No Software patents! 

"Under the influence of the patent system and big industry lobbyists, the European Union is on the verge of making a huge mistake: to pass a law that would legalize software patents."

Patents on software are just as wrong as expanding the patent system to literature. With patents on story elements, no movie could be published without having to firstly check whether there is any general idea in the storyline that someone patented during the last 20 years. Here's an example: At first sight, Dirty Dancing and Titanic are two very distinct movies. However, if there were patents on story elements, then the makers of Dirty Dancing could have sued the studio of Titanic. Both movies have a scene in which a poor boy takes a rich girl from a party of her social peers to a dancing party of his group, and she enjoys it. Dirty Dancing came out only nine years before Titanic, so any patent would still have been in force. No one knows whether James Cameron had that Dirty Dancing scene in mind as he wrote the Titanic script. Maybe Cameron never saw Dirty Dancing but the patent (if it existed) could be used against him anyway.

Sending out mail problems 

Sending out a message to my subscribers that they could download GGSearch v3.8

Do to my stupidness 100 subscribers got that message 3 times...

If you are one of the lucky ones... Sorry for that..

Next time I will take some coffee first.

Italian and Slovenian language update 

Ales Kosir and Salvatore Scire already send me the new language update..

I will also include this into the next release...

What option did I enable? 

It was kinda hard to see what option was enabled.

Think it is better now:

I will release this with the official GGSearch v3.8 update (v3.8.4 to be exact).

GGSearch friends can always notify me when they wanted it yesterday... I will send you the file.
