And, how's the weather been? -- It wasn't uncold.

I've got that in Ayeri as well: a negative mood that can be
applied to nouns as well and a suffix -(ar)ya which means
basically the same as "un-" and can be generally used to
form opposites. There are many adjectives, though, that
have own positive and negative forms.


That link won't work for other people because it points to
the user's own computer, not to yours, Ray: is
ALWAYS the IP of one's own computer. It's the same with
"localhost". Since my computer has the name "becker", I can
also access /var/www with http://becker. This is called
"loopback address".
