am.wikipedia.org is the address.

For the rest of us who do not read or write Amharic, enjoy the following pictures from Northern Ethiopia:

Melat Demeke,

I am so proud and happy to see that. It is indeed an amazing news. Also, Microsoft has just released Vista and Window 7 in Amharic. Geez is one of the oldest alphabet till today proves that Ethiopia had immaculate intelligence capabilities that is nonparallel. Our Geez is still marching towards techno-era in the 21 century undeterred. I wish those Intelligent Guru Ethiopians who were responsible in developing the writing and counting system of GEEZ could be able to witness how GEEZ changed Ethiopia's Identity for time to come. Thank you for sharing.

It is not Geez. it is Amharic. Geez is Sabean, Sabean is Phoenician, Phoenecian is Sumerian.

no it is Amharic. But thanks for the great encouragement.

I peg you pardon, there is no alphabet called "AMHARIC"

For you lack of information, Amharic is a communication language and it's syllabic script alphabet is Geez. Ge'ez is to Ethiopia as Latin is to the west.

So if you called it Amharic, then the Tigreans should call it Tigre, Guragues call it Gurague, Hararis call it Harari? I must be missing something. My points is Tigrigna uses some syllables represented by some unique fidel charaters not used in Amharic and vise versa, so then Tigreans should call the Fidel matrix as Tigre?

I agree with MELAT. For the same reason the Geez is not called Phoenician, the Amharic should not be called Geez.

Nice website, am.wikipedia.org

yeah contribute, you will be proud of yourself. To do that you need to be good in typing Amharic. Ifs easy to learn specially if you use Keyman, since it use the same keyboard layout you use on the latin keybaord you use for English.

This is a chance for some of you to have an outlet of the love you have for your country and your community.

When you start doing something positive, you will not be affected and so will not respond to negative things.

We need eachother. No effort is insignificant. One's positive activity no matter how tiny it is will be much bigger than 10 thousand of one's posts in topix.

Get involved, contribute in your community, learn to unite your effort with others. Learn to be led.
