    Hi Sith-I-5!

    Doing well in health thanks....just not so well on the work front...:_|

    Resigned to relaxing workfree over xmas though right now - for the first time in my working career I wont have to fight with people over what days off they are having -I got them all! [face_dancing]

    Right now its good catch up time anyway for all the EU books I got queued up and havent had chance to read (Unifying Force and Final Prophecy - I wanna know if Nom Amor ends up in a ditch or a throne!). Also just got this HUGE book called Star Wars - 365 Days, about how ILM started, etc.

    Glad to see you are picking up on the "Castellano"! Well done!

    Darth Shadow - have you logged onto Soulseek yet? Send me a message when you do and I will add you to my list so we can send files - I have an awesome set of Rob Halford standing in and singing with Black Sabbath from 92 and also Bruce Dickinson standing in for Rob Halford from in 1990 - now thats a weird exchange of singers, but both do quite well!

    Darth Calloux, I suspect a spoof going on here with the song.

    I am familiar with an original song lyric "Don't cry for me, Argentina", and I suspect this Sonata Arctica are making fun of it for their own song?

    Another possibility, and I emphasize that it is only that, is that since Sonata Arctica is a Finnish band, maybe 'argentite' means something in Finnish, rather than English.

    mmm I never think in that, maybe argentite is a finnish word.

    Just like the song of Stratovarius "The land of ice and snow", that say "Where Koskenkorvaflows"...ans the koskenkorva is a popular finnish vodka JAJAJAJAJA

    Thanks for the help

    I don't think so...
    The root for that word is 100% latin.
    Finnish words have a form very different, for it is a language wich origin is unknown and doesn't belong to the Indoeuropean Group.

    Okay, query. (Nueva consulta)?

    I'm having trouble with the word 'to', specifically in passing a birthday greeting to DARTH_MENDEZ.

    My spreadsheet of words notes that 'ar' at the end of a word puts a 'to' in the meaning, eg.

    Hablar = to speak
    Hermanar = to unite

    But I haven't got anything for doing a 'to' in order to direct something at someone...if that makes any sense.

    Incidentally, I am rubbish at remembering birthdays, so I issue a lot of late birthday greetings. Is "Tardes cumpleanos saludos" the correct way of saying that?

    Thanks for any help. :)

    The correct ways to say it is "Feliz cumpleaños"

    ¿Las manos para arriba quiénes los piensan pueden tener más diversión con una regla plástica, y hacer el ruido ellos mismos?

    Hands up who think they can have more fun with a plastic ruler, and doing the noise themselves?
