View Full Version : Windows for Australians
Sun, 21st Mar '04, 12:18am
And old, though funny link, giving Australians the chance to work with Windows without having to try to understand 'American english'. Say hello to Windaz 2000 (http://www.stuffucanuse.com/aussie_windows/aussie_windows.htm).
This link contains some foul language and may be offensive to some Australians. Reader discretion is advised.

Very funny. Although, I do have one problem.
Microsoft wants to help YOU Australians.
Don't be forced to use confusing American software apps1
Any proper Aussie thing would say "Microsoft wants to help YOUSE Australians.

ROTFLMAO!! :lol: :shake: :grin:
The only thing I'd nitpick about is that all self-respecting Aussies know that it's spelled "strewth" not "streuth".
Ohter than that though, that's some damn funny stuff.

Also hilarious is the link at the bottom of that page to this:
Australia Moves North in Fit of Pique (http://www.stuffucanuse.com/aussie_windows/am.htm)
Classic, especially the bits where Florida breaks off, and where NZ was considering invading Australia.

That's exactly something we would do too. You never know what an Aussie will do after a blinder.

Not too bad - they did mess a few things up, though. Someone has already pointed out "strewth". They use "You Ripper" incorrectly... this isn't an exclamation of annoyance; it's the Aussie version of "you rock". They managed to misspell “bugger” (it’s not “buggar”) and the IE icon should really read “Porn” instead of “Cartoons”.

Actually, there was one that read porn instead of cartoons for the IE icon, but I went with the more toned down one. ;)
