Post by: jancumps on August 04, 2013, 01:11:27 pm
While browsing through my Elektuur / Elektor collection I found thisreview of the Altium NanoBoard 3000.

It's kind of cool.

It's in some strange language with missing letters.

Its Dutch but the reason for posting a blurred text is unclear to me. But then again in Belgium the signs on the subway system show where the train is coming from, not where it is going to...

(That's because we know where we're going to ourselves)
 
I don't have copyright over the material. That's why I'm reluctant to post the whole article.

Yeah I was sort of joking about the missing text, but also the fact that the majority of us don't speak Dutch and there was no translation or synopsis.

I will go out on a limb and assume we all understand English to some degree otherwise we wouldn't be here reading this but probably also wouldn't be watching Dave's videos, though I do on occasion watch those Russian chip-dip videos.

No problem with Dutch, but I do not speak it, but can understand it a lot. Then again I do have Dutch in laws. Elektor though are very touchy about putting copies of the articles online. They want you to buy them from them.

I've noticed when I listen to MJLorton's videos I notice many words with a "oo" sound like "Good" have a Dutch sound to them.
Is that indicative of someone who may also speak Dutch or Afrikaans or just is that just how South African English sounds?

Can be regional, can be a native speaker or can just be the speaker. You get all sorts of accents here, about the only language not common here is Russian and other Slavic languages, though there are a lot who because of past circumstances either speak or understand them.

Well, let them be touchy and ignore them.
We can read a review in an Aussie mag instead.
