OK, I suppose I was even more bored, so I had a go at re-writing the web server statistics in Viminian. (And now I'm trying for message #400 ;)
It's probably a really bad attempt, since I only changed the phonology and a small part of the grammar (and made no attempt to account for differences in vocabulary or idiom). Still, you might be interested ;). Stats for my server are available in Latin-1 and in Latin-2 (Latin-2 is recommended if you browser can display it). The language files are also available for download from http://shavian.org/verdurian/analog/analog-howto.html, in case you want Viminian (or Verdurian) in your own web server statistics.
Basically, I made the following changes to the Verdurian:
These sound changes are from the reference on Verdurian dialects.
At first, I had changed all the ls to ws, which caused funny effects because I had left some of the HTTP status codes untranslated -- "Service temporariwy unavaiwabwe" sounded rather Elmer Fudd to me :)

Tana e lyu rozhy. :) And you have the coveted #400 post. You missed one recorded Viminianism, though: soa is pronounced swa.
