Of Greek and Latin

It’s really funny that technician comes from a Greek root, common in Latin but partially lost 1, which is to intertwine; while engineer comes from Latin, being the same thing in itself as generate, genius and, finally, to beget.
As a Romanian speaker, I never imagined that a roof tile, that is, ţiglă, actually means to weave a cover, as in toga as well… but the use of it, I mean, as skill, just how old is the word, from the neolithic?

As I’m not a begetter, the total number of problems arising in the process of creation surpasses the total number of successful build steps, such as for X = failure, Y = retries, Z = successes, we have Z = X^Y, where Z ∈ R_ . Of course this is a joke.

I’ve been busy for the past months, and been wanting to post here, with this backlog:
-finish teh graduation project;
-antennae theory;
-finish the Principles of Biology from Kansas State U;
-finish an islamic religious course;
-take an university admission test?

Processed jobs:
-various design retries in Eagle;
-various random libraries for Eagle, which I’ll shall publish at a certain point, here;
-shit less my pants in public, such as for dancing;
-learn some antenna theory;
-learn some programming;
-fail miserably at personal finances;
-piloted a drone.


  • ^1 i.e. tejero in Spanish, a surname by the dozen, lost in the history of offices, that is, oficio, officium, to hold responsibility for a job.
    which can actually mean to both make roof tiles and to knit
