Re: qepHom cha'DIch (KLBC probably needed)

'oH vItIvqu' je. tlhIngan Hol lujatlhlaHbejbogh ghotpu' vIghom, Hamlet

I really enjoyed it too. I met people who can actually speak Klingon, 
bought Hamlet, Much Ado About Nothing and a new dictionary, heard warriors 
sing battle songs, played Klin Zha... it was great! If it's possible I will 
definitely attend another qepHom!
