Hi there!

I am in Hungary now where where there is a 4-days Holiday around the 15th March - the Hungarian version of the Springtime of Nations revolutions.

Then I'll have another 2 days off as my client in Israel celebrates Purim.

I use these free days to work on an open source platform for word-games. It is not ready yet to show the world, but it is already in a condition where people can contribute to it. The first game needs lots of words in various languages. I already started to do versions in English, Hungarian, Hebrew, and Ladino and I already had a contributor with French and German, but I am looking for more people who might be interested in contributing in other languages. Let me know and I can show you the game. I hope that two weeks from now, when I am editing the next issue of the Perl Weekly I'll be able to link to the game. (the game is only front-end code now so there is no Perl in it. Sorry.)

Enjoy your week!

PWC155 - Fortunate Numbers
