Native Language Not Asserted



  • Got these generic warnings from from a new Dell Blade enclosure during setup and install:

    Warning Server Blade 8 Status: Module sensor for Server Blade, transition to non-critical from OK was asserted

    Critical I/O Module 2 Presence: Module sensor for I/O Module, device removed was asserted

    While technically accurate, the are definately not the user friendly/plain language alerts that most people prefer. "Status changed to OK" or "Device XXX Removed" might make more sense when woken up at in the middle of the night by a monitoring system.



  •  Doesn't the first actually mean "Status changed to non-critical"?



  • They're also harder to understand. For example you seem to have mistaken "transition to non-critical from OK" as "transition to OK" - a potentially expensive mistake.



  • "Critical I/O Module 2 Presence: Module sensor for I/O Module, device stolen was asserted"



  • Warning Server Blade 8 Status: Module sensor for Server Blade, (old_top == (((mbinptr) (((char *) &((av)->bins[((1) - 1) * 2])) - __builtin_offsetof (struct malloc_chunk, fd)))) && old_size == 0) || ((unsigned long) (old_size) >= (unsigned long)((((__builtin_offsetof (struct malloc_chunk, fd_nextsize))+((2 * (sizeof(size_t))) - 1)) & ~((2 * (sizeof(size_t))) - 1))) && ((old_top)->size & 0x1) && ((unsigned long)old_end & pagemask) == 0) was asserted



  • I don't not see why this isn't anti-understandable.

    So, that's a quintuple negative..."don't", "not", "isn't", "anti" and the "un" in "understandable" 

    One question - what does "derstandable" mean?

    It's what you become if you're gruntled for too long.

    Apparently it's German for 'the standable'.

    Opposite of dersitchair, of course.

    No, we've been through this already. It's the opposite of understandable.

    Let me see if I have this straight...

    Derstandable - comes from the German and means "able to stand"

    Understandable - the opposite of "derstandable", i.e. unable to stand

     

    Used in a sentence: "I had 8 pints of lager last night and was understandable"

    Nearly right.

    Derstandable is German for 'the standable': that which can be stood, or that which is tolerable.
    Understandable is the opposite: intolerable.

    Used in a sentence: The actions of the Israeli military are completely understandable.

    Just as it is understandable that pussy Europeans would be offended by anyone who doesn't appease tyranny.  You have quite the grasp of the Germany language.  Did your cowardly grandfathers teach it to themselves so they would have an easier time groveling to the invading Nazis?
