Spiderman's Politically Correct Replacement

GCPSoft Re:PC? (608 comments)

I'm sorry to disagree, but in Argentina THERE ARE strong racial issues. In the city of Buenos Aires, the "porteños" are very xenophobic and racists, even against their own country fellows from other "provincias". And don't talk about other countries near Argentina... Calling "bolitas" to some people (a despective motto the porteños uses for refering to the bolivians) is a clear example of a xenophobic way of talking. Ask for what is a "cabecita negra" in Buenos Aires and you will see. Most argentinians consider the europeans in general as brothers, but denies their closest brotherhood to their own american fellows. They even think they are a first world country, even while there are still people living on the countryside in 18th century's conditions. Racism is a big issue in there. My sister lives there since 2004 and I saw first hand what happens when your skin color is not bright white, just like most european's skin.

The New Commodore 64

GCPSoft Crap... (339 comments)

"Don't forget that the new Commodore 64 is a fully functional PC compatible, so you can even install and use the latest versions of Windows if you really feel you need to." Well, at least we will have the possibility to show a BSOD on the Commodore 64 after all...

Pepsi Moving To Bottles Made of Plant Material

GCPSoft Re:How about glass (321 comments)

In Uruguay, Coke is bottled in returnable plastic bottles too. That means they wash and refill plastic bottles just like with the glass made bottles. Shamefull.

Common Traits of the Veteran Unix Admin

GCPSoft Re:vim? really? (592 comments)

Yes, vim. I love the way it highlights whatever code I'm writing. I even wrote a filter to add syntax highlight for my own configuration files when I program something new. So make no mistakes, vim is a very improved tool, and as I can use vi where vim is not to be found, I prefer myself the improved version over any other text editor in the world. Did you know there's a version for Windows too?

Well, we may be able to find a second hand warp core, ejected to save a nearly exploding starship, left by a foolish Federation captain, and still not found by the Ferengi somewhere along the way and adapt it...

Google Instant

GCPSoft GCPSoft writes  |  more than 4 years ago

GCPSoft (1176501) writes "Google have done it again... Google Instant is a new search enhancement that shows results as you type. We are pushing the limits of our technology and infrastructure to help you get better search results, faster. Our key technical insight was that people type slowly, but read quickly, typically taking 300 milliseconds between keystrokes, but only 30 milliseconds (a tenth of the time!) to glance at another part of the page. This means that you can scan a results page while you type."
