Today I tried out gdm, and noticed I could change the default language. I immediately got angry at the GNOME fr_FR translators. Stuff like "Enter account to transfer to" (from gnucash) gets translated to "Entrez le compte à transférer vers". "Cycle through all windows" (from sawfish) becomes "Tourner à travers toutes les fenêtre". Most translators don't know we put accents on capital letters (actually, a few of them seem to not know we use accents at all). I already fixed 17,000 lines of .po files, but there are still a lot to do. Summary for the french-impaired: learn French.

Parsed the list of Advogato users and certified almost all the ones I remembered having met IRL.
