I know you guys can deal with a database, but how does one go about getting other people to deal with a database?
One of my jobs at work is answering banal questions such as "did our sales in each region change change much over the last five years compared to each other?" which is easy enough for me. But I am trying to make it so that people don't need me for such silly questions at all, and can answer them for themselves.
I see a few options in business intelligence type query writing software like Microsoft's Power BI, Pentaho, and SiSense, and they all have their own strengths and weaknesses. However the biggest hurdle is the people who I want to use this stuff.
Have any of you managed to get your colleagues to use anything more complicated than Excel? What hurdles did you run into, and how did you overcome them?
If I'm bascially immortal and super lucky, I don't need to have much money.
As for your question:
>Have any of you managed to get your colleagues to use anything more complicated than Excel?
If people are good with Excel, they are usually easy to motivate to learn Access. Just sell it as a "more powerfull" version of Excel, no need to begin with normal forms..
>What hurdles did you run into, and how did you overcome them?
Obviously a database is much more complex and powerfull. But the questions is what features do you need? Access comes with some halfway decent drag-and-drop editors.
But you should give them one/two days training (you can do it yourself, if you want to) to get the fundamentals of Access.
Just make a few slides to explain some basic principles ("no, you can't just pull this row up here, since they are sorted"), some examples and some group exercises. And then give them a book and tell them to google up things they don't know.
Ususally people are happy to learn new technologies as it improves their skill profile.
you got a comfy job, why automate it and lose all dem easy bux?
Also a lot of business people arent dumb but they cant or dont want into technology, a lot of oldfags, they just dont like it, what they do like is doing actual business things, so consider yourself lucky that they keep you in a position for this

Any cheap model making/gundam related shit?
I'm trying to get in the hobby but the price tag on all quality items is steep if you're starting from scratch.
Things like paint, plastic accessories or parts, airbrushes, etc. I've seen kits as well but they seem more expensive than on dedicated sites.
How many lines of code have you written in the last week anon?

>The European Union's top court is sending back a case on a billion euro fine against chip maker Intel Corp. for further legal examination.
>Wednesday's ruling had been eagerly awaited for its implications on the powers of the antitrust office of the EU.
>In 2009, the EU fined Intel Corp. a record 1.06 billion euros, saying the world's biggest computer chip maker used illegal sales tactics to shut out smaller rival AMD.
>The European Commission says Intel broke EU competition law by exploiting its dominant position with a deliberate strategy to keep AMD out of the market that limited customer choice.
>The European Court of Justice sent the case back to the lower General Court so it can examine more arguments from Intel.
This is Deepin: the prettiest distro.
The only way you could think that piece of shit is acceptable to use is if you barely know English.
I tried it, their website was in shambles, took me forever to find a working download link, then when I installed it all the instructions and menus were in broken English.
If you unplug your ethernet cable systemd will wait over five minutes for it to be plugged in on boot, so you get irritated and plug it in so Google can receive the ping from your machine.
Just systemd things.
what has systemd improved? it's created issues for server admins everywhere for seemingly zero reason beyond some stupid desktop-user shit.
I wrote this post on a systemd Debian desktop.
is it possible to find out password of a wifi network?
Does anybody know any security website that has such informations?

I currently operate an iPhone 6 Plus 128gb, but i believe it would be wise to have 2 phones running two different OS. Inform me /g/ pedes.
Most features - Galaxy S8+, though if you can wait a few weeks both the Note 8 and V30 will be out, which are both superior
Best software support - Pixel XL, though it's almost a year old now and the Pixel 2 is coming soon (albeit likely without a headphone jack)
Best all-rounder with 3rd party software support at a decent price - OnePlus 5 (base model is fine, or if you wanna go overkill the 8GB RAM model)
went to a best buy recently for reasons, decided to check out the moto g5 plus, camera was ok as expected for a budget android, but the video was choppy as all hell compared to my iphone 6. again, budget android so makes sense next, i go to a samsung galaxy s8, camera is obviously good, but the video has the same choppy effect are you fucking kidding me. my iphone 6 videos are smooth as hell, a 3 year old phone.
caveat: i tried to go into video setting to check if i could change fps but the demo kept kicking me out so maybe it has the potential to not be shit?

is fuschia going to kill all of linux's momentum?
let's be honest, the world needs a new OS... badly...
Linux is great, I love it, especially on server, but even desktop is not bad... but still ... I am unironically telling you that I have more experiences of Linux freezing because of hardware/driver incompatibility than Windows has
Windows is a shitty botnet now and it's 'really disgusting legacy OS that we need to kill... it's still popular because of gaymers
Android is kind of OK but patched together quickly, needs to be redone from scratch, we need to get rid of Java too
MacOS is a great idea: put a nice GUI on top of UNIX and parts of BSD... unfortunately it has one of teh gayest stupidest companies behind in the history of mankind
we need a new OS, one to be good for all devices (like Ubuntu wanted to be with Unity, but failed), written from scratch for 2017 hardware, no need for legacy support... something nice and elegant and just wekrs
I think Google can pull it off

What happened in the world?
Remember the HotJava browser? One of the goals for it was that it would be constantly extended to have new features by every site you visited, because they would all supply java code to handle their custom graphics formats, and any interactive elements.
Not just the simple plugin model; far less restrictions in a per-site sandbox.
