Just how are those curtains going to deal with a blizzard, a hurricane, a tornado, or any other strong weather event?
Evolution has already pruned world populations of those who cannot resist measles. Those of us who survived are of the somewhat-measles-resistant variety. When measles was first introduced to populations in the Americas and isolated Pacific islands, populations that had never been exposed to measles, it killed many of the infected.
Original post is sexist. The comments that follow seem to be predominantly sexist, with lashings of racism. Way to cover yourself in ignominy, Slashdot.
I tried out the Analyzer program, and discovered that it only seemed to look for *English* words. Simple, easy-to-remember phrases in Tongan or French were rated as extremely strong (taking centuries to break).
Today, with the help of many volunteers who work on books and software, DP completed its 10,000th title.
Distributed Proofreaders, a wholly volunteer organization, was established for the purpose of producing quality transcriptions of machine-readable texts from public domain sources. Once a unique title has been completed the result is made freely available in widely used text and graphic formats via the Internet. The complete library of "DP texts" accessible from file servers throughout the world under the governance of Project Gutenberg, the founding ancestor of online archives.
True to its international nature, Distributed Proofreaders, while respecting U.S. copyright laws, does not limit itself to preserving solely English language content. Nearly 15% of completed titles, to date, represent over 20 languages beyond English. A look to DPs 10,000th title set reveals the diversity of world cultural content in the public domain. Among this commemorative collection are a French translation of Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice; the chronicle of Portuguese explorer Serpa Pinto's African expeditions; a pair of illustrated children stories from Germany; the first part of 'Species Plantarum', a 17th century Latin botanical reference work and a translation of a 17th century Guatemalan Maya manuscript.
The fifteen titles released today are not a cheer towards the past accomplishments of Distributed Proofreaders, nor are they pat on the back for deeds fulfilled on this day. What these titles so clearly represent, of their own merits, is the future and what awaits within the world's public domain yet to be rescued from obscurity and re-presented to an audience hungry to rediscover the cultural treasures of previous ages."
