I find the German language to be fascinating. In French a hard disk ("disque dur") would be masculine.

Why inanimate objects have a gender at all, I have no idea. As a software developer who thinks in algorithms, I've never managed to come up with a simple rule that would help establish the correct association. Back in school, I simply "got it" going with my gut and always got great grades in French, but ask me to explain what the actual rules are...and I wouldn't know where to start.

Just as well I've never had to write a grammar checker.
