Need Finnish to English translation.


This hasn't much to do with unix. So I should be posting in the correct forum.

Like the subject says: Any Finnish (talking) people that can translate the following for me:

Niin, jonkin sortin kotisivut nämä varmaankin ovat. Tai ainakin näin pitäisi
olla. Tällaisella apologialle tulee aina aloittaa. Sivut ovat jatkuvan
rakennustyön alla, jonkinlaisessa oudossa limbossa, jossa normaalit
luonnonlait tai aika-avaruusjatkumot eivät päde. Mutta katselepa
ympärillesi, varo ansakuoppia ja löydä kulta-aarteet.


No idea what it says, not even if its 'decent'.

What's in it for you?? My everlasting gratitude

Well, It's decent for sure... (God I love my country...) Lol..
It says something like this: (Not sure for a few translations, but...)
**********************'
Yes, this is somekind of a homepage. Or at least, it should be. This is the apology you should allways begin with. These pages are uder continuous construction, in some strange Limbo, where normal rules of nature, or rules of time and space are not working. But look around you, beware of hidden traps, and find the gold treasure.

****************************
..And now for more specific translations:
Apologia: Means a culture of apologing for this and apologing for that...
Aika-avaruusjatkumot: a (umm...) "time-space-loop" (Something to do with Quantum physics and Albert Einstein..)
ansakuoppa: hidden trap-hole on the ground (Like on bear-hunting)


By the way; Where did You find that page? and What page is that (I know where it is, but What???)

Everybody should love Finland, it gave us Linus Torvalds

A colleague of mine asked it. Already send him the translation and asked for some more info. The moment I get it I'll post it here.

BTW: Thanks a million and, as promised, my everlasting gratitude

As promised, although a bit disappointing (for non-finnish reading/speaking people):

http://www.uta.fi/~anton.santanen/

My colleague was 'just' surfing during work and ended up here. No special reason.
