Thank you very much for letting me know about this. Is it slow just to
scroll down? If you navigate off of the Ubuntu Wiki to
www.canonical.com and it loads, is that slow? Is Lernid using a lot of
CPU at that point?

When I click on it I get a "Feed Error"

problem. Assuming its working properly, then I have the new Lernid set
up to say "Pregunta:" rather than "Question:" when run someone who has
set up her or his system for Spanish. I was trying to make it as
friendly as possible for our many non-English speakers, but I guess
it's too friendly at this point in time. I don't know if you heard but
Nathan wanted a little time to think about it.

Thanks again.
