Can I translate this to spanish? I want to use them around the place, but some of these are way too english for people to understand. Oh and here in the office I coined what we call a "Maraña China" or "Chinese Mess" for when a code is s baly written and unformatted, that's basically unreadable or impossible to understand what it does.

That's one nice article. I live in South America (Venezuela to be more precise) and publishers refuse to accept my money (even though I am trying desperately to throw it at them) I have been trying to buy Artemis Fowl in Ebook format since november, and a couple of Android SDK related books, since the latter are way too heavy to handle an acceptable Shipping fee (60 dollars plus tax in shipping? What are they thinking seriously is books, dead trees not gold containers!) I decided to plunk down into an eBook edition. guess what? I can't because I am not a resident of the US of America. So let's see here: My green bills are as good as any others I will have the same limitations than anyone else The kindle has a very elegant way of screwing its customers Why in the name of peter can't I buy the cursed books? it is because they are afraid I will build a bomb with it (¿?) Sometimes it makes me think that we are a long way to be a modern, globalized, digital world. Way too far. You say ebooks will replace books in a couple of decades, I say they will probably never be able to replace them entirely unless publishers get their acts together and commit to publish instead of labeling everyone as a stealing pirate and mistreating their customers. PS: Apple is crazy if they think I am paying 40 Dollars for a color 100 page eBook that only runs on a new ipad 3.

You dude rock so much! I have been eyeing HomeBrewing since my trip to Bogota on 2007, there is this one place that specializes on a red lager that is ten thousand dimensions of amazing. I just doubt I could find the ingredients here in Venezuela. maybe in 2012 I will try and follow the example Wheaton gave. OH also, i love your writing style.

How do you reckon I could do this in an open cubicle in a bank? The CRT is just burning my retinas away. I tried dimming the brightness of the 20 year old screen to no avail it is still torture. At home I already tried bias lightning almost by accident (my lights are so bright, that they reflected off the screen so I moved them behind and it has proved to be quite the nice solution. Still people that works on corporate too light with high windows places with old as fossils CRTs are doomed to not be able to see forever.
