We also have some constraints built in by evolution, but yeah.

Surely the only languages that are not weird are those specifically designed to be widely spoken?

And no-one wants to speak those!

Swedish is like Linux. It's quite obvious how the language works, and you can make your own words if you care to.

French is Apple. Try to make your own modifications and they will SEND YOU TO JAIL.

English is your grandparents' PC. We have no idea how it works. Where did all these weird plug-in words come from????

@Loukas
And there alternate distributions of Nordic languages that are exactly the same, only done differently.

Many people canceled their Openai subscriptions, or it is tough to monetize stuff created with generative AI, I guess, so Sama comes with a new plan to use all those GPUs. They are now going after OF models. WTF OpenAI? They are going to allow deepfake? This company is beyond evil 👿

@melroy

And Open is a lie, and AI is ... ?

"Who goes there", John Campbell, 1938.

(And I seem to recall more movies that are rehashes of that novella.)

Yeah , but ...

In Paris we fought and were massacred.
In Korea/Manchuria we fought and were massacred.
In Ukraine we fought and were massacred.
And as you say in Spain we fought, but then we were massacred.

There's more of course, but you get the idea.

Something probably should be done differently in the future.

So, yeah, looking at those examples I'd say we should try to prevent our opponets from going fascist.

If there's anything fascists are good at it's murdering lots and lots of people, so Id say we should stop them from gaining a following or try to remove their following if they already got one.

Easier said then done, but, to steal your words, doesn't mean it's impossible.

It's German, and you're about as right as anyone trying to say a German word in English can expect to get.

Some of the flickering can be gotten rid of by disabling hardware-acceleration for qtwebengine.

I've got
`export QTWEBENGINE_DISABLE_GPU_THREAD=1

export QTWEBENGINE_CHROMIUM_FLAGS="--disable-gpu-compositing --num-raster-threads=1 --enable-viewport --main-frame-resizes-are-orientation-changes --disable-composited-antialiasing"`
in .bashrc.

Note that there is still enough flickering left to annoy, and some (appimage?) apps dont seem to register the setting.

Yeah, and it's wrong.
Nioghalvfems is 9 + 1/2 * 5 * 20!
NOT that silly 9+(4+1/2)*20.

What do they take us for? Calculators?

pragmakist,

Niti og ni, 9*10+9 was used in Danish on cheques.
I doubt those exist anymore, though.

I think what's happening in the US today rhymes hard on the fall of the Roman Republic.

And I'm sorry, but I don't think the people won back then.

Det er også en hel del ting der ville gå nemmere hvis andre stater brugte samme software.

Det giver mening at forsøge at gøre tingene globalt brugbare.

Or Earth.

Pieces of Earth was do doubt also flung about.

Somebody missed out on doing some simple, bog standard population dynamics.

You have r(t) rabbits, where r= ...

Hopefully they are enough to disperse Russian anti-aircraft defences.

Things are often overdetermined.

I'd say your two possible explantions are each well over 50% of the reason this happened.

pragmakist,

Heh. I used to run leafnode as my own, in house, single person server.

I'm quite surprised to find out it's still alive and maintained.

You make larger districts that elect more than one representative each.

Or at least that was how it was done here in Denmark.

pragmakist,

Yeah.

And we can still block entire sites on the web.

The sites the friends with adblockers promote.
The friends who don't notice what they promote.
What unholy bastards the people who own the sites they promote are.
