Happy Friday, GN!

Hope teh thread kitteh doesn’t think it’s a scorpion. 👿

Fatwa — how many HOAs want their roofs replaced before the storm next week?

We’ve had some preposterously unreasonable requests, but nothing quite that ridiculous…yet.

Paddy --

Like that your tree is elegant but understated; classy.

Sven --

Your ZOG contribution is appreciated; we’re trying to keep the rain sustained but light in order to -- hopefully -- avoid flooding. 🙂

Happy Friday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!

I’ve been dealing with data issues at work lately. Data from both our student information system and our special education database get uploaded to a state database periodically. I take care of the special education side and it can take up to a week to upload all of the files and correct any errors (and it’s recommended that files be uploaded weekly!). I’ve been dealing with certification of the records uploaded from the start of school to “census day” -- October 6th -- and resolving errors that the state has identified. Things like “you updated a special education record, but the previous school hasn’t terminated their enrollment yet”. Unfortunately, I can only correct current records. If we’ve held a special education meeting and uploaded that record, I can’t go back and correct errors with old records. The same is true if the student is no longer enrolled at my school, yet we’re still required to fix them. To call the situation frustrating would be an understatement.

Hi, Paddy and Sven!

…a state database…

There’s yer problem right there, Paddy.

I’d reckon some Sacramento mucky-muck’s nephew got a no-bid contract at an exorbitant rate for performing carptastic design and implementation work.

(The next time I see a well-executed gummint website will be the first time; half of them look like they were made with freakin’ GeoCities.)

I find this pretty funny, but I’m sure Newsom will bail them out in one form or another.
