        as you may know, I am currently in the Netherlands, country of
Boudewijn and Irina Rempt, and they invited me last weekend to their

        Firstly, I must say that Boudewijn and Irina are very kind people, and
that their house in impressive, with so many books everywhere! Your
bookcases are really impressive!

        As for the conlanging-related material we discussed about, I for the
first time heard spoken Denden and Valdyan (no, I don't have a computer
with sounding facilities, and thus I couldn't hear the samples available
in the webpage). We also discussed of the Sky People, the conculture I'm

        Finally, Boudewijn kindly created a font for my language Notya, font
that is available at It is not
perfect, but at least it exists and works already pretty well (and I was
impressed by the speed at which Boudewijn created it), and it will

        This meeting was very good. Invite me as much as you want :) !
