@chriswere I've actually heard the "fonts made for dyslexic people" is mostly psuedo-science, I do enjoy the meme status of Comic * fonts however - I recall a presentation when an OpenBSD dev claimed to have weaponized it! https://www.openbsd.org/papers/bsdcan14-libressl/mgp00025.html
I've been looking up new words and their roots, I wanted to find the root for volapukajxo, meaning "nonsense" or "gibberish" and I couldn't find it, All I found was "Volapük" so I looked it up on Wikipedia.
Turns out it was another conlang from the same era.
It would be like if Linux had an error message saying "Kernel BSDed".
@shonalika's video has helped me get far more people interested in Mastodon than my own, far-too-tech-focused explanation ever could. It's not new, so y'all probably already know it, but those that don't should add it to their recruiting toolbox because it's amazing!
@emacsen wow that is a great song, thanks for sharing :)
Translating stuff would definitely be a great exercise, might have to merge that with my current interest of Gemini 🤔
@emacsen yes the spelling was definitely a problem, however I did find Esperanto’s regular spelling to be much easier to grasp than my native tongue (English). What tools are you using to learn atm?
@emacsen I was using duolingo (proprietary, sorry) and it really focused on showing and not telling. Very heavy on the vocab, not so much grammar on the stages I was at.
@emacsen I was studying it months ago, I should pick it back up - nice learn a skill, really helps the depression
