to Belgium and Georgia

My family and I are going to Belgium today. We'll stay in Bruges and I'll commute to a conference at the University of Tillburg on "The Ethical Implications of Ultrafast Communications." From Belgium, we'll go directly to Macon, GA for Christmas. I clearly need a break from computers, so I won't go online (let alone blog) until December 27 or so. Until then, I wish you happy holidays and leave you with some genuine Flemish phrases to translate:

  • Klik op de fotos voor meer detail.

  • Deze on-line versie van de sociale gids geeft u recente informatie over alle sociale organisaties in Brugge.

  • [Newspaper headline:] Amok over fiscale amnestie!

  • Meer info?
  • (And they call this a foreign language?)

    This blog is under attack from comment spammers, who are causing a problem for the server. I believe I can block them by upgrading to a recent version of MoveableType. However, I do not have time to do that until late December. Therefore, I have temporarily disabled comments. Please feel free to email me feedback at plevine@umd.edu.
