I agree with above. The purpose of this site is to bring people together based on subject rather than location. In any case, most US coders work through the night so we can catch them first thing here (in the UK)
Yeah, cool idea! But why only the forums? lets split the internet! US, Europe, Downunder, Japan, … And non-US people have to pay taxes to view US internet, and non EU people have to pay taxes for viewing EU internet!!!
This way everybody gets richer!!! isnt that cool?? It is!! Money for all!!
P.S. sorry couldn’t resist. why do you want forums with europeans only? Here there are people from all over the world and thats a good thing.

Lol! I agree about glColour. I have variables called Colour' and then errors when I apply same to any function\method\item thats US. Stooopid! Queens English isColour’ not `color’. How can they write compilers that interpret this stuff?
If you take this to its logical conclusion, we’d all end up talking to our immediate colleagues on a crappy intranet. Say what you like about the americans, but they do have some bright people over there - although subjecting the rest of the world to programs like “Bum Wars” (where the tv producers pay homeless people to fight in the street while being filmed) is stretching it.
Bum Wars? Sounds like great TV to me. Better than some of the unadulterated crap the BBC used to tax me to make.
Don’t forget the details knackered, little things like putting Man on the Moon, saving Europe from fascism, economic despair then communism. I know an event as significant as “Bum Wars” can obscure the little stuff I’ve mentioned but if you look hard enough maybe you can come up with some redeeming qualities in those irritating Americans.

There’s some crap on the BBC, but on the whole it’s far more engaging than anything america’s come up with. You’re scottish, though - the scotts aren’t renound for their good taste Bum Wars would appeal to people who eat fried mars bars…
saving Europe from faschism
I assume that’s a joke, in very bad taste? Or is your historical knowledge based around hollywood?
