I just found this. This is cool on so many different levels (except, perhaps, poetics?) that I don't know where to start. I'm a geek, I know, but--have you guys seen this poem before?

《施氏食獅史》
石室詩士施氏,嗜獅,誓食十獅。
氏時時適市視獅。
十時,適十獅適市。
是時,適施氏適市。
氏視是十獅,恃矢勢,使是十獅逝世。
氏拾是十獅屍,適石室。
石室濕,氏使侍拭石室。
石室拭,氏始試食是十獅。
食時,始識是十獅,實十石獅屍。
試釋是事。

First, I can't believe I've been studying Mandarin for a year and a half and in all this time, until now nobody ever pointed me to this site. It's basically a dictionary but you can use your mouse to draw characters (or a vague approximation of them) and it'll look them up for you. Very useful for finding the meanings of characters you can't pronounce.

Secondly, has anyone had any luck learning bopomofo? I'm learning now because they use it so often here in Taiwan, but I'm not having much luck finding any resources on it except the Wikipedia entry.

What it says on the box. How long have you studied Chinese, and for what reason, and anything else you feel is relevant to the comm!
