I’m shocked by the grammar of the MD ! (sorry Ditlev ..your probably a really nice guy 😉 ).

Ok, so I’m no English Professor (just an engineer to be exact), but from the first two posts I read, I spotted 2 blatently obvious gramattical mistakes, which I really wouldn’t have expected.

Anyway, maybe English isn’t the MD’s first language (or maybe he’s just way too busy and overworked) so he’s forgiven (and if he wants a quick grammar refresher course anytime, I’m always up for a beer 😛 ).

Some examples of what I mean:

“And we have just begun, there is (there ARE !) many cool new features and products on the way.”

“Yes, we haven’t been good at updating the blog the last ( FEW !) weeks – sorry – but since we launched the bogof campaign there haven’t ( there HASN’T !) really been time for anything else than setting up servers.”

Hi BB,
Thanks for your comment 🙂
Your corrections are duly noted and corrected.

As you may have guessed from my name, English is not my first language. I am born and raised in Denmark so English is something I’d had to learn over time. Danes are generally good at languages, and I speak French and German as well.
But yes, I guess I should have someone read my posts to “The Blob” before setting them live, but somehow that would take away the idea of having a blog.

Thanks again 🙂

Thanks for the reply.

I had a funny feeling that English wasn’t your first language. (Lovely place Denmark, ventured over there once).

Your English is very good though, considering you speak 4 languages !

Anyway ..your the boss, so your forgiven 😛

All the best,

~ Boxey.
