I have accidentally found film photos i have made of these kids and maize in Shoushi, Artsakh. First I did film photos, then to make sure, i have them, the digital one. Then, I had an impression, that film photos have been spoiled and have had published only the digital version. The third photo was made with canon 450d, pentacon 28mm lenses on a crop sensor. I have already published it somewhere on this or my Armenian language stream, I believe. The first two photos are on black and white film, Kodak CFT (which is not a film for photography, but for the medical purposes), and Mamiya-ZE2 with 50mm lenses, and that camera, unfortunately, leaked light.

I woudl like to quote this post, instead of resharing because I don’t agree with everything there. I don’t think we have to forget our native languages, that’s why comparison to the switch from facebook to diaspora, which was made there seems deeply not right to me. I personally value my language, and it doesn’t make me feel good when I acknowledge threats it has.

Also, I have to say that I also fear simplicity in design. Simplicity can mean gaining flexibility and expressiveness, like in case with Oberon operating system and language, and it can mean something like Newlang, the language which was simple but was designed in order to rule those people.

Simplicity can also mean “don’t know what pointer is” which, I believe is wrong, because every programmer should know what pointer is. Simplicity can mean making phonemic orthography, and I am opponent of that. That approach, taken by communists, in my opinion, damaged Armenian orthography and language.

So I believe, simplicity does not always mean good design. However, good design is very often simple. Now the quote.

English vs. Esperanto:

English:

You sang nicely, AND You have sung nicely, AND You had sung nicely, AND You did sing nicely , AND You did use to sing nicely, AND You were singing nicely, AND You used to sing nicely.

Esperanto:

Vi kantis bele. :-)

On the X axis you see the number of threads that the program creates. On the Y axis you see the arithmetic mean of the run time over 10 runs. The green line is Haskell, the red line is C. Haskell is almost 10 times faster. Control.Concurrent kicked pthreads’ ass, leaving it no chances.

I just found this #comparison I made in #2009. I was working in some company and suggested them to use #Gentoo on #reiserfs instead of #RHEL on #ext3. I have assembled a gentoo system, and they did the tests. These are results. Blue - my gentoo Red - #RedHat This is text they sent to me.
