Coding…

Standard

I love my job.  I love creating queries, digging into a pile of data and making sense out of it.  I was born to be a Data Analyst and it shows in all aspects of my life – from my personal mileage/gas tracking database to my license plate that simply states Data Grl, you pretty much know the first love of my life.

This can be both a blessing and a curse.  I take my job very seriously.  I take my skill set very seriously.  I have a tendency to take too long before I can bring myself to ask for help and I have a tendency to be more than slightly irrated whenever I work with a Data Analyst/Report Write who doesn’t seem to care about Data as much as I do.

I’m working on building a new report that expands an older reporter. I’m looking through the code of left joins and unnecessary joins and poorly written SQL and I wonder, How could anyone write this and call themselves a Data Analyst?  This is a hack job.

Am I alone? Anyone else have difficulties working with other people’s code?  I’d really love to know if I am completely alone in this or are there others?

Matthew 25

Jesus wept

A Sad Jesus


In fact, the entire GOP has apparently not read Matthew 25:31-46. Just listen to them when they call Social Security and Medicare entitlements. They act like we the people are getting rich on the backs of the taxpayers, but the only ones getting rich are the so-called “job creators”. A vote for a Republican is just going to put more money in the pockets of those who least need it, while the “job creators” continue to layoff our working brothers and sisters.

“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne.  All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.  For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

“They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

“He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

“Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
