I've been thinking about what I could do for those out there that are a little (or a lot) worse off than I am. Now of course I can't solve ALL the problems of the world (I'm still working on my own;\) but, hey, I'll chip in my 19US$ in the wallet to - for instance -:

o buy some translator(ess) from Afganistan, Belarous, Iran... a discount for ProZ
o same for CAT tools
o help; Bill & Belinda Gates drive to eradicate malaria

Call me a megalomaniac. You may call me a dreamer. But Im not the only one...

Sometimes nickels and dimes can make a difference (it's like those boxes at the airports where you can dump your small change from abroad)

This could be a nice and worthy drive. Henry?

TOPIC STARTER
... they for sure found them already without my help.... Nov 27, 2005

Anyhow, I'm relieved, they dont need that, correct. I admit, my suggestion comes up rather blue-eyed - it's like those sunday circles in UK knitting sweaters for those poor black souls.

Any other idea? Or is the (translating) word OK as it is? Shall we say "pick the finger (just not those two I need for typing)"?

regards

Christmas has Nov 27, 2005

become a personal decision in modern societies. But this year I shall be on Andaman - Nicobar Islands for this celebration. To indicate where I would be I shall be shortly projecting a personal air-view. Check my logo and guess which place it is! Keep smiling all the time, because it relaxes atleast 71 facial muscles which is good for the head. Brandis
