Got this log with one of my bugs--
Quote:
Ähm, also da es unser erster Cache war, den wir fanden, lässt sich dieses Malheur hoffendlich entschuldigen! Ein Jungspaghetti hat als Tauschgegenstand einen TB mitgenommen. Wir haben das silberne Schild mit der Travel Bug Aufschrift glattwegs übersehen. Heute (es ist übrigens der 16.04.2005), als wir das Kinderzimmer wieder mal auf Hochglanz brachten, entdeckte ich diesen TB im Regal Smile)
Ok, ab jetzt ist also der TB offiziell in unserem Besitz und wird bein nächster Gelegenheit weiter gegeben!
Gruss von spaghetti und co
Does anyone here know Swiss, or better yet, how to make Firefox translate stuff?

It's in German. In Switzerland, the official languages are German, French, Italian and Romansh, but most of the time German is used.

The text is approximately:

"Ah, on our first cache we found there is still hope left! [?] A "young-spaghetti" [perhaps "spaghetti" is their team name?] took the TB as a trade item. We overlooked the silver dogtag with the travel bug. Today (by the way, it's April 16, 2005), we were in the kid's room cleaning and I discovered the TB on the shelf.

Okay, starting now we officially have this TB and we will give it the next step ["leg"] of opportunity. [or something like that]

Greetings from spaghetti and co."

As for online translation, http://babelfish.altavista.com/ might give you a rough approximation as well.

Thanks for the help--I'll add the babelfish to my bookmarks. When I used IE, I just clicked on the fish when I had a TB that had travelled abroad, but also when I used IE, my computer got infested with a ton of spyware and a couple viruses.
