people with more money bought a second car, as happened in mexico

The New PHP

hagnat hammers and screwdrivers (254 comments)

Programming Languages are tools. And tools serve a purpose and are better doing one task than other tools, even those which could be used to serve that task.
I have been coding in PHP for the past 8 years or so. Its really easy to code in PHP, but it has several known flaws which i have to manage to work around.
Last year i got a job that required me to code in Perl. Its ugly as a baboon's ass, but its perfect to work with regex and huge text files.
Recently i have been coding in Python, and its god damn fast! But there are several quirks in the language that i can't stop hating, specially its "We're all consenting adults here" slogan. I have been looking forward to learn Ruby and Java now, or even to get back to my academic days and code something in C/C++

So, stop being a language fanboy, and know your 'enemy' and learn that they are better suited to do some tasks than your favored language.

The Great Ethanol Scam

hagnat ethanol scam? (894 comments)

weird... we use ethanol over here in Brazil for a long time already, and aside from one crisis on availability of fuel in the past, we never had any problems with our cars. And we blend 25% ethanol into our gas.

European Union Asks US To Free ICANN

hagnat Re:Uh, no (503 comments)

Weren't the Soviets the first ones into Berlin?

yes they were, but that only happened in the end of WW2 (in the european front atleast), AFTER the US joined the war.

the point was that, without support from the US, the world would look a lot different.
