Pakistan vs India, that could end badly. From my understanding of the issues a bit like Catholics vs Protestants in Northern Ireland (except both side have nukes and standing army's!)
Hopefully it will work itself out with voilence but the chance is there
"Hey everyone, who is watching the IndoPaki game!?"
I just Googled it and I'm actually surprised to find that a Dutch cricket team does exist.
There's even a "Royal Dutch Cricket Federation"
I've never had the torture of seeing or playing a cricket game.
In fact I've never heard anyone mention it outside some English and Indian people here on CP
I also am not a fan of cricket, I never watch the games being played of Pakistan itself. I am much more like a football player, I used to play football so much that I was found mostly in the football ground than I ever was at home. Just as introduction, you may want to see this, NiCe TrIcKz! - YouTube[^] or Football Shoot! - YouTube[^]. Then, I accidently joined programming world and I miss football.
But, the main thing is, my girlfriend, or wife-to-be is from India and man, you can't just feel the hype there is when there is a four, six or an out in either team.
We are very active when there is a match of India and Pakistan. That is the only reason I watch cricket match.

We know! They've beaten England twice in 20 over matches!
There's also a Netherlands Baseball team which reached the semi-final in the last World Classic (2013) and is expected to do well in the next (2017). Anything else I can tell you about what you're missing on your own doorstep?

I think more English than Dutch know this
The Dutch really don't care about cricket, the closest cricket club for me is about 50 km away.
Some provinces don't have a cricket club at all (as far as I can find).
Compare that to football (or soccer for Americans), every town, village, and hamlet has at least one football club.
I think the Dutch do pretty well in a lot of sporting events.
The problem is I'm not particularly chauvinistic and I couldn't care less about sports
The only sport I really can't get around because it's literally everywhere is football.
And ice skating. I even know the outcomes, Sven Kramer won
I am trying to get a Win 7 box on the wireless network at my paraents, following Griffs advice I went to a local Computer Shop & bought an 802.11 adaptor. Got it home booted the Win 7 and opened the pack and had the revelation that these days you get the device some badly translated instructions with details of where to download the driver. Okay I am using my Win 10 box to type this but imagine the issues caused by buying the adaptor and not having a access to the driver. Come on! a cheap CD or even the relevant files on the device as a small read flash memory (it's not hard I have designed a device that does that!)
I know what you mean.
You'd have thought that for something that allow you to connect to the internet, they'd provide a driver rather than expecting you to connect to the internet (presumably with the device) first...
It's like when I worked for a VDT manufacturer - they weighed a ton! So for Health and Safety (this was in the eighties, you understand) they added a pamphlet of "how to unpack it" instructions.
First thing that went in the box - the instructions. On top of that was a huge lump of metal and glass, then the (all metal) keyboard, ...
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
At least the sneaker-net of today is much better than just days past when files bigger than 1.4MB (or so since you could never really use all of it!) required special handling...remember filesplitter? Good luck!
Most curious, I upgraded VS 2015 with a variety of new tools; now it's slowed down to a crawl; that's not so unexpected. I'll remove the new tools one-by-one, and see if/when I get a speed-bump.
Meanwhile, back in VS 2013, a (WinForm) project (created in VS 2013) refuses to respond to keyboard input (when open for editing). Closing, re-opening, VS 2013; re-booting the computer : no change. Yep, other projects opened in 2013 show no problem getting keyboard input.
And, same project opens in VS 2015, and, no problem with editing.
But, in VS 2015, with all these incredible tools installed (including ReSharper), I add some entries to a big Dictionary of Type <Enum,Action> ... and I get a run-time error that I gotta duplicate key being added.
So, that's no real surprise, I was working fast, and copying existing key-value pairs with their Enum value keys and lambdas for the Action, and pasting them, and modifying them to add additional "features."
But, what is surprising ... disturbing even ... is that the the run-time error report doesn't tell me which key I am trying to enter twice. I keep thinking something is wrong, wrong, wrong with that.
time for a break: these horses are getting too sweaty ...

I recently installed the free Community Edition of VS2015. I like it, but it loads projects at about half the speed of VS2012 Pro. I had to buy the Pro edition in 2012 because, unlike the 2015 Community Edition, the free versions of 2012 did not accept any plug-ins (like Wix). I now have both versions running on my machine, but the NuGet tool does not work at all with the older 2012 version. I do not know what broke NuGet. Maybe it was the installation of the 2015 edition, or maybe 2012 has incompatibilities with Windows 10. I upgraded to 10 just before I installed VS2015, so now I don't know which of the two installs broke 2012.
Get me coffee and no one gets hurt!
