Here's a link to the French translation:

Hi Chris,

You're kidding right? I had a quick look at the weblink and think it is friggin' rediculous to subject the game to such mathematical analysis. Are you *that* interested in winning this game? I know who beat you first time you played, but com'on? Hmmm, if you're indeed that interested you could pay me to translate ;-)

Doei!

How could I know it is a mathematical treatise without a translation?

I guess the graphs would be a good clue...

Some people, very very weird people, who in a just world, would be drawn and quartered, like math and statistics and probability.

Any idea how to read it through the google translator? Something about their frames screws up it up for me.

because of the frameset and the javascript I use to load the navigation frame the online translation engines won't work if call via the browser. I'll try putting a translate button within the frame maybe that works. As a temporary fix you could try to disable javascipt in your browser and then call the Google translate engine with the URL of the article. But I'm not sure if that works in all cases.

okay, the TRANSLATE button is there and works. The Google translation looks rather - well, googled? Hope that you are able to make some sense of it.
