    Olympic Opening Ceremonies

    Suck.

    It's like every country in the worlds version of a Super Bowl halftime show.

    Weird, often incomprehensibly so, artsy-fartsy spectacles.

    It's like a natural law that they will suck.

    I'm not.

    I caught about 15 seconds of writhing people in masks wrapped in red elastic bands and left the room.

    I walked back down 15 minutes later after packing for a family reunion and it had proceeded to what looked like a Jr High talent show being performed by 40 yr olds.

    My wife, her friend, my teenage daughter and her 2 girlfriends were watching it. And u apparently. I'm up in our bedroom writing end of year SQL analytics reports for our summer swim team listening to a pod cast.

    I can't watch that garbage.

    Nope, I am binging Jeopardy at the moment.

    I'll watch some of the stuff and my wife will definitely watch gymnastics. But opening and closing ceremonies? Pfft. I wish all people would stop watching that so we can watch more of the actual games.

    We're looking forward to watching swimming. My kids swam with/against Phoebe Bacon and we've seen her swim in the MCSL and DC area Metros. It's cool seeing a local kid in the Olympics.

    Don't bury the lead. Literally writing sql, or using a bi tool?

    SQL

    I use SSRS and Visual Studio to render formatted reports I can export to excel and give to the team.

    All the heavy lifting is done in SQL.

    I get an ms access export from the automation laptop and use a little SSIS package to import it to a MS SQL database and run against that.

    Its fun data to play with. I didnt have any data dictionary or anything and just hacked it. It is very intuitive data though. Five or six tables.

    I create a trophy report for all the swimmers based on time standards that is used for ordering hardware for the end of year banquet. I also calculate the total number of best times for each kid and thats used to help figure most improved swimmer.

    I took over 12 years ago when the msaccess program some other dude created to do this got destroyed/lost on a dead laptop.

    I enjoy playing with the data so it worked out well.
