Welcome to bobf's Ice Cream Shop

Please feel free to browse though the finest selection of ice cream in the Monastery, made fresh daily from only the best ingredients found in and around the grounds*. At least int rand(50) varieties are guaranteed to be in stock at any given time (of the more than 1000 recipies I've accumulated), but if you don't see your favorite I do take requests.

If you are in the mood for something else, please stop by Moriarty's Fine Food Emporium, where you can find a delectable selection of cheese, chocolate and marshmallows.

*A few specialty items must be imported. I also keep a small stock of cheesecake behind the counter for special guests. Let me know if you're interested and I'll see what I can do. ;-)

Discipulus manual work: i just tell the same to my boss: every time the quick solution is to assign some manual data entry task to my group.. because we have not direct access to many databases here..
[LanX]: point is: in high speed trade each bank has to remember what he has to get from the others... so dresdner got billed for losses but couldn't claim gains
Discipulus is this the IT?
[Corion]: Discipulus: Well, in many cases it doesn't make sense to build an interface and complicated program just to enter 20 rows into a database ;) But yes, automating data imports should pay off in the long run
[LanX]: Choroba: this happened before I joined, was still in uni, but my boss was summoned to the CEO of the second biggest German bank at that time and could only say " I told them its not ready" ;)
[LanX]: memories....I missed my connection while chatting
[Discipulus]: in this case Corion we are speaking about software licensing: evry year or two we must rescan the whole ced to produce an excel report, while at every activation / disactivation we update a black box DB: i said that i a week i can produce the perl to..
[Discipulus]: rend out the xls IF i have access to the DB
