Well, I was there and I understood entire sentences at a time, but
for something more accurate you'll have to get the details from the
rest :) 

It seemed to go well, and now I have faces to put to names.

Of the lot (seriously, "the lot" is gigantic, and I really question
the necessity of some of 'extras' :)), and we reached 80% of 
essentials yesterday. Woo. Bryn is ploughing through Nautilus. 

Daf grabbed a pile of translations from Kyfieithu, I think, but
we need credits again :)

   Desktops,  using  'free'  KDE  tools  for diaries, word processing and

That's from 2002.
