Guys with no Halloween, you can make a device to scare your friends/wife/kids and that will be as good. Not to forget how much fun you will have Wink

Oddly enough, it seems wiser to build noisy pumpkins and blinking leds rather than translate a 170 pages book... Huh
Even the third and last prize is offering a higher reward. :o

I don't say I regret all the work and time given for this translation, but when I see such rewards, I feel really disappointed. Talk to the Hand
There's something broken now, in fact.

I thought long and hard before posting this, but I couldn't keep it for myself and stay silent about this.

I agree. Translating the book is a lot of work. An additional 1000 points are posted to your account Smiley
