Wouldn't you like to submit some of these? You might have noticed that I have a special interest for IE conlangs; I am the proud father of a couple of them, as well... You can count on me as a hungry audience :) ===== "You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe." --- J. Michael Straczynski __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
