    do you mean xenyl? xenial isn't a word (if it is, you spelled it wrong)

    i agree with elarwhis
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    I believe checking if a word exists is OK, checking and seeing the definition is NOT ok.

    As for xenial, I'd guess relating to the heavens.

    EDIT: after guessing I checked the real meaning...close but no cigar! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
