If I was to do such a profile, I would also have "humor" as one of my
interests, though my humor is probably more "arcane" than most peoples' - I
started by translating the title words of "Microsoft Windows" - as I thought
they should be translated:
Just pop along the lines to the
for my translation of "Soft" = "Wairangi", and you'll see I haven't taken
"Micro" "Soft" all that seriously. I also got it posted on TheInquirer as a
press release, and won't be able to plead either insanity or April-the-First,

Mau e ki, "He aha te mea nui?"
You ask, "What is the most important thing?"
Maku e ki, "He tangata, he tangata, he tangata."
I reply, "It is people, it is people, it is people."
