Two days after my first Anki deck (a collection of flashcards for the Anki spaced repetition memorization program) I've finished an Icelandic deck as well, as doing a search online for shared decks there was nothing at all for Icelandic. That means a search will now turn up this one result:
The Afrikaans deck I uploaded two days ago has been downloaded five times, so not a great deal of interest in Afrikaans it would seem. We'll find out soon enough if Icelandic is more or less popular than Afrikaans.
I wrote in the last post that Icelandic would take a long time to do because I usually need Abctajpu on Firefox to type in it, but it turns out that the international Dvorak keyboard layout I have doesn't just type accented characters using dead keys, but can also do so using the right alt key, and the Icelandic þ and ð are included. I use Google Chrome about 90% of the time already, and this will increase that by a bit more..
The Sambahsa deck is also going well, should be done in a day or two. No accented characters there so it's a breeze.
