OK, I know it's not a real hack and it's not so important after all, but I think this deserves an post here.

So, the blog googletesting-de.blogspot.com/ now has a new design, a new name and is owned by someone who likes to tests all keys of its keyboard: "vthlalsdacidraissimaddred" is the title of the new first post.

The last update of this blog was made by Christopher Semturs on July 31th, 2008. The blog was launched on the same year googletesting.blogspot.com/200 ...

Apparently Google is testing some advanced German skills.

Hey Tom, thanks for posting. I noticed this as well in my Google Reader :). The team has been looking into what happened here; you're right, it's not a real hack, but it's probably worth reviewing none the less.

Tadeusz, while we're constantly working on new, exciting and groundbreaking technologies, this is not an experiment in advanced German (not even Swiss German, though I think we should definitely do a blog post in Swiss German one of these days, I'm just not sure which dialect to use ...).

You could take example on Google Africa blog, which each post is available in English and in French.

OK I know it's a lot of work... It would be great anyway!
