in thread How many continents have you visited?

Continents like planets have various and changing definitions...

Anyway who wants to live in a worldregion named after an oriental girl which had intercourse with cattle? ;-)

    Versus living in a place named after a self-promoting European?

    Information about American English usage here and here. Floating point issues? Please read this before posting. — emc

      Well you know, if the internet wasn't about porn, it would be about conspiracy theories... =)

      According to Italian wikipedia about the origin of the name Amerigo#Origine_e_diffusione

      Deriva dal nome germanico Emmerich,


      Could it be that Roland Emmerich was always meant to infiltrate American film business and starting to undermine public moral with pictures of total disaster...???

      Let's dig into some obscure copies of long lost archives of remote province towns and we will find clear evidence about a hidden agenda to morally destroy this "Emmerich" continent.

[LanX]: (not a high priority bug because I can use some HTML entities in the second string)
[Corion]: base64 is padded to a multiple of 4 chars (or something)
[LanX]: misunderstanding, I joined them before converting to base64
[Corion]: Also, I would be wary of encodings and try to make really sure that both input strings are UTF-8. Maybe join the input strings from one source together to see whether they decode as bad or not
[Corion]: LanX: Then the problem should persist without encoding to base64 too ;)
[LanX]: I think it's a flag problem ... I'll produce a reprodocable example for SOPW
[Corion]: "flag problem" to me sounds like "contains UTF-8 bytes but was never properly decoded to an UTF-8 string"
[LanX]: not my code ...
[choroba]: yeah, sounds like one of the strings is not flagged as UTF-8
[choroba]: which usually means its input wasn't handled correctly
