@jdll Bonjour ! J’ai parlé des installs party à une amie qui voulait de l’aide pour installer Linux sur son ordi, et pourtant je ne trouve pas d’information sur ça sur le site web des JDLL. Est-ce que ces partys vont vraiment prendre place ce week-end ? Merci

And the language exams don’t test things like what the heck do you do if you’ve already said “bonjour” to someone and you want to get their attention a second time without being impolite?

Also, the things that are supposed to difficult, like expressing an opinion on an article about fracking, are way easier than trying to understand an everyday conversation between two French people. For some reason ordering a sandwich requires super precise pronunciation even though you are pointing at the thing you want and then you have to understand whatever unexpected vocabulary the server might fling at you in response.

Language exams are sort of nonsense really aren’t they? I mean I passed the C1 French exam but I still have trouble asking for a sandwich in a bakery.

Le saviez-vous ? Le verbe aimer n’existe pas en tant que tel en néerlandais.

Alors évidemment, on en exprime bien l’idée. Couramment, c’est « houden van », qui techniquement veut dire « tenir à ». S’applique aux gens, objets, activités...

Un « j’aime » sur Fb, c’est un « vind ik leuk », un « je trouve ça bien / sympa / amusant ».

À une personne, on peut aussi dire « ik heb je lief », « tu m’es précieux-se ». Amour se traduit d’ailleurs par liefde, ce qui nous est agréable, aimable, précieux.

Isn’t it weird that it’s ok for parliament to vote twice on exactly the same deal because the first time TM didn’t get the result she wanted, but giving the public a second vote is “undemocratic”.

The library just sent me an email saying they are going to reset *everyone’s* password to be their last name + the year of their date of birth. With zero notice. Is that a good idea? Because it seems very much like a not good idea.

Also apparently they are doing it to improve security… somehow 🤔

I wrote another blog post about VkRunner. One blog post per year is probably enough, right? 😆
