As all of you have noticed, all diacritical marks in German, French etc. and numerous English punctuation marks are now rendered in the "upgrade" as �. This makes many of our past posts, especially the French-English dictionary incomprehensible.

Dave allowed me to repost the dictionary and it works as a repost with the accents, we can't go back and redo all those historical posts. They cannot be understood...and certainly some of the English for our non-English speakers will be gibberish. Dave is working on this. Computer upgrades are always good...right?

Fact #1: Upgrades for cell phones and computer systems, in most cases, make the company money, or they would not insist on your doing it

Fact #2: We usually become accepting of the upgrade after awhile, regardless how aggravating it is (and they know it)

Fact #3: The older we are the less accepting we are of change, because we have learned these changes will likely not improve our way of life

Fact #4: As long as we suck at the tit of these parent companies, to fill our bellies with convenience and gratification, we will have to put up with upgrades

Likely scenario: Dave had a valid need for the upgrade or he would not have gone to the trouble to shut the site down and do it. I suspect it will all be worked out eventually. I hope so, for the sake of those who have worked so hard storing data and information here but, there is a ....

....... lesson to learn: Back up anything that may be of value to you, and if it is a labor of love don't get jacked up if it gets screwed up or lost. Think about all that beforehand. It's free, unless you are of a mind to recompense the host for some of his expense and trouble (the vast majority are not), and

.........remember what you learned as a youngster, and the confirmation of that lesson from photobucket, about free stuff.
