Comments to me[edit]

Feel free to speak your mind.

In your comment on the discussion page about the German spring offensive in WWI, you referred to a book that suggested that the German advance was slowed by looting for food and wine by the soldiers. FWIW, I recall reading that in Paul Fussell's The Great War and Modern Memory; perhaps that is the book you are thinking of??Bloggy's man 02:45, 25 January 2007 (UTC)Bloggy's Man

That's not the one, but it may say the same thing.

Howdy, I uploaded the Acid3 Test screenshot with the current score of 52/100. Not sure how you wanted to link it up. MarsInSVG (talk) 17:39, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

I see that it has been taken care of. However the score of 52 seems unreliable. I get 51 with FFox 2.0.12 on Win XP.--itpastorn (talk) 18:01, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

Why the allies won WW2[edit]

In some articles this subject tend to come up. In some american movies, e.g. Pear Harbour, it seems as though the US won mainly because of their soldiers bravery, etc. In some discussions people seem to think that "if only" the Germans had won one more battle, be it Stalingrad, Kursk or "the Bulge" or whatever, they'd won the war. It is not true. It had simply prolonged the war some.

Help with Translation!?[edit]

Can you help translate this for me to swedish? Many thanks in advance!

Albania is also rich in rivers and streams with significant hydroelectric potential. These have been exploited quite effectively, making the country an energy exporter. A number of huge hydroelectric power plants have been built, mainly on the Drin River, and more than half of the country's arable land is irrigated, largely from the artificial reservoirs created upstream of the dams.

Idiomatic translation:

Albanien har gott om floder och andra vattendrag med en påtaglig möjlighet att bygga vattenkraftverk. Dessa har exploaterats i stor utsträckning, så att landet exporterar el. Ett antal stora vattenkraftverk har byggts, främst på floden Drin, och mer än hälften av landets odlingsbara yta är konstbevattnad, till största delen från konstgjorda sjöar skapade genom kraftverkens fördämningar.

Re: Just curious[edit]

How a rather young person like you have come to study ancient greek to such an extent? And do you have any particular favourite works? --itpastorn 21:03, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

Well, I started relatively early and spent a good deal of my energy and life force learning the subject. Armed with a Greek dictionary and a grammar handbook in case of any abnormal features (ancient Greek prose and poetry display little-used irregular forms of verbs, etc) I can tackle the language pretty effectively. I have translated part of Aeschylus' Agamemnon and I am currently translating book I of the Iliad, part of which is required as a set text paper at Greek GCSE. They're both powerful works, and make a good, if rather heavy, read. In the case that I am unable to translate anything, I can cheat and consult the Greek thinktanks around this place - they're pretty knowledgable. haz (user talk)e 21:27, 5 March 2006
I can relate to that; we did large parts of the Ιλιάς and the Οδύσσεια in school, as well as various plays, historical authors, and so on. While I most certainly did not like my Latin/Ancient Greek teacher, he was great in his subjects. =] —Nightstallion (?) 07:50, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Wikimania 2010 could be coming to Stockholm![edit]

I'm leaving you a note as you may be interested in this opportunity.

People from all six Nordic Wiki-communities (sv, no, nn, fi, da and is) are coordinating a bid for Wikimania 2010 in Stockholm. I'm sending you a message to let you know that this is occurring, and over the next few months we're looking for community support to make sure this happens! See the bid page on meta and if you like such an idea, please sign the "supporters" list at the bottom. Tack (or takk), and have a wonderful day! Mike H. Fierce! 09:05, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Lord's Resistance Army[edit]

Do you recall which Swedish publications examine the Lord's Resistance Army?   — C M B J   00:52, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
