I signed up with French and Portuguese, but I think I will end up doing only (or mostly) Portuguese. It's nice to
know I got some competition! I was expecting to get the highest score for Pt simply because no one else
signed up for it. :)

We still have a little over two hours here, but yes, sore eyes are absolutely an issue by now.

So I still have sore eyes, a sore throat and a head ache. And there was not even any alcohol involved :-)
As for Tadoku languages I think I' ll go for German, Russian and Italian. I know I listed Italian as advanced
fluency when I signed up for HTLAL two years ago, but over the last year I have realized that I am nowhere
near as good as I used to be. I am usually a super fast reader, but when I last read an Italian book I
realized thar you can say a lot about my Italian reading, but super fast it is not. So I think I'll change it to
basic fluency and enter with it as my third language. Since German is a focus language, and Italian is not, I
will set my own rule that I must read 1000 pages German before I can read any Italian. And you have
convinced me that I could enter with Russian, Serpent! I really, really need to improve my Russian reading
as it is abysmal, and since it is possible to enter with sentences too, I' ll do that.

I just need to recover from the last challenge first :-)

I'll sign up for Russian, which is my primary goal, and German and French, I think wikipedia pages would be useful for this purpose.

HELP! I signed up for the Tadoku bot, and got the answer that I was in. For some reason the languages I registred did not register (German, Russian and Italian)- so I deleted the post, and tried to register again - but was told I had already registred. Can someone help me?

Afaik there is no programmed unregistering functionality for the bot. Write a Twitter
message to @LordSilent to have him fix it.
