Some wag thought that it would be good to randomise it knowing that lots of people would talk about it.
I thought about that. Seriously. In case anyone hasn't noticed the new WMT, or hasn't been checking every five minutes, they will now :)
Based on your past user behaviour Google has learned that your subconciousness had decided to take language courses
This would be a terrific explanation-- except that my accept-language headers are as long as your arm, suggesting that they're only throwing languages at people who are not interested. Does anyone hereabouts have their first-choice language set to anything other than English? I think everyone in this thread is a native speaker.
Doesn't seem to be browser-based. I get the same page in all five. (MSIE predictably doesn't work. It claims to want more cookies, but it's lying in its teeth. I checked. Didn't try Lynx.) How 'bout: Some particular category has to have a non-zero value? Or: they goofed at a fundamental level, so if any category has a value greater than 255 the whole thing goes haywire.
Then again, they may be holding some special bug in reserve just for me ;)
