I haven’t done it yet but yes that’s what I was intending. It sounds bizarre but I’ve read a lot of incidences of getting some disks to run for long enough to copy files off it before they die again. If you google “hard drive freezer” there’s a ton of results going “wow this worked!” and a ton going “never do this!” so.. I’ve been too nervous to actually attempt it yet. I definitely don’t have the funds to send it to a data recovery lab though eh..
I need to do that… one of my hard drives still has every file and is readable, but a lot of files are stuck there due to an input-output error.

I downloaded a Blu-Ray rip of Persepolis (Persepolis.2007.720p.BluRay.x264-ESiR) then loaded the Esperanto subtitles I had (persepolo-eo). I was ready to resync the subtitles, but I noticed that the video I downloaded had an extra intro, motivating me to rethink the whole synchronisation thing. After a bit of testing, I realised that the Esperanto subtitles I had downloaded were correct; they simply corresponded to a different video file! (The only adjustment I did was set the subtitles 0.5 seconds faster.)

The ‘live’ version of the evaluation was better… and quite fun! However, there may be a possibility of more extreme measures later, depending on the results and my diet…
I still feel extraordinarily loose…
I know that I have to dress nicely when I go to a clinic, plus I normally like dressing nicely, but…
I wish I can get away with wearing kilts here in Puerto Rico, at least!
I am in a cycle between drinking an electrolyte drink and going potty. I still have about one third of electrolyte drink remaining…
Want to attend college for free? It can happen if you learn German.
All German universities are now free to Americans and all other international students. The last German state to charge tuition at its universities struck down the fees this week.
Even before Germany abolished college tuition for all students, the price was a steal. Typically semester fees were around $630. What’s more, German students receive many perks including discounts for food, clothing and events, as well as inexpensive or even free transportation.
In explaining why Germany made this move, Dorothee Stapelfeldt, a Hamburg senator, called tuition fees “unjust” and added that “they discourage young people who do not have a traditional academic family background from taking up study. It is a core task of politics to ensure that young women and men can study with a high quality standard free of charge in Germany.”
Actually, German universities were free up until 2006 when they started charging tuition. That triggered such a crush of criticism that German states began phasing out this policy. Lower Saxony was the last holdout.
It’s too bad that politicians in the U.S. don’t feel that a college education is worth supporting appropriately. State aid to the nation’s public universities took a nosedive during the 2008 recession and education funding remains well below those levels. The average state is spending 23 percent less per student than before the recession, according to a report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
Actually, state support has been declining for public universities for a quarter of a century. Using an interactive tool from The Chronicle of Higher Education, you can see how state government subsidies have cratered at individual institutions.
With the average undergrad borrower now leaving school with more than $29,000 in debt, the free ride in Germany can look awfully tempting.
How to handle the language barrier
German is not an easy language to learn. Fortunately, however, there are international language programs in Germany, which have become very popular with international students before they tackle obtaining a degree in a different language.
What’s more, an increasing number of German universities are offering degrees in English. These are often called international studies programs or in some other way have the word international in their title.
This is actually making me cry…it’s one of those times when you realize that your own government just truly, honestly, does not give a [cuss] about your wellbeing in any way.
If Americans don’t reblog this, then y’all need help.
My brother is looking into this. So happy
Expect the US to experience a massive brain-drain as the student debt crisis continues to expand with no action from political leaders.
I have taken a Deutsche class and started to acclimate myself to the language until I decided to reassess my language-acclimating strategy through Esperanto. However, I have the tools to resume my Deutsche-acclimating quest…
There is nothing sweet or savory about the rotting carcass of a chicken twisted and crushed with cruelty. There is nothing delicious about bloodmouth carnist food. How does it feel knowing your stomach is a graveyard?
I’m sorry, but you just inadvertently wrote the most METAL description of eating a chicken sandwich in the history of mankind.
MY STOMACH IS A GRAVEYARD
NO LIVING BEING CAN QUENCH MY BLOODTHIRST
I SWALLOW MY ENEMIES WHOLE
ESPECIALLY IF THEY’RE KENTUCKY FRIED
That metal description actually made the chicken sandwich less appealing than what For Future Reference Only did! Metal Rock is already too intense against me; the metal description of eating a chicken sandwich does not make things any better! …bloodthirst? …Kentucky-fried enemies? You are so violent!
Also, I lived having a graveyard stomach. The results screwed up me, hence why I had to eat a 'Screw Down Diet' in the 1st place!
Now, if only these things stuck… I need to make a deliberate effort… I am managing so far…
