned it. Thank you. :)

Hehe thanks for the tip! What worked for me was making the window smaller, then it's displayed in a different place and not behind this menu:) transparent though lolol.
