    I think I can. That person is Danish. The chance they don't speak English is about 0.1% ... if you haven't already I would suggest you try signing up to to the site and sending him a PM.

    I have done this before with other sites and copied their text to google translation resulting in a fairly understandable output. I noticed that he is from Denmark, but google won't translate this at all from Dutch to English. So I don't know if that's dutch or if I'm just doing something wrong. And I am aware of the fact that most Dutch speak english, the problem is without a decent translation to english, it's quite difficult to sign up on some forums ( I haven't tried this one though). Thought someone may recognize it.

    Main issue facing you here is that they speak Danish in Denmark and not Dutch ... have a different character set and all. ... hang on a tick.

    Edit:

    http://gramtrans.com/gt/url/?url=htt...=translate_url

    That is quite readable.

    Edit 2: signup page in English. Haven't tried to see if it will accept a sign up through the translator program:

    It seemed mighty unfair that England, N. Ireland, Wales and even the Isle of Man had not an ink-mark upon them, yet Scotland had "United Kingdom" emblazoned right through it.

    I thought I'd honour both DaveW and his home. And Dave, Dutch and Danish all start with D which adds to the humour. It's all a bit Pythonesque though. I'm starting to worry that I may become genuinely funny at some point. Then there will be no hope.



    ps For those not in the know the Isle off Man is the little lump in the sea between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The one they all seem to be pointing at accusingly (with good reason btw - it's a financial slapper of an island). If you don't know which bits England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are you need to get out more (of your country).
