Oh and. On the project I'm working on, 4 window types have proprietary lintels and Structural Engineer's fabricated steel lintels above them variously, depending on where they are. The former of any given window type have 10mm extra clearance and maybe should be built 10mm taller in consequence.

I can tell you lots more interesting stuff:
Drainage pop-ups anyone?


...anyone?

oh i see . indeed kotsen isn't very 'netjes', 'overgeven' is better, but i'd still not use it over the phone to GAK. than you'd better say you have 'buikgriep' ('ik heb buikgriep')

You donīt live close to the dutch border....i think !?!

Even though you donīt have to to understand this. I hope i donīt make a fool of myself as iīm probably not reading between your lines..!?!

Aber bei einer Krankmeldung sagst du doch auch nicht, dass du "kotzen" musstest ?
Eher "uebergeben", und wenn es ein wenig "offizieller" sein darf, auch "Bauchschmerzen" oder "Magen-Darm Probleme/ -Grippe" !?

So, auch wenn ich dir zutraue, dass du das ohne meine Hilfe wusstest, und dein Beitrag nur eine kleine..."Provokation" sein sollte, hoffe ich doch, vielleicht dem ein oder anderen weitergeholfen zu haben.

Gut, das waere vielleicht eher gelungen, wenn ich die letzten zwei Absaetze in Englisch geschrieben haette, aber jetzt mag ich nicht mehr

Yeah, don't worry about it

I like to make new word formations out of "acronyms" generally... in the "law" example, I simply made up three new words out of l-a-w.

Sometimes you have to let go... of yourself.
Sometimes you have to catch hold... of yourself.

The hardest part though, is knowing which way, and when.

Actually GAK is the old name for them, they have changed their name to UWV , perhaps this helps

It doesn't matter how much you study or many details you know about religion; the teacher is still going to ask that one question for the one thing you didn't study.

In SAS, "&" can end a comment in UNIX, but not in Windows.


data test;
/* this is a comment &
x = 1;
run;

proc print data= test;
run;


This code will work on UNIX but not Windows.
