  1. Mind me for my curiosity and lack of knowledge, but what is exactly a suntherian?
  2. They indeed look more programming-targeted than just solvable trough math. I suppose that one could just determine how to solve it without actually putting it down to code...
  3. I do have an interest for math outside the boundary if career/study, and I've given given a look to the project some time ago. Still feels like homework to me though, so I'd rather read from the pile of books I still have to wade trough
  4. As I've given it a try I can tell you it aims to make you feel in a comfortable, figurative "bubble". I take it's an introduction, and can be useful to see how things work. Regulars probably know as of why it was defined famous
  5. Bienvenue a ce site~
  6. PHP poses limits if the system is not fully owned (e.g. it's not a VPS/VDS), else changing php.ini and the webserver's config should allow to raise the limit. PHP can also make use of non-local storage such as a remote FTP to store data, and could provide a link to the file. Can't think right away of a system that wouldn't need a bit of maintenance to place uploaded files in an organized manner.
  7. I had developed a wolf trough a good number of books, but ended up switching to this to better match my likings and for the fluff
  8. Aside the compulsory recorder thingy at school, I've taken piano lessons for a good number of years. Hadn't really the chance to keep doing it, given I had to move around the country on a regular basis after high school, and uhm, pianos aren't quite portable.
  9. I've recently been playing ESO as I have some free time after having dropped another game, although I play from the PC. I'd be interested in some more experienced player or more in general someone else to play with rather than going with a random team every time.
  10. One's knowledge of a language is expected to be this relevant, as it would be in everyday's things; same goes for the mean of communication most used and exercitated, text vs spoken form. I know it's not easy for non-natives to have chances to practice in listening and especially in speaking, while the written media is easier to achieve proficiency in due the higher amounts of opportunities to put it to test, although lookups in a dictionary or for translations may still be needed every now and then. Hence why in my question I hoped to get answers from people who have more than one language as their native, or that started learning a second language early in their lives. I also agree that by having already the mind set to use and recognize one language gives better results rather than switching for a specific task, although I'm unsure whether the former explanation is sufficient to explain this. It could be possible - gotta look that up - that a language learned at a later point "works" differently in the brain, and it's easier to use that pathway once it has been warmed up, so to say. Thanks for the contribution and for stimulating my curiosity!
  11. Gene therapy is already something that exists (although not yet at viable prices) and that alters a targeted kind of cells e.g. to repair a given function with a working copy of the genetic material that express it, so I don't feel it's justified to say that only the next generation will be able to see it. It's also expected that surgery, being "easier", is also the method that happens first. Whether it's easier to add things on a living, "running" system or starting from scratch with an embryo is debatable and mostly depends on the particular case taken into consideration. There's also still a lot that isn't known about the mechanics of the embryo that would be needed in order to make a proper, stable and vital result in all the cases, and this kind of approach opens the debate of whether it's ethical or not to do so without consent. An already developed person would make things easier at least from the legal standpoint. As of the comparison with drugs and akin, I feel that the level of acceptance required is for a behavior to be acceptable is not to disrupt one's life. Gender reassignment is way too close to any kind of alteration towards furry for that kind of reasoning to make me feel good. There's also the (hopeful) hypothesis that this, as opposite to nowadays' drug use, a transformation by either surgical or genetic means hasn't a biological side effect or risk, which is instead currently present at any kind of usage with certain substances. The perception of this and the social backlash that could come from said transformation has to be taken into account, though, and does count as something that can disrupt one's life. In the end a change in the way the average person perceives this would be needed as much as knowledge on the "how to".
  12. While I cannot really share experiences I think that this may be due to the difference between altering just a detail of the body, or a minor part that doesn't have a function as complex as legs do. I mean that it's not just an extended bit, but probably it's expected to maintain a balance on them, to flex it in a particular way, to grip and handle objects that is not just swishing or wagging. The added complexity probably requires a different kind of concentration and the desire to experience them in particular. Edit because derp, forgot to put a piece in: Tails can be complex too, but probably their user focuses on them more and has very clear how they're expected to work, possibly imagining them and playing with the idea since a considerable amount of time, while the same can't be said in most of the cases about additional limbs.
  13. Weasel myself, although I do have a certain affinity to similar animals, such as ermines, of which I might mix up elements of, and foxes. The avatar as well as my usual way to present myself as furry is of a mienshao. Ultimately, I feel that shape, species, etc matters only to a point, and isn't sufficient to define it as a character.
  14. Nowadays pretty much anything gets sexualized, let alone something that fits tightly and highlights a point that's usually considered sensitive and related. With this idea to reason on you'd probably end up not taking/wearing it. However I feel that if you were to pick up something that doesn't shout for attention, all you need to do is to act normally and not be concerned about it. I think that concern over one's appearance and others' thinking will probably call attention to that and make it read in the wrong key.
  15. This is a question open to all those who know more than a language and had experiences either speaking or listening. I am curious at whether there's a bias over which is more effective. I sort of expect the most listened to/spoken to be probably preferred, or the one learned earlier, still there could be someone who had two (or more) languages to grow with. Bonus points on considerations over what makes a language convey images. It's something that we learn at an early stage and we give for granted most of the life, but most often (the exception being onomatopeic words) there's not really a bond between significant and significance. What makes images pop up in the head listening to certain words, or makes certain thoughts run? Philology can tell about the origins and derivations of a word, and that answers partly to what a word is, but there are certain sounds that inherently make the listeners feel in a certain way, or is it wholly a societal construction? Music, to a point, manages to convey feelings and pictures, both from the composer and to the executor...
