Love / Do Poles ignore domestic abuse? [54]

I think it's like everywhere else there are circles mainly pathological.. where it will go without a notice, I had some arguments with my gf and I've seen some couples arguing and other people reacted trying to calm down everyone.. on the other hand it was never anything serious, just an average quarrel, difference in opinion or a overreaction, it was never domestic abuse. But still you can hear about it in the news or tv shows, and it happens everywhere. The source which is partially alcohol can indicate that can be a bigger problem with poles because there are many drinkers in out nations.. at least while going with stereotypes.. further east and worse it gets..

Good advice from Justysia, and remember that in such families it usually gets worse.. especially if there's alcohol included.. sometimes it's better to admit mistake and try to come back to your family

Life / How to become a Part of Polish culture or environment? [10]

Well probably it'd best to meet some polish ppl, first on forum like FP and then go with them to a pub, or people from work... I don't think it's such an easy task to just befriend random people going alone to pubs and talking to random lads but maybe it's just me beeing introvertive ;). You can try to offer language exchange on a site like mylanguageexchange.com or other panpal sites like that to people from Klodzko.. and then try to meet them in rl.. good luck

Language / English slang but potential Polish slang too! [5]

yep?

You probably mean "jeb" word that comes from "jebać" ( there was one thread about "jebać" already" ;) ) it can mean smth like "damn" generally some negative or positive amazament.. it can also be an onomatopeic "boom" or actually any other sound that reflects two objects colliding..

Food / Menu suggestions for a Polish/Scottish night. [89]

I know it's a christmas eve dish but maybe you should try Barszcz z Uszkami? Chleb ze smalcem is a nice addition if you have a lot of drinking planned - people won't get pissed that quickly while eating some good old chleb ze smalcem ;) of course with beer..

Life / Confirmation / Bierzmowanie - tradition in Poland [9]

I wouldn't go as far as to say that no-one

Kinda late answer but anyways, I wasn't referring to "no-one", I think about it more like - even if somebody is fe 25 so he is not a kid, if he was indoctrinated into one religion values we can't say he has got a spiritual understanding, you need to have a far deeper understanding about all religions and ethics. But that only happens in societies that are on the fringe. I agree with the children aspect - it's everywhere like that, you've got a "young protestant" or a "little catholic" even before they can actually understand what it means to be one. On the other hand in some societies it might be very hard to explain to a kid why he ain't attending with ALL the other kids to f.e. catholic religion lessons, or ceremonies - he might get isolated by other kids because he is different.

Food / Menu suggestions for a Polish/Scottish night. [89]

Well... (golabki bigos, and any other kind of kapusta dish) cabbage and stomach don't get along, so it might be tricky - too much at a party.. especially if you add some % to it. I don't want to sound like a boor but really, a group farting ain't the best thing to happen at a party.

It would be nice if by editing you could just append more text to your previous post, without the possibility to change it completely.

Law / Linux, Unix, and Open Source in Poland [119]

Yeah that's why I said twice..

what was incorrect about my statement?

I don't care how much knowledge you have in that subject. Besides what you just said is irrelevant to the little chit chat we just had. What dragging law and finance has in common with the topic? The thing is, that editing your post and playing dumb later is just faulplay. It's not about linux anymore, just courtesy and the lack of it.

Sorry PolskaDoll, we kind of got carried away.. I've wasted my time answering somebody who was just teasing me. You can delete all of my posts on this page..

Law / Linux, Unix, and Open Source in Poland [119]

Ok I think I might know where's the problem, you changed your post!!! :D
It was:
Incorrect. Smth smth many distributions such as OpenSuse, Fedora, Ubuntu, Gentoo, etc. uses the Linux Kernel to function. On top of the actual distribution.

You said INCORRECT to that quotation of my post!
You are messing with my brain:/
I hope it was not your intention, to forget what you typed there before :)

John: There is one apple.

Jane: Incorrect.

John: So there are many apples?

Jane: No.

John: Aha! Got you! If you said incorrect to one apple, then there are probably many apples? Or no apples? In the same time you state incorrect that there is one apples and that there ain't many apples... so you are contradicting yourself...

Jane: No!

<John stabs himself with a keyboard>

you speak cplusplusish and I'm speaking csharpish.. we need a parser and a translator..

