Nur eine kleine PR-Maßnahme, damit wir hier mal wieder verlinkt werden. ;)

Not going to let this thread die.

So to comply with the topic:

Ich bin bender (translates to "I'm dying" in Google (Mis)translate)

What's more funny is:

Ich bin Bender (note: capital 'b') translates properly as "I'm Bender"

Is the first one correct or is the translator trolling me?

It's trolling you. I can't think of any German word close to "bender" that would mean something like "dying". (Hm.. Or perhaps it's just the second half of "sterbender"?)

I had a rather funny experience recently with Bing translating from Russian to English:

Russian original (English translation) - Bing's version:

Чей это холодильник? (Whose fridge is this?) - Who is cooler?
Это холодильник сестры. (It's the sister's fridge.) - Is TV sister.
Он покупает не дорогое кольцо, а самое дорогое кольцо. (He buys not an expensive ring, but the most expensive ring.) - He buys expensive ring, but not the most expensive ring.
Правда стоит четыре копейки. (Pravda (Russian newspaper) costs four kopecks.) - The truth is worth four pennies.
Я говорил ему на русском. (I talked to him in Russian.) - I spoke to him in English.

Well, actually правда means truth in Russian, so it's not completely off, and also the price sounds reasonable...

Turning the name of the source language into "English" is something that GT really likes to do.

It also managed to confuse Estonia with Ireland a few times...

Perhaps we'll do if you ask nicely in German.

"Eine kleine Nachtmusik", by W.A. Mozart. German title, but its harmony is a Greek word (<ἁρμονία). :wink:
It really helps writting Assembly code. :)

I like your owl image. It's beautiful.

Thank you very much! That's the Glaux-OS logo.
Nothing special yet. Working still on it...

By the way, Athena's sacred animal is an owl, called glaux (γλαῦξ).
