Sorry no Excel posts lately. I thought I’d give you a quick update on what’s happening.
The Texas trip was canceled due to Hurricane Ike. If I had flown Frontier I could change my ticket for nothing. Instead, American Airlines is going to charge me $175. I honestly don’t know how these people sleep at night.
Stackoverflow opened its public beta last week. I’ve been following the Excel and VBA tags on RSS. I’m not sold on the site, but I want to try it for a while. I’m an NNTP guy and never really found web forums to be all that productive. And now that I barely post on NNTP, I don’t know what kind of guy I am. Just another lazy blogger I guess.
The Excel User Conference started today. I’ll be looking forward to reading some blog posts about that. Speaking of training, don’t forget about Excel Dashboard and Visualization Bootcamp. There’s about a 75% chance that I’ll be there and I’ll know for sure by next week. So if you go, be sure to say “Hi”.
Here’s a tip: Get the same laptop at work that you have at home. I liked my D810 so much that when I started a new job I got a virtually identical machine. Now that my personal D810 is at Dell getting fixed, I can use my work laptop by just swapping hard drives. Oh, it’s not convenient. But it’s better than being without or even trying to get by on an old desktop I have laying around. To the extent that I’m able to, I think I’ll always use the same computer at work and home.