Sweet mother of god.. Ok, here it goes, as for a first grader.
I said: There is one kernel.
You said: Incorrect, there are many distributions using linux kernel (one kernel).
I said: You are contradicting yourself saying "INCORRECT, THERE IS ONE LINUX KERNEL."
You said: Where am I contradicting bla bla"
I said: Not "kernels" but one kernel.

By saying incorrect to my first sentance you therefore through it stated that there are many kernels ( not actually stated mkey?). That's why I said what I said.

Sorry but if that's not clear enough then, well let's forget about it, sorry if you feel insulted by the "You are contradicting yourself" part. I'm too tired to drag this any longer. :)

there's only one windows,

Hey Elssha it wasn't a part of any argument, common, it was just a comment on ukpolska
comment on Ela's comment ;D
"ukpolska: Here you go again getting wound up over a computer program"
you guys are just making a downward spiral from what was probably a slight irony by ukpolska at the beginning ;) so I don't see the point in adding this "windows is" statement there..

Later you quoted my matlab for linux.. in a way as I was stating against Linux.. I said it because ukpolska said there's not many scientific apps for linux, so I actually mentioned this great piece of code, well known around the world in favour of linux.

Actually, according to my friend (gamer + programmer by profession, with siblings working in MS and HP), the only reason MS is still afloat (for the most part) is that the graphics libraries used by most high-end comp games aren't available on linux and because on a whole Apple sux for serious games. If all three sys had the same games MS would have nothing to offer.

Yeah, I mostly think in the same way, that good graphic libraries or an updated directx library for linux would probably attract lots of people. But I still think there very good apps for Windows available.

Linux doesn't open any file automatically. (...)

Of course Linux is a really safe system, it has it's pros, but still it has it's flaws. People tend to think that Windows is full of bugs (which after 3 sp's isn't that much of a problem now) and Linux is a stronghold, which actually isn't true. That's why I brought that example - that there are situations and security aspects in which Windows will prevail ;) and Linux won't.

not "kernels", one Linux kernel, ONE LINUX KERNEL, one linux kernel to find them and in the darkness bind them, in the land of Torvalds where open source apps lie..

what was incorrect about my statement?

You are saying, Linux/Unix and Open Source represents "one computer program"?

Well..to be more precise there's only one linux kernel; )

Again, GIMP is easy to use as well.

Yeah, tell that to all these people who wasted time on it. Its gui ain't really straightforward at all. Not everyone have enough time to plough through all the controls placed - sometimes - in really unapropriate places. It's not taken from thin air, I actually heard that from a lot of people. I actually like GIMP and use it as an enhanced paint.. for game textures and such, you can create bump-maps with it and tiled textures pretty easily.. I can see its cons and pros. It's not the best choice for people with bad time management ;)

It depends really, I remember that there are types of packet flood attacks that can end as a DoS that only Linux is prone to - because Windows doesn't answer to them ( some types of packets ) and on Linux you need to know how to configure your firewall which ain't easy for a beginner. Besides, it's pretty easy to find lots of articles on the internet that will tell you that linux is less secure then windows - and we can probably spend hour talking about how much MS spent on those ;) I think it's fifty fifty, truth is always somewhere in between. More users, more software - a bigger possibilty to find a bug or a software incompatibility.

About the installation, sorry if I was wrong, when I was using Linux it was always cli installation.. ;)

Microsoft releases free beta versions for a reason too, I'm talking about real testing by professionals. Using apropriate tools they can find bugs that would go unnoticed by your average user.

The thing is that open source projects don't have the same amount of money - and it will always be a problem and compromising certain aspects. Of course there are big projects with big budgets, but I don't think that they are "that open".

And open source.. there's a lot of open source for windows too, there's bloodshed gcc, you don't have to buy Visual Studio to create good applications for Windows pc or mobile. Lots and lots of free libraries... Don't make Windows sounds like Symbian.

Linux would be probably much more popular if it supported more games that it actually supports. Its only youth "attractor" right now is the 'haxy' envelope - you wanna be a hacker use linux.. luckily most of them gets discouraged by the installation process.

try and find some usage of Linux in scientific research

There's matlab for Linux ; )

time saving

Well.. I wouldn't be so sure about this one, most of open source software is created by home programmers - do-it-yourself people. They don't have a gui specialist - their application can be free but really hard to approach, so it's not so time effiecent.. there's a smaller amount of testers so there's a bigger chance to encounter a bug. It also might be hard to find a real gem in all the rubbish that fills sourceforge and other open source portals..

