I have a ton of different Nintendo consoles and lots of gameboy color cartridges for that reason. Good thing I collected them like 8 years ago because they are stupid expensive now

(reliable) Humidifier recommendations?

It gets very dry where I live at this time of year. This is not just hard on my skin, but the 17% indoor humidity isn’t great for my houseplants. Can anybody recommend a humidifier? My priority is on reliability and although it isn’t essential, it should be able to start up when power is cut and restored via a smart plug....

I am living in a dry region (now it’s like 60% bc it’s winter, but in summer reaches almost 0%humidity). I was like you and also got humidifiers before, but my recommendation is that you forget about it and just let nature do it’s thing and plants adapt to your environment.

Obviously we cannot have ferns, but some plants like hoyas and such, you may be surprised that they adapt at the end and even thrive. At the end you do as you think best, but overcaring for plants that may be sick or cannot live in your climate is too big of a challenge long-term, take that into account

You sound odd, like a child or someone not fluent if you don’t use our misuse the genders of words.

That being said, as native Spanish that lived in the UK for a while, I noticed that genders and verb forms are useful for providing more context when talking.

Cannot think of specific examples now, but in general in a phrase if you don’t hear a word or don’t know the meaning, it is easier to guess it because the rest of the phrase is constructed around the gender and more complex verbal forms.

I did read the first one and liked it a lot, I wanted to continue the series but other stuff gets in the way and recently I’ve been more into gaming than reading 😭

Aside from the accurate list you posted, I felt similarities as well with hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy.

Sleeping with some light (the blinds not shut completely) was a cause for me, along with stress. No light, not able to see anything waking up, no eldritch horrors in the room and I probably fall asleep again.

I’d bet it’s missing sunlight, those things thrive in direct sun.

Second guess is that it’s overwatered… does that pot drain well the water? it should definitely not be sitting in water and I would not water it very often.

It can be a mix of both things

where I live there are shops for laptop, console and phone repairs. I’d keep it simple and go to one of those

I finished Hogwarts legacy, which was a “meh” 6/10 by my taste.

Now I’m playing Dave the Diver and I’m enjoying it a lot, definitely is more than meets the eyes… and the cinematic videos are great 😅🐠

Believe it or not, I’ve read the books and saw all the movies, but was a franchise for which my love decreased as it evolved. So not a huge fan at the end, but the game was not very punishing for knowing or not a lot of lore.

Regardless, the game itself is greatly done in some parts and some others were left without any love. I won’t go into spoilers. The graphics are incredible for being on the switch, and the beginning of the game and mostly the castle are amazingly done with a lot of details and love. You can definitely feel to be a student in hogwarts and it’s great. There are some beasts to interact to, which was also interesting and I had some fun with those mechanics.

The main problem is that at some point most of the missions are outside the castle (which is just land half empty with repetitive areas), which breaks the immersion of the hogwarts-life built in the castle. Partly because of that, some of the story and side missions don’t make a lot of sense to me, which was a bit of a disappointment, mostly towards the end (I think I felt the same about the books/movies 🤔).

I would have translated better without the “a” to make it wrong and same level of absurd.

  • Do you have cat?
  • No
  • Now you do
  • And that’s how I got cat
chiwiu,
@chiwiu@lemmy.world avatar

“un gato”, it’s missing the word “a” in “a cat”, which makes it sound wrong and funnier in spanish than if it’d be written well

chiwiu,
@chiwiu@lemmy.world avatar

you’re right of course, and for me the first panel the sentence sounds correct, but not the last one, where she’s already refering to her cat which is a cat like “gato” only. Maybe not the same asking if you have any car, any boyfriend or any cat as opposed to saying that now you have a cat, which should go with the “a” before. Unless the cat is called “Cat” 😅

I’m not a linguistic and cannot argue the why properly, but the sentence in last panel is definitely off

“coger” means fuck in latin america, but not in Spain where we use it as “grab/pick” normally. It causes fun reactions to latinamericans visiting or living in Spain for sure as it’s used a lot.

“correr” is also “run” in Spanish, we share a lot of words with Portuguese . 🇵🇹

slang but not new slang as it’s widely used and it’s even in the RAE dictionary (31 point).

Seemingly used in central america, Argentina, Bolivia, México, Uruguay, Venezuela and Dominican Republic.

tell me you’re not learning with Shakira songs… native speakers can barely understand her 😅😁

I’m not sure if it’s your style, but search for Extremoduro or Estopa. I’ll link something later if I remember

I check regularly from the creator website instead, which is great with references to its own lore, link here

Prepare for a hardcore zelda-like game with Tunic. I couldn’t finish it for the life of me, too frustrating even though I kinda got through 70% of it

yep, people blinded by rage invest more time to flood places with their message. Sometimes with bots or multi accounts, which… well, speaks for itself how sad it is.

And also that making up facts for discussion takes less time to do than a proper argumentation

probably you’re overwatering, which is the sure way to kill aloes.

Get a pothos instead and it’ll thrive

Does anyone else hoard memes on lemmy for no apparent reason? (mander.xyz)

I’ve been casually browsing lemmy for about 5 months and so far I’ve gathered 1251 memes (or pics generally) on my phone which I almost never bother to share with anyone (I also don’t think they are funny enough to share them with my people) and I barely ever see my collection....

Yep, Western Europe, Spain more precisely. 23 days holidays but at least in my sector it is counting that the working days are Monday - Friday (meaning that you don’t need to include Saturdays in the counting).

Then 13 - 14 bank holidays. And then in my sector an extra 2 days for “personal matters”, like going to the doctor or bank or paperwork appointment.

I keep saying “in my sector” as I work in a normal office job, but teachers or other jobs may have more or differently distributed
