re: Thanks again Trumpkins - bigblake
Romney wasn't facing Hillary Clinton. The GOP's best hope for getting a R in the white house is for Trump to dropout and for Romney to run in his place. Romney would win by 10 points....

re: DOJ report on Baltimore, pretty much what we thought - bigblake
I read about 15 pages of the actual report. I thought some of it was fair, but the beginning irks me. Essentially says the targeted black people live in segregated communities, subject to social injustice, no educational opportunities, no job opportunities, etc... Comes across as very political. ...

re: What software does an Analyst need to know? - bigblake
[quote]Excel craps out trying to manipulate any decently sized data set. Removing duplicate records from a file with 500k rows (small by most business standards) via Excel is incredibly inefficient. These guys obviously know more than you. Trust them and learn from them. [/quote] Truth....

re: What software does an Analyst need to know? - bigblake
Excel is really a great tool to quickly see trends with pivot tables and do some quick data manipulation, but it craps itself after a couple hundred thousand rows. That's where SAS (and others) come in. Takes longer because you have to hand code, but it'll easily handle tens of millions of rows. ...

re: What software does an Analyst need to know? - bigblake
I don't do independent consulting work but I know Ruby. You're probably the first person I've heard refer to it as "older architecture" :lol:. Is your question regarding a web based application that's coded in Ruby (what made Ruby famous) or something independent of the web?...

Excel is a given, any person in a business job should know how to use Excel. Depends what type of analyst... [u]Quantitative Analyst, or Data Analyst:[/u] #1 SQL #2 Python or R The rest are pretty company specific and something they'd probably let you learn on the job. SAS is good bu...

re: Woman shows her boss who's boss over dress code policy - bigblake
1st: This article is written using only one side of the story. Boss probably has a different perspective. 2nd: If someone is dressing up trying to taunt their boss and posting it on social media, it makes me think the boss's side of the story is probably the true one. 3rd: Crappy employees ...

re: Is paying a realtor 4% reasonable? - bigblake
Something tells me she doesn't interpret that as both Realtors splitting 4%. I feel like she'd have pushed back really hard. Realtors only take home a portion of that percentage and it's annoying work for buyer's Realtor, which is why I doubt a buyer Realtor accepting 2%... Realtors are a rack...

re: Is paying a realtor 4% reasonable? - bigblake
Wait, are you paying 4% for both the seller and the buyer Realtor, or are you paying 4% to a Realtor that will possibly represent both sides? The latter seems like the only way you'd get a Realtor to agree to 4%. You'd never get 4% for both the buyer and seller Realtor, rather 5% if you're a great...

re: External Hard Drive Recommendations - bigblake
I've heard WD is the gold standard for the retail/cheap external drives. I've had seemingly every brand's drives, but my current ones (primary and backup) are WD My Passports. Newegg had a mega sale a few weeks ago... $61 for a 2TB My Passport Ultra, though ~$80 is a pretty good buy for the 2TB. ...
