  1. Gupta Wedding - For the beancounters

    Where is our favourite Aussie - @Docker? This is serious.. In the last year, cases of a ghastly but mysterious flesh-eating bacterial infection have more than doubled in Victoria, Australia, raising alarm among health experts. There were 239 cases of the flesh-eating infections in the past 12 months, according to figures (PDF) released this week by health authorities. In 2016, there were only 102 reported cases, while 2015 and 2014 tallied just 58 and 47. And the rate of new infections is currently skyrocketing: in the past few months, case counts hit nine per week, according to Australia’s Nine News. The number of severe cases has also doubled. While the rises alone are enough to worry health experts, the fact that virtually nothing is known about the cause of the infection has some dismayed. “I’m at the forefront as a clinician trying to treat patients and getting more and more overwhelmed but also distressed at the fact that we are doing nothing to try and prevent people getting it in the first place,” Dr. Daniel O’Brien, of Royal Melbourne and Geelong hospitals, told Nine News. Baffling bacteria The infections are caused by Mycobacterium ulcerans, a slow-growing bacterium that causes gaping, palm-sized ulcers. Sometimes called Buruli ulcers, the lesions seem to dissolve skin and gnaw away at tissue. The bacteria are known to lurk around Victoria, but experts don’t know where it lives or how it spreads.

    You guys only know the cyber persona. He is in fact a very competent CA with his own business. He left the varsity where he worked and was well loved by his peers to start a new venture. Stop being jealous and pay the man some respect.

    There is no need. Our system (SAM4Windows) does not have a month end or day end. You set the calendar at the beginning of the financial year. You select your debtor dates and the system does all the rest. All debtors are automated and sent via pdf. All month-end reports are automatically spooled - all can be directly ported to Excel (because some folk still like to look busy). We do not print anything - we try to save paper because many a report is printed and never used. Users can flag their reports which will then be mailed to them via internal mail in pdf format. No need for anyone to babysit the system for a month end. A similar procedure - but more intricate - happens at year end when a 14th month is created for bean counters. We also allow auditors to log into the system remotely - they have access to only a query database which is replenished daily - this way they cannot screwup the live system etc.
  6. FUNNIES

    A joke is a joke, but you do not leave an albino in the sun, you do not put sand in a moffie (queer)'s Vaseline, you do not buy a radio for a deaf person, you do not organise an parent's evening at the orphanage, you never stick an "arrive alive" sticker to a hearse....and you never let a Springbok team play against the All Blacks

    Very true...again the difference between knowledge and experience. When you take that "knowledge" you acquired and you put it in practice over and over then you gain experience and only then do you start adding value. Basics is what is wrong with modern rugby too...

    That must've been a big bag of "beans" to count.. LOL See. us IT guys made everyone's life so much easier.

    Very seldom does theory and real life gel completely. Theoretically you can turn a tennis ball inside out without puncturing it.. LOL

    Many of these kids know how to play games on a computer. However when it comes to the actual working of a program and the stored-procedures in the database that does virtually "everything", they know nothing. Our system keeps track of every user and every intervention is time-stamped. At month end if they want to know who did "this" - we can tell them to the second which user from which IP address did it and how long the user spent on that specific transaction. Had a case the other day where the marketing guys tried to blame IT for a certain input which screwed their stats...... we wrote a script and printed it out, LOL the guy complaining and blaming was the one who did it.....marketing guys are good at backpedaling and perfect alibi-management ..

    True. When we did system audit for BMW - in other words checking the database architecture and ensuring the calc and procedures are correct we were "assisted" by an auditing firm. They sent little nose-pickers who were doing articles. One asked me if the system simply "drops" the difference (rounding) in transactions. I felt like dropping him on his freaking head. Had to explain in detail how the system calculates, rounds and what happens to the difference...written to a GL account called "rounding" and at month-end the "balance" of 11 cent (derived from transactions close to 2 million) or so is either added to profit or added to expenses depending on the amount being positive or negative. So when an "auditor" accepts that money value can simply be discarded I question their varsity lectures / logic. What if it is a big amount? The system has a parameter that flags any amount bigger than X.xx to send a mail to who ever is designated.. Stupid fucks.
