Something to do with the figure 8 being made of two equal circles.
Twas probably both Duztee, not a good month - might need to be sampling some of the kórházi finomságok soon

Not sure how Polgardi does it but we have a Proxy which costs about 45GBP per year (I think) and have a PC run through our TV. Means we can get iPlayer, ITV catch up and C4 on demand services, if you go for a VPN you can get stuff like C5 and Love film etc and also US services.

Not sure if it is ok to mention the name of the supplier I use so will wait for Rural to give me the nod

Very simple to do but you do need reasonable interwebby speeds, can get away with a 2MB connection we have 4MB and it runs superbly.

I find this online translation tool a million times better than anything else I have tried, it wipes the floor with Google Translate which is only of any use for a quick giggle!

http://www.webforditas.hu/
I bought a bag of lost head nails yesterday. I noticed in OBI they were labelled as "bognár szeg" so I knew what to ask for later in a smaller shop (1200 Ft in OBI, 480 Ft for the same thing in the small shop!). I just looked up "Bognár szeg"
on both Google Translate and webforditas. Google comes up with "Bognar nails", webforditas translates it as "cartwright pin".

Google-nek mindig meglehetősen agyafúrt fordításai voltak! (Hope this came out right! Translated via 'Webforditas'! I actually input 'Google has always had rather dodgy translations!' but translating back from Magyar to English doesn't come out the same.

I need a 'Cherry-Picker' the high lift work platform type.

I know they are called 'Basketball Players' in Hungary so can anyone tell me what the internet search phrase is to hire one?
I assume they must have them here! though I have not actually seen one.

I think you need to search for "Teleszkópos rakodó"
You could try these people:

I know csokolom has been commented on can anyone tell me what is the correct response from the woman if

1: a teenager says csokolom as a polite greeting in passing

2: a man of similar age says csokolom as he lets you past

For 1.

From experience and the way it would sound correct to me the response from the older person. In this case a lady would be a response of szerbusz. Although this is also used by people of similar age who greet each other.

For the second No. 2 an appropriate response to the greeting would be a simple good day, Good morning or good night depending on time of day.

That is Jo napot (Kivanok). Jo Reggelt and Jo Estet. (Sorry accents missing).

The csokolom greeting is used by persons who are younger to show repect for their elders both male and female and also for men to show respect for ladies they may not know well enough in the usual way.



Has anyone notice Hungarians say goodbye with the word "Hallo"

Don't know why, just find it annoying.
