I was surprised about that detail about scoop jackson, since he was the closest parallel to gaitskell, across the pond, one wonders if the
source was someone other then a campaign hack,

No clarice; I want all the GOP apologists to admit that the clean toga bunch they slavishly support are just as corrupt as the commiecrats. And have sold out the country.

It's not just Hillary's national security e-mails. The FBI is also looking at payoffs through the Foundation. Trump has bragged about making payments to her to benefit his business, selling out Republicans just to line his own pockets. He needs to come clean about what exactly he paid Hillary for.

yes and it's a long cast of international character, princes, oligarch and magnates, there's a reason I use the spectre shorthand,

MM-So its justifiable for Trump to object to picture of his wife but ok for him to post objectable picture of Heidi Cruz, not to mention his emphasis on a woman's looks instead of her brain.

Good analysis

As the old saying goes, it is a bad idea to mud wrestle with a pig. You will both get dirty, but the pig will enjoy it.

One more to cap off the evening.

Theo

For March Madness fans out there, three of the four number one seeds have made it to the Elite Eight and the fourth is very likely (96%) at this moment to also do so. How rare is that? It thus seems not at all far fetched that the Final Four will be made up of exclusively number 1 seeds. Has that ever happened before?

Would really make the selection committee look good.

Lurker Susie

Maybe just maybe the establishment is leaking this story. Let's go Mitt or Paul Ryan.

narciso

also from bond, in from russia with love, spectre sets off a rivalry between the russians who used bulgars, and the turks who use gypsies as their proxies,

Theo

narciso --

What a memory you have! Was that the book or the movie? I read the book probably 50 years ago and saw the movie not many fewer years than that ago. All I remember is "death....with ignominy."

narciso

both, I think I read it in one of those old paperbacks in between showings,

Porchlight

That first link was just gorgeous, Buckeye! My oldest plays cello, but that cellist looks so much like my younger daughter. Loved the way it was filmed.

narciso

just like with uris's topaz, that hitchcock horribly adapted in 1969, among other facepalms, they made the future dean wormer, some cuban factotum,

Theo

I liked the earlier, Cold War Bond where the enemy was the Russian government better than I liked the latter Bond where the enemy was some madman with some fantastic plot to take over the world. Goldfinger was sort of okay in that his fantastic plot was only to rob Fort Knox, not take over the world.

narciso

yes, they became parodies of themselves, specially under roger moore, for example, the original moonraker plot, involved a nazi sleeper agent who tried to launch a rocket at london, the man from uncle film borrowed a good deal from that story,

narciso

the problem with the newer villains is they don't have any grand ambition, silva was some sort of portuguese version of assange, greene wanted to steal bolivia's water, oberhauser, wanted a global panopticon but then it got sketchy,

Buckeye

Porchlight

I played cello, but never that well.

Stephanie

Henry, Maryd or any IT people around...

Any idea what this means?

- currently the import works based on the indexes of the columns, not names.

Also, very probable that it could take a really long time to actually RENAME lots of the DB fields. In fact, it could be easier to create DB from scratch and change the mapping than. Do you really think it should be done? Or, perhaps, some mapping for the client would be enough (in fact - what you've created by this document)?


I've never heard of importing based on indexing much less a 'really long time' to rename some DB fields.

I do know that they wrote this using something called "One Code" which I've not heard of before.

As a data analyst, I'm not familiar enough with developer stuff to know what or why renaming some data fields would be such a big deal. I've created and done some Dbase design stuff from scratch even with my limited developer skills (but in Oracle not Sql Server), and this just gobsmacked me.

These Ukrainians have me stumped...

Any help is greatly appreciated. If you want to take this offline, email is stephaniegaatl@yahoo.com.

Theo

I was talking about the books, which I barely remember. The movies were cartoons as far as I could tell and not interesting ones at that in my opinion.

I read the books as a teenager. I so wanted to be James Bond. As far as I could tell, he would meet some hot looking woman and, invariably, without any effort or courtship or learning about her family or hearing about her hopes and dreams for the future and without the slightest need to indicate that he was interested in any long term relationship with her or put up with any craziness or rhymes with "ditchy" behavior, she would eagerly go to bed with him.

