  • >How do you get off a Yahoo list that you never wanted to be on in the first place?< You can probably unsubscribe by email. To unsubscribe from Czechlist, you would need to send a blank message to czechlist-unsubscribe@^$1, so I'd imagine to unsubscribe from this other list you just need to replace "czechlist" with the name of the other list, so something like slovio-unsubscribe@^$2.

  • > Hi there, I can't find an English translation of "skalni hrnec" (skalni' hrnec). It's a kind of rock formation and you can see a picture at http://www.jablonec.cz/ic/foto1.html, fourth row from top, second column from left; plural form in the caption there. Can you suggest something? Jirka Bolech < Hi Jirka, I haven't been able to find an English equivalent, but it struck me that...

  • > No way. The sense they gave it at MF Dnes was pejorative. They spoke about hoards of people eager to see the site of disaster. The kind of habit you see with a crowd gathering around a car accident. M.< Even so, "funfair" doesn't really work, because that sounds like a place with fairground rides (ghost trains, bumper cars and stuff). If it needs to be pejorative, I'd suggest...
