There are now 2 Places, where i want use my Pyra anymore:
on this weekend, whe want to went to our Caravan in Wangenbourg (Vosgeses), take our things, make Clean, and then it gets sell to a French Neightboor on this Camping Ground, i played a lot Pandora on this Caravan, i even screw its botton of to fix a shoulderbutton ^^,
But in the End, whe only sleep about 4 Times a Yeahr in this Caravan, so its much cheaper to take a bed in the auberge on the Village, i have mey property ^^

The other place is my Motor Scooter, a Yamaha Teo 125 from the Year 2000, as i sell this to poland...

But like i said, i hope that whe buy a Unimog 1300l Ex German Army, whit this cool MG Stand on the Roof, where you have something like a big round roof trapdoor ^^
(There want be a Lafette for a MG Anymore, as its demilitarised, but its still cool), ^^

FWIW, in English the word 'anymore' tends to be closely associated with statements in the negative, so your phrasing caused me a bit of dissonance when I read it. I think the word you want is 'still' or 'these days' or something like that.

Assuming your "want" in the third para is a misspelled "won't" that's a negative statement, so the usage of 'anymore' (technically two words, 'any more', but as a German that's the least mistake I could allow you) is perfectly permissible.

And for others less up to speed with firearms, the MG is a machine gun, specifically the MG-42, an old German gun, and a Lafette is it's stand.

Ok I try to make it better next time ..

Our caravan is now on property of its new owner, and whe put our whole things out this weekend,
Where quite a lot things, mugs, trink glasses, pottery (??) pans, knives forks spoons, pillows, but it’s fits in my car in the end

So next year whe will have the night in the Hotel..

As whe are in Germany, this Machine Gun Shooting Stand on the Unimog is now only a big sun roof opening




Send from something, i guess ^^

150 pages proofread today. I would've liked to have done more but pgdp.net limits you to a maximum of 150 pages per day.

@Djoga'Ro Could you elaborate? I found out it is a movie/series. It got a high ranking.
Was the central idea crap? Was the plot crap? Were the actors crap? Was it all crap? Why did you see it in the first place?
The trailer already gives away the twist: She is the bad one. But can you already tell it is bad, and not just slow starting?

@FBnil Didn't see the trailer. Only watched it, for it has high ratings on imdb. To me it's just the opposite of convinving - something with suspend of disbelieve I think it's called in English. Those two androids land on that planet, make base, grow 6 babies - starting a human population there is there main objective. The first is lost, when it - seemingly - walks into a big hole in the ground distracted by a stick doll. Next, one gets sick and the androids merely recogniye that. Next, there only two kids left. Then one of those gets sick and the androids merely recogniye the fact. They do nothing about the sick children. Whooot? Maybe they've got no medicine, but the could at least keeps them in bed, maintain a fever, and keep them hydrated.
The small ship, they came in, fell into a hole in the ground, just after the androids got themselves and part of the cargo out, but for eleven years they didn't retrieve the rest.?
Mother got nosebleed at one point, said it's an overload. Do the have a pressure relief valve connected to the nose? Do "emotions" cause them high blood pressure?
At one point, they sit the kids down and talk about religion, and tell them they mustn't be religious, but rather as a dogma than rationalizing, that there's no good reason to assume a god to be there. Then father sees catches one of them praying and comments with "Better don't let mother notice."
Then for no apparent reason, mother becomes a fanatic and kills father.
That's just in the first half episode, and it nearly kept me constantly in a state of WTF.

Fanatical gave me three free e-books today, including Beginning C++ Game Programming, Second Edition, by Packt. Before you get excited, there are a few problems with this book...

First, it recommends SFML. I searched for SFML on these forums to remind myself what it even is, and the last post about it was actually by me two years ago, praising some other dude who was using it. Noone's mentioned yet if SFML will be made Pyra compatible.

Second, it recommends Visual Studio. At this point I would burn it, but it's an e-book. None of them will burn. It's like we're living in the exact opposite of Fahrenheit 451.

How do you get free books from Fanatical? I like free books.

Nvm, I found it, it's near the bottom of this page: https://www.fanatical.com/en/ebooks . I'm not sure what the "International Day of the Programmer" is, though. They keep making new holidays. If this continues then every day will be a holiday. But if that means that I get 3 free ebooks every day then that's pretty good.

Guess who's been editing their website that they don't know what to do with.

Stuff used

GNU nano to edit the file, Lynx web browser to view it, tmux so I can display both applications in the same terminal window at the same time, and finally SDF-EU for hosting the site and providing the tools.

Why a newline after every sentence?
That seems a bit weird to me.
My father also writes like this.
He puts a newline after every sentence.
If you're using CSS and are afraid of lines getting too width, then you can restrict width using CSS which will also help keeping lines that are really long short so that even the very long lines can be read well despite the fact that they will not get a newline from you to break them up if you only break up lines at the end of a sentence.
Putting a newline after every sentence outside of a poem is just weird.
Also you should use ED, it's the standard editor.
Or are you too good for the standard editor?
Mr. fancy-pants nano.
