Ok. I'll translate:

Dutch: 'Goeie grutten, wat een buitengewoon mooi plaatje!'

English: 'Neat shot'

Canadian: 'Dagnabbit!'

Finnish: Kiitos ölut!

Conrad Nay on January 28, 2009

I can't wait to impress my Dutch friend with my traqnslation of "Dagnabbit". And of course I'll include the part where it takes seven times longer to say something in Dutch.

But HOW did you do the upside down thing???

Ritva Astikainen on January 28, 2009

lolll Norrel! Almost right; Finnish: Kiitos olut ;)))))

I'm eager to get your translation of 'Dagnabbit', Conrad. I still have no clue of the meaning. The word is in none of my dictionaries. On my pages I have tagged my self-portraits with a 'Dagnabbit', but I'm not sure.

About the upside-down thing: Guy is right.

Guy, to read your post, I have shaken my monitor until all of your letters were put in the right spot.

Norrel on January 28, 2009

I'm really sorry for not1word. This writing stuff attracts all the attention his magnificent, neat shot should have.

This is the Welles Fargo building, triangular shaped in all its blue neon glory. It's unusual for mostly square and rectangular SLC.

Now, as for the Lorem ipsum, it is a piece of printers text that is used to hold space during the edit and mock up process, and is replaced with the proper text when written. It would appear that it has been in use since the 1500's, and is based on a text originally written by Cicero in 45 B.C. How's that for some dusty old stuff, ey? If you're interested in a bit more reading on the subject or to generate your own lorem ipsum text, just CLICK HERE! I don't remember exactly where I first became aware of it, but a few months ago I finally decied to try and figure out a piece of text that I couldn't figure out what it was all about, and arrived at our link up there.

Thank you one and all for your entertaining views and comments. I'm sorry to have allowed my admittedly strange humor hijack such a perfectly normal and compassionate group.

Norrel on January 28, 2009

Well, now you unveiled your secret, notoneword, I should unveil mine. Conrad: you could try this site.

not1word on January 28, 2009

Thanks for putting that up, Norrel. I know that it's hard to let secrets out of the top drawer.

I was kicking myself today that I wasted this on a relatively normal shot. I should have used the ipsum lorem text on one of my SPAM shots. That would have been most appropriate. Live and learn.

If you think like a spammer, then you can use Ipsum Lorem on every shot of every user in and outside Panoramio and the rest of the known world!

You can't use it up if you think like a spammer.

Austin, you are brilliant! That may be one of the best ideas that I've heard in some time. The Lorem Ipsum would be an excellent response to SPAMMERS. They'd have no idea what was being said. I'll have to think about that. Thanks for the visit.
