so 3 people with journals in russian have added me recently. i'm curious to know what they're about.

is there some nifty feature in lj that will auto-translate posts, babelfish-style?

failing that, does one of you web-developer-types want to cook up something?

(i would just copy/paste into babelfish, but filtering at work recently removed access to language-translation sites.)

thanks in advance to anyone who comes up with anything.

FireFox has a transation extension. A cuple actually. One of them will do the whole page.

I have a hacked proxy script on my server. You can try using that to get to the translation sites.

Depends on how they filter and how often they review the logs looking for things to filter. Damn bored admins. I'm not even that much of a prick. I wonder why they banned translation engines. That seems like a silly thing to ban.

it does, and the funny thing is that's what i miss the most. dailyrotten and fark aren't blocked, so i can get all the perverse news i want, but if i want to read about JGTC or DTM i'm screwed because there's next-to-no english coverage. hmf.
