The Merchants And

I remember at school, during French dictation, trying to write the complex word "viagule" which the teacher seemed to be talking about all the time. And loosing so many marks, because it turned out to be the french for a comma ,,,,, ....

Yesterday, I was talking about the & character - the Ampersand - here in Germany, and we paused for a couple of minutes to sort out just what it's called here. It's the "Mechant's And" or the Kaufmannsund - and I confirm that I learn something new every day.

Should I have feared needing to train in Germany (in German?). No - as I rode in the German taxi back to the hotel last night, I was with delegates from South Africa, Spain and Italy ... truly, the world of Open Source is now multinational, and I feel at comfort almost anywhere.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
