A typhoon hit our country yesterday (July 16, 2014). Heavy rains and strong winds occurred. Although I didn't feel it since I'm inside my room the whole day, the result is clearly evident in most places and when I get out of my shell. It clearly shows how strong that typhoon was.
And there will be another one coming.
Good Ghu I should bloody well think so, I wondered where you are from so followed the link, the information may be in there somewhere but dammed if I'm game to try and dig it out, tell me you don't read endure that every day!

ehhh it's nothing that couldn't be fixed by about 20 custom adblock rules....
...well aside from the lack of any real content anyway.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

As a last resort to restoring a customer database backup, I bought the sql 2014 developer edition. First installation on a 32-bit workstation failed. Second try is right on the home-office server and is pending...which is the reason for the post. MS product installers seem to be getting bigger and slower. The first install took about 40 minutes to fail, and the second is at about 20 minutes and counting...it has been an afternoon of watching progress bars and failures.
Update: So the 64 bit installation on the server is moving at a snail's pace...so slow that I am tempted to just kill it...around 60 minutes into it now. Yawn. The title of the post made me chuckle as it reminded me of my brother-in-law butchering the Queen song 'Bohemian Rhapsody' while traveling through the beautiful vastness of southern Colorado. He fancies himself quite the singer/entertainer, so for your entertainment, a new version of an old classic. Only the misquotes will be provided, I think you know the rest!
'Sitting where the wind blows...'
'Miss Miller! We will not let you go...'
'The algebra has the devil put aside for me...'
I just reviewed the logs and the installation took about 90 minutes to complete. There were quite a few instances where it would appear to hang, showing no progress for up to 15 minutes at a time...long enough that I considered cancelling. This was on Server 2008R2, quad core phenom @ 3.2GHz, 8 GB, with SSD. Sadly, it was all for naught, as this version also refuses to restore any of the three backup files my client has provided...each one has different error messages! It may be time to let this go for a bit.

GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
