The second half is below the string of asterisks (*********) and starts with a question:

"If Jaromir is by himself for some time, how messy does his place get?"

The translation probably still has a lot of grammatical errors to be corrected later.

Enjoy!

Tomas, I know this has been repeated over and over again on LGP.

But...

Thank you sooooo much. It's so wonderful to get a glimpse of the "Eastern Block" persepctive through your translations.

Again, much appreciated!

Location: Source, Destination, Protocol, Port, size, sequence number, check sum... Yep, that about covers it.

You are welcome, though I don't think that the interview provides a glimpse of the "Eastern Bloc" perspective at all. I found Mrs. Jagr's quotes absolutely fascinating, because she describes a relationship so much *unlike* any "typical" Czech mother-son relation. Relationship full of co-dependencies, her strong influence over his life decisions... At the same time I sensed her frustrations over some of his choices and perceived lack of respect for her on his part (incidentally, I can say that calling a mother by her first name is virtually unheard of in "typical" Czech families).

I don't want pass any judgement, though, because it seems that such an arrangement has worked fine for both of them. You hear of similar stories more in the context of classical music virtuosos or other artists, but hey - if that's what Jaromir needs to be the hockey "virtuoso" and if his mother does not mind - more power to them!

Still, very unusual...
