    Hey folks, I just showed up to my new home for the next 3 years in Atsugi Japan. I noticed google is in all japanese now, Since i cannot google the question (because it comes out in japanese) is there a chance someone could do it for me, or help me out with how to re-vert it to english. I know there is an easy way to do it with PC by editing certain files. but i have no idea with mac.

    I am using OSX

    THANKYOU!

    THANKYOU! you just saved me loads of confusion!

    PS: to those who do not want to click the link, all you need to do is go to

    http://www.google.com/ncr

    This downloads a cookie that prevents google from ever going to the closest Language setting. And is reversible by simply deleting all cookies.

    It helped me setting the standard language. But GGJstudios's link is probably working better. What can you expect from an old and bald Harley fanatic?

    Hey! No one said anything about baldness! In fact, the opposite is true! :D

    I already imagined it when I wrote about the baldness. But the word bald sounds somehow better. Hairy sounds like Harry and opens a lot more associations. Next time I will call you a hairy beast of the street, with a beard and all that beaver *****.
    Anyway, I forgot to link to the malware FAQ or something similar obtuse.

    And my flatmate has his cartoon themes from the 80s phase. Yeah.
