I *used to* think I was proficient in Excel. After watching that, not so much.

2. Pupster - October 27, 2008

Holy crap. Don’t let Enas Yorl see that. He’s a professional spread-sheeter, and he may sheet himself.

3. Retired Geezer - October 27, 2008

Here’s a funny video for all the gun owners in the crowd.

4. Cathy - October 27, 2008

EXCEL-lent!

5. Mrs. Peel - October 27, 2008

Ok, that was awesome. But I still have to say that some people apparently have too much time on their hands.

6. Sobek - October 27, 2008

You guys really raised the bar since letting me in.

7. Cathy - October 27, 2008

Here’s a funny video for all the gun owners in the crowd.

ooops!

8. Sobek - October 27, 2008

I believe the gun vid was debunked as a fake (sorry, Geezer). Still kinda funny.

9. Mare - October 27, 2008

The comments are as clever as the video. Well, close.

10. Wickedpinto - October 27, 2008

I don’t own a gun, cuz that video would have been real, of course, I would have destroyed the video later.

11. Wickedpinto - October 27, 2008

As for the actual post, I say, all the time, that whenever I see “word excell and blahbity blahbity blahbity blah” in an ad, or hear it in a question, I really don’t know what the people are talking about.

“Proficient in Access.” What does that mean?

Really? Just what does that mean? MS has VB all over the place, you can’t be “proficient” in any of MS’s app’s without being good at VB, which requires a programing mindset.

I told the story about how my PltComm, a BRILLIANT man had me set up a DB, which I did.

I did it all using the pointy clicky. He said that it would be too slow, so he told me to learn VB, then he made me apply the DB to other shit, and I was like “DUDE? can I solder something?”

where’s Geoff? This is more his speed. But it needs more charts…

13. Enas Yorl - October 28, 2008

That was pretty cool – except for the ACDC song.

14. geoff - October 28, 2008

where’s Geoff? This is more his speed. But it needs more charts…

I’m a little overwhelmed at the moment. Just spent a weekend back home where the low point was spending Saturday night in the emergency room with my dad. Flew back to CA today. My daughter comes to visit on Thursday, which is cool, but doesn’t really help with the overwhelmed issue.

Someday I’ll get things back to normal. In the meantime, I’m enjoying lurking at all my usual haunts.

15. Wickedpinto - October 28, 2008

Geoff? don’t you live by cranky?

16. geoff - October 28, 2008

No – I normally live in CO.

17. Wickedpinto - October 28, 2008

need to find someone who can check up on cranky.

PA is the nearest off the top of my head.

Hope old boy is okay.

18. Wickedpinto - October 28, 2008

NO! ND is closer, need to recruit ND to check up on Cranky.

19. PattyAnn - October 28, 2008

WP, I’m checking his blog and I sent him email. If I hear or see anything, I’ll post it far and broad.

20. geoff - October 28, 2008

I thought Cranky lived in Alabama.

21. Wickedpinto - October 28, 2008

Am I thinking grumpy?

22. eddiebear - October 28, 2008

Geoff:

Hope everything is Ok with your dad

23. Cathy - October 28, 2008

Geoff — How is your dad? Sorry to hear you and HE ended up in the ER.

24. Mark in NJ - October 28, 2008

Hey Geoff – really sorry to hear about your dad — I hope everything is OK.

And I hope you can manage to have some fun w/ the wee girl in CA.

25. geoff - October 28, 2008

Looks like things are OK, though he’s still in the hospital.

26. Cathy - October 28, 2008

Hope he gets out soon, Geoff. Take care and say hi to Mrs. Geoff for me.

27. skinbad - October 28, 2008

Good wishes, Geoff.

Innocent Bystanders is a semi-popular hangout blog

ummm…hate to be pedantic, but when I was blindfolded, paddled, and forced to wear Wizard Of Oz garb as part of my hazing here at IB, I was reminded that it’s a commenting site, not a blog.

Hell, that Batman guy who is waaayyy too happy to detail what goes on in that creepy shower of his reminded all of us of that fact.

29. Mrs Peel - October 28, 2008

geoff – sorry to hear about your dad. Hospitals are no fun. I hope he recovers soon.

eddie – forced to wear Wizard Of Oz garb

So that was you!

30. eddiebear - October 28, 2008

^meh. At least it was the Tin Man, and not Dorothy

31. skinbad - October 28, 2008

I can break the rules a little bit. I made partner last year. I’m safe unless everyone gets pissed at Mitt Romney and votes me out.

32. eddiebear - October 28, 2008

^oh. I see.
