Fight FUD?

Paul Venezia wrote an article in English, which got translated *very badly* to this article in Dutch.

It is quite obvious "wrong", though the English article still makes sense - from the author point of view - but the Dutch article misses every single point entirely.

This sucks badly. Don't know what to do about it.


Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    Do you know any Perl programmers or translators? Ask them to comment on the article.

    If you know that the translation is bad, perhaps suggest improvements (or point out the flaws) where necessary to the author (so that he's aware of what's wrong) and to the computerworld.nl site. Just a thought.

    LOL, I think it is actually an improvement over the original article, if the google translation of the dutch to english

    The absurdity of the article is exaggerated

[Discipulus]: i invented also 'gired'
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, then that is a problem. I wanted to find total seconds of my entire .mp3 collection to do some math on it to see how many days of continuous music i have.
[LanX]: darn. .. I wanted to see Marine and Melonchon go to next round, just for fun xD
[Discipulus]: LA use Perl: traversing a dir tree is simple; foreach file mp3 $sec+= use Mp3::Info
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, I was able to get the sum of the seconds on the command line using awk. Then I ran the result through a perl script and got the result. It came bach with 4 days, 9 hours, 56 minutes, 43 seconds.
[Lady_Aleena]: s/bach/back/;
[Discipulus]: gired anyway is the intermediate state between hired and fired (and vice versa;)
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipuluis, I don't know if I want to fight with File::Find. File::Find and I are not friends.
[Discipulus]: 4 day Bach is too muche even for me
[Discipulus]: LA you know who is paco?
