Holy crap, I'm almost speechless:

I don't know what to say to the OP on that one. Where do you go with a question like that? I think you handled it as well as can be expected.


Maybe ask if they also run pirated software?
Probably would only be surprised if they said 'no'.

That's a new one, aside to the questions asking for exam dumps and free copies of books.

So three days after implementing replication, I have a pile or replication-related errors on my desk (cannot truncate table because it's replicated, lob size exceeds max replicated text size)

How the #$%^%&^% did this pass QA testing?

Oh, let me guess, the app wasn't part of the testing. $#%$!!!!

You know everybody can read this thread, right? It was an honest mistake and I apologised immediately. Is this really necessary?

Well, I know at least one person who is totally lost on this one.

So we had some torrential rain yesterday (up to 6" in some places in a couple hours, more than double the normal rainfall for August) Roads flooded, basements flooded (my house is on a crawl, so no flood there,) cars underwater (literally!) There's even one picture of a freeway overpass, 14'-8" clearance, with water up to the bottom.

Wife went grocery shopping after she got off work, because of the rain stopped in a Lowe's parking lot on her way home to try to wait out the worst of it. Well, She got home at 7:30 this morning after I went out and picked her up. The city started offering people bus rides to the nearby community center for the night, which she took them up on.

For the first time in anyone's memory around here *ALL* the major freeways have at least some closure due to flooding. At some point today, the wife and I are going to drive over to our new house (under construction and *almost* done) to check on it. I went by yesterday when the rain was starting to take a look, and the sump pump was running full tilt, so now I'm concerned the basement flooded...
Thankfully, the only thing(s) that would be ruined would be the furnace and some spare construction materials (bricks, tile, paint,) and the furnace would be replaced I would expect by the builders (seeing as they currently technically own the house still.)

And my work closed for the day, although I've got some stuff I'm going to do from home later...

Oh, and it's supposed to rain *AGAIN* today...
