I'm not a fan.
Ahh... Russian rye bread. The inspiration for Terry Pratchett's dwarven battle bread!

I guess some people that plankjed their Kobos!
I like that: I might just have a new term - I've always had trouble with "bricked" because in en_EN, it has connotations of being very frightened, as in "I s**t a brick"!

Regretfully, I agree - we don't want any angry mods descending upon us! Now, what was the original topic??

So, Peak, did you successfully change your local settings?

Hahaha - do you know, I'd completely forgotten about it! I thought there was something relevant when I typed "en_EN" earlier on ... Give me a few minutes and I'll report back.

By the way, Murg, I love your sidebar note: Kobos are indeed an adventure (as is venturing on to these boards )

It works fine, thanks! (Confession - it took twice as long as it ought to because I put "en_UK" in first of all, and then remembered that this is one of the occasions "GB" is used!)

Thanks Geoff! The list is a lot longer than I thought! Glad they support other locales apart from the ones they have system languages for.* (I've no idea what most of those locales are!)



*Oh wait, that doesn't make sense, it's all English. Oh well.

Which locale is en_VI? I would guess at Vietnam, but I can't find it on http://lh.2xlibre.net/locales/. I'd guessed Vietnam, but VN seems to be the locale: "vi" is the language code.

Merely curious - it isn't something I'm likely to need any time soon!
