Off Topic

I was kicking around this idea for a while, creating a thread dedicated to random thoughts. Off topic if you will. I am not sure if this has been done before, if so my apologies.

Does anyone find it strange that Notre Dame fire occurred during renovations? And possibly nobody was on site.

Re: Off Topic

Apology not accepted. Just kidding.

Any rules?

Technically, if one is posting random thoughts there would be no response to what one has posted. Each posting would be a discrete random thought.

Re: Off Topic

Why is it that when catching a train home to then catch a bus only to have to wait for it because it's running late. And yet if the train arrives 5 mins late I can see the bus leaving on time therefore having to still wait for the next bus. Just saying.

Re: Off Topic

Did you ever notice how at parties, people show just how pushy they can be with conversations that start with "I know this is really none of my business but..."?

Re: Off Topic

Just a question, since I have never been there. Does the rain fall mainly in the plain in Spain?

At least the twin towers of the cathedral stayed up - unlike others.

Re: Off Topic

Colin, if that was a dig at the 9/11 attack, you just stepped over a line. There is NO TIME when an explicit act of global terrorism is anything but a heinous act. Nobody died in the Notre Dame fire but the 9/11 attack took over 3000 lives. If you were attempting to be funny, that one didn't merely fall flat. It dug its own hole and buried itself.

Read into it what you want, it's your interpretation. I was referring to the twin towers of Notre Dame being substantially built in the 13th century. Other towers like Windsor, Yorkminster did not.

Nowhere did I knock or "have a dig" at the 11/9 attack.

I should have also have helpfully pointed out to Americans here, that Notre Dame is a cathedral in Paris, France. France is a country in Europe. Actually outside the USA borders.

Ok, off-topic, well, completely off-topic so I decided to post here.

I have explained many times to my colleagues (non-database people) when at the final end of a process when files have to be merged (numerous pdfs into one pdf) to prefix the file names with a 3 or 4 digit number but spaced in 10's, just in case, as there always is, a late addition or two. Why they don't get it is beyond me, real head-banging stuff.

Re: Off Topic

If I was really paying attention, I would have written 5, 10, 15... not start with 1 because then you can't put something in front of 1 without having to shift items. Some people put their mouth into gear before they start their brain. With me, the fingers are oft typing before I start my brain.
