Um, who's laughing? We're discussing alphabets and how they fit on the computer. I read through the whole thread, and if anyone is laughing at you, I certainly missed it...

We're laughing with you, ScaN man!  Don't worry, we like your topic so much that it's 3 pages in length!  It's awesome to hear that games like UQM are providing you not only with a fun experience, but is also helping you to learn the stupidest language in the world... english!  But seriously, your english is great and I'm sure it will only improve with time.  Keep working at it, dude!

"We're laughing with you", Omni-Sama? yea, I'm sure you calmed him now..ARGH! I'm going to lose control and blow a cloud of spores at you!

Seriously, ScaN, I mentioned it earlier myself that good games such as SC2 were a basis for my English too.. Oh and Muzzy in English Land Tongue (I bet no one heared of it Wink).. And today, I can safely say..
Har! Har Har! That been great! ZAP! ZAP! KABOOM!!! Har! Har! Har!...

You can be charged for doing that in public, can't you?  I think they got Pee Wee Herman for doing that.
