  1. Thats pretty cool.In indonesia we have blender army ^^.Congratulation to you all.Hoping someone translate it in english ~_~ (i wanna read too)

  2. The news item is in English, describing an item in Russian. Is it so that non-English speakers read on something that they cant read? I have nothing against the Russian language, just the idea that we are told of what we know we cannot read. Maybe it would be even better if you summarise the contents of the Magazine in RUSSIAN itsself

    All the best though, and congratulations!

  3. Thanks.

    My Russian skills are very rusty and haven't been used in decades. I just discovered Blender-Empire and started to read #12. You write at the perfect level for a person like me. I can enjoy reading your journal while polishing up my Russian reading skills at the same time.

    Open source is international. Blender is international. The folks from the former Soviet-Block countries have provided substantial input into Open Source projects over the years. Eleven time-zones hold a lot of people!

    Best of luck in the future.
