[00:16:11] <brada> chiv: done any playing in chinese? ;)
[00:17:15] <chiv> yeah, i saw its all included, but really I probably owe you a bit of thanks for nudging me back into studying the glyphs
[00:17:45] <chiv> still a long way to go before i can really read it though
[00:18:54] <chiv> i think 2500 is the minimum threshold, according to the system i am using i know about 500...
[00:21:30] <brada> i personally dont understand how/why the chinese/asians decided that a bunch of tiny pictures was the way to go :p
[00:21:42] <brada> looks nice
[00:21:48] <brada> except when i try to write it
[00:22:37] <chiv> its probably not as hard as you would really think, its just having the patience, time, exposure etc
[00:24:48] <chiv> there is something intangibly unique about reading them that is quite hard to describe, I can read most writing systems but none of them are quite the same as chinese
[00:26:21] <brada> too many of them look the same too :/
[00:27:48] <chiv> I agree, they do all look very similar at first, but once you start to be able to pick them apart and recognize them, its almost as if it jumped off the page and punched a hole straight into your brain
[00:28:26] <chiv> because in its own subtle way, every single one is unique
[00:28:39] <chiv> subtle being the operative word...
[00:31:15] <chiv> i like puzzles as well, and it is basically the worlds oldest and most immense memory puzzle

[00:32:50] <chiv> if you are looking for an eastern writing system that is easy to learn though, you cant go wrong with korean
[00:33:17] <chiv> their alphabet is possibly the most genius writing system ever created
[00:34:21] <chiv> plus it looks cool and you can possibly learn it all within an hour
[00:40:53] <chiv> one day i want to make a writing system website, but got i hate making websites

[15:11:16] <traveler__> chiv: i think that we are collectively returning to hieroglyphs (icons e.g. android phones, iphones, new ui win8?, this ubuntu thing) some maybe asians were onto something :)
[15:12:46] <edheldil_> that's a rather far-fetched statement :)
[15:12:55] <edheldil_> or simile

[16:43:23] <traveler__> sure, but there is no sign of reversing current trend pictogram > text
[16:44:11] <traveler__> now we only have to forget about usability of straight text (cli) and voilĂ ! new hieroglyphs with stacked and stacked meaning ;)
