INFORMAVORE's SUNDAY No 494

DEAR READERS,

This issue, No 494 of my newsletter is especially informative, first of all for those who think that the BRAIN is an organ of great importance- many good writings about brain.
A actually two analyses of the feedback- to my appeal regarding
my 20 Rules of Problem Solving made accessible in as many languages as possible- see http://egooutpeters.blogspot.com/2012/02/problem-solving-quasi-desperate-appeal.html 5 days from launching this.

FIRST ANALYSIS: the situation is excellent, we have already the texts in Swedish, French, Portuguese, Italian, Polish; many promises, wonderful contacts with people and cultures.

SECOND ANALYSIS: Taking in account these:
e.g. the fact that we have no translations in all the Great languages spoken by hundreds of millions of people- the situation is a complete catastrophe. My appeal is therefore not more quasi-. just desperate. PLEASE HELP! People of all languages unite
to solve your problems!

Peter

    1. Thank you! Both from principle and due to lack of money for
      this investment I cannot hire an app developer, but I will not claim copy-right if somebody wants to make good money from the Problem Solving Rules. It is important that he Rules should be applied- they are useful.
