I'm a database developer. T-sql and anything to do with Data Warehouses or the Microsoft BI stack are my thing(SSRS/SSAS/SSIS).


I'm in ops but I work with our BI/A team a lot and t-sql is my bread & butter! SSRS yes, SSAS/SSIS not so much. I'm not into the warehousing part as I am a first responder to production fires and don't do much in terms of administration/warehousing, but it's interesting stuff to read about at least

One of my good buddies speaks English, French, Spanish, and Haitian Creole. If you need a word translated I can get some help

Wow. I'm not personally looking as I'm not working with the language but it's fun to read the Creole words used in this paper and seeing the origins in French. Still pretty impressive.

The job's just English to French and I'm co-translating with a native French speaker who also speaks Creole, though she's in another part of the country so we're doing it by correspondence. I should probably get a degree in translation so I can get a legit job doing it.

100 years, have you considered getting jobs that aren't legit? Like being a translator for a bank robber or serial killer?

I have! It's just I don't have the right contacts outside of academia. Also I need to set-up a dummy corporation apparently for some higher end jobs and I think that might just put my status as a foreigner in jeopardy even if having an American passport is like Wonka's Golden Ticket over here.

100 years have you considered becoming a spooky ghost that haunts abandoned buildings in small villages? I think you'd be a good fit for that sort of role.

I like the way coke tastes when you drink it out of a coffee cup you just used. It cuts just a bit of the sweetness.

at least we all agree that whether with or without coffee, coke tastes better than pepsi, which is a garbage drink.

I agree except for the cherry variety. Wild Cherry Pepsi beats out Cherry Coke by an enormous margin.

I've been drinking the occasional diet soda since I cut soda out of my diet nearly entirely, trying to lose weight.

Instead I just ending up eating more normal food.

Eating is just my thing I guess.

No I haven't. I wonder why you think I could. I would ideally die at sea and consequently haunt ships that pass through that patch of ocean OR divers who find the wreck OR the port I left from.

You know, I didn't even consider the possibility of you as a Sea Ghost (or Sehost) .

I bet you'd look positively stunning drapped in seaweed with half of your face bloated from rotting underwater.

You kill yourself after a failed relationship, work through several levels of unpleasant purgatory-style afterlife, then exclusively haunt single people. You never really know whether you're trying to steer them away from the pain of love, or whether you're trying to pick them up.
