Looking inside a vintage Soviet TTL logic integrated circuit http://www.righto.com/2020/03/looking-inside-vintage-soviet-ttl-logic.html
@robey emergency cute red panda pics:
ok so i'm finally watching "downfall", and when the kids sing a delightful song about being _unter den linden_, the subtitles said "under lime trees"
this made absolutely no sense to me, so i had to look it up. *apparently* linden trees are called "lime trees" in the UK even tho they don't produce limes
i think the translators just worked a bit too hard. everyone has heard of linden trees ffs, but nobody outside of the brexit zone is going to think of linden trees when you mention limes
today I discovered that because Microsoft thought the Zune “Z” device would become as iconic and obvious as Apple’s Apple, they left both their name *and the product name* off the Zune product line, so now there’s a small but consistent group of them listed on eBay as “Hello From Seattle” MP3 players
autocorrect turned this into "birth under punches" and i'm going to leave it because it made me laugh
