I went the opposite way -- Sturnan was intended for a conculture, but that
never materialized. I stopped using it for a while, and now I'm trying to
get back into the swing of it by using it in programming projects -- oddly
enough, for a program intended to help with conlanging. (I'd use SIL's Field
Linguist's Toolkit, but it has no Linux version and no command line
interface. I need something I can use via ssh.)
So I had a language with a technology level somewhere earlier than the Dark
Ages, and now I'm adding terms like "graphical user interface". Takes a bit
of getting used to.
