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. (Unlurking after some number of years...hi, everyone!)
