I've got an error on TFS 2013 Upgrade 4, "T53001: The database operation was cancelled by an administrator". Most posts on-line refer to an issue with SQL 2014 and the fix was to apply CU4. As I am on SQL 2012 SP1 I've decided to have a go at installing SQL Server 2012 SP2.

Windows Server 2008 R2 comes with Internet Explorer 8, IE 8 is not working properly with the Microsoft site, namely the download button does show up, so I decided to upgrade from IE 8 to IE 11.

That failed because there are a number of patches need for IE 11 to work on Windows server 2008 R2, and IE 8 doesn't let me download them.

So decided to try to install IE 9 and then go up from there, but  IE 8 doesn't show the download button for IE 9, so can't download IE 9...

Installing Firefox instead, to be able to get SQL Server 2012 SP2 to try to fix the error on TFS. 

Another day in paradise!!!

Eventually fixed the TF53001 error by changing the account that was being used to run the SQL Server service to Local Service.

"Uselessness" turns out to be critically useful.

Turns out that the basic code of life has lots of parts that we don't see working - and that an onion has more parts to is DNA than we do. Thought: we're all actually just temporary expressions of genetic history, a history that does not discard adaptations so much as leave them out of executing code on a temporary basis. You never know when you may need them, after all. Kind of like history itself, you might say.
Biologists are feuding over the usefulness of our genetic material — and the fundamental sloppiness of life on earth.

"Why we can be certain that God doesn't exist".

An atheist statement from a Buddhist monk that would make many hardcore atheist blush.

The truth is, IMO, Buddhism is miles away from other religions and much closer to the non-religious. I find it much easier to engage on meaningful conversations with non believers than with believers.

Another piece of evidence that the climate, in Northern Europe, was as warm today as in the 8th century, and probably still as warm when the Vikings settled in Greenland on the 10th century.
 
Archaeologists working in Norway have found a 1,300 year-old ski with the binding and leather straps still attached. The discovery, made possible because of melting ice, shows that Vikings were able to move fast and steady on the snow. It's one of only 20 pre-modern skis to be found in Norway, and only the second with bindings (the other being from Finland).

Lovely theatre with loads of personality. Even though it is a copy of the original, one feels taken back in time to the XVI century.

The entrance is a delight with the moving engines that let us see how the modern world was shaped with steam power. The focus on engineering and machinery is a plus for any 6 years old boy, like my son.

Very happy with this practice, I take my two dogs to this clinic and one of them had a eye removed due to a cancer. 5 stars for staff friendliness both with owners and pets, very competent vets. Overall I give a 4 stars review as there is not much space in the observation area and is not open all day, although being open in the evening hours is quite helpful.

It is an Ikea store with cheap furniture, and cheap hot dogs.
