wvwoman, thank you for digging that up! I've always wondered about that distinction.

Is it still in there?!? Eons ago, the database had one in French, and I understand they removed it. Then again, the db and the site seemed much much smaller back then.

Sadly, even being a native Spanish speaker doesn´t help much, because by the time it comes up again, you're off-guard.

Not only was it obnoxiously difficult, but I don't think it was even a very good translation. I have also seen it as, "Dios se retrasa pero no olvida."

"If suffer we must, let's suffer on the heights." - Victor Hugo (10.8% completion rate)

I'm not even entirely sure what this means, managed to get "heights" from typing in "the" and went from there...
