Do note that in no way or form I think it's ok that personal data is being 'stolen' and sold to third parties without said people knowing. I just thought it was a surprisingly accurate comparison

Had an interesting thought last night. Several years ago you constantly heard big companies claiming piracy was theft, while the pirates kept claiming it wasn't because they were creating copies. Yet now that a lot of these big companies are stealing our personal data, are they really stealing it? I mean, they're creating copies 馃

Odd request, but does somebody perhaps have a suggestion for a Dutch -> German course? Been doing English -> German for about a year through Duolingo but especially with word order converting from English to Dutch to then German in my head quickly get's confusing.
Babbel is not an option as they don't offer course from Dutch sadly 馃槄

Always fun when your prometheus data folder is over 80GB and is starting to cause issues. After you investigate it turns out that the majority of it are folders ending in `.tmp`. To no surprise I could delete them safely, now only have 512MB-ish left and there doesn't seem to be any relevant data lost.. so when this lady started talking I had a more "This really sounds like Dutch" feeling than usual with Swiss German. To no surprise she turns out to be Dutch 馃槀 probably a good example to what I've been saying for quite a while, Swiss German sounds a lot like Dutch

I swear, everytime I think I hear people talking Dutch.. I go a bit closer and try to actually listen what they're saying. Oh never mind, it's Swiss German 馃槀

Me writing German "I forgot this one word, let's look it up online." "Of course it's written the same as in Dutch 馃檮 "

Funny enough said script only had support for a single bank as their customers were all on this one bank. Although it was easy to customize and extend of course.

Sure they never got a lot of users (it was just a 2 man company), but I still think the idea was really cool and supportive for the local community. Sadly the company is gone and the market is mostly gone anyway as most elderly people are just using tablets nowadays (with their own problems of course)

Looking at some old school documents from about 10 years ago while updating my resume. At a company I did an internship where they had a customized ubuntu on their own lightweight machines, slightly modified for elderly people. I had totally forgotten one of my ways of improving their security was killing teamviewer (which was installed by default as we provided remote service) when a banking page was opened. A scam I often hear about in the dutch news nowadays 馃

Hue neat, generally when I need a json formatter I just quickly look for "online json formatter" in duckduckgo. Now it just gave me one as a first result within the page itself.

windows server is like german humor, it does exist, but it isn't fun
