WebAL has moved !
WebAL is now at www.africanlanguages.org.
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 is now in the competent hands of Guy de Pauw, Gilles-Maurice de Schryver and David Joffe. The new WebAL will be molded in a 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.
I have reverted the pages on this site to referral pages. If you access any of the old pages, you should be automatically re-directed to the new site. But, I can't promise they will be here forever, so you need to update your bookmarks, lest you want to see annoying error messages in the future (which won't be as funny as this).
Working with WebAL over the past 5 years, I received invaluable help from numerous people, such as Marvin Beachy, Roger M. Blench, Mark Dingemanse, Ines Fiedler, Harald Hammarström, Stuart McGill, Amina Mettouchi, Bonny Sands, Gilles-Maurice de Schryver, Anne Schwarz, Lameen Souag, Oliver Stegen, and others.
Some people also sent me encouraging emails and were overall very nice to me. (New experience!) Although 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.
