    We all do. Does anyone know for sure that he's simply moved on, and is actually OK in real life?

    And now Aurifex is missing too. Now, it's only been something like a week and a half, which, although it's unusually long for his habit, is not yet alarming. Perhaps he's on holiday or so.

    This sort of thing should be discouraged.

    What? Going on holiday? Or doing so without letting fellow forum members know about it so they don't wonder if you're alive or dead?

    Not posting. They can do it from the moon, if that's their choice, and they've got roaming enabled.

    Maybe they want to take a holiday from the Internet too. Like, perhaps the idea is for some time to stop doing everything that they usually do, to do other things. Or maybe they're far away in some jungle or desert where there's no connection.

    I joined this forum too recently to have much interaction with Imber Ranae. :(

    Now I feel guilty for being gone so much of late. :bawling:

    I hope Imber Ranae isn't in a desert; he'd wither up and die in no time.

    Thankfully even when you're not here I see you on Facebook so I know you're alive.

    That's true (and I see you there as well, which is nice.) :)

    Does using caps lock change the English translation of Latin words? I saw it in Google Translate.

    Never ever trust Google Translate when it comes to Latin. It's always wrong.
    Iohannes Aurum and Godmy like this.

    Merged threads.

    Google Translate ignores context completely and treats capitalized words and non-capitalized words differently, when they should be treated the same in most cases.

    Google Translate is much worse than someone failing freshman Latin.

    It is related to the changes in orthography in Imperial Rome after the Capus Lockus key was invented ;)
