Great to know you German! It's cool that we share so much. My first computer, by the way, was an Amiga 1000 (unless you count a Sinclair ZX80). I wrote a freeware program that appeared on one of the first Amiga freeware disks (it was called "enpig" I think.) I searched for it, but it seems to have been erased from the memory of the internet. It took in a typed English sentence, parsed it (badly), converted it into Pig Latin (e.g. "That was fun" -> "atthey usway unfay") and spoke the result using the Amiga text to speech feature. Smile | :)

Anyway, Mr. Clement.... nice to meet you Smile | :)
