Did you know????

The word "protégé" is Latin for "protect", French & Portuguese for "protected" (roughly), and Spanish for "protects" (roughly).
It's also English for "protégé".

It's also the opposite of contégé.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Sorry, STMA, but "protégé" is French for "protected". The Latin equivalent is protectus (-a, -um).

Directly translated, it means slightly different things, not the same in each language.

I am afraid that statement is too wrong and too silly to bother arguing about.

I probably should have mentioned that I'm using [url]translate.google.com[/url], so there's bound to be errors. I'm certain about the French, though.

The first computer I ever used was a timeshare terminal on a DEC PDP-10. At college (that's university for anyone reading from Yerp), I'm pretty sure we had an IBM 3033, but the history info I've been able to find does not properly align with the dates of my attendance.

Sorry, I don't speak slang, what is Yerp? The internet definition I found does not fit the context you gave.
Speaking of discontinued computers . . . did you know????

People are astounded by the fact that the Apollo 11 shuttle had less powerful computers than their smartphones. Honestly, the computer wouldn't have to be that great (measured by today's standards). HeII, a laser pointer, two cans of beans, and a microwave oven probably have more collective processing power.

So when DavidH gave you the correct translation, your response is not 'thank you for giving me the correct version' but 'I choose to be wrong'. An interesting (and irritating) attitude.
