Preßburg will become a suburb of the capital Vienna, then.

I am not against, but those from Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine wouldn't be very happy

Even though I heard from some Ukrainians on emigration in Poland that it's much better for them in Poland than in Ukraine.

By the way, it's interesting to notice that even just Lithuania, without Poland, was then one of the biggest countries in Europe, and now it is... one of the smallest ones.

Serbs in Bosnia use ijekavica as a standard and their kids learn it in school. So it is nothing wrong.

Macedonian is not mutual with BCSM (Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian-Montenegrin) or shares low mutuality, I don't know exactly but something like 20-30%. All four BCSM between languages are mutual by 90+% and they are standardized on a same dialect (Štokavski dijalekt).

About the second question, no I don't know any such example.
For example I was born in SFRY in Skopje, and in that time I had two citizenships, Yugoslav and SR Macedonian the latter was not state citizenship, but it was like that because my origin of my parents and grandparents is from this territory of the now dissolved SFRY.
So I could not get Bosnian or Serbian citizenship because I was not listed in their citizen books.
All of the six republics had their books of citizens and it was based on the fact of our origin. It was like that because SFRY was confederation and had separate republican organs and even borders although not physical.

if it was so obvious, why did Slovenian member of arbitrage council have to influence secretly the independent members of the council in July 2015?

Maybe, but the title of the movie is "Ko to tamo peva". Bosnian Serbs can "translate" it to their variant of Serbian, but I don't know why Slovenes would do that.

Because the judges probably had no idea on the matter.

The size of the storage and the price per unit have gone down dramatically.

Some time ago, I found an interesting document in my archive. In 1994, I held a position of kind of joint development, production and service manager at a governmental data center. In that year, I had placed an order to Hewlett-Packard for a 2 GB disk system with an enclosure. The price was about FIM 45,000, equalling to a present value of EUR 10,500. The box was quite small to the era, about half of a small fridge.

Thus, the cost of the disk space was 5.25 million EUR per a terabyte.

Currently, the retail price of a terabyte is about 45 EUR for consumer-class devices. Thus, the price per unit has improved by a factor of 116,000 within 23 years.

I remember my first Win 95 PC came with 1GB hard drive.
After a few year the HDD failed and replaced it with 10 GB.
Then by 2002 we bought a new Win XP machine, that came with 80 GB.
We asked the seller if 80 GB was enough.
He replied that that 80 GB is more than enough, saying that his own PC had only 20 GB, and he didn't manage to even fill half that space.

The machine also was my first with a DVD drive, so logically the first thing to do is rip DVD's. Then i discovered the hard way how much 80 GB really is.

My first PC fom 2000 had 10GB. It was a normal-size HD mounted inside the case. Still a huge improvement from the 2GB fridge-sized HD from just 6 years before.

My first PC was in 1996, a Pentium 120 MHz, 1.2 GB HDD, 8 MB RAM, 1 MB S3 Trio graphic card, no sound card (bought that a year later). Over the years we did a lot of upgrades
