Nothing to see here, move along

Hi - I always feel guilty blogging as think I should be spending time on projects instead. 

Of course, that is totally daft as I do enjoy writing so I PROMISE to blog more here. I think I'll do more on free tools, the state of the industry (or industries), project/ product delivery, why I love certain software and more. 

I'd say 'stay tuned' but will 'under-promise and over-deliver' by saying 'please check out my twitter in the meantime!' www.twitter.com/AzSheridan

Not that long ago, if someone had told me to image a work environment where you communicate with your colleagues via Twitter, where email has disappeared, and you drag collaborative project steps around a virtual white-board, I would have you said you were mad. If you had also said these business tools were free, I would have just stopped listening.

PIVOTS! Raiser's Edge Year on Year Income Comparisons Using Pivot Reports

"No other tool in Excel gives you the flexibility and analytical power of a pivot table"

The above quote is from Bill Jelen (a.k.a. Mr. Excel). For those of us who have upgraded to Raiser’s Edge 7.94 or 7.95, you may have noticed that Pivot Reports have changed to offer support for the full Excel pivot report but maybe not seen what that means to you.
