As long as the word isn't overused for "threshing the empty straw" I don't mind.

It's not easy to invent a derived word that is not in use already. I just thought, that this conversation could be described criticulous, but there it is.

I think everyone on the forum knows the number of words in a dictionary and what are the odds of inventing a new word.
I just thought it would be hilarious to have fun with a hypothetical situation in which someone accidentally invents a new word
and then a half of England adopts it in general use and the other half arm themselves to defends the purity of the English language.
Love or hate, no middle ground in this civilization.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

I get up, I open my email and instantly I smell "spam spam spam".  YUK!!!

Who remembers fried spam from their youth ... 

But I love it when it's been chewed up, spit out, and tossed away!

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

I remember fried Spam. In fact, a couple of years ago, I spotted it in the store and decided to try it, again. It was awful! I don't know whether the Spam changed or I did.

Mushy peas of course?

I remember leaving the pub and ordering faggot chips and peas on many a semi-drunken evening...

Note, for US members, faggot in this case was a sort of deconstructed hamburger gunk with a lot of mysterious non-meat filling (sawdust?), a match for the mushy peas in consistency.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

Yes, that absolutely needed explaining John.

Same as  British Soldier haveing Tea in my house in Petawawa.  My wife metioned she wanted to go to Pembroke in the next day.

Brit says, "Great, I knock you up in the morning than."
ME: "SAY WHAT!"
Brit: "Ummmm I'm guessi
ng that has a different meaning here!"
My red faced wife, "Well, I don't think you meant you wanted to get me pregnant!"

Gotta love some differences.

knock you up - call on you/pick you up

How about "keep your pecker up" = keep your chin up.

And there was the time I felt I was about to get shot, in Alaska, when I asked a guy if I could bum a fag off him ( = can I scrounge a cigarette, in British slang!)

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

^ Maybe not in Alaska, but in many places outside the UK and US the term "fag" still relates to cigs first. Obviously nobody will say "pack of fags" when buying at a store, but in daily-speak it's still quite prevalent amongst those whose first language is English, at least around these parts. Not uncommon for a colleague to say "heading out for a fag" when taking a smoking break at work, for example. Not sure if it's right, but few things are...

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

Worth a read: Actually secure boot (on Fedora, but applies to Debian family as well) --- https://blog.nil.im/?7a

Roadmap:

So first of all, we need to switch from GRUB to systemd-boot. But wait! Don't go follow any tutorial on how to do that - because we're doing things a bit differently. So why do we need to switch? GRUB is very hard to secure. It reads many unverified files and its configuration is by default entirely unverified. It also by default does not verify the initrd. With a lot of work and assembling your own GRUB, it is possible - but this is very error prone, fragile and GRUB recently changed things around so that all the instructions that you will find on how to let GRUB verify everything are outdated. systemd-boot on the other hand is simple: You take the systemd-boot stub, the kernel, the initrd and the boot options and merge it into a single .efi file that you then sign.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

I'd bork my system trying that.

In fact I may have borked my system just reading that.  lol  lol

Imagine having to do all that with every upgrade.

Wonder if something like that could be done in the install scripts.
just a dumb noob thought.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

^ first I heard of it. Actually no, I heard before they were having these discussions somewhere, but not to the point of "fragmenting". FWIW, I don't think PERL, the scripting language, will cease to exist over this.

And a superficial glance seems to suggest that CoC stuff only ignited an already pretty dead & dry underbrush...

I'm just glad the Linux kernel did not, and Mr Torvalds knew when to listen to the sign of the times.
