When you look at the map to see who is at war with whom, I can see why!
I find it easy to forget how huge Ukraine is too
Thinking about it, it's what we've already had since 2014, which was when the war actually began. Only at that time it was much less prominent and covered less area, hence the sense of normality was easier to maintain. Even here in Ukraine, many lived as though nothing was happening. "Yeah, we have some conflict in the eastern part, yeah, Russia's annexed Crimea, but other than that everything's fine, nothing to worry about." I have to admit that was very close to my way of thinking during those years. Partly the reason was that the conflict wasn't officially called a war, it was just an anti-terrorist operation. But for the people in Donbas it was as much an actual war as it's been for everyone since February 24th. Even so, most of Ukraine isn't occupied or near the front lines, so life must go on (as much as possible, yes).
It's odd thinking about normal things going on during the war but of course they just have to I guess, as much as possible.
No idea, but it's possible that some might be. A new academic year has recently begun, after all.
Are lots of Ukrainians learning SQL right now? Seems unlikely but db<>fiddle has had 16k variations of https://dbfiddle.uk/vJq1ro34 run in the last week, which makes me curious.
Cool, thanks @Paul
should be fixed now Paul, though there is a chance other things got broken in the process (as all the engines have been rebuilt from scratch)
Just for you @ypercubeᵀᴹ : https://dbfiddle.uk/?rdbms=postgres_15 :)
thanks Paul, I will look into that
Also the AdventureWorks sample database on SQL Server 2019 instances of db<>fiddle seems to be broken
Would really like to just reach out and hug you or shake your hand. You hang on tight there, mate
Wow, I had no idea you were from Ukraine as well. And from Kharkiv no less. I was scared witless just hearing explosions *near* our city. What you must be going through, I can't even imagine.

Yep. I have no doubt that every sensible person in the world who knows about what's happening here does. Thanks Paul.
Ha ha I can imagine yes. Glad to hear you are personally ok and retaining your sense of humour
One surprising positive thing that came of our situation is that people seem to have stopped talking so much about Covid. I was starting to grow quite sick of it, honestly
