A Spanish Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la casa.'
'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lapiz.'

A student asked, "What gender is 'computer'?"

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether 'computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.

The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the feminine gender ('la computadora'), because:

1... No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;

3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and

4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.


The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine ('el computador'), because:

1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;

2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;

3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and

4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

The women won.

Me too Gil it would be a shame to lose it after how good it was in the past. Just where have all the other members disappeared too? Debra said she was going to keep posting again but has only psoted a few times I guess perhaps others are too busy. But at least WE'RE trying.
Maybe we should try sending p.m. to all the old members because I believe they will still be popping in now and then just to read the posts.
What do you think?
Emmy
Also perhaps we should try posting something'anything at all on the other indexes I'm forgetting others cant see what's on the VIP posts. ??

Gil, if someone of you can help me writing something to members, it would be really appreciated. I'm afraid to send emails with grammar mistakes... Anxious that's why I'm always hesitant about sending out emails.

OK Simy
You write down what you want to say and we'll help you I'm sure Gil will give suggestions too

Simy there is nothing wrong with your written English even English people make grammatical mistakes (me included! but I dont care so long as I get the message across.)

Good Idea Gil
Emmy

Thanks Emmy!

Need to think what to say.... Think lets see... d'oh! Think
OK! Done! Please, correct this, if needed:

"Come back on Amici or I'll kick your a*s up and down. Regards, Goganga"
Dancing

I'm joking! I'm going to think about some meaningful email later and then I'll post it. Now I'm a bit tired and I think I'm going to bed.

Thanks for your help and your ideas! friends

Even Americans make mistakes in their American English! The only thing that I could think of is we had members on here discussing their Italian heritage, Maria comes to mind first, and we miss hearing their stories and only hope that the reason(s) for not posting is that they we have offended them or if they are not healthy.

I don't know if someone got offended.
I only do know that I made some wrong choices in the past, listening to opinion of people, instead of thinking with my own brain, but how do they say? I was inexpert...
I also miss some of our users. Just take a look at the memberlist and see Marisa6, Tbech7430, Maria, Packwidget, Chela, Sassysonya, NickDiToro, Torile, Lori... you name it. They were the heart of Amici.

Do you think it could perhaps be they have joined other forums and forgotten about us here?
I did send a private email to Marisa a while ago (I'm friendly with Marisa's cousin)and up until now I have always had a reply from her but she hasnt answered the email I sent about Amici., and I KNOW FOR SURE I DIDNT SAY ANYTHING that could have OFFENDED her. Perhaps she had been on holiday when I sent it and like everything else perhaps she didnt notice it Sad I did notice she had replied to a post on Italian Genealogy a while back.
There's no use in sending private messages to them either because they wont get them if they dont log in.
Any other suggestions??? d'oh! d'oh! It used to be so busy every time you logged in there were lots of replies to posts and its not because of the variety of topics - there is something there for everyone.
Emmy

Emmy... I also emailed some of them last year. Only a couple of them replied my email and said they were busy with their jobs.
Honestly, after that, I gave up and did not email them again. Confused

I don't think they were offended.

If you send private messages, they should get a notification by email.

I wonder where Maria has been as she was also very active on Amici? She works about twenty minutes from where I live and lives about an hour away. Should I start stalking her???


Just kidding!
