This Just In

The wonderful folks who have provided me with this forum, Blogger, have announced a number of updates. This one caught my eye immediately.

Transliteration is now available in Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu as well as Hindi.

What? You mean it wasn't already available? All those folks from Malayalamland, Tamilville, and The People's Democratic Republic Of Telugu have been unable to read my stuff until now? That's very disheartening to find out. And here I thought I had a true global following. I guess they'll have to cruise the archives in order to catch up.

As for the folks who want to read my stuff in Hindi, De Gustibus Non Est Disputadum, as my grandfather used to say whenever the neighbors complained about him projecting porno films onto the side of his house.

(The last time I was here, I said something to the effect that I wouldn't be posting until at least Thursday or Friday. Are we all in agreement concerning the fact that, if I had waited until then, we all would have been better off? Good. Let's break for lunch.)

Aside to Blogger: You misspelled "Canada".

THAT cracked me up, Jim. Eh?

But hasn't blogger always spoken Telugu? I'm sure my verification word (kvakxta) is a direct lift...

I once clicked to see what my blog would look like in Japanese. Man, I had a heck of a time switching it back!