It took me a long time to learn that it does not work that way. At least it did not for me.

narciso

fleming based his characters on a number of shady folk, like dusko popov, the yugoslav double agent
who gambled by night, and gathered the evidence for
the sneak attack on pearl harbor, through details like italian tests in the med,

I understand that Fleming wanted David Niven to play Bond in the movies. Not exactly the image that I had from the books. Suave and sophisticated to be sure, but neither a man of action or a ladies' man in my estimation.

I first saw Dr. No when it first ran in the theaters. I remember seeing it again like 20 years ago and being astonished at how godawful BAD a movie it was.

Destiny Ignatz

Do you look like Sean Connery? :)

narciso

what exactly were they trying to do, or more correctly, hide,

https://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/1122/how-to-rename-a-sql-server-database/

well they should have started with casino royale,
because it set the template, instead they went almost blind, anthony horowitz, borrowed elements from dr no and moonraker for his take,

Theo

Destiny --

That might have something to do with it.

Destiny Ignatz

They were all pretty bad movies, IMO.
Goldfinger was entertaining.
Jill St John was quite charming although an abysmal actress.
Ursula and Honor were quite fetching as well.

On Her Majesty's Secret Service to me was probably the best flick. George Lazenby was just cloddish enough not to be an improbable cartoon like Connery.
OTOH, Mrs Iggy was happy to watch any flick with Sean. :)

Stephanie

I have all of the Fleming books in their initial prints from the 50s/60s releases. Pages are yellow and the paperback binders are coming apart, but they were passed down through the family, and I have them somewhere at moms in the basement. The covers are, I believe the original artwork that was done for the release of each book. No first editions, I don't think, but then they are the paperback editions.

Theo

The Bond movies had like zero faithfulness to the plots of the books. The only thing that they took from the book was the character and some of the names of the villains and girls. But I suspect that the plots were not worth keeping. The character has endured.

narciso

there was some, like dr, no, that followed the plot, goldfinger got very hightech, as did live twice and diamonds, which ended up a satire on howard hughes vs. blofeld

Theo

I sort of liked Goldfinger. The villain was interesting and not a total cartoon. But I have not seen it in decades and I probably remember it better than it was.

I do not recall the movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service, but most people think Lazenby was justifiably dumped from the role after that one try.

I recall the book On Her Majesty's Secret Service a bit better. The one sex scene was the most unrealistic of all. He arranges to slip into a young woman's (carefully guarded) room at night for some ostensible non sexual purpose. When he gets into the room, he takes all his clothes and then slips into bed where she is already naked waiting for him.

Maybe if I looked like Sean Connery that sort of stuff would happen to me more often.

GUS

Rodham was CO-PRESIDENT for 8 years. Remember?
She therefore, was impeached twice?? Right??
Wouldn't she have been "Privy" to the SECRETS of AREA 51 during that time??

Logic. It's your friend.

JM Hanes

LOL Theo & Ignatz

narciso

of course, spectre, prefigured this brave new world, where national allegiances, are negotiable,
len deighton tried to show the very pedestrian world of intelligence gathering in his harry palmer series, and that wasn't as appealing,

narciso

ad for forsyth, one now he's all his work through the prism of MI-6, where did seem remarkably well informed,

Destiny Ignatz

--I do not recall the movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service, but most people think Lazenby was justifiably dumped from the role after that one try.--

That's what I liked about it. It resulted in more of an actual story rather than super-penis and those minor satellites in his orbit.
Plus Diana Rigg was marvelous.

narciso

well as he tells it, he bluffed his way into the role, then settled in to the world that austin powers satirizes, of the late 60s, wouldn't promote the film, but the ending is quite something,

Destiny Ignatz

My daughter texted me a joke;

What's black and screaming?

That is a ripoff of a Helen Keller joke, Ig.

So its justifiable for Trump to object to picture of his wife but ok for him to post objectable picture of Heidi Cruz, 

Come Monday I will explain it all. For now? Easter.

