Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

I watched this vid on youtube about this the other day and i have to say it is correct for a good number of applications.

Dotfiles everywhere....

It would be nice if programs dropped dotfiles/config files where they are meant to reside, $HOME.config

now, researching chess i realised it might have two different roots, i.e. the english word "chess" has nothing to do with "šakki" or the german word "Schach" which is derived from "shah", i.e. persian for king. "chess" otoh is derived from an indian game called "chaturanga"....

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

Had an old smartphone stored since 2016, a samsung s5. I thought i would take a look at it and maybe put lineage OS on it or some other mod that suited the phone. Good reason not to store your batteries in smartphones for long periods of time,  as soon as i recharged it the battery bulged and looked like it was about to explode out the back of the phone, phone was warm to hot so just caught it in time. Good lesson there! New battery only cost $15 so not worth doing what this idiot below did....

Dont do this....

For chess: Cyrilic: Шах or Latin: Šah.

We have both, Cyrilic and Latin.

Cyrilic is "one letter - one sound", while latin has two letters for some sounds.

Cyrilic Latin
Ј       J  - like 'Y' in 'You'

Л       L
Љ      Lj

Н       N
Њ      Nj

Д       D
Џ       Dž

One interesting thing about Š, Č, Ć, and Ž is that
the apostrophe above each letter shows the position of the tongue.

Kupusara (pita sa kupusom/pie with the cabbage)

But it's sometimes used for books or notebooks as a colloquial term.

A book can be "kupusara" when you do not know where the beginning is and where it ends.
Probably because it's pages are greasy and tattered.
Maybe even with some coffee stains.

Such a book bares an epithet "raskupusana".
To better explain it I'll invent a new term de-cabbage-ized, ras-kupus-ana, decabbageized lol
Like when you mess up a cabbage by removing it's leaves. Or when rabbit messes up a cabbage. Hard to explain...

It's sometimes used as a joke when someone's hair or clothes are messed up. smile

Or even as a derogatory/provocative name for the GNU/Linux commonly used by members of MS Windows camp in the (endless) internet discussions about Windows vs Linux.

Russian is a difficult languge but it's much easier for us then the westerners or asians.
My friend went to Russia and had to attend a language seminar that lasts for six months, to be able to apply for citizenship.

For people that latin alphabet, like western Europeans it lasts for at least one year.
For Chinese and Indians it's at least two years of study.
The exam was so tough, it lasted for an hour but had so many questions.

Oh, just remembered of a funny story.
One time when a Yugoslav army went to Moscow on a Victory Day ceremony, the soldiers had a big inscription on a flag in Cyrilic:
"Наша армија - наш понос"
"Our army - our pride"

The Russians were giggling all the time, apparently a word "понос" means diarrhea in Russian. big_smile

Unless they happen to have a bad case of понос. Potentially, very messy.

German Cartel Office resists facebook:

they're not just "concerned", they're demanding things that will be heavily fined if not complied with after some time. concerning german users, i presume.
together with some other EU-wide privacy-related measures against facebook and google, this is looking very good.
the plot thickens.

The EU get plenty of criticism for excessive bureaucracy, but they do good work too, standing up to the big money in a way you'd be less likely to see in the US.

PS I'm quite devastated about Brexit.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

The error was joining to start with "Brentrance" rather than "Brexit".  Joining guaranteed leaving would be a mess. 
France should have continued to veto "Brentrance", would have saved two votes, endless other stuff & there'd be no "Brexit". 

Politicians, if Labour say it's sunny, the Torys say it's raining, & the LibDems say it's snowing.. then put your crash helmet on because it's HAIL outside, not one of them capable of speaking the truth even by accident. 

Easy way to tell if someone's unfit to govern: They joined a political party.

Anyone who thinks we'll ever actually be free of the EU again, in or out, deal or no deal, is one of the same delusional lot who believes that those phone calls really *are* from Microsoft though.

^ didn't a great percentage of the UK vote to leave the EU due to unreasonable constraints on how the UK can govern itself? The people voted and are not being listened to imo, brexit is being railroaded into oblivion, dont forget that there are many people who are adversely affected by Fortress EU rule.

52% voted to "leave" - 37% of the electorate, on a 72% turnout: this could never be be considered "a great percentage of the UK". 
Presumably they voted for a variety of reasons - and they weren't asked what the terms of leaving should be. Many probably disregarded the warnings about the consequences.

wait a minute, it was a 100% turnout of those who cared enough to turn out. That means 52% of the electorate with enough political will actually turned up and imposed their will over the mixture of the 28% who couldnt be bothered and those who voted remain. If people cant be bothered to vote they shouldnt be counted in the statistics

^ I was pointing out that it wasn't a "a great percentage of the UK". 

Maybe a super-majority vote should have been implemented in order to overturn the result of the previous referendum about the EU, when 67% of the voters were in favour of staying.
