Why Do Some Words Have Two Past Tense Forms (e.g. Dreamed Vs. Dreamt)?
Why do two forms exist? My theory is that there are three reasons:A similar thing is happening with past participles. People are using the past tense instead of past participles. I used to be shocked to hear professionals singers and celebrities say "I've never sang" instead of "I've never sung." And I'm the only person I know who uses "drunk" as a past participle instead of "drank."â¢ Related QuestionsWhy does P25 occasionally break through tone squelch on my analog HTs?It could be a bug in the repeater controller (it's perfectly possible to transmit digital data with a PL tone), but I'd suspect the Baofengs as your problem. They're not the best radios, and they're priced accordingly. Borrow a better HT (ideally Icom, Yaesu or Kenwood, but Alinco makes pretty good handhelds too although they're harder to find) and see if it does the same thing for you.------Is there a chance that bitcoin will be use as the Universal Currency around the Universe? closedWell there is no possibility for bitcoin to become the universal and will be only currency for the whole mankind, with current system like bitcoin have i think it looking attractive to think about but only in dreams because governments are more powerful and want to keep to control over their people so that i think it is not possible at this moment but nobody knows about future------Comparizon between text editors in Ubuntu: Vim vs. Emacs vs. Nano closedEmacs is pretty good. It has syntax highlighting and supports extensionsand is extensible through its embedded dialect of Lisp (elisp). It also has modes for many statistical programs, support for tex, a calendar, mail reading utilies, tetris and even a psychiatrist. Emacs (or Vim, but thats less good for stats) are worth learning as they are both cross platform and support almost every programming language in the world.------He is 80 years youngMy 74 year dad used to call himself as "74 years young". He was full of curiosity and energy at 74.So, it is okay to bend the rules of grammar and logic a bit, so long as the meaning comes through.On the other hand, I would hesitate to say he is 80 years young for a stranger, in case the stranger feels I am not acknowledging or respecting his seniority------My wrists hurt after playing bass for a long timeWhen you do something physical for an unusually long time, you will get tired and/or sore. Maybe consult a teacher to check you aren't making it worse with bad posture. Try to relax anything that CAN be relaxed while playing. Again a teacher can advise.But if you suddenly decide to run a marathon, you must expect blisters on your feet. You knew that really, didn't you?------Why is the hat called St. Lucia?I wanted to include the symbol of light overcoming darkness as the first hat that many people receive. I knew that Santa Lucia was officially celebrated on December 13, but I had to look it up. In my experience celebrations occur in the general timeframe of the solstice, so my note on the date was "close enough". See also: Why is there a Saint Lucia hat on Mi Yodeya?------Nginx / uWsgi / Django site can handle more traffic with rewrite URLHave you presented this to the dev mailing list? Very interesting for sure. Have you tried enabling full debugging; you might have had to enable it during compile. Once enabled do one request to the canonical and one to another. Perhaps the debug logs will shed some light. Have you tried removing the second server_name domain(somesite-live..)? Good luck, let us know if you figure it out!.------How can I decline or redirect a religiously-objectionable community-service project without alienating people?My suggestion would be to go to the first meeting, do whatever's asked of you that does not directly promote their religious objective, humbly apologize if someone asks you to do just that (while offering to do something else).Then, if you wish, just don't show up any more. Use what transpired at the first meeting as the excuse (such as giving out flyers for a free consultation).------Is that Luke's hand falling down at the end of The Empire Strikes Back?If his hand and light-saber both get cut, they would probably have ended up where he fell(before he got there). So when he falls he ends up with his hand and light-saber next to him. The chute then opens and all(him, his light-saber and hand) fall out, he then lands on an antenna and his hand/light-saber keep falling. This is my 2 cents regarding what happened------Change the color of the omitted newline char in fish shellNo, there is no way at present to change the color of that character. See the omitted_newline_char symbol in the src/screen.cpp source. It is currently hardcoded to what should be a light grey color visible on most terminals. You're welcome to open an enhancement request. Even better would be to submit a change for review that makes this configurable without breaking the current behavior------Skinny male getting belly fat, how to gain weight and mass from this conditionYour question is way too generic, the answer to your problem is in lifestyle advice, not really an exercise plan ... try doing two things to startStop eating and drinking rubbishDo some body weight exerciseStick with it for at least 2 month without cheating or slacking and come back to ask more specific questions if that did not help you lose some belly fat and build strength. Good luck.------Meaning of Luft der Hase?I've encountered this expression several times among young adults in the south-west of Germany. In my experience, it is simply meant as a slightly humorous, light-hearted greeting among friends, basically asking "Is everything well?", "Is life going according to your plans?".It might originally stem from other phrases as Hubert Schlnast and IQV suspect, but I don't think the speakers I've met consciously intended to reference those.------The butterfly effect in Judaism closedThere are midrashim (I learned this through a series by Rabbi David Fohrman) which suggest that Sarah's harsh treatment of Hagar (though Hagar fully deserved it) led to the Jewish people being enslaved in Egypt. On a more pshat level, you could also look at Yosef bragging about his dreams as leading to the Jewish people being enslaved in Egypt, the 10 plagues, and the parting of Yam Suf------How to change tooltip background color in Unity?There is also another solution to this:use dconf-editor to find the following key:whose description said:A n separated list of name:color as defined by the gtk-color-scheme setting.Write the scheme in gedit in the style likes the following(this example is mine), then paste it in the dconf-editor(notice the 'n' at each end of the line):and the problem will be solved immediately.