Well whoopie doo
Got my first ever piece of Chinese spam this morning.
Was just gonna consign it to to the permanent file when I noticed the
content - ascii art depicting a fairly cute house and picket fence. Shame
I can't read a 'thing' of Chinese.
 can't remember the word for those chinese things that are more than
letters or words.
Whatever you do - do something.

There are some usable online automatic translators for Chinese, though it
can result in something that reads more like bad poetry than anything
else. I think they may have adapted a lot of old words to new contexts as
a way of adding new concepts to the language. So it's not always easy to
tell if something is about IT or gardening.
