    The Covid-19 thread

    Whether Thalidomide is a good example, the more important point is that in the intense rush to put out a vaccine, the testing process will no doubt be cut as short as possible. The usual development cycle of something as complex as a vaccine is on the order of ten years. Now we have dozens of organizations around the world under intense pressure to get one out ASAP. People are desperate- we all want relief from this pandemic. So I suspect the actual testing of the new drug will be by billions of people. There are probably a dozen huge companies around the world going at this 7x24, and soon they will be releasing product. Which one will you take? The one tested for 30 days or 90 days?
  2. I run the website and Internet infrastructure for thai360.com (and the former nanaplaza.com). The costs are not too high, as long it remains useful. It's good to read the appreciation of our efforts. Thanks! Jigger
  3. Hey Mekong, the email you have registered with the board, an hotmail.com address, is bouncing:

    <xxxxx@hotmail.com>: host                                                                                                                               
        hotmail-com.olc.protection.outlook.com[104.47.37.33] said: 550 5.5.0                                                                                    
        Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable. n

     

      Kindly change it to a working address?

    thanks

  4. I'd love to know the back-story to this: does she have a clue? Maybe she chose it cause the curly letters look cute? Or did the tattoo artist do it for a laugh? Or to pay her back for being annoying? Her name is Barbara, so she insisted on a transliteration!
  5. Saw this on Reddit, apparently it means "fresh spring rolls"? (playing around with attaching pix...)
  6. ...and thanks for the kind words, sysadmins can sometimes feel unappreciated ;-)
  7. The latest iteration of the new server seems to be running smoothly, so I put it into production. With any luck it will run steadily; meanwhile the upgraded Nagios monitoring system will be watching closely. If anyone sees problems, do let me know. Jigger
  8. Being filthy rich must be a real drag on your life... all the lawyers and sycophants you have to hire...
  9. As some of you may know, I upgraded the server that runs thai360.com a few days ago. This supposedly-improved server has proved balky and stubborn, with the database crashing at regular intervals. I spent a bunch of time tonight working on it- but had to give up and go back to the original server for the moment, which is where I'm posting this. With any luck, I'll get the new setup working shortly, and will move everything back there. If not, I'll be picking up the few days of posts that may be missing here and get everything synced up. Apologies for any inconvenience.... Jigger
  10. Agreed. But, OTOH if you're mgmt, you have to have some ways to motivate the servers to pay attention to customers and not lose checks. A smart manager will announce this policy, insist it is strictly enforced, and then be very generous with exceptions ;-)
  11. Anyone know what the Thai says at the end of that scene?
  12. Yup, guess that space used to be Pretty Girl?
  13. Answering my own question, a freelancer from a disco on Soi Bangla asked for 2K. She was definitely worth it.
