I proudly announce: discoverb!
What is discoverb?
Discoverb is a python program. It is a way to test the words you've learned. You can tell discoverb what a word means (by putting it in a file) and discoverb will ask you the meaning of the word. It writes all words you do not know, when you give the wrong anwser, to a file. A word can have more than one meaning, sometimes the program will ask you all meanings of a word, and sometimes only one. That depends on what you write into the file.
Discoverb is still in a very early stage of development, it's absolutly unstable at the moment. I still have to write a GUI. But I'm working quite hard at it. I still have to write a manual. When I have more of such things, I'll announce it at "larger" places, like freshmeat, download.com (it's cross-platform), and many, many portals.
I will often release a new version, but I won't announce the small ones everywhere. There is a discoverb mailinglist at firstname.lastname@example.org, you can subscribe by sending an email to email@example.com, with in the body: subscribe discoverb. Every improvement will be announced there.
