1 The search definitions
are completely in lower case. You will find that a lot of people
have Pelz as a surname, so perhaps it is best to avoid
looking for Pelz only.
2 The Spanish piel also means `leather'. Very annoying, yes.
The underlined words point to search definitions in Metacrawler, a meta-search engine that makes use of a number of the big search engines on the web (Altavista, Webcrawler, Yahoo, etc.etc.). Under the name of the countries you will find adresses of local search engines - not mirror sites, but engines meant to search in a that country or language area. At times these can be very useful.
HINT: If you want to have quicker access to this page, just save it to your own harddisk. It will work just the same but faster.
The languages included are - in case you can't comprehend the first column - English, French, German, Dutch, Italian, Spanish and Catalan. I will gladly include others on request, but only if you give me at least some of the translations. For technical reasons Russian, Greek, Chinese, Japanese and other languages that use a non-Latin alfabet are also not included. Look up a webpage in any of those languages and you will know why. Apart from that, this selection is only limited by my collection of dictionaries and language knowledge, not by any preference for or against your native tongue, whatever that may be.
If you find mistakes in this list - there are bound to be some - don't get angry, just let me know.
Finally, this list is not meant for solipsistic droolers, mouse potatoes and other sociopaths. If you find a really cool new link using this list, let me know so I can include it on the Mikhail's Soft Spot page and everybody else con join in the fun. That page should give you an idea of what I like. I am not interested in plain fur shop adress listings or in classified ads; solitary fur pictures can be posted in the Fur Forum of Ntcweb.
Don't expect that others let you share in their fun, if you don't let them share in yours!
