"hey I've been using AV. Babel fish to strengthen my french for a year, and I've been familiar with humorous sci- fi novel THHGTTG. for years, (I also saw the film recently) But it took me this one long boring night to put the two and two together. I think it's a great name for a Langauge translating website. Thanks for varifying this little neat fact with me ;)"
