comment Character and word frequencies
kFrequency isn't a very accurate frequency guage. For one thing, it only has about 5089 characters. Second, it only ranks characters on a scale of 1 to 5. Third, it's from usenet data... a bit old.

comment Difference between 佈 and 布
I wouldn't trust numbers by google.. especially on trad/simp issues like this. There are too many places where it could go wrong.

comment What readers are available at the 1,000 word level?
@Village, This doesn't feel like the right place to talk about this, but I'm working on a website that might be just what you're looking for. It's going into private beta this weekend, and I'll need learners like you to test it out, so if you're interested, please sign up to be a beta tester.

comment Does 危机 really mean both crisis and opportunity?
No. But it's sad how far this rumor has gone. I've even heard Chinese hosts on CCTV-9 say this garbage. Think of how callous one would have to be to say this: Oooh look, Hurricane Katrina wrecked New Orleans... what an opportunity for gain!
