You have the same amount of hair, it's just moved....ears, back, teeth....
What? You mean corporate consolidating multiple apps DBs onto a single SQL server cluster run by a contractor. Then having all off your admin rights removed and now every time you need to do something that used to take 5 minutes. You have to log a job through a help desk then wait for the contractor to do it for you. Doesn't make your life easier?Full belly, and very likely got this useless twat of an 'enterprise support' technician in hot water with his boss for his endless delays/non-helpfulness in troubleshooting a SAN/virtualization problem.
Remind me why in the world we have enterprise support contracts again?
He told his fellow Russians in his entourage that if their people, who often must wait in line for most goods, saw the conditions of U.S. supermarkets, “there would be a revolution.”
TL;DR: Today's mood is:Shoppers and employees stopped him to shake his hand and say hello. In 1989, not everyone was carrying a phone and camera in their pocket so Yeltsin “selfies” weren’t a thing yet.
Yeltsin asked customers about what they were buying and how much it cost, later asking the store manager if one needed a special education to manage a store. In the Chronicle photos, you can see him marveling at the produce section, the fresh fish market, and the checkout counter. He looked especially excited about frozen pudding pops.
“Even the Politburo doesn’t have this choice. Not even Mr. Gorbachev,” he said.
The fact that stores like these were on nearly every street corner in America amazed him. They even offered free cheese samples. According to Asin, Yeltsin didn’t leave empty-handed, as he was given a small bag of goodies to enjoy on his trip.
About a year after the Russian leader left office, a Yeltsin biographer later wrote that on the plane ride to Yeltsin’s next destination, Miami, he was despondent. He couldn’t stop thinking about the plentiful food at the grocery store and what his countrymen had to subsist on in Russia.
In Yeltsin’s own autobiography, he wrote about the experience at Randall’s, which shattered his view of communism, according to pundits. Two years later, he left the Communist Party and began making reforms to turn the economic tide in Russia. You can blame those frozen Jell-O Pudding pops.
“When I saw those shelves crammed with hundreds, thousands of cans, cartons and goods of every possible sort, for the first time I felt quite frankly sick with despair for the Soviet people,” Yeltsin wrote. “That such a potentially super-rich country as ours has been brought to a state of such poverty! It is terrible to think of it.”
Woooooooow what are the chances of that even happening? Two batteries in the same week??Battery died in the truck Saturday week. Battery died in the wife's car Friday, leaving me at the gas station. Yesterday, broke some POS plastic coupling on the radiator hose getting the battery out. Autozone had to order the hose and all because they don't sell just the coupling and it wasn't in the store. $205 for the battery and hose.
The last time they both went out (1/2014 ?) within a couple of weeks of each other. I can't believe the engineers have battery life down to that close of a time frame.Woooooooow what are the chances of that even happening? Two batteries in the same week??
I had something like that happen a couple years ago...got a flat on my car, switched to my wife's car, got a flat on her car like a day later, and of course it was a Honda Fit, so it was a funky-sized little tire that wasn't super standard for availability locally. Amazing how quickly & easily your entire transportation system can go down
They probably have a pod of calcium carbonate inside with a time release shell. They set it to dissolve and neutralize the acid when they want to sell you a new battery :^PThe last time they both went out (1/2014 ?) within a couple of weeks of each other. I can't believe the engineers have battery life down to that close of a time frame.
That happened to me a couple months ago as well. I stopped driving around in the Porsche or the GTR. Once I tried to start them, I found that the batteries in both had permanently died. Now I try to drive them once every couple of months.Woooooooow what are the chances of that even happening? Two batteries in the same week??
Google image'd currywurst, that looks dang good!I got to try currywurst tonight! I've been wanting to try it for years now. I was gonna take my mother out to eat, and wanted to go to a Greek diner I've never been to, but they close at 3pm on Sunday(!!). She suggested a German place kinda far from home, so I said sure...I got a liter of some kind of doppelbock, and the currywurst. Delicious! Icing on the cake was we were served by Saul Goodman wearing lederhosen. Looked like him anyway, and had a similar personality :^D
