It peaks at four? (????)

I'm either a manslut, or you're a priest.

OK, so I do live in Brazil, we're a more open society etc etc etc but ARE YOU A FUCKING AMISH?

I'm well past four and I don't even think I'm at MY peak yet.

Timberwolf (a.k.a. Firefox) Alpha 1 For AmigaOS

adelgado Re:...really? (152 comments)

Well, as a geek born in the 90's I'd like to understand why people still use Amigas...

If it's just for the coolness I can easily appreciate it, hell, I ran Windows 3.11 for a few months on my Core 2 Quad as my primary OS just because I could, but otherwise are there any significant applications or niches Amiga OS fills that aren't quite addressed by modern Unix or Windows operating systems?

Did Chicago Lose Olympic Bid Due To US Passport Control?

adelgado Re:No. (1040 comments)

As a Brazilian living in Rio myself, I agree with you.

But I see matters even simplier:

USAÂhad the Olympics 4 times already. Wouldn't be them.
London's already in Europe and it's the next one. This vettoes Madrid.
Rio de Janeiro is the most beutiful city on Earth. Politically, it's good, 'cause we need one in South America (and Africa, for that matter). Also, Tokyo already had Olympics there.

Scammer Plants a Fake ATM At Defcon 17

adelgado Re:Pedant Warning! (394 comments)

He likes to reflect on how, of all the countries he's travelled to in the world (most of which do not have English as a local language), the one he had the hardest trouble finding a toilet in (due to comprehension problems) was America.

America isn't a country tough, you know, it's a continent. I'm pretty sure all these questions wouldn't get him to a restroom in the part of America I live, unless spoken in Portuguese.

Unix Dict/grep Solves Left-Side-of-Keyboard Puzzle

"P", "O", and "N" are not on the left side of the keyboard.

If I did understood, that was the joke. The other hand would be holding the penis... Although that personally wouldn't work for me :P

How Do You Justify the Existence of IT?

adelgado Re:Don't take technology for granted (411 comments)

That's because you're taking technology for granted. If you weren't there, that technology couldn't be deployed to help people get their jobs done. Which means no servers, no desktops, no laptops, no networks, no printers, nothing, nada, zip, zilch, zero.

Probably no Zip either, friend...
