In the grand scheme of things especially with what's going on around me, this the little problem I'm about to relate is nothing. However, the big problems are both beyond my abilities to fix and others responsibilities who have much better resources too.

So anyway, I was sitting here trying to figure out how to say "I live in a disaster area" in Esperanto when my computer screen went blank. For a half second I thought power failure, before realizing the radio was still playing.

/em stopping to watch checkdisk's report with a frown, and running it a second time before continuing this entry

So anyway, I looked around. Everything (except my cordless phone) that was plugged into my surge protector was dead. I know I should have replaced that surge protector years ago. After a brief experimentation it seems all the plugs but the one I had my phone in suddenly died in that surge protector.

So right now I've got everything plugged into a normal power strip I had laying around and am operating my computer stuff without a safety net. ::::sigh:::::

As I said, this is nothing. Yet ... :::::sigh:::::

Kiel traduki "area"

Sorry to go into pedantic mode - Esperanto-wise. But peramps "kriza regiono" is more Zamenhofan :eyesroll"

Re: Kiel traduki "area"


well, since I've been studying the language for less than a month. And other than the lenru website, most of the self-teaching resources I'm finding on the internet are public domain stuff from Z's time ...

I think I'm doing fairly well.
