    Dictionaries!

  6. @Tim P,
    If you don't like having long captions on your buttons - try buying a jacket with a zipper instead.

  7. People who go to hot countries, forget to check if the apartment has air con, then complain about the heat ...

  8. People who can afford to go on vacation!

    "Insanity"

    @David W Englishmen who say vacation ...

    I'm not an Englishman although I am a Brit but I spend a lot of time in the States and I've picked up a lot of Americanisms which are quite natural to me now.

    Except aluminum. I'll keep the British way, thank you very much. If it's good enough for Jonny Ive, it's good enough for me.

    Anyways, after reading this PP thread from A to Zed and I realized that I am going to have to find a new IDE...

    ... unless ... 2015r3 has implemented that GimpMaskLib they keep talking about.

    As an alpha tester I wouldn't normally comment but in this case, I can confirm that GimpMaskLib is receiving plenty of attention...

    People who complain when Englishmen use the word "Vacation" - even though those very same people also complain when we use the word "Holiday" :)

    And they both appear to be correct
