Well, it seems to work again. So whether David has managed to solve the
problem, or the listserv recovered from its fever by itself :)) .

No, but sometimes it's the best one :)) . After all, since when in computer
science the "logical" solution is the best? :))))

Not yet, but I'm thinking of it (I'm currently working with pieces of
vocabulary of Itakian, and I've made a nice discovery: for the Itakians, it'
the left side which is good and the wrong side wrong :)) . In short, the
adjective for "left": 'a|xra\, also means "fair, just", while the adjective
for "right": xo/fno|, alos means "unfair", and is even nominalised
as 'ixo/fno|, which is a noun of class 8, used for very big objects, but also
with pejorative shades of meaning :)) .
Hehe, one thing is sure, the Itakians are not unprejudiced "enlightened"
people :)) . But at least they are funny in their stubborn way to consider
things the other way round :)) .
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
