(This is part-1 of a wide panoramic two parts 'Nature' Theme to be installed as the 'Site Zone' main theme.)

A few weeks ago, I was entertaining the possibility of using one of my digital painting compositions as a splash screen in an ocPortal website theme. Since ocPortal offers distinct "welcome" and "site" pages, I considered making two themes; one for the "welcome/splash" page, which would be stripped to the core to act as the canva…

Thanks for your kind words, Puran!:)

I love the anecdote about its effect in your office.
This is exactly what I was hoping for while making this theme. I started a story and people’s imagination will fill it with their own thoughts and dreams. A website does not always have to be a business card. We can supply the imagination knowing that ocPortal can carry the substance.;)

I think beautiful should also be changed to beautyfull in the dictionary. ;)

I'm a mad environmental guy that has a special dictionarybox under the keyboard where all the used letters go in. When typing I use a special alphabetical sieve, but thats an old one that can't devide the Dutch from the English letters, so sometimes I'm short of letters and forget to make new ones. But now I can use yours, thanks for that,

Heh I think Eric was stating that he liked your word better than the official word, as do I actually.

If you think about it, y is often given the i sound in the english language anyways, and excatly where does language and words come from but from a group of people getting together to decide upon sounds and symbols that for them represent something with a meaning. This is best illustrated by the meer fact that there are many different variations of english, from british english (or true english as even as an american I'd have to give credit where it is due lol) to american english, canadian english and austrailian english (plus others) all have different dilects and words with different meanings; such as color in the US being colour in Canada and England. This is the case with many languages, such as spanish, chineese, and I suspect german. This is also the case within US English, with different words and accents being used in the new england states versus the south, or in the sout versus the mid west or the west coast. Those with hearing disabilities (such as my wife) have even a different version of english, even if not by design, simply because they can't hear every letter or syllable correctly to preproduce it in their speech or writting. Let us also not forget that English is a germanic language, as is dutch and if you look at old english you would find it not only foriegn but more similar to german than the english that is used today.

I think in the case of this theme, Puran was right on the mark, as I think even though he intended to translate beautiful correctly, his word beautyfull is more fitting… for this theme is not just beautiful… it is full of beauty.

Hi,

Your right. I have a special Puran english and while I was in India in december 2010 they have an very very special way of pronouncing English and writing to. I did speak/write a little Tugalu while talking with contacts on the Phillipines where they have another form of English. I has translated computer books from English and German to Dutch for Sybex and Easy Computers Belgium and they always need an Neerlandicus (studiŽd person that says he know the language :lol:†) to correct my used languages. I like to use humor, even in computer books, as Informatica teacher I learned that a lesson stick much better with some humor with it.
You know a lot of it, thanks for that. I knew your special (see http://ocportal.com/forum/topicview/misc/developing/beginners-guides-for.htm#post_66334†here.) as you have a way with words.

Greetings Puran.
