New home for WebAL

After long and tough negotiations in a dimly lit room at the back of bar, with cigar smoke lingering in the air, lots of arm waving, shouting, and a few cold drinks, WebAL (Web resources for African languages) has finally found a new home at:

www.africanlanguages.org

It is now in the competent hands of Guy de Pauw, Gilles-Maurice de Schryver and David Joffe. The new WebAL will be done in wiki style, something that I should have done myself ages ago, but it takes good men to do something good. The new format will be a tremendous boost for WebAL’s continued existence.

While working on WebAL over the past 5 years, I got a lot of help and encouraging emails, even though I would have appreciated a free weekend at some fancy Cape Town lodge more; all expenses paid, of course. Nah, just kidding! All your contributions, suggestions and emails have been quite rewarding and satisfying.

Now go over there and download some grammar books to read.
