k, should be fixed now (cant get the cvs version to work tho... guess
i'll have to update more stuff... but im moving to fedora core 1 soon,
so i wont put much effort in updating my distro now)

I updated the nl.po file (http://www.megamediamagazine.nl/nl.po), hope it works this time. (i used the
cvs version and your explenation, didnt see much difference with the original one I translated tho)