GUS

TK, pictures of Trumps' wife, made Trumps wife plenty of money. Her pictures were PUBLISHED as part of her career. No not her ca-REAR.
Heidi Cruz, has never claimed to be a sexpot, nor has Heidi Cruz ever SOLD PICTURES or herself to the MEDIA for CASH.
I get this deal entirely. Trump CLUBS anyone who crosses him.
Happy Easter brother Tk. I'm going to MASS tomorrow eve, with Mrs Gus and Jr. I look forward to a delicious HAM on Sunday.

Destiny Ignatz

Helen Keller was black?

Threadkiller

LOL!!

GUS

Helen Keller was black so far as she knew.

Threadkiller

You are right, Gus. Trump's wife's photos were never meant to be weaponzied. Cruz's high dollar supporters went for it and paid the price.

I wish to not address Cruz's failings until Monday though. I made a promise.

Happy Easter!

GUS

Up next Caitlyn Jenner is black.

Gentlejim

GUS,
At least she had a couple reasons to identify incorrectly.

GUS

Weaponized??? Do you think any Candidate in American History who had a wife who did "candid" photography for PUBLIC consumption, would not have had those Photographs made public??????
Good lord.

GUS

Hey TK!! If CRUZ is in any way GUILTY of what TRUMPS peeeps have suggested, and put to print.
Cruz deserves to suffer consequences or should have to explain himself. If CRUZ is NOT a philandering ne'er do well. We've entered a NEXT LEVEL of HELL in this country.

GUS

Hello Gentlejim. Gosh it's good to see you.
You're a decent man.

Destiny Ignatz

I have an idea. After Easter, how bout if we still don't discuss Trump and Cruz's wifely squabble, or the NE story, unless it's substantiated.

Gentlejim

Hey GUS,
I try my best. I've enjoyed all the "redacted for lent" posts.

GUS

One thing that strikes me about the National Enquirer story, and OBVIOUSLY the involvement of TRUMP surrogates, is KATRINA PIERSON'S alleged involvement with CRUZ.
Ms Pierson, is a Trump spokesman/person. She is EXTREMELY bright and is quite impressive on her feet and in verbal combat. What gives? She's been slimed.

Threadkiller

Nice try, Gus. I made pledge.

Monday, I respond.

GUS

Gentlejim, I've enjoyed the REDACTED thing. It has been some of my best work, and it caught on with many of our fellow friends here at JOM.
You're awesome friend, and I love seeing your stuff on JOM.

Destiny Ignatz

This doesn't help the NE's credibility;
National Enquirer says Scalia murdered by CIA hired hooker.

GUS

No problem TK. I wasn't trying to break you vow!!
God Bless you TK. Have a great EASTER.

GUS

Good idea Ignatz. I'm sick to my guts of this nonsense.

Destiny Ignatz

Remembering Johann Cruyff.

Gentlejim

Thanks GUS.
Have a great Easter.

Destiny Ignatz

Thomas Sowell wonders whether Barry is a socialist or fascist.
He leans toward the F word.

GUS

Ignatz, I don't know that Obama can be pigeon holed and clinically called FASCIST/COMMIE/MARXIST or any other term. Obama was raised by a COMMIE MOMMY, and his GRANDPARENTS were DEVOUT COMMIE/MARXISTS. Obama is a SHYTE STEW of LEFTIST DYSFUNCTION.
Wow, I think that was a pretty good description of OBAMA'S effed (redacted for a couple more days)
up PSYCHOSIS.
Regardless of what terminology we attribute to this effed up loser. He is a HYBRID and the most DESTRUCTIVE FORCE/PERSON in American History.

GUS

Ignatz, imagine Bernie Sanders was a black man.
Holy crap.

Thanks, Momto2, for the tips on the Resurrection Rolls.

Buckeye, my daughter plays cello. Let's just say I wouldn't call her a cellist. :)

anonamom

porch, you are too young to have insomnia!

