neuro: You know what they say: Real nethackers doesn't check their wands - They cry a lot.

Open Source work:
It seems like I'm stuck in politics these days. Not that I dislike that part of the work needing done but it takes all the time I've should have been coding and doing real hacking.

I've been talking with the people behind FreeDevelopers.net. Nice people, but more RMSish than I am. Their project is worth a thought even though I don't believ it's the solution to the free software worlds problems.

I'm still following the patents discussion from the side. Someday I have to check if there is any patents in IPC-classification G6F9/45P which is legally binding in Denmark.

My main work these days is on the Danish dictionary. In Denmark there is an official norm for correct spelling (not necessary unique) and those who defines this norm will not give us the official list of correct words and conjugations.

While we are working to make our own list (which is a very boring work and takes a lot of man-months) we're trying to get the list throug different channels (eg. ``forces'' them to give it to us).

What do you do in other countries with an official defined spelling?
