Hi Nicola,

I am Italian too and I understood both your letters ;)
I was also looking into the code of educazionik, and there is a lot of
Italians words as variables. I do not know  if that could be a little
problem for   other programmers that want to step in.
There are also the configuration files: they are text file and I guess they
need to have a defined structure for the program to work. It would be good
to have XML files where each field is named in the file itself. I guessyou
need an editor to enable the author of configuration files to be able to do
their own exercise. Also I see that all the string that the GUI shows are
also in Italian, but the code  does not allow for translations.
How do you think you go  about these problems?

Life is short, so learn from your mistakes
And stand behind, the choices that you make

Face each day with both eyes open wide
And try to give don't keep it all inside

                                               Dream Theater