(Maybe you aren't. Number one perimenopausal symptom--as in 100% among the hundred plus women I've worked with and discussed it with over the years--but unrecognized by OB/Gyns. Really the only thing I experienced.)

Free James D!

Re: James Bond

The first four movies are close(ish) to the plots of the books - Dr. no, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger & Thunderball. On Her Majesty's Secret Service is as well. None of the others are, at all.

Goldfinger is the best of the Connery films, by far.

OHMSS is great despite Lazenby, and would have been the best without question had Connery been in it.

The Moore films were silly, generally, but still fun. And he could play serious when the material was there.

Jack is Back (on His iPhone)

Good morning. When 3 beagles have to go, you wake up real quick.

According to Mrs. JiB, John Kerry has made a fist of it during his tour of Brussels Airport in Zaventam. He remarked "Je Suis Bruxelles". Zaventam is in Flanders and he should have said "Ik Ben Brussels". Among the Flemings he is a laughing stock. Smart diplomacy.

Jack is Back (on His iPhone)

Also, a security officer at one of the Belgian nukes was found dead and his access badge missing. Developing.

Free James D!

Among the Flemingssentient human beings he is a laughing stock.

Fixed it for you.

Jack is Back!ll

Thanks, JamesD, good fix:)

The nuclear plant security officer was killed in Charleroi while out walking his dog. His pass has been deleted off the security system but it is still troubling to the Belgian counter-terror folks.

Looks like the American brother and sister were actually Dutch living in America. That Mormon missionary kid is some tough dude. Giving interviews from his hospital bed in Ghent wrapped head to toe in surgical dressings.

Zaventam will not open until Tuesday at the earliest.

cheerleader

Miss Marple, there is post at CTH with a video proving that the Cruz campaign knowingly approved of attacking Melania. Cruz said he had nothing to do with the ad, and when it ran, he didn't condemn it. After that, to do unto others has he'd had done to him, Trump retweeted a horrible picture of Heidi that someone tweeted to him. Cruz went ballistic about it, calling Trump a coward etc. etc. Attack ads that ran for days versus one retweeted picture. I don't understand where Cruz's double standards are coming from.

Miss Marple 2

Good morning!

Cheerleader, I guess they think this righteous indignation is a winner attitude for him.

Since it's Easter weekend, I am not going to comment much on this, and probably won't unless there is other news out of the NE investigation. I think all of the speculation is pointless since it's all based on what each of us thinks of the two men. We don't have facts, so I will just wait to see what happens.

Will Mrs. JiB and Frederick take the train back to Schiphol for the return?

henry

I do know that they wrote this using something called "One Code" which I've not heard of before.

That part I understand. Code generators often use indexed file / field names internally for all processing, with the idea that no human will edit the code except through the sdk. Thus the option to use sensible names that users never found (this tool may not have that option, it is not the one I managed). In that case the tool set a mapping from sensible to indexed internal names and made indecipherable code anyway -- but the users had a db they could query.

Without a remap option internal to the tool, field renames won't happen. Users are stuck with a remap index to get anything. (The you get what you pay for thing).

On using column indexes instead of named ranges for imports... That too sounds very 1985. If you remind me Monday, I'll ask my import bot guy for helpful references.

henry

Ig, thanks for the Cruyff link.

Maibach, the wrong horse.

Shukla, first signer on the RICO 20 letter, illustrates the arrogance of the consensus alarmists. Maibach, second signer of the RICO 20 letter, has just published a push poll of American meteorologists, using your tax dollars to further propagandize us about climate.

Judy's got the skinny.

Jack is Back!ll

Buckeye,

Haven't decided yet whether to come back from Zaventam or Schipol. They don't come back until the 2nd of April. So plenty of time to see how it goes in Brussels.

Lots of hand-wringing in Belgium. People are pissed.

clarice

Well, they should be--turns out Turkey warned Belgian authorities about the three bombers ahead of time.

Slowly but surely europeans are coming to the realization they have been sold down the PC river. I don't blame them for being pissed.

The Belgians and French in particular have an overwhelmingly nasty infection.
