Hardware, Embedded Systems Two weeks ago, my grandmother passed away - the last grandparent I had left. As those of you with experience in dealing with deceased family members know, the funeral is only the start; the next part is taking care of the deceased's affairs, which includes going through all their belongings to determine what to do with them. I took care of my grandmother's extensive book collection, and while doing so, I hit something that fascinated me to no end: a six-volume Christian Encyclopaedia from 1956. In it, I found something I just had to share with OSNews.

As an English speaker, I can get the gist of nearly any European language as I read it (even Greek and Russian, albeit slowly because I have to read different alphabets). I wouldn't be able to construct anything remotely intelligible in any language other than English (or Japanese, but my fluency in that is irrelevant to this), but I can usually, at least, make sense of my Swedish and Dutch friends' statuses on Facebook.
