oooohhhh  oooohhhh  just noticed something cool...!!!!!   :sucks   Once you setup the Russian keyboard input and select it....  if you go to the Start -> Programs -> Accesories -> Accesibilty -> On-screen Keyboard menu item you get the Cyrillic keyboard.  Cool!  No need to Google for a keyboard layout.  Cool....   I amaze myself sometimes!!!   :wohoo:

Erm, guys - письмо (pismo) means 'letter' as in mail, not 'letter' as in ABC, right?

Should the correct word be буква (bukva) instead?

I'm doubting the professionalism of their translators (currently as accurate as BabelFish)...

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

And what was the point? ??? No racer would have been able to read it (much less decipher it), and the US/Russian PAs would have referred to the signs using their own terms.

The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move
