I mean, how else are we supposed to "fight" the coronavirus?


It's just a joke article, by the way. Not worth the trouble if it's giving you a hard time.


It's the stupid hosting service I'm using. You may need to reconnect your Tor circut or try the non-https site.

I really need to be less cheap about these things, sorry!

Nearly 100 Canadian dollars for the *kindle* edition? That's insane!

Same location; 11 years apart. The Radio Canada International (RCI) towers have been gone since 2014. The barn collapsed during the winter. Hundreds of these barns once dotted the landscape a century ago. Only a few now remain. (Note: Wider lens in the followup shot)

There are so few good methods of learning new languages! I know of Duolingo and that's about it.

I want to start a series (or database) of TXT files that just kind of talk about the semantics and grammars of different languages. That way you could read them on any device (I was surprised something like that doesn't exist yet)

Right now the *best* and pretty much only way to learn a language, IMO, is from hardcopy books. It kind of stinks. Not the books, books smell nice, but the situation stinks.
