That looks Breton to me, but what does it mean?

Given that Morbihan literally means "small sea" (mor, a cognate of Latin mare, French mer and German Meer, meaning "sea", and bihan meaning "small"), I'd guess: "The river is small. The sea is big."

Precisely. Just a stêrish clarification: Breton is much more closely related to Welsh than to Latin or Germanic languages. Given that Welsh for 'Sea' is 'Môr', from Proto-celtic *mori, I'm fairly sure it went the other way round Σ:3

Not quite sure what you mean by that, as the term "cognate" implies a symmetrical relationship: it just means that these words share a common (Proto-Indo-European, in this case) root. I did not mean to state that the Breton word was derived from Latin, but thanks for giving me the opportunity to clarify.

Ok, TIL what cognate means. Sorry, I should have checked before jumping to conclusions.

prepare - the newpage will be prepared now - pieces cut off - links relinked - avatars, attachments, images downloaded - signatures extracted - etc.
..... - a dot is added after one step of this:
1. cut long lines
2,3. find out what's the latest page and how many posts are.
4. update list of post numbers
5. the real work - bot2.awk
OK - newpage was prepared successfully.
upload - and now the newpage will be moved from the temp file to /ott/np (it will be uploaded to the mirror).

Without doing any research, it doesn't appear to be a big leap, to me. In Old English they slapped "ge-" onto the beginning of a bunch of words. Maybe "be-" is a prefix here, too. Therefore the real word would be "zañ". N's can sometimes be considered as a vowel, therefore the only thing that changes is the vowel between "zo" and "zañ". Vowel changes are so transitory that some languages never even considered marking them, such as Hebrew. /not a language major

In the mrobdex story the "(OTTish) Cognitative Engine" doesn't behave very OTTishly.
