Hello, I see three contest entries from you, the most recent being from January 2020. Something must have gone wrong when you posted your knick-knacks entry. I cannot tell whether that was a technical glitch or a user error. Crossing my fingers that your next submission will be successful!

Hi Gerjan,

I wasn't thinking about the language per se, more about the technical specs of the equipment so as to help ensuring that the specs are correct. :)