Love / Breaking Up Is Hard To Do, Especially In Another Language! [46]

Hey, Cardno85, she will understand Asik's translation, and feelings and thought that you put into your text will be there I assure you. There are just some minor mistakes from time to time, and bits of text that don't sound naturally. Go for it.

As for your relationship - it happens, sometimes people are not adult enough to form a long lasting one. You shouldn't feel guilty, it happens all around the world. Sometimes some people have to go through lots of different relationships to finally understand what they are longing for, what they are expecting from their partners. Each relationship is a valuable lesson that enriches you..

I'm happy for your good health girls ;)

I'm a girl, my friend (the one who helped me get it working at first,

That's the problem with Linux, it's hard to approach, you can spend hours on installing it, if you don't have another pc plugged into internet, it can be really hard to go through the installation process. You just dunno why smth is not working until you skim through boards and forums just to discover that you have to edit some txt file in a random location on your hdd.. The only thing I like about linux is the way its firewall works, possibility to edit redirection of every kind packet that comes to your pc (probably that's why various versions of linux with cli are beeing installed in routers). If you have a lot of pc having a router-server pc with linux on board can be a nice idea, but you need to have some knowledge first..

As for GIMP, it has a pretty steep learning curve, I really like it, and I'm using it on my WinXP, but most friends I talked to about it were fed up with how it works and how it is hard to do anything. Besides for professional use Photoshop or Corel can't be replaced. The same with other freeware apps like Blender, it's ok for a beginner and probably it opens possibilities in front of kids and student who can't afford Autodesk apps, but still big companies will use 3dmax or Maya.. and again it's difficult to use. Software developer companies pump a lot of money into user interface, introduction and help desk for their software. It's a different thing about open source...

I'm happy nobody is attacking MS and Windows yet, you're just focusing on linux, that's good, the worst breed of linux fans is the kind that goes into "windows is crap" ;)

One of my friends is a real believer, in every possible discussion he always adds some weird linux phrases like "linux is like sex it's best when it's free", always quarrels about why linux is better then windows, always carries an auto-bootable distr cd, and jokes about blue screen of death a lot.. that's the type of a linux user I don't like : o

meh, not for everyone ^_^

Yeah, I dunno why, but most of linux users I've seen are fat guys wearing old black sweaters or old penguin t-shirts, no fashion sense at all, jabbering about how can they use vii to code, and that every Microsoft app has a counterpart for linux.. I refuse to join that world ;)

Love / Breaking Up Is Hard To Do, Especially In Another Language! [46]

Hi Asik, I dunno what is your problem, it's actually you who were chasing after me, you commented on two of my posts, so I'm commenting on yours. I was going to translate the whole thing, but your translation just popped out so I felt like sharing some knowledge, besides most of your post is alright. I'm not cruising after you, stop flattering yourself :) And I really do want to hear where I make my "big" mistakes because this way I can probably learn something. Sorry, I didn't mean to hurt you by pointing out those mistakes / improper word constructions - I think people who learn Polish can actually benefit by seeing two versions, or for example yours and my proper one. Take care...

Asik you shouldn't change the meaning.. should be:
Po prostu nie sądzę że to potoczy się dobrze, szef kuchni

a pozostaly jedynie miejsca pracy w czesci lokalu dla klientow i wymagaja bieglej znajomosci jezyka angielskiego.

Jest mi ciezko porozumiec sie z Toba i stalo sie to meczace w zwiazku.

Ciężko jest mi się porozumieć a porozumienie uważam za podstawę związku.

Naprawde mam watpliwosci, ze to dopracujemy. Wiem, ze wiazesz z tym wielkie nadzieje ale ja przeciez widze,ze to nie pracuje.

Watpie by tutaj udalo nam sie to dopracowac, wiem ze wiazalas z tym spore nadzieje, ale ja po prostu nie widze zeby to moglo zadzialac.

I can see myself resenting the fact that you don't want me going out to the pub or having time alone with myself and you don't want to be stranded here with no-one...or worse, stuck in job with someone who has just broke up with you having to see them every day and worse, living in the same house.

Widze siebie majacego pretensje o to ze nie chcesz zebym wychodzil do pubu lub spedzal czas samotnie. Nie chcialabys utknac tutaj samotnie, lub gorzej, utknac w pracy z kims z kim sie dopiero co rozstalas, i widywaniem go kazdego dnia, w najgorszym przypadku, mieszkaniem z ta osoba w jednym domu.

it's far from "small error"
