I have had a “Coming Soon” page up on the Scratch sub domain for a year or two. I had not bothered much with it after learning that the update to the splendid Scratch was going to be using Flash which was so very wrong. Even Adobe seem to be nudging towards other more appealing options.

As there has been a noticeable increase in visitors looking for Scratch related pages lately I have started remaking them. Just why there should be such an increase is a mystery. Possibly related to the publicity surrounding the launch of the Raspberry Pi one of those “educational” curiosities where you push your computer to one side so you can use the Raspberry Pi, assuming you have a suitable power supply, keyboard, monitor etc. to work with it. Alternatively you could just use Python and Scratch etc. on your computer.

No doubt my humble contributions will be modified and scrapped several times but I will have fun making the videos and the music to accompany them wp-monalisa icon

Although you can select from many languages for the Scratch interface the one that claims to be English is in fact American. So I made a real English version. OK! I just changed color into colour 🙂

If such things matter to you download the euk.po file. Unzip it and pop it into the locale folder within the Scratch application’s folder.
Now you too can enjoy real English like what it’s meant to be.

Before you know it those Americans will have us eating their greasy burgers, drinking fizzy sugared water cola drinks and watching endless repeats of Friends.

If you do not like regular English you can always make something up that sounds like it might be English.
