Thank you very much for your letter (copy below). I
had not realized that you were one of the techie-
elves who worked hard to install and refine the three
cyprus indymedia language branches on Illich.
Please accept honetst thanks and gratitude from all of
us in the Cyprus collective.
We've been doing our language/ character set tests,
and have not had time to look at the modules and css
files at all yet, and it will probably be while before
we do so. It seems that the emerging consensus among
our group is just to go public right now with our
pages in the state they came in (plus the refinenents
you did), and we'll deal with customizing and with the
rest as soon as we can, down the road a bit.
I will read everything you wrote and if I have
inspirations or questions, I'll definitely contact
you. Is the
illich-users at lists.indymedia.org
list working? I subscribed to it a while ago, but I
don't think I've received anything on it yet.
Andrew, thank you very, very much,
