Hi Lucyna, Tomas, Val. and everybody.

ok, now I know at least two persons who use Esperanto, but that is not 
task ;-)
yes Signuno is not Gestuno.  I  agree with Tomas (you can see I wrote 
"at least Gestuno-English :-) )
Val thanks for ofering me to be editor of Gestuno dicionary, but I don't 
know it very well.

That is great idea to have multilingual Gestuno dictionary, or "global 
multilingual dictionary" but I guess it is quite difficult to create 
it.. but maybe one day...

have a nice weekend
