Found this very interesting project. It looks like it will allow me to create a package for 'first-timers.' I'll play with it and figure out what are the possibilities.

Spanish

Just remembered a request from one of the amigos that I should try speaking in 100% spanish because some of them are finding it hard to communicate. Currently reading a lot of spanish material lately, trying to master the grammar. I've made several friends already and it may turn out they may invite me sometime. I'm really excited about it and will definitely try my best to make it.

All this stuff reminded me of the work I did the middle east 9 years ago. I had to learn arabic since almost all of them can't speak english. That was probably one of those exciting times though. I just couldn't believe I would be able to learn it.

Arabic and spanish have something in common though. The use of the 'El' and 'del' probably came from arabic. Example of it would be:
  • moo-deer al madina
  • mayor del ciudad
One of the things I learned from this exercise was the fact that underneath all these different languages, there is this singular meaning for all these terms attached to its language.

Finally got it working on one of the Mandrake 8.0 box. The app looks good, it is a very good base for building the factory Inventory and Raw Material Requirement application.
