I know what you mean.  I sometimes use it to translate into German just to give my Teutonic friends a good chuckle!  It realy doesn't do well with idioms in either direction.  But for short simple things like your 3-word motto it'll be close

@mhrackin: That is precisely why Google Translate was invented!

I've seen two many things translated into ?English? from other languages to trust this for my family motto

@mhrackin: The philosophy of churrascaria is no concept of too much.

The Latin version of "Everything to Excess" would be my family motto ... if only I knew Latin

@anon: I had a table in Huntsville.  Pity I didn't recognize you in person or you didn't introduce yourself.

I'll be there next year -- there were a few folks in Hawaiian shirts -- I was the one in the AWESOME Hawaiian shirt LOL

@EB2: If you are going to spend only one day, check their web site first so you don't miss something.

That's the beauty of putting Antedeluvian in charge of planning this sort of thing -- he will have everything organized 110%

@mhrackin: Green means feed me, red means no more (for now; you can flip back to green anytime.

It was an AMAZING meal -- one that will live on in my memory until I shrug off this mortal coil...

I had a table in Huntsville.  Pity I didn't recognize you in person or you didn't introduce yourself.

I would have been easy to find, I guarantee I was the only VE3 callsign there.

Cheers, Wayne

I spent a day and a half at the National Museum of the USAF, then went back and spent another two days. If you are going to spend only one day, check their web site first so you don't miss something. Although if you make Dayton an annual event, you can go back to the museum each year also. When I was there, they had just received the Hexagon KH-9 spy satellite, so there is always something arriving.

As I'm sure that you know from personal experience by now, you can have as much or as little as you wish of EVERYTHING.  The philosophy of churrascaria is no concept of too much.  YOU control the serving by means of a disc with RED on one side, GREEN on the other.  Green means feed me, red means no more (for now; you can flip back to green anytime.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
