Learning Python

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018

Apparently after writing a CFA® exam and while waiting for your score the thing to do according to online forums is to learn Python. I’ve now passed all three CFA exams and I already have programming experience in: Microsoft BASIC, Turbo Pascal, C, C++, Perl, Scheme, JavaScript, Modula-2, Java, Objective-C, PHP, VBA, and ColdFusion…

Reporting Intellectual Property Theft

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

The CFA® exam has come and gone. I will write more on this later, but I took time out of my study schedule to report a whole bunch of intellectual property theft and four months later some of those files are still online…

I’m a Professional Scrum Master™

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

During my never ending post-MBA job search one of many suggestions I got was to do some certifications. I always said I was willing to do certifications in job interviews and even started the CFA® program while I was unemployed. However, in order to do the PMP you need to be actively working as a Project Manager, but I eventually learned you can do other project management certifications…

WordPress Plugin Woes

Saturday, November 12th, 2016

Although I and indeed the whole world have much bigger problems, I’ve continued to tweak and try to improve my WordPress install and theme. I am waiting for replies or updates for several plugins or support threads as detailed in my previous post. What I should probably be doing is studying but my heart isn’t in it and what I’m really waiting for is the company I interviewed with last to get back to me…

My Top Blog Landing Pages of 2015

Friday, January 1st, 2016

I never intended to spend so much time blogging at the end of 2015, but since I did spend so many hours, I should at least do a token post about what is actually getting read on this blog versus what was an exercise in typing. Avinash Kaushik is a smart guy but man is his name hard to spell…

I need a new News App

Friday, October 30th, 2015

So I live in China behind the Great Firewall which makes it difficult to get the latest news. I of course have a VPN but it doesn’t always work, but when it does I use Pulse as my main news source. I used to use Twitter more and I even used to use Summify before Twitter acquired them, but after it’s demise I became a Pulse user and then it too was acquired. I can’t get confirmation beyond the screenshot I took, but it appears the standalone Pulse app may be retired permanently…