------Despite almost zero energy consumption why does my spaceship scheduled cryostasis in shifts?Without nanotech-repairs you would need to wake up periodically anyways.Just because you're frozen doesn't mean that the you are invulnerable. The cumulative radiation released from the radioactive decay of elements in your body, and the materials your ship are made of, and just anything that leaks past your shielding from the cosmos can be significant.You need to awake periodically so the body's mechanisms can repair itself------Why is this planet attuned with a plane of pure energy?What if the planets magnetic field is not fully non-existential, and has a sole pole, due to which the energy is being constantly pulled by the sole pole(doesn't matter which direction), and giving the effect or illusion of the mysterious / enigmatic powers to the Flora and Fauna on the Planet, and who knows the colonists that settled there might inherit these powers after a few generations/ Centuries------Interview question: If correlation doesn't imply causation, how do you detect causation?Not sure this adds anything, but if you need another thought from philosophy, back in the day, (1960s) we were taught in a philosophy class that Humes 3 criteria of causality required:(1) temporal precedence (presumed cause prior in time);(2) an observable empirical correlation; and(3) that all rival hypotheses had been ruled out.Assuming criteria #3 to be practically impossible, it would follow causation will be forever impossible to demonstrate.------Default umask 077 not applied at session startThis doesn't directly answer your question but this technique might help you shed some light on if there's a stray umask command being run somewhere as part of your shell's config files:The exit is necessary so that the shell returns once it's done.I found the above technique over in this U&L Q&A titled: How to test for possible conflicts while using alias in bashrc?------Lighter alternatives to Visual C 2013?Recently,I have started using to write simple C Programs Using Dev-C By orwelldevcpp Note:I have been only using this IDE to write simple programs(For the 1st year of my Degree) ,So I would suggest that you give a try using this software.however I would like to include some features that are offered in this software From its Official Website.This software is gratis, portable------Ronald and the traffic lightsRonald had just bought a Toyota Prius. Every time the car stopped at a light the engine would turn itself off (that's how Priuses work), and Ronald, having been conditioned by many years of being driven around in non-hybrid vehicles, would be jerked out of his reverie about last night's party with other famous people thinking that the quiet signifies that the car had arrived at its destination------How can I help my project manager deal with schedule pressure?As a developer you need to identify risks and issues as soon as possible so they can be better managed. A lot of developers try to shield management from bad news and / or work very hard to fix problems before they come to light. As a project manager I need to know what your challenges are as soon as possible so I can get you help or mitigate.------Why doesn't sunlight flicker like candle or flame torch?The surface of the Sun, as you can see from the following picture, is not uniform:But it is impossible to see it with your naked eye. You will need a telescope and specialized solar filters (more information here). Notice also that the picture is not showing visible light, but extreme-ultraviolet light. You will need a special telescope for that.Or you can wait for the next eclipse:------Free, lightweight, all-in-one, audio and video format converterWindows onlyVideo / Audio Conversion: XMedia recode can convert almost all known audio and video formats3GP, 3GPP, 3GPP2, AAC, AC3, AMR, ASF, AVI, AVISynth, DVD, FLAC, FLV,H.261, H.263, H.264, M4A, M1V, M2V, M4V, MKV, MMF, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, TS, TRP, MP2, MP3, MP4, MP4V, MOV,QT, OGG, PSP,RM, (S)VCD, SWF, VOB, WAV, WebA, WebM, WMA and WMV.Convert Blu-ray / DVD------DD-WRT: Cannot see client when using wired ethernetI did some googling and it appears to be a bug in the DD-WRT firmware. There is talk on the DD-WRT forum that newer version a of the firmware will fix the issue. SiegeX's fix works great, one additional thing that I would do would be to add it as a startup command in the commands window so that next time your router reboots it will "fix" itself.------What constitutes competency in XML in the .NET world? closedWell these days I would say having a good understanding of how to create a well structured XSD is enough to mark you as competant in XML in the context of .Net considering there are so many XSD -> .Net Object data binding packages avaialable, which handle stuff like serialization and XPATH.But I would recommend some light reading for the underlying principles so you can debug easier------What to do when a jealous coworker is doing my tasks?Talk to your own manager about it - for example you could light-heartedly ask him for more work to do, since someone else is already doing all of yours.After all, that is (one of the many things) that your manager is there to deal with. He may tell you to deal with it yourself, may say it is no big deal, or he may flip his lid.------SSH to a computer that will then SSH to another computer duplicateIf SSH tunnels are not available to you (they can be disabled server-side), then could you reverse the FTP connection?If your local machine can be seen via SSH on a publicly routable IP address and the inaccessible machine can see the outside world thenThis probably isn't something you are going to be able to automate easily though, so if you have tunnels available use that method instead------Recovery from different exercise typesYour question is somewhat generic, although, I think my response to why do we need more rest when lifting heavy? should provide some of the insight you are seeking. Be sure to pay close attention to the paper that is referenced (Recovery in Training: The Essential Ingredient ) and the study (Rhea 2003). In particular, the study looked at training and recovery in trained and untrained groups of study subjects.
