Beryl, Oh yeah!

After much struggling with my ubuntu, I got Beryl finally on my laptop.
Getting it work with ATI was always a problem (for me) until this guide.

Incidentally, this is just a few days from the Vista launch. Who cares about Vista anymore?

Uses BabelFish underneath, I wouldn't be surprised if Google or any other MT system also shows similar output.

I spent much of the fall break attending IJCAI 2007 and ICON 2007. IJCAI had a record attendance of 1500 plus participants.
