Wasn't it one of our F16s that hit a Ski gondola there about 10 years ago?
We need to be more careful...

Hey Doc, you can run multiple instances.
I've been doing that on Vista to help migrate accounts over to 2008.
(Technical Evangelism, not for my own accounts.)
You can color code your DBs in the 2008 MS, have another instance open and use query windows to copy and paste.
It's actually better than the old Query Analyzer with MS back and forth method, uses a lot less resources.

i'd hope people would get bored of islands shaped like a map, and towers that are tall, but not at all pretty, and move back to a city thats a bit more human.
Some of these new Japanese city concepts are intriguing.
For example, elevated outdoor areas with grass, trees, etc.
To re-think cities like Sao Paulo, Mexico City, New York...
How will we someday better occupy 14 million people into metro areas?
Good comparison.magicalclick said:brian.shapiro said:*snip*
No, LOL, it is not loud at all. There are barely anyone living there. Just a big empty city. You don't see many people or cars in those local shots.
Anyway, it is good of them to have such organized project. Las Vegas is a big mass. There is no grid. They just build whatever on that SINGLE street and you drive as slow as walking on many occations. But I hope they don't over did it. The proper way is like New York or Macow (spelling), you have a grid system, and let the people build whatever they want. All government does should be construction approval. Or like Irvine, build my a monolopy LOL, but it is super clean and serene, fake and yet super nice.
You know...Unless we re-boot the entire Human race we'll still have problems like this:

How would you like to live in a city where everything is new and built from the Ocean? That is Songdo, a city near Incheon, South Korea.
Songo, South Korea is considered the gateway to Southeast Asia. With its unique location that can be reached by 1/3 of the world’s population within a 2 hour flight. It is the epicenter for a new Asian financial district and residential city.
The Songdo International Business District (Songdo IBD) is a $30+ Billion master planned international city being developed on 1,500 acres of reclaimed land along the waterfront of Incheon, South Korea. When completed, the city will be home to 65,000 permanent residents with an additional 300,000 commuters, business travelers and visitors on a daily basis. The city will consist of approximately 50m sq.ft. of commercial space, 35m sq.ft. of residential use, and 15m sq.ft. for retail, hospitality, and school use, while 40% of the total area will be maintained as open space. With the strong commitment to environmental sustainability, as well as the amenities rarely seen in a city of this magnitude, the quality of life in the Songdo IBD will be unparalleled.
