    Anybody watching this Bates Motel shit?

    It's not exactly GOOD, but I'm oddly mesmerized.

    That's kinda the vibe i get from it.

    Like, not enjoyable, but more a nauseating trainwreck in slow motion.

    The foregone conclusion, that leads up to Psycho, give it a kind of absurd ultra-bleakness that isn't quite established by the tone of the show, which almost has a casual approach to its own obscenity.

    It's very... strange. It's strange.

    i ordered a t-shirt from a small record label

    they sent me the wrong size

    emailed them and after two weeks they said they'd send me out the right size and a prepaid envelope to sent back the wrong sized one

    yeah they only send me out the shirt

    going to email them and ask what's up, but i ain't paying out of pocket to send this thing back

    u should try them.

    they aren't exactly like potato - they are a little more fibrous and have a sharp celery flavor when raw that fades to kind of a sweetness with a hint of celery when cooked. a little like, say, a turnip maybe.

    they seriously have very little calories tho. i know that you have scurvy to save you from weight gain, but they're a real smart tip for the rest of us and are quite tasty.

    I never put it on my resume yet it came up in every interview I did. Most of the time I was chided afterwards for not putting it on my resume since it was "a big deal" to them and could have hurt my chances had it not come up in the interview.

    Please consider the environment before printing this post.

    @Ludious I will go a step further:

    I am assuming the person made some spreadsheet templates and starts a new spreadsheet for each unit of work, be it a client or a contract or whatever. Probably drops that spreadsheet in is own folder on the public drive or in sharepoint.

    Pro tier would be making a table that is the top level unit (client, contract), and have one row for what used to represent each spreadsheet. Put whatever important information that is that top level as a column on this table (who is responsible for the unit of work, project start date, client contact info, etc). And most importantly, set up an AutoNumber field, right click it and say "Primary Key"

    Now, make a new table, that used to represent the rows of each individual spreadsheet. The only difference being that the first column should be called unitID or clientID or projectID, and should be a number field. then put every other column from the old spreadsheets here.

    Now, set up a form for the top level table, and put a few clients/unit in there.

    Now, set up a form for the row-based data, and make the unitID field a dropdown/autocomplete field that has to match an entry from the top level table. You have now "related" the data to the client, which will allow you to have two tables that does the lifting for an infinite number of spreadsheets in the old system.

    Whenever you want a classic "client" spreadsheet, you can go into queries, link the two tables by unitID, and drag the fields you are interested in to the bottom area, with the unitID number as the filter by option in the unitID field.

    bethryn is right

    the perverse reality is that the skill level of data entry peons is much, much lower than the skill level of People Charged With Assembling Key Reports, so it is easier to ask the latter to adapt than the former

    I get that.

    Which is why, for an incredibly small investment, someone could build a quick and dirty user interface over what I just described, drop the data side (mdb) on the server, and make a pretty little icon that the end user clicks on their desktop (an MDE file) that just acts as the client for data entry.

    You could even make the damn thing look and act like the excel spreadsheet they are used to, only you select your client / unit before going into the spreadsheet as opposed to navigating to the file.

    Like, it could be so much simpler for everyone at all levels.

    So they're celery

    i mean i guess so? they're the root bulb of a specially-bred celery cultivar.

    their advantage is that they have the structure and mouthfeel and flavor and culinary properties of a starchy root vegetable but almost no actual starch.

    We pretty much overwrote the entire roster with our creations, too... left a few but it was our federation by the time it was over.

    Those games were the best party games ever.

    it really only matters for your first job fresh out of college.

    After that seriously nobody gives a fuck and if you are still referencing and highlighting your GPA on your CV 10 years later they are going to look at you funny.

    for new college grad hires it's considered. i don't think after a job or two anyone pays much attention.

    i guess having something like "summa cum laude" or so forth probably could stick around on a resume for a while.

    Obviously my view is a bit skewed since I was looking at graduate positions, but there's a lot of places here that require a certain GPA to even get into the interview process.

    Evidently it used to be a premium vacation resort for Russians.

    All that I had known, historically, was that Crimean horse lords had rampaged wherever they liked up until guns started to matter more than horses.
