The Arabic course on Duolingo is finally available in beta. Yay!

To be honest I’m not really a big fan of Duolingo’s method but so far my attempts to learn Arabic haven’t lasted so maybe Duolingo will be enough to motivate me to do a little every day.

A native French speaking friend next to me is trying to write a story and is having to look up the conjugations for the passé simple. French is an absurd language.

The next level of rage is if you are running screen and you accidentally press <screenkey> S. Then it locks the screen terminal instead of the outer terminal and confused chaos ensues.

I wonder what percentage of times when people press Ctrl-S they actually intentionally wanted to lock the terminal rather then hitting the wrong key and getting into a confused rage when the terminally inexplicably hangs.

Surely we should just remove this anti-feature by now?

It’s very annoying that Gnome doesn’t have a way to not hide the wifi password when you’re typing it in. 99% of the time you are just copying the password from somewhere else that’s already visible to everyone who could see your screen. Sometimes it’s really long and hard I have to make several attempts to type it correctly.

YouTube is showing me an advert for a creepy pickup artist. What have I done to make YouTube’s algorithm think that would interest me? 😩

I googled SGNTK1D C1A and found a load of other people also worrying that the Heathrow Express has been hacked. Fun

I like how they put this sign here with a large photo of what is directly in front of you in case you can’t be bothered to lift your eyes and look at it yourself :p

Traitement injustement différencié dans le sport : alors que l'une est condamnée à prendre un lourd traitement hormonal si elle veut poursuivre la compétition à haut niveau, on vante les qualités de l'autre et on le dit chanceux que la nature lui ait donné "cet avantage génétique". :feministfist: :feministfist:
