there is nothing wrong with anyone's settings. Greek script shows fine on the forum. The problem is only with messages that had been posted before the latest forum update, because of the different encoding (ISO-8859-7) that was used in the past. Now the encoding is set to utf-8, which supports all european languages.

Emma, it can't be the reason for crashing unless you did anything stupid. Probably a bug, Trojan or other nasty creature (your neighbour e.g. whose wireless router your hitch hiking and got into your system?) I warned you didn't I.
BTW, why did you uninstall it? I'm using it for years now and couldn't live/work without it. Did you use a trial version? If so they have an offer for a 20% discount at the moment.

I'm sure it was coincidence too Wim. That was ages ago actually and I've had no problems since, although I've not checked my bank account.......

Maybe this one can help? Greek conversions
But, it still is only of use to people who speak Greek and there is no τόνος used. Ergo, it makes it useless to search for the word in a dictionary. It was originally designed for Greeks communicating with Greeks using the internet on a non Greek keyboard. You can of course change the lingo settings by using shift-alt. E.G., Ηιγη Ασσιμ ηος αρε υοθ ? But that is absolutely nonsense when writing English The H of high does not exist in Greek and the Iota is an e sound etc..

I read recently that there are only 3000 places on the free Greek courses each year. I wonder if they are over-subscribed or not?

They're funded by the EU I believe. Sure I've seen them mentioned here before.

members who have not been active for over a year are deleted, to keep the forum clean. When the inactive member is deleted, his or her posts stay but they belong to "guest_ex-member".
