@klaatu ...the point where the English and Spanish speakers know Chinese enough and the Chinese speakers know either English or Spanish enough so that as a group we can take over the evil government ruling the good Chinese speaking nurses.

Or any other variation on the theme or a different theme.

But do you think such an RPG could work?

Thought more about the turning language learning into a game. Specifically an RPG and thought of you. I wonder if it were an RPG where the people of the game didn't need to know the same language. Taking the hospital scenario, two nurses who knew one language could be good guys working for the bad regime. Lets say the both know Chinese. One has a patient who knows English and one has a patient who knows Spanish. The goal for them is to learn those that language enough to get to....

There are 1154 lines of code for my MUD, and 1620 lines of documentation.

My position has evolved. I know think EVERYONE should own a gun. Specifically, this model.

I still use IRC every single day and will for years to come. It has incredible longevity and I love it a lot. thanks to all the people who've kept one of few truly open protocols where a normal human can feasibly write a client alive.

Scripting is like telling a man to help you do the chores. You have to state exactly what to do and how to do it and they will do it to measure and no more. And sometimes if you’re not polite enough they flip the table. Why can’t I find a computer that knows exactly what I want

I want to tell my wife I'm smarter than she is.

The problem is she's too smart for that.

The problem is she can tell when I'm lying.

I barely did 7 years in all my schooling :)

No one needs to starve. No one needs to freeze. No one needs to die. There is enough for everyone. More empty homes than all the people without them, more food than grocers can even sell. The labor and the materials to end scarcity exist now. It is not a far-off dream. We can end scarcity in this life.

Watching the unaired Batgirl pilot from the 60s/70s. I think the opening words would be considered quite offensive these days.

From memory: Gotham like any modern city is full of women of all shapes and sizes. Stenographers, nurses, librarians, secretaries, etc.

Can anyone enlighten me as to the reason libreoffice ALWAYS has files to recover when I launch it? This has been happening for years. Since the openoffice days.

Wait, I'm right handed and I do hold it with my left.

Watched Gattaca again. I sure do like Uma Thurman.

So I found this at Goodill for $8. Now I have to find some hair to remove. I don't suppose there's a way one could suggest such a thing to their spouse and survive is there?
