Three Pictures: All Cool, Two Funny

Three pictures landed in my inbox in the past 24 hours that I just had to share Smile

1) Condoms Power???


Without a Doubt:  A Very Strange Superpower Indeed Smile

The author of this Power Pivot workbook has agreed to write a guest post in exchange for my assistance.  Let’s hope he follows through, because it’s a fascinating model in addition to having a funny sheet tab name.  In the end it’s a very serious subject regarding HIV prevention in the Pacific Islands.

2) Comprehensive Export Support

One of my all-time favorite posts is “Export to Excel is the third most-common button in BI apps – after OK and Cancel.”

Dave Laverie recently saw that post and created the mockup above.  Clearly my kind of guySmile

PowerPivot En Espanol!


Translation is Complete, Now We’re In the Layout and Review Process Smile

Miguel Escobar is en fuego, as they used to say on SportsCenter.  He’s burned through the translation of the book in two short, intense periods of focus.  Should be on virtual shelves (in ebook form) within the next month.

What a cool thing.  If you have an interest in translating the book into another language, particularly German, drop me a note – you will share revenues in the resulting eBook and be credited as the translator.
