good stuff thread.

After all these years I'm finally gonna start learning to drive and get a car. Started off that I was a nervous passenger after a small crash and that shook my confidence enough that I didn't learn as a teenager but I think it just shifted into being too lazy to even try. I don't expect to start learning until next year at the moment but it at least gives me a chance to start putting some money away. I've decided I may as well go electric straight away.

So I got interviewed on BBC radio recently and took part in one of the games the presenter plays (guess the person’s job).  If you have a spare 6 minutes and fancy a chuckle at how I suddenly had to explain that I touch people, without saying anything incriminating on breakfast radio then have a listen on this link (my club’s Facebook page where they cut just the relevant part of the show).

Good stuff? I remembered my credentials for this site after a long long time away from it. Oh, no my dad got discharged from hospital today “cancer free” after a rough rough time (Covid + Cancer can both suck a bag of cocks)

lol, you could just reached out to Ashley or Me(who would've just reached out to Ashley or Cube) and seen if you coulda get a reset :p

I presumed you were just one of the some who slowly drifted/moved away from the place - and iirc you had started writing on your site elsewhere and I presumed that just took your gaming focus alongside life and the family!

Big up to your dad tings tho - I was actually thinking about MadDog recently and maybe getting another(and i wont lie maybe last) proper meetup sorted - but like in advance of NOW for next year cos we're all supposedly proper adults now(not me ive been outta work since before covid and had an annoying run of health so im a bum now lol).

Writing for a site elsewhere went well for a while, but bills resulted in knuckling down hard career wise. So Analytics and Statistics is my bag now. I still dip my toes into GSRR but, kid and career sadly (weird way to look at it) came first.

I’m working as an analytics manager for Defence Equipment & Support. It’s a branch for the MoD. My team builds reports for the finance area of DE&S. We are given data from different areas (Navy, Airforce etc) which again in itself has different content (operating expenditures, program cost reviews etc) and we build the ETL process to house the data in our trusted data warehouse, then we model the data following kimball methodology and finally build reports / create KPIs we think might be relevant to the areas. They’ll have requirements they want to see, but we also have freedom to explore the data and try to output what we think might be valuable information to them.

 

It’s really fascinating data we’re provided, but given the content, can’t really tell you more than that haha.

ah shit nothing worse for a maths boner than the MoD and I mean that really fucking literally too.

This is only a foretaste of what is to come and only the shadow of what is going to be

RIP. A living god - chastised by powerful white men who cared where his dick had been. I will NEVER forgive it. We would be great beyond measure as a global society if it were not for that fucking human ignorance. He was a King.

So my good news is that I passed my Gym Instructor test. I am now officially qualified to teach fitness classes, instruct people on how to do exercises and help out in a gym. I am absolutely chuffed! I'm halfway there and living on a prayer! haha!

Congrats! As well as being a sports coach myself, I have friends doing similar courses and they all say how much more involved it is then they realised, so nice one! 👏🏻

Thank you! It's been quite tough, honestly. I did so much preparation for it and it went very smoothly. The comments I got back were great- I was told that I was very informative and knew my stuff but I could've been louder, but that was down to nerves. I'm just going to enjoy Christmas for now and hit the books hard in January ready for my Level 3. To be fair though, I've done the essays, assignments, quizzes and theory and I just need to do the practical. I'm great when I'm not being watched but because I know it's on the line and there's a difference between passing and actually having a career or failing and having it go on for longer, it sticks with me. 

I know I got this though!

Would have been pretty embarrassing if I'd failed, as I've been driving a car for 15 years and a lot of the questions applied to both cars and bikes.
