Viruses, worms and now bacteria. At least the Chinese figured out a way to make rice out of it.

Sorry to be today’s kill joy but I’m pretty sure the characters for “desktop” mean “Taiwan-style” and the other characters mean “rice with a variety of mushrooms mixed in”, i.e., “Taiwan-style Mushroom Rice”.

But “desktop bacteria” is probably more apt, anyway!

Could also be served with Windows Vista or 7 (Sorry, Windows XP owners…)! These also cancels out Norton or McAfee, because when you add them both, they had bad spamming taste.

~ Pete: correct, Taiwan style.
but the translator has a bright idea: when in doubt, transliterate. Xiangu simply means fresh mushrooms.

Yugan: My hanzi dictionary doesn’t have the character for “gu” in Xianggu. But I know that xian1 or xian3 means “fresh” from my prior Japanese study (“sen” in Japanese). But I can’t figure what “gu” means.

Za2Jun4 or Za2Jun1 appears to mean “Assorted Mushrooms”. (Or as my dictionary had it “assorted fungi”.)

Anna Rexia: No, my last name definitely does NOT begin with a Y. Sorry, no cigar. I’m not currently living in Asia these days, either, but rather somewhere on the east coast of North America.

Yugan

What kind of dictionary doesn’t have 菇? It means mushroom. 草字頭,八劃/grass radical, 8 strokes, gu first tone.
Assorted fungi it is.
Anna: my surname doesn’t begin with a Y either. Isn’t that a coincidence?

Yugan: That would be William McNaughton’s “Reading & Writing Chinese” published by Tuttle. I’ve got both the simplified and traditional character editions, but only looked in the Simplified since the image was stated by webmaster to be from the Mainland.

Will check the traditional edition, but when I looked for “Gu1” the character wasn’t there.

Methinks I need a bigger, more extensive set of Hanzi Cidian!
Thanks for the follow-up.

Yugan

Pete / Ani: 菇 is 菇 simplified and traditional. Methinks I agree, it’s time for you to get a more extensive dictionary.
