My take would be he just didn't focus on the domain name. Sysadmins
usually decipher those into geographical location easily. I admire Europe:
everybody speaks multiple languages. BTW one of our professors brought
this joke when he came back from Europe. If I wasn't sure the joke has
long-long beard I would think he made it up himself...: Person who speaks
2 languages: bilingual, 3 languages: trilingual; 1 language: American ;-)
