Re: Tristano's log 2017: wanderlust in the Netherlands

then I will decide what to do with it. In the meantime I'm trying to remember that I can understand more languages than only English and use them during the day (otherwise why did I learn them in first instance?). This made me chuckle. That is the sort of thing which occurs to me on occasion as well.

Re: Rdearman (FR, IT, ZH) 2016/17 - The way of the lazy fist.

Well finally my holiday has arrived! I'm off now until after the gathering and I'm flying over on the Monday. This should give me a little while to get my bearings and to find a good pub. (Priorities you know). So a little reveal, I'm planning on trialing my experiment which I think I mentioned earl...

Re: The Polyglot Gathering, Bratislava 2017

I have Norwegian cookies for the food festival. I hope they don't all get crushed before I get there. I also have licorice boats as a backup. I don't deserve Finnish cookies. I've forgotten everything already. Strangely my little experiment in subs2srs means I haven't forgotten everything. The prob...

Re: Rdearman (FR, IT, ZH) 2016/17 - The way of the lazy fist.

Well I haven't managed to get a lot of study time in over the last couple of weeks. I was in Poland and had to drive to Prague, so I thought I would take my Italian course CD's with me and play on the drive. Except the rental car didn't have any CD player! I had one book with me, but it was in Engli...

Re: Tarvos' новый лог

And in a few days I devoured a Spanish thriller of 480 pages by Eva García Sáenz de Urturi. I've also practiced my presentation for the Polyglot Gathering in English and Spanish. I haven't decided where to add other languages yet, but we'll improvise depending on what languages are present. I feel ...

Re: The Super Challenge rules and registration 2016-2017

Is there any reason to collect the tweets only at 10:05, 11:05 etc? 05 after every hour? I'm fine with that if that's needed of course. (but before making it more frequent it's probably better to delete the pending tweets and stop the loop) It just uses the default 5 minute scheduler on the operati...

It was looping because someone was putting the @superchallengebot in quotations, I asked them to stop and it seems ok.

Re: The Super Challenge rules and registration 2016-2017

Sorry about that. What is the url for the super challenge site? This one here http://sc2016-17.language-learners.org/ This is a problem at the moment. I don't know how technical you are, but I'll give the explanation for (hopefully) both laymen and technical people. I do want to say that I turned t...
