I like to think I've gotten better at both of these items with age. Knowing everything and talking over other people is something that many people struggle with at one point or another during their lives. With wisdom comes patience and with knowledge comes humility.


That last sentence says a lot.
The more you know, the more evident it is that you don't know it all.

So I've had to spend most of the day working directly on a server via RDP. Only it's in Europe, so one hour ahead. Was sitting here thinking, wow lots of people still in the office for 6 pm... Oh yeah it's really 5 pm... Was then getting ready to leave

Rodders...


Happy new year to you too.

Can I assume from you message that you think Lisbon isn't in Europe, and neither is Athens? That would be news to the Portuguese and the Greeks, I'm sure!

There is a philosophical question, often kicked around our office, about what happens when two people who know everything have an argument.


I'm sure I've seen that on gaming forums. 10+ page arguments that degrade into insults and name calling.


"COME AND FIGHT ME IRL F****T"

Isn't that usually how it ends? Only with less accurate spelling on the big words.

This is usually preceded by some obscure references to Nazis and Hitler...

Tom,

And a happy new year to you too!

I make no assumptions of other parts of Europe just this one little part of Europe the server was sitting in . France to be exact. And it was defiantly one hour ahead. Please insert you own joke there
It always amazes me that the whole of UK is in the same time zone - er oh go on then insert you own joke there as well!

Rodders...

Oh and in other news,

Now going to SQL Saturday Chicago end of April as I'm in town.
Anyone from the Thread going?

Oh which reminds me, attending the BI SQL Skills and the Hardware one the week after. Anyone planning on attending these or the other SQL Skills courses on at the same time (April 28 - May 2, and May 5-6)
Sadly got to fly back on the 6 as I'm seeing Yes in London on the Thursday - actually forgot I had a ticket and almost booked flights and hotel for the whole of the second week.

Rodders...
