That is what Christian is implying. It is translated wrong.

Another wrong translation:
Ich bin schwehr auf Drath =/= I'm heavy on wire.

Wrong translating fromg English to German and back.
To be or not to be, ...
Sein oder nich sein, ...
His or not his, ...

The fault naturaly is with the English language, who can not even decide
how to spell words, so you know how to pronounce it:

OK, back to SUSE testing.
