    Our keyboards can write both Latin and Greek letters. When we can't use the Greek letters we use the latin ones and we call it Greeklish. It's like the new language of the Internet and usually it's easier to type using Latin letters than Greek.

    Not really, if you have a basic knowledge of English it's easy and we are used to it. Now if I put my grandfather to read Greeklish he may have some problems. [face_thinking]

    It's because the Forums don't support Greek characters... :(

    Maybe we should make a "Dynami.gr" site, hehe [face_idea]

    Patience, my friend. We will soon (?) move into vBulletin forum software, which supports greek characters. ;)

    The real fun begins when we start using numbers to substitute letters. Numbers 3=ks and 8=th for example..hehe..try reading this

    in anyway it seems(writing,reading greeklish) hard to me.it's just like Ottoman youth in early 1900's who changed the Arab alphabet into the latin alphabet:D

    For what it's worth, I think the arab alphabet is much more beautiful than the latin. I've seen some breath taking caligraphy. Is it hard for you to learn how to use it now?
