That's an impressive piece of gear. All the more amazing that they were built close to budget.

The current forecast has it pretty well clear by Sunday, as I understand it, and a hit on Taiwan is still officially only a 50% probability at best.

A near miss will take out power lines, possibly knock trees down on runways or merely cause some flights to be delayed or rerouted. Why not entirely avoid the risk and change your flight plan now?


Plus Thailand is amazing. Just live there.

Sorry if that was confusing. I meant that he should just live there. My wife and I spent three weeks there for our honeymoon. It's an absolutely incredible place. The people are friendly and helpful everywhere, the food is great, and most of it is beautiful. We traveled all over, and I think the only place I wouldn't go back to was Bangkok.

We also spent a few days in Cambodia, and it seemed great, too. They're still recovering from the genocide, so it was pretty unique experience meeting and talking to so many of the people.

Thailand is nice, but honestly I've enjoyed it less than Indonesia, Malaysia, and even really Taiwan. That's not to say it hasn't been great being here, but I feel like there is more genuine friendliness (rather than tourism and hospitality friendliness) in other places I've visited. Also, there are too many foreigners here (both permanent residents and tourists). It's been hard to feel like I was actually seeing the real place and having genuine experiences here.

Clearly you don't fly discount carriers... :P

It is looking like it will be a hit over northern Taiwan. However, it is down to Category 3 (from Cat 5). It's also still speeding up, and by the time I fly it should be way out over mainland China.

I could end up delayed or cancelled, but I can work it out if I do. Keep in mind typhoons hitting Taiwan are pretty frequent occurrences. The locals know how to roll with it.

From here. German page I reached from Bethesda Blog. Guess if it was translated it could confirm the legitimacy.

i can't imagine the demand for those old games would be sufficient to justify porting them to modern systems
