I am on Hanselminutes once again, good old number #117.

(I mentioned Hanselminutes previously in posts like this one).

Scott and I blather about internationalization, localization, and more for a half hour or so, you can listen to 

    Hanselminutes #117 and/or download it from here.

I play it on double speed in WMP and shake my head at how ll over the map we ended up being, both literally and figuratively....

Now we have known each other for years now and we talk about the bug that first introduced us to each other, how to get Vista to support more languages, why Turkish cases differently, how to sing the Alphabet song in Amharic, why Kashmir doesn't have a locale, how Ethiopic is made up word, why I failed penmanship, how to pronounce MUI, and more.

Enjoy!

By the way (while I am sorta talking about TechEd), am I the only one freaked out about how Mark Miller was simply "disappeared" from the schedule? If I disappear over the weekend or some time next week, it might be because I am asking the question here and I am a little nervous about that. But does anyone know for sure what's going on?

Oh, the transcript of the podcast is better:

"It makes total sense when you explain that the Turks have four eyes"

What, they wear glasses???
