I'm exactly the same. I head over there ever day looking to see

Remember that some of them were wrong. So even though you can
just keep one finger on page-down button, you'll still see
glaring errors. Somewhere we have acquired "Facs", which needed
correcting to "Ffacs", and of course we now have no idea where
the misspelling came from. There were also some more dodgy

Hee. Neck and neck.

Even gzipped it is 100kb, so sent directly. (ungzipped, it is
over half a meg..)

This reminds me. I was poking around at Kyfieithu's news section
the other day and noticed that you sent two hundred letters to
people to tell them about it. What kind of a response did you

The collection of accents? That is Gnome's character_picker
applet, which is sitting in a panel which is the same colour
as the desktop, so looks like it's floating. I should have 
changed that before taking the screenshot.

You click in it and type a letter, and you get a list of 
all the accented variations of that letter. Then you click
one and it gets selected. You can paste it into another
application then. 

There is a much bigger application to do this, which takes
half the screen. But I like the little applet. One problem
is that whenever I try to add w^ to it, I cause subsequent
crashes. Must file that!

Keith brought this up yesterday too. I think it was Keith.
Someone did.
