@Michael: it's mainly a transit strike
Avatar 3:41pm David Dichelle:

Fred: It looks like the strike may be over in a week or so, at least according to the German news.

Hello Dutchtheo, I believe that is correct.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm doctorjazz:

Been spending my time ripping CD's and sending them to a friend (my buddy moved from a house to an apartment in Manhattan. He had worked in the music biz, and was a collector, and had about 10,000 CD's collected that wouldn't fit in smaller digs, so he ripped them to a unit that was "foolproof", "redundant", guaranteed to be secure and save his music in case of mishap. Of course, it failed, and he recovered some music, but lost much. He had donated the collection to WFMU. I'm trying to replace what I have, limited to digital, not my LP's). Anyway, ripped much Richard/Linda Thompson (separate and together), The Stones Mono box, The Microscopic Septet, a Reggae Beatles tribute box from Trojan, and Randy Newman's box collection, and Mosaic's complete Early Henry Threadgill box. Any interest in any of this, David (or any other poster out there?). My holiday present if anyone would like it.
Avatar 4:10pm Brian in UK:

Hey dutchtheo. really enjoyed Indonesian food when we were in Amsterdam, a while back, cannot find any over here, surprisingly.

@DD, Xmas, of course!
Avatar 4:16pm David Dichelle:

Doctorjazz: And a terrible shame, of course, now that I read your entire post.
Avatar 4:17pm David Dichelle:

Ah yes, well Germany tends to celebrate Christmas on the 24th, so no fireworks until next week at that time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm doctorjazz:

Heading into Manhattan in a short while, take the show in the car (some Christmas for the Jews entertainment...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm dutchtheo:

I should of course have written a (silver) dime for the train. Yes BrianinUK, indonesian is one of my favs, but in the UK you have great Indian food, even better!
Avatar 4:18pm David Dichelle:

Thanks, Doctorjazz, looking forward to the ride.
Avatar 4:29pm Brian in UK:

dutchtheo, most Indian restaurants over here make a gloopy sauce then either chicken, beef or prawns are added. Really like Sri Lankan and South Indian. Masala Dosas do the job.
Avatar 4:34pm Brian in UK:

Got to hang up my stocking and prepare myself for the coming. Happy days everyone.
Avatar 4:34pm David Dichelle:

No Indonesian restaurants locally here, at least that I know of.

Rostok -> Leipzig -> Ehrfurt -> Kassel (on my way)

Eisenach is worth a look as well, if you're headed that way.

Funny you should say that, David, that's exactly what we're doing, waiting to get into the Holland Tunnel...

So many virtual voyages tonight - and your real one, Doctorjazz. Hope the traffic isn't too terrible.

my pleasure, David! it's not bad for how inexpensive it is. and has a huge community
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm fred:

I think I'll call it a day soon. As for the strike, it's not just transit, the Paris opera ballet dancers are also on strike. Today they retire at 42, the government's plan is to push that back to 64. No way no how in ballet, 42 is already a big stretch (plus, they start the opera dance school at 8 or so)
Avatar 5:43pm David Dichelle:

Fred - that is crazy - they showed the ballet dancers on the news here today but didn't really mention why.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm chresti:

David, blindingly so!
Avatar 5:44pm David Dichelle:

Spodiodi: Does the program show things inside the cities as well?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm fred:

Yeah, I read that they performed part of Swan Lake in front of the old opera house
Avatar 5:47pm David Dichelle:

I guess they'll have 1-to-1 teachers and dancers in the future.
  5:48pm spodiodi:

not very much detail -- some things like bridges and some gerneric-ish buildings. the occasional castle or whatever (i doubt there's much accuracy beyond things like rivers and major roads -- and you can't really explore off the map roads.)
Avatar 5:48pm David Dichelle:

Fred: or at least one would hope that is at least an option if it happens.
  5:50pm spodiodi:

the scale overall scale is much smaller overall, for space and time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm fred:

Ha! As if increasing teacher positions (or pay) was in Macron's plans.
Avatar 5:52pm David Dichelle:

Fred: I suppose that was crazy optimism.
