comment Is a gentleman a “cowboy”?
So what is the precise literal translation of "caballero" to English? According to google translate, both "horseman" and "horse rider" are "Jinete"

comment Is there a non-PITA way to type accented Spanish characters with an English keyboard?
I created a quick-and-dirty software utility that allows me to use the Ctrl or Ctrl+Shift (capitalized) versions to change letters to their accented versions, or make the "?" and "!? flip upside down. It is kind of chintzy and a one-trick-pony, but if anybody wants it, I made it publicly available at 1drv.ms/1H3MvED. Note: The "copy to clipboard" button is not functitonal; you can, though, simply select and copy the contents of the multiline textbox.

"Don Quixote" is the Spanish book. I will make my English/Spanish PDF of it available for users here and post a link (give me a couple of minutes).

comment Does saying “Hola Hola” imply impatience?
Interesting that you mention the Simpsons, as the only Simpson I ever watched was O.J. (in his football years, not his court case) until now, where I am starting to watch the cartoon in Spanish (I never watched it in English).

I didn't know about that site; is Noam Chomsky active on it?

Maybe "teasing" is the word you're looking for; a mild sort of insult or playful "poking."
