Ladies and Gentlemen (and less easily categorisable individuals [Wink] ) -

a momentous occasion - only a few decades after teh interwebbs were spawned, we are about to achieve recognition that we are not all the same.

Imagine - the freedom to use your own language - who'da thunk it??? [Applause]

...and yet, across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this earth with envious eyes...

O Mr. Grummash ... !

You are a very nice fellow. Yes you are.

But the language you sent me to says very plain: Safari can't find server!

That is very funny. Ha! Ha!

But I don't think you meant it that way.

No offence!

Mr. Geek 2U!

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Bah! This is the great de-equalizer. Now over 50% of all pr0n sites will be inaccessible to those of us lacking an Asian keyboard!

Er, I mean, it's about time. Geez, Unicode has been around forever.

Still, (pardon my flip flopping, I haven't fully digested this yet) the promise of the web is equal access for all, and English is sort of the great equalizer, isn't it? Or should I start sharpening my Mandarin skills? Hooray for Google translations?
