Yet another blog…

Categories: General Dave Rathbun @ 1:50 am

I already have a couple of blogs. Why start another one? Well, it is just so darned easy. :-D And I believe that by having separate blogs for separate reasons it becomes easier to build an audience. So if you are here you have probably followed a link from the collective known as BOB and you’re looking for stuff related to Business Objects. If so, you’ve found the right place.

I plan to post technical tips and podcasts that are related primarily to working with universe design and building reports, as that’s where my primary interest is.

So whoever you are, and wherever you have arrived from, welcome. 8-)

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, Mark.

    One of the questions I get quite a bit is along the lines of don’t I ever sleep? The answer is, “Not much” :-D

    to see your activities (BOB – all your posts as well as BOB administration and development; this personal blog; the photography page) – I always tended to think that many more people are hidden behind the pseudonym Dave Rathbun ;-)
    Just kidding, of course ;-)

    Marek, Its exactly as I suspected; “Dave Rathbun” is actually a pseudonym for a whole dedicated Business Objects team / religion, no wonder he always has so much time on his hands….;)

    No, it’s just me. And me. (And ME!) Shut up, you, you’re breaking our vow of secrecy. No, I won’t shut up, I have been held back too long! I must…

    Oh, look! A butterfly!

    Besides the sites you list, I also have another board / blog combination related to the phpBB software used to run BOB. I have another private blog just for family, and yet another blog that is in the works as I am converting an existing static site into something more dynamic.

    I just needed something to fill out the rest of my time. :-P
