The most wonderful and excellent 17catherines has started a community called vicbushfirefund, where people can auction off either the use or the fruits of their skills, and all the proceeds will go towards the Relief Fund.

This is a good way to do something if, like me, you have no skills that are directly relevant to the crisis at hand, and more time than money.

Go. Do.

Help with MS Access for the self taught newbie. Oct. 31st, 2006 @ 01:52 am
I may be asking too much here. I don't have alot of skills to offer, unless you want information about publishing small press things (fanzines, indy comics etc), or obscure movie trivia. I'm amatuer level at both. I'm sure I have other skills, but I'm not sure what they are.

I work in a retail video store. When I got the job 5 months ago he was still using paper records. Nothing was in the computer. (yeah, wow.)

Myself and one other employee took it upon ourselves to type the inventory into the computer. We started with Excel, then with help from a freind I transferred it to Access.
I work very late at night, and it's a very quiet job. I have almost nothing to do during my 8 hour shift. (about 1-2 hours of customer service, and 1-3 hours of cleaning.) So I started trying to make a workable computer program to keep track of movies, sales and rentals, and customers. I had no idea what I was getting into. I have 0 skill at this, except what I have learned on my own in the last 4 months. I'm not getting paid as a programmer, but am merely doing it in order to each myself, and to create a decent impression at work (and in the long term to make my life easier by having the movies online)..

Please, no comments about what a cheap so and so my boss is. I already know :)

4 months, four online tutorials, 2 books, and a couple of friends later, I'm dangerously close to having it finished. But I can't 'fine tune it' to make it work. My last few questions seem fairly complicated.

We are using MS Acess 2003

We have a project in the planning stages that we would like a little help on please. We need photos of public artworks, particularly sculptures but anything else is fine as well, that you find odd, interesting or even better, hideous or just dumb.

Digital format preferred, and they can be sent to the email address on my info page.

If possible, details of where they are, what they're called and the artist's name would be appreciated as well.

Thanks everyone!

I forgot to mention that I am in Brooklyn, New York. I didn't catch that the group is scattered all over creation. Gosh darn it all!!!

Help! (Did I mention the Master's Degree in Education? Jun. 10th, 2005 @ 08:29 pm

Simply put, I hate cleaning my house. I probably hate cleaning more than anyone you've ever met.

I need to find ways to get it DONE that don't involve me being miserable. Therefore, I want to swap whatever I can for housecleaning. The best solution I have come up with is child care. It's what I do BEST.

With more than 15 years experience, from birth doula to parenting a developmentally delayed teenager and everything in between, I am WELL equipped to care for your child/children.

I'm willing to offer two for one, even! (Well, someone's got to care for them while you're here, right? Bring them along! We'll play!)

I'm actually going to be working at a family camp this summer, so I would like to get this underway and then reconvene in the fall.

Feel free to email me or IM me (quiteabroad at yahoo dot com) and we can talk about it!

(Lots of people can vouch that I am not psycho)

I am considering providing my I.T services to schools and small businesses. Does anyone have any idea what the going rate is out there? I want to be able to cover my expenses, like driving and any incidentals, but I think the main things is what my hourly rate could/should be?

Any ideas? Does anyone know anyone who works in this kind of field?

» The skills I can bring...

Coming from the land of "the public servant" I can write great Selection Criterias and CV's. I've got quite a few people I know an interview... (the rest, they say... is up to you and your interview panel).

Any computer stuff most people know more than me... (I'm only a baby geek amongst you people).

I'm happy to assist in any way that I can!

Is anybody out there a JP (Justice of the Peace)?
It's so frustrating not being able to find one as banks etc don't always have them any more.
» Offerings (possibly burnt)
Well, here are the skills I can offer:

  • Lotus Notes (Admin & Development)

  • General computer stuff (Ask - if I know I'll tell you.)

  • Animation trivia

  • Selected musical trivia

  • </li>

I figure the last two may only be useful to you in a particularly bizarre set of circumstances, but what the hey.
