DuSaQ, not DuSaq. And were they really SoSbor'a'mey?  In today's computer
terms, I would only expect <SoSbor'a'> to be applied to a mainframe or a
multiprocessor, refrigerator sized server machine.

<Sugh> is "install in office", which I suspect is basically what the Chief
Justice of the US does to the new President. <jom> is "install a device",
and it probably also extends to the virtual sense of installing a piece of

<teywI'> means "file", in the sense of a metal tool. See <tey> - "scrape". I
am quite certain it cannot be used to refer to a data file. You could just
use plain old <De'>, though. The verb prefix would probably change to <wI->
with <De'>.

'Iv chaH vu'wI'pu'vam'e'? lo'wI'pu' Daqel 'e' DaHech'a'?

I think you meant <... DIqIlqangqu'>. Otherwise good.

<tlhoj> would probably be better than <Qub> here.

I don't think you need the <-pu'> on <qay'>. And even as annoyed as you are
at your users, you  should still use <-pu'> rather than <-mey> for the

Overall very good. Most of my corrections were pretty minor. maj.
