    Jibber jabber is a sort of croaking, coughing, orcish, language they speak in Zurich.

    That UBS rate does sound bad - maybe it’s negotiable. I expect they pay 900 and something if you go through an agent. I don’t know what a data warehouse is, but it sounds as if it should be more expensive. We keep our data in lakes which has never seemed like a good idea to me.

    It’s distantly related to German, like Romantsch is distantly related to Latin. Germans can learn jibber jabber in a couple of years.
