Jean,

I'm so much longing to go to France for some weeks to improve my language 
practice. It's rotten, and I know that........
I prefer the department of Herault and Carcassonne. It's half Spanish and half 
French there, and it's very agreeable down there. I hate Paris and all the 
North of France.... That's in the same way petit-bourgeois as whole Germany is 
- just horrible!
There are severe sanitary problems of a very severe kind retaining me from 
doing what I want.
I certainly meant the second choice - how could I be cynical enough to mean 
the first one? Impossible!!!

It's me to say "Thank you", not you.
And I'd really be happy if the majority of the linuxtv "maintainers" (whatever 
that might mean in that specific context) would be as friendly and reliable as 
you are.  : )
But that's only a dream, and that's condemned to be a dream - just a dream!

On se verra

Uwe
