I noticed a lot of users referred to my site from barrapunto.com recently. Apparently it's like the Spanish Slashdot.

Whoda thunk?

Anyway, they picked up my 10 habits post and a few folks have commented so far. They even translated my annoyances. But I can't read them. I took German in High School and college. A lot of good that's done me.

[Mental note: take Spanish next time. It's waaaaayyy more useful when living in California.]

Anyway, I pumped the pages thu the fish and it made some sense. Any of the linguistically inclined want to tell me what they're saying? :-)

If you become unemployed, you can take Spanish classes at community college for $44 a semester (at least you could until the budget cruch). Then you'll be able to read it. Unfortunately, I am just one month into it, so it would take me way too much time to decipher.

The first comment says something along the lines "Great, I feel like a virgin or a saint or something. It seems like I am a faithful follower of those Ten Commandments ;)". The rest are not actually related to the post.

It's only comments about The 10 Habits of Highly Annoying Bloggers you posted. Don't worry, nothing bad about it had appeared by now :)

┐Realmente has usado el traductor de Altavista? No creo entonces que hayas conseguido gran cosa, porque hace un trabajo bastante malo.

It looks like you are driving a lot of traffic to them because they're really slow!.

anyways, all they did was translate your list of 10 habits; it is a fairly good translation.

One of the posterss is happy/surprised because you called barrapunto the slashdot en espanol. He/She says:
Uis lo que os/nos han llamado... ;D
