    10 more, but 186 is nice too. Hopefully I'll last longer than U-186 did though. http://www.uboat.net/boats/u186.htm

    Well, if I could work in Poland, I would, it's not so easy though. It's nice here, though I'm not a big city creature. (Paris isn't so big though) I'd like to study here, why not - but I'm hard pressed by "life", I have to work myself to get my food on my table, and studying is not cheap. So I try to work where I can. Even if it's painting walls, I'll do ...

    I had a Polish girlfriend once. I have some Polish textbooks and a dictionary around here somewhere. It was about 30 years ago, though. I remember enough to be able to pronounce Polish names without asking for help. Are you in France temporarily, like as a student? Did you marry a French woman? Do you want to stay there? (I would, especially ii it's in Paris!) Am I being too nosey? Just...

    I'm Polish, so I speak Polish on a native level, and at that I proud myself to have rather varied vocabulary, as I like to read. ;) I write English rather fluently, speak it at a comfortable enough manner to talk about everyday matters like dinner, weather, cosmology... French? Well, only basic understanding right now. I'm fourth month here, in Paris.

    How long have you lived in France? Which do you speak better, French or Polish? Polish or English?

    Yes you did, I reported that bug lately as I did the very same thing. Also the counter doesn't work outside of Chromium for me. ;) Don't worry, it'll get resolved at some point.

    I was reading the "finishing a game" article you linked me to, and as I scrolled through it (I always do that before reading something in depth), I saw this:
    “My code’s a mess. And I’ve learned so much already. If I started over I could do it a lot better and faster, and then the rest of the game will go a lot faster, too!”
    ... I've done this so many times; I'm fee...
