Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Summary:   Dear linguists and friends,

at the end of november we sent a query to linguist list. We were looking
for a talk-program which is able to record every keystroke of both
Besides that, it should work in a local area network behind a firewall on
PCs which are running Windows NT 4.0.

We are very grateful for all the help we got. A lot of people contacted us
and gave us some very useful tips. We were very happy about that.
Especially, we would like to thank Celso Alvarez Caccamo, who's advice was
the key to solve our problem.

And this is what we are going to do: We use a very simple chat-program
called Chatzilla, and we record the window with a program called hypercam.
Hypercam records a nice little avi-movie from the chat-window (if it is not
too big). At the moment we replay the movie with hypercam or the
Multimedia-Player of Microsoft, but we hope to find another program, but
which is able to replay the movies in slowmotion.

Thank you again for your help and we would be happy to discuss our
experiences with people working on the same problem.
