  • The problem is that many journalists these days get paid by article length/word count, so they inflate the shit out of it and hope whoever is in charge of proofreading doesn't cut too much out. If you compare articles written in newspapers/websites where they still have a regular staff on payroll vs. those that have more "guest authors" than anything, you'll immediately see what I mean. It's a shame really.

  • so who else has decided to learn German due to the number of German language posts?
  • The internet helps with reading/writing mostly, and that comes with the benefit of looking things up when needed, which you really can't do in a normal conversation. But yeah it has most certainly improved. I think it's now also mandatory as a first foreign language, back when I started high school in 1994 we were still given the option to start with French or Latin instead (with English as a mandatory second language from grade 7 then).

    But don't quote me on that, I haven't had anything to do with the German school system after graduation, it's mostly hearsay.

  • English is on the curriculum of all schools as a mandatory subject, but learning it in school =/= speaking proficiency. That usually comes with a ton of practice, and not all that many of us are exposed to English on a daily basis, even less so in lower income strata.

  • Oh no, that was the best thing we had here :-/

    It certainly didn't get everything right, but was better than sifting through garbage articles... Any chance you could reconsider? If people don't like it, let them block it and done, why ruin it for everybody?

  • Broker-Diversifikation?
  • Ich denke da quasi genau wie du, hab bloß noch nie so große Volumen bewegt und wollte deswegen mal einen Reality-Check haben. Danke dafür :-)

    Weiteres Depot oder ein anderes Tagesgeld wollte ich nicht extra eröffnen, mir ging es nur wirklich darum, weniger als 100k im Tagesgeld zu haben, damit die Einlagensicherung das komplette Guthaben abdeckt, daher wollte ich es entsprechend in einem der beiden Depots in einer hinreichend sicheren Anlageform parken.

    Witzigerweise haben Deutsche Staatsanleihen mit Restlaufzeit von knapp einem Jahr aktuell Renditen um die 3.1-3.3%, Geldmarktfonds je nach Anbieter zwischen 2.72 und 3.51%, und das bei höherer Kursschwankung. Da ist eben die Endfälligkeit bei 100% bei Anleihen sexy, auch wenn ich die sonst eher langweilig finde.

    Hab jetzt mal bei Flatex eine Order über 65k platziert, dann ist noch ein bisschen was im Tagesgeld für ganz kurzfristigen Bedarf, und der Einlagenschutz greift, falls irgendwas passiert.

    Danke dir!

    Broker-Diversifikation?

    Hallo zusammen,

    Ich hab mein Depot bei FlatEx und bin damit an sich sehr zufrieden, aber jetzt stelle ich mir die Frage, ob sich dahingehend eine Diversifikation anbietet?

    Bei der DKB als Hausbank hab ich ebenfalls ein Depot, aber da sind nur noch Karteileichen von vor 15 Jahren drin; irgendwelche endfälligen Zertifikate bis 203x, bei denen die Verkaufsspesen höher wären als jegliche Rendite.

    Jetzt möchte ich gerne meine Anlagestrategie ein bisschen diversifizieren und zu dem ETF-Portfolio gerne kurzläufige Staatsanleihen kaufen. DACH mit kleiner Rendite, max 1 Jahr ab Kaufdatum, nix wildes.

    Hintergrund ist, dass ich ggfs. in den nächsten 6-24 Monaten Geld brauche um ein Haus anzuzahlen; gleichzeitig aber das Volumen die Einlagensicherung übersteigt, sonst hätte ich es einfach auf's Tagesgeld gepackt oder Festgelder regelmäßig verlängert, das geht nun leider nicht.

    Jetzt die eigenltiche Frage: Bei Flatex würde ich für diese Order knapp 4 Euro zahlen, bei der DKB 32,50 Euro. Sollte ich früher verfügen müssen und entsprechend nochmal verkaufen, ergo das doppelte (Endfälligkeit ist kostenlos).

    Eigentlich ja ein no-brainer, 28,50/57 Euro zu sparen; aber bietet es sich eurer Meinung nach an, hier denoch das Ausfallrisiko auch über 2 Broker zu verteilen?

