Fire at WIPO/OMPI

Re: Fire at WIPO/OMPI

No reports of injuries -- main building has been evacuated- I guess this was pretty heavy smoke coming out of one of the subbasements


Where did you work doc?

I was wondering where Mr. Grynch was today when I remembered this thread. What did people do before the internet to waste time at work?

Re: Fire at WIPO/OMPI

Damn! That's why I couldn't file an application for my super magic porridge pot yesterday. It would have totally eradicated world hunger and the global concrete shortage.

I forgot how I did it now though.
