Re: Japanese Reactor blown up?

I was due to take a family vacation in China from Friday 18th. We've decided to leave today instead and stay with Friends in Beijing. We're at Narita now, leaving on UA 897 in a couple of hours.....I feel a bit like the proverbial rat..... :cry: What winds are prevailing? Come to think of it - if w...

Re: Linux #@§$%&**!

To each his own, I am happy when I can avoid microsoft products, they are bloated and create far too much superfluous code. True but... Short version: when I write a piece of code (from which I make $$$), Microsoft is where the money is, not Linux. So... So? ... no enterpreneur view of things. Micr...

It's a real pity that Linux is just a piece of crappy software with no bodily existence.

Linux #@§$%&**!

Does anybody know a good Linux-bashing site? Right now I'm in my second consecutive Linux project, and I simply hate it. I mean, there's a perfectly good Windows world out there - why bother with a good-for-nothing, tree-hugger, green-tea-drinker OS like Linux? As soon as I'm finished with these two...

Gutti out

Dr. ctrl.c. Guttenberg, German defense minister, resigned today because he let himself be caught copying and pasting in his doctoral thesis. It took only two weeks of almost constant fire from all media. I wonder if the whole guy wasn't a fake job altogether. Did anyone notice that affair outside of...

Re: airport shut-downs due to snow?

The de-icing fluid shortage at BRU is supposed to be caused by a general ban of heavy trucks on Belgian highways due to the snow. All of Belgium/Netherlands/Luxembourg are said to be closed to heavy trucks. I had an experience on a German autobahn last week that demonstrated rather well why heavy tr...

Re: A Major Event

Is that Paris, France or Paris, Texas?
If it's that place in France, I expect you ate a steak at a restaurant that serves only frogs.
For the place in Texas, vice versa.
