"These days"?  Why, did he use to rape, pillage and drink apple brandy from the skulls of his enemies?

Shouldn't really laugh as it must be shit to happen, but I did LOL a bit at this earlier on the way to Central's TV studio in Leeds.

It’s not difficult, just sooooo much data on screen. And it’s not a quarter of a million, it’s over two million as I found more files yesterday afternoon. Excel doesn’t seem to be able to cope with that many lines of code so i have had to spread the file over four worksheets. It is very slow and likes falling over!


Excel will accept just over a million lines of data. I think Access will take more but I've always found that a pain to work with.

Tried breaking it into four separate sheets with half a million numbers in each.

Still tripping over itself non stop so have reverted to the mark one eyeball. Tedious but workIng. Have decided to get myself a number checked each day, make those calls, and then check the next batch ready for the next day and so on.

Nope, this is the GDPR in full effect. I have a list of 1400 financial advisers to contact but have to make sure none of them are registered with the corporate telephone preference service before I call.
Of course the format we use for our numbers is different to the preference service file so an auto dedupe won’t work. FFS! I am altering our files to match theirs for future automatic checking (the pref service list changes every month)

I have a massive file to copy and paste into another. It’s a list of about a quarter of a million phone numbers!

The file isn’t on excel so I can’t just select and copy the column, it’s on notepad for some reason (some people think it is cutting edge, Ho hum) so I need to sit here holding shift and page up. For a long time.

Got bored with that so in true autoshite fashion I came up with a cheap engineering fix. One bolt on the shift key, another on the page up key, and a phone resting on each to maintain the pressure. I can now sit and watch The Protectors instead!


Couldn't you have written a script to import it into excel automatically? Notepad format is pretty basic.

Exactly.

I’ve only met him recently at the GSA and CCC meetings. He’s told me he was Ragnar, but his wife calls him Dave. He said he used to be a bit of a hell raiser but has settled down now.

Well, having spent four hours this afternoon on it, you would be ok, with appropriate data processor and data controller agreements.

Stupidly as a small business it seems the directors (me ) need to write to the staff ( guess who) to tell them about the information the company holds and how it is used. We don’t deal with the public thankfully so that’s one chunk out of the headache and everything else can be covered with contractual or legitimate use processes.

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

Yes that colour is one of the nicest they did too.

As I wandered to Moss while waiting for my hire car, I passed a chap parked up sitting in his MK2 MX5. I forgot how much I really like them, especially inside. I'm awfully tempted to get another.

I mentioned previously that I quite liked the idea of another MX5 to my wife. She gave full blessing to the idea of getting another.
