[laugh] Don't worry; as much as I enjoy learning languages, I don't
think that fluency in Melayu is ever going to be a requirement for
joining TAG. However, it's nice to know that we can at least recognize
and field questions coming from a variety of other languages.
Hmm, this brings up an interesting point. Gang, what languages _can_ we
understand here, enough to parse a technical question for a reply in
English, or at least to translate well enough that someone else can do
so? Let's make a list.
Who's next? :)
