    i have the coolest hack for Torchbearer in mind, but it basically involves designing a whole new game.

    Crownbearer
    It's basically sim-city within the Burning Wheel rules. You begin building an empire in the lands you conquered as an adventurer. Instead of earning conditions on an individual level, you earn them for your kingdom as a whole. Hungry and Thirsty means your people are Hungry. Sick means a plague of some kind is making its way across the land. You use Stonemason to build walls and castles, Pathfinder to for Roads. Survivalist to counter the effects of famine and drought, etc.

    Wasn't there actual ethnic cleansing in Kosovo?

    I got asked it for the first time in an interview a couple of weeks ago. Dude, I've been gainfully employed as a technical person/engineer since I graduating 14 years ago. Clearly I got just about all I needed to out of college.

    That said in hindsight I wish I had worked harder. Oh well, for the most part I've liked where I ended up career wise and any difference in my expected career level versus time out of school is due to the utterly untransferable experience of being a space shuttle flight controller for 5 years.

    oh my godddd will is a liar

    I hate celery

    I made a giant winter stew once with a ton of root veggies and the main one was celery root

    while I was cutting it I was like HMM THIS SURE DOES SMELL LIKE CELERY BUT

    shockingly when I tasted the stew it was full of celery flavored tuber

    FAK U WLIAM U R LYE

    i am disappoint skuppy

    if you cannot stand the flavor of celery then yes probably celery root isn't the smart tip

    turnips have actually slightly less calories than celery root so you could try those. they work about the same way

    same thing with carrots

    carrots slightly more, but still a lot less than potatoes

    potatoes are a fool's game

    parsnips are nearly up there with potatoes. probably all those central/ south american roots like yucca and cassava

    @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.

    and that is a skill level that is then much, much higher than even the unfortunate middle-management report-assembler

    Yeah.

    AAA of Southern California basically tried to do something like that, for similar reasons, by internally building a suite of proprietary programs.

    Good God, the project must have been managed by some executive's nephew, because they spent something like $60 million to develop a steaming pile.

    Of course then they had to exclusively use the pile because the executives who made the decision couldn't just admit they had wasted so much money.

    Yeah.

    It really does need to be farmed out to a developer... the funny thing is, this project sounds like maybe 8-10 hours of work for the coder, followed by some cut and paste data entry to bring the old values in... and would save literally hundreds if not thousands of hours every year, depending on how much data entry goes into those spreadsheets.

    Government is the blurst.

    School brought in a psychologist to talk to those of us who knew him. When my turn came up I went into the room.

    "So is there anything you want to talk about regarding what happened with Paul?"

    "No."

    same thing with carrots

    carrots slightly more, but still a lot less than potatoes

    potatoes are a fool's game

    parsnips are nearly up there with potatoes. probably all those central/ south american roots like yucca and cassava

    ITT Will negs the Irish.

    @Tav

    potatoes are actually native to peru

    somehow they became ireland's only national product besides ethnic strife and alcoholic depression between 1700 and 1800

    i have no idea what they ate before that time. probably turnips and peat moss.

    From the Middle Ages, until the arrival of the potato in the 16th century, the dominant feature of the rural economy was the herding of cattle. The meat produced was mostly the preserve of the gentry and nobility. The poor generally made do with milk, butter, cheese, and offal, supplemented with oats and barley. The practice of bleeding cattle and mixing the blood with milk and butter (similar to the practice of the Maasai) was not uncommon. Black pudding is made from blood, grain, (usually barley) and seasoning, and remains a breakfast staple food in Ireland.

    basically peat moss yeah
