What I learned this week: Data Skew

Disclaimer: In the spirit of full transparency, I learned about data skew a little while ago. But the whole point is “what I learned this week.” In some cases, “this week,” just refers to this week in time…like…last week, last month, whatever. My first brush with NPSP was as a consultant. I remember very clearlyContinue reading “What I learned this week: Data Skew”

What I learned about this week: E3

Look at me, sticking with this idea of sharing the things I learn each….week….ish. And really, I’ve learned a lot this week. I’ve been studying for some exams, been setting up some new third party applications I haven’t used before. That’s cool. Know what’s even cooler? E3. E3 is infinitely cooler. To an extent, anyway.Continue reading “What I learned about this week: E3”

Morning Routines

I was just looking at my basic Twitter feed, and amidst the Salesforce and Mass Effect and election posts, there was a Promoted Tweet from the Wall Street Journal – (I’m sure you’ve all seen the article in the journal, but I want to stress that it’s all conjecture.  My feelings journal? Michael, he means theContinue reading “Morning Routines”

Online Proctoring: My Horror Story

I enjoy my creature comforts. I like working from my couch some days, with blankets all bundled around me, feet propped up, and a cup of coffee nearby. Most importantly I like all of those things in my own house. If offered an opportunity to get coffee at a fancy coffeeshop or make myself a cupContinue reading “Online Proctoring: My Horror Story”

DnDF17 Episode 3: To the smithy

Previously on DnDF…AKA better late than never The temple district was in disarray, but the members of Bacon Ipsum had to continue their work. Dwarves were moving out of the streets, and while the team wanted to know their destination, Trailblazer had a bad feeling about the growing glow near her former mentor’s blacksmith forge.Continue reading “DnDF17 Episode 3: To the smithy”

DnDF17 Episode 2: Everything must be dwarf

Previously on DnDF17… The members of Bacon Ipsum stared in growing horror at the flames consuming Moscone. Datatello’s concern heightened with each area he recognized, but his eyes focused on his own neighborhood, wondering if his sister, Erikuhl, was safe. Bakaryu had to use all of her mental discipline to stay put, seeing the glowContinue reading “DnDF17 Episode 2: Everything must be dwarf”

DnDF17: The adventure so far

Last week, on DnDF17 (some artistic liberties have been taken) The weary members of Bacon Ipsum wound through the streets of Moscone. They were silent, all of them thinking only of the destination and what would await them there – the best coffee in Forcelandia and payment for their efforts defeating what may or mayContinue reading “DnDF17: The adventure so far”

It’s that time again!

Last year I did a thing to help raise money for ExtraLife, and I introduced the world to Brunhilda Battlehammer, AKA Trailblazer, AKA my dwarf ranger character for DnDF16. I have news for you all… SHE IS BACK WITH A VENGEANCE! And by vengeance, I simply mean that I will be reprising this role for DnDF17!Continue reading “It’s that time again!”

Ready Admin One

Or what video games have taught me as a Salesforce admin (and consultant). I realize that this will come as a shock to almost 0% of my audience, but I like to play video games. Mostly long (100 hour plus) RPGs with rich stories, well-developed characters, or at least enough of one to mask the lackContinue reading “Ready Admin One”
