De-localization



  • I picked up a new Fellowes mouse pad this afternoon. The back of the package looked like the standard description-in-3-languages deal, but closer inspection revealed a rather interesting internationalization approach:

    The pad itself is great: very smooth and snuggly sticks to the desk.



  • It would be illegal in Québec, I think.

    On the top-left corner, you forgot to annotate "PROTECTED BY ⋅ PROTÉGÉ PAR ⋅ PROTECTED BY" (english ⋅ french ⋅ english). Also, on the top-right, "La protection antibactérien[1] continue de Microban" is translated, but not the line under it...

    [1] should be: antibactérienne

    Pretty much everything worth doing is illegal in Quebec. 



  • How much do you think an English-German-French translator makes?  It seems like the world may need me after all...



  • I'm sure the current or some future version of SwampSearch could have been used to translate that...

    ...randomly.

    As the recently voted in support developer on that project...  Gee thanks for adding to my feature list.  More things I have to add with no time to do it in.  I'm gonna go surf porn now.

    BEST USE OF SpectateSwampCommandLineScreenSaver!  DL a bunch of porn, then watch it in random order ... "wait, why is she putting her clothes on?" 

    Then create a spider to download your porn for you.  I've created a crude program to do this, though not with porn.

    Fixed that for you.

    Ooh, great idea: SwampWget. You don't even have to give it an argument, it will randomly "search" (by guessing URLs) the Internet for ... like, random images. Maybe some of them will be porn.



  • This can only end poorly.  Filter your Asian results or you might end up with a Google Sepuku (put in a search term aquired from a Japanese website--or other pictogram based language you don't know--and paste it into Google Image search, scroll through the results until you find something that makes you wish you'd never played (most people get to about 12 pages)).
