My daughter; Emma Goodman was on Real Radio last weekend.
I have removed the mp3 of her appearance as the size of it has exceeded my sites bandwidth allowance. If you woul like a copy, pleas contact me and I will send it to you.
As you may have read in a previous post here the company I work for was sold by Glen Group to Maxima at the beginning of the year.
As I had shares in Eclectic, these were transferred into Glen Group shares. Unfortunately, as the purchase was a cash deal, I did not get Maxima shares but am left with Glen shares. As such I still get copies of the annual financial statement. Imagine my surprise to read on the front page.
Eclectic was the biggest company in the group and sat at the heart of the business in terms of turnover and profit. However, Eclectic performed below expectations, particularly in the second half, and when the opportuity arose we elected to dispose of Eclectic and inGroup and completed the sale in early January 2008.
Nothing “too” bad there.
I rarely “surf” to random sites any more, any site that wants my attention must have an RSS feed that I can put into Google Reader.
I am intrigued by the social networking sites, a few are listed here. LinkedIn is one that I can see the point of.
LinkedIn have recently introduced an RSS feed for my network updates, so it ticks both boxes. What’s the downside? I’m not sure what it is. It could be that LinkedIn is a work/professional focussed network rather than personal. It could be the immediacy of the updates from my colleagues. It’s strange but I feel crossed between a stalker and a voyeur in a way that I just don’t get from feeds from other sites.
I have found myself using Google Documents more and more over the last few months.
One of the areas that was severely lacking was the ability to share parts of that content.
That is all changed now with Google Gadgets.
For example, for my training I had resorted to n HTML table on my training page http://www.rossgoodman.com/fundraising/training/ whilst not difficult it is not exactly elegant.
Now I am recording my times in a Google spreadsheet and using two gadgets, one to show a tabular list if the data and another to show an interactive time series chart, the same as is used on google finance.
Cool Huh !
A while back my daughter; Emma Goodman, was interviewed by a researcher from The Press Association who was interested in her story.
She has just called to say that Emma will be featured in the Spring Special edition of the Pick Me Up magazine that goes on sale this Friday.
I have just picked up my copy: 14th march edition, page 27.
You use dimension tables to hold the descriptive attributes that you want to use to analyse your measures.
This is fine but what do you do when this information changes? There are three common ways that you can handle changes in your dimensional model.