    Danke im Voraus!

    Windows 10 shows Linkedin Learning Ads on Login Screen

    Hi all,

    First off: Can't switch to Linux, Windows is a work requirement. Please spare me.

    With that out of the way, here's my problem:

    Since 2-3 days I've been seeing ads disguised as a minimized video player popup on my Windows 10 Login Screen !image.

    Initially I thought I might have been watching something on youtube and forgot to close the tab and it autoplayed in the background until reaching this stuff by chance; but that turned out not to be the case (I'm also using Firefox exclusively, which I thought wouldn't integrate with Windows, but I wasn't 100% sure on that end).

    I tried to research this a bit, but the only similar case I found was in an old reddit thread saying that some Windows update installed the LinkedIn App for them, which is not the case here.

    Antivirus (Bit Defender) and Malwarebytes both give me a clean report.

    So I did some more digging and right click that thing with my firewall set to deny all to figure out where this is taking me, and surprise...

    !Image

    There's a total of 100 connection attempts from Windows Search to around 10 different IP addresses, all of which belong to Microsoft.

    I have not installed any updates in the last 14 days, no new software, and have not changed any system settings.

    What did change is that I am currently not in China, where I normally live, but am on a business trip to Malaysia, where a bunch of services that are blocked in China might be accessible, and are now splicing in those (somewhat disguised) ads.

    Does this happen to anyone else, and if so, do you have an idea how to get rid of it?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Whatsapp web broken after 124.0.1 update?

    Hi all,

    Just updated FF to 124.0.1 and now the whatsapp web view is broken. The text input field is somewhere in the upper third of the screen and in the background, overlayed by text boxes so that I can't actually select it. It's automatically selected when switching from one chat to another so I can type there, but only blind in most cases since any comment boxes overlap it.

    Tried restarting, clearing cookies, re-authenticating, disabling all plugins, nothing worked.

    Does anyone experience something similar and/or know a workaround?

    Thanks!

    Edit: Fixed by logging out of whatsapp web, clearing cookies, restarting the browser, and then logging back in. Neither of the steps had worked on its own previously, but the combination did the trick.

    Childfree Chatter

    Hi all,

    As our community is still small and not overly active, I thought instead of trying to have a weekly or monthly chatter thread up as a sticky, we could try a perpetual one and see what happens.

    So anything you feel doesn't warrant a post of its own, just put it here.

    Cheers and take care!

    Current account recovery best practices?

    Hi all,

    Need to pick your brains for a bit regarding best practices for handling of account recovery issues while traveling.

    Premise would be that my phone gets lost or stolen, and I may not have easy access to my laptop either, and being in a foreign country I couldn't easily get a copy of the original SIM to restore via OTP.

    Consequently, I also don't really love the idea of using some password manager with a master password and no F2A.

    Under those circumstances, what would you consider the best way forward to ensure accessibility without crippling myself in the process?

    The only thing I can come up with is a random subdomain on one of my domains, with random username and random password, where I store an encrypted container containing txt-files. Maybe even further obscured with a random cypher (all numbers / letters shifted x positions to the right or something).

    But there's gotta be other use-cases out there, so I was wondering what you are using?

    Ideally something that doesn't involve another person.

    Thanks!

    Outlook filters for >x people in CC possible?

    Hi all,

    I've got a bit of a spam issue that isn't solved by either keyword or actual spam filter. The problem is that I'm in China and mass email marketing here is acceptable for some reason, so local spam filters don't catch the perps, and international ones are useless based on the language.

    And since I'm in a customer/supplier facing role, quite a few genuine mails use the same keywords as the spammers, so that doesn't work to fix my problem.

    However, the mails are usually sent to hundreds of people at once, all with their mail addresses in plain view in CC.

    So I'd just like to set up a filter to send mails with >100 recipients or something like that straight to trash, but can't seem to find it in the outlook rule settings.

    Does anyone know of a useful workaround?

    Thanks!

    Looks like Facebook is following youtube with anti-adblock measures.

    I don't really use facebook anymore so couldn't care less; but so happened to log in today to change my password and saw this on my front page.
