Ah, Finnish. I *thought* it looked like a Nordic language, but I too looked at .to and thought maybe it was some funny Mauritian language or the other.
Finnish isn't Nordic, except by courtesy. The Finns hacked their way off the steppe into Europe along with the Estonians and Hungarians. Those three languages aren't even Indo-European.

Tuvalu. Collection of bits of coral strung out along half the Pacific. Gonna be awash when the ice caps melt. Tivoli is a computer-related company that a friend of mine works for in Texas.

This pontification brought to you by the letters e, g, o and the number i. May contain nuts.

^ Possibly, but it's pretty obviously referring to the movie. If you've seen that, you should be okay.
