At last, I've received some comments for which I'm very grateful. I was beginning to think that I was the only one reading this blog.
Isman in Bandung, who's got a very nice blog called The Fool
, has been having this idea of making a website dedicated to Indonesian uses of English
. I don't think you are a fool, Isman. (But how come your Google ads feature the Flake Filter
?) Anyway, that's an interesting idea and I hope we can have some cross-cultural correspondence. All are welcome to contribute.
Fabian, the Swanker, who lives in Sydney, has several Indonesians reading his blog, Macam Macam
, so I've included it in my Indonesian blogs list even though, I presume, he's an Aussie.
Temshi, who cannot be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
, has written to comment on my last post which was a minimalist piece on the nuclear industry. I gave a link to an interesting paper
on the growth of the UK anti-nuclear movement which, from 1976 until I came to Indonesia in late '87, I am proud to have been part of. Unfortunately, he says that a. he's too lazy
to join any anti-nuclear power demos and b. somebody else's bound to do it.
Don't bet on it Timshi. As Winston Churchill probably didn't say, never have so many been owed so much by so few.
Finally, I've commented before that my browser of choice is now Mozilla's Firefox
. Its tab facility in particular is very useful. It also seems to be faster than Internet Explorer. This blog seems to display as I wish it to, apart from the ongoing problem of the gap between Weather Pixie ~ which is offline as I post this ~ and my links. However, on IE the links seem to wander around the bottom of the page rather than neatly down the side. If you have this problem on IE and/or any other browser, please contact me and I'll be taking this up with the Blogger support team.
I look forward to hearing from you.
