Grid-Themed Survival Italian part II

Feel free to correct my Italian! Is anyone else learning phrases they want to use in Catania?

Great job again!

Here you have some minor corrections:

- What's your name? = Qual'è il suo nome?
- Which Grid Project are you with? = In quale progetto Grid stai/state (polite) lavorando?
- Do you use... = Adoperate...
(I would add GridWay and OpenNebula to the list ;-D)
- Enjoy! = Buon appetito!

Thanks again Jose! I think perhaps I'm out of my league with Italian! :-)

At the bar : I'm going to need something stronger than this caffe' macchiato, my jobs won't run - mi servira' qualcosa un po' piu' forte di questo caffe' macchiato - non girano i miei job !

Don't worry Danielle! Again, great job!

Brusisceddu... something stronger than a REAL ITALIAN macchiato? :-P

Jose', what you drink at the bar says a lot about you (and how your jobs are going). Being formerly from Sardina, you can always tell when things are going bad when people are drinking fil'u ferru (a particularly strong grappa). When things go well, though, you will find the island's favourite drink, mirto. Being in Sicily though, something like amaro Averna would be the case. However, you can score points in the morning with the barista by ordering the Sicilian standard breakfast : granita and brioche :)

Mmmm... it would be nice to add this kind of extensions to the output generated by the glite-job-status or gwps commands ;-).
