It's not like we haven't all been thinking that exact thing
Nice one! And nice to see the door again
omg....omfg... it's...a....door! omg!
You write "Scheiße" with a "ß" (sharp s), because "ei" is a diphthong. ;P
For anyone who wonders: It's german for "shit".
You can substitute 'ß' with 'ss'. So it is correct.
Thanks for the info, I thought it did not matter at all. (btw, on non-german keyboard you can usually still make a ß (alt+b on my Finnish and alt+s on my international keyboard )
Well, and if you have a explanation why we Dutch call it a 'ringel-s' (which must mean the same in German), I think I know everything about that letter ;-) (that's actually bugging me for years ) Edited 2008-04-15 00:49 UTC
Hmm, not in Switzerland:

Allow me to get off-topic.
I think I stand corrected and much better informed ;-).
Just a further question, what seems to be implied in what you have said is that Hochdeutsch/Standarddeutsch doesn't appear to have the integrating effect on the orthographical level that one might surmise (given as you say the differing length of vowel sounds in dialect-speech). Or has Standarddeutsch always been overplayed in this respect?
Non-native speakers of German just find it bewildering, and in my case I simply plough on as before...
Anyway, great response
I applaud your energy to discuss this interesting (allthough off topic) concern further. So I'd like to comment on your last statements.
that is what i have thought about him all along hehe
just to confess, i had to search the name to get the joke
Nice. And just so I'm not off-topic... ß is the same as ss
Robert is an oddity, to work full time and do what he does is incredible. Even tho I havent had time to test sky out as much as I would like, Its one of the few projects I follow year after year impressed of the pace that one man has pushed forward.
This is a fairly accurate comic, as the door has no knob. That's actually how we keep Robert on task.
One time though, he tried to code a knob. That got...awkward. Needless to say, the solution involved submitting around 1,000+ bugs to the bug tracker, which delayed him long enough for us to implement stronger security measures. Edited 2008-04-18 21:50 UTC
