    if you visit nikoncafe.com from a foreign country what language pack do you use? I'm planning an upgrade to the forum in the next few weeks and want to ensure that everyone has the language pack they need.

    This is urgent as I do not want to interupt anyones ability to get on the cafe and have it be usable.


    ps: for all you smarty britches out there, there is no need to list English to this thread. Backdoctor, Retief, and others :)

  3. British English where I would ensure not insure that everyone has... :lol:
    Being pedantic the British usage is summarised by the following sentence:
    "I assure you that I will ensure that I insure the car."
  4. OK, got it now, the Forum Language from the Profile (just noticed this for the first time :oops:  )

    That would be: .beep.

    (Patrick wouldn't allow to list this :wink: )

    With the Cafe being so international, who is foreign to us? :wink:

    :?: You got me there Patrick. What language packs, where?

    Great, it is always a good idea to keep SW up-to-date. How do I find out whether I need a language pack and where to find one. Then again, I do speak 3 languages and if needed I would probably manage to put something meaningful together in French as well.

    OK, I'll leave that one out then. How about Dutch and German?
    Good luck with the upgrade.
  6. What language pack? I thought photography was an universal language :lol:

    Thanks for the corrections everyone.

    If you speak a different language other than English, you have the option of selecting a different default board language from your user profile.

    For instance, French, Arabian, Spanish, etc.

    Need Southern! Redneckese okay too. Bama bongo if ya got it ya'all. Might be next to the sippi tippi on the other side of the Dawg yowl. Too bad the Tenisee isn't a written language even though they do use Federal road signs on the Interstates like everyone else. I say that because they are the only known state to try and adopt the Interstate road signs as an official state language.

    Larry, you are just too funny. You remind me of a conversation I had a couple days ago w/my friend's 6 year old daughter. She wanted to know the difference between being "Southern" and being "Country". I thought for a moment and explained...."Southern is when you have charm and manners. Country is when you have neither of these, but you do have cars sitting on blocks in front of your mobile home.". Her mother thought it was funny, until she realized how true it was!

    By the way, I speak English! :lol:

    Correct! And note that I made the distinction between the two even though redneck and cracker are the rude and crude words for country. My old time favorite is still .....when you climb a watertower with a bucket of paint to defend your sister's honor.

    PM me an address and next week I'll send you a copy of the magazine I work for. High class Southern!!! I'll even leave myself open for a NC member review from both of you :wink: It will be the current issue released last week.
  11. Upper class Southern with just a touch of Redneck will be just fine. I'm told it isn't English but I beg to differ.

    Careful Dave.

    When I first moved to Arizona, the other kids made fun of my "Michigan accent" by plugging their nose and stretching all the short 'i' sounds.

    I couldn't hear it of course, but now ... ;) 
  16. My D70 developed a fault this weekend - see separate thread for details.

    I bet you don't have a language pack to cater for some of the language I used when I first saw its disastrous effects!

    PS: Has anyone ever tested a D70's aerodynamic properties? I came close!

    They should. Have you not heard anyone say, "Pardon my French."?
  18. Yes, but I think the word I used most is of Germanic rather than Gallic origin.

  20. I think I know the word you're referring to, Paul.

    Believe me, it got a good airing.
