It's not that there is not discussion between different sides anymore, it's that there's more of it and this is what it looks like

@Stoori @alva A quick intro to qalb, a functional programming language natively in Arabic: youtube.com/watch?v=77KAHPZUR8

@Stoori @alva
also let's not forget that most of Aristotle's works wouldn't have been preserved if Arab scholars hadn't taken a keen interest in them

Then I also get to test my hypothesis that a more information-dense language (that encodes more information in each word) is better suited as a base language for translations. Many translations are quite poor due to the ambiguity of English. You need more context than what a short text string provides, to be able to translate it well.

For the next program I write, I'll try to not use English as the main language. Seems so sad that it's the default and often only [fully] supported language even in software primarily created by people whose native language is something else. If people who don't speak English can learn it in order to use a program or whatever, then surely English speakers can do the same?

Continually irritated because every time I try to go out in public, the public is there??

The space key of my Keyboardio Model 01 stopped working. :(

It was stucking to repeat the space until another key was pressed, so I tried the usual anti-chatterig measure aka isopropanol. After that the key does nothing, so I guess it shorted and broke down.

Warranty has ended already, so now I just remapped some keys and must learn new routines. It sucks.

And no, I'm not able to use a soldering iron. I consider instabanning everyone who mentions soldering.

“Hearing-centric design in video chat apps”

Comparing Discord, Google Hangouts, Google Meet, Houseparty, Jitsi Meet, Skype, Zoom.

In general: cropping, chat overlays affected ASL. Captions meh. Screen sharing kills video feed.

Woah, it's been a while since I've started crying while writing fiction. I guess this is a good story then.

silly ”death to [regime]” take 

on July 4th is like asking ”when's the international men's day” on March 8th.

Just FYI: day is on May 9th (aka Europe Day).

I've been studying Finnish for three days and it's already easier than the scam that is French.

Experimental linguistics is when linguists synthesize phones in the lab in order to fill up the IPA consonant chart.
