Hey Google, fuck you, you indian giver.

Apologies to my Native American readers.

Google has announced that they are deprecating their translation api:

Due to the substantial economic burden caused by extensive abuse, the number of requests you may make per day will be limited and the API will be shut off completely on December 1, 2011.

What that means is that come December, Translation Party will be no more because that translation api was doing all the work behind the scenes translating things back and forth. Are they talking about us when they mention extensive abuse? Maybe. But whatever, I'm mad now.
