    Beware the Germans


    Okay I think this is funny. Doesn't fit into the other sections because it's not actually a request for help, just a screen shot of my Task Manager.

    So one of the several pieces of software that I use on my Windows machine to create music is MAGIX Music Maker, and I believe they're based in Berlin. I didn't notice until recently that it was running a service in the background. But not just any ordinary service! I mean, can it have a longer name? It must mean serious business.

    I love some of these German words. Perfect for spelling bees. (I have German lineage, so... )

    German is so much easier. We use one word where you need a half a dozen words. Like:

    Lochkartenleseeinheitsabdeckungsschraube == screw for the cover of a punch card reader

    And that is nothing. Try Finnish.

    Well, as long as I don't see something that says "ATM PIN sniffer redirection daemon" I'm happy.

    AAAh! German word formation- Like Lego for human speech!

    While the German language has always been particularly willing to borrow from other languages to build its vocabulary, one of its glories is its ability to create new words by combining elements from within its own repertoire
