Well, I Know What It Isn’t . . .

I spent most of today at work trying to track down a slow data problem on the local in-house network. Our office manager wants to be able to call up customer info from one computer to another. But it can take as long as 15 seconds to pull up over network, where it just takes a second or so on the local machine.

It’s not a network problem since the UPS shipping program does the same thing, but in the other direction. And it runs just fine.

I did try repairing and then compacting the database which did help a bit, but it really didn’t fix the problem. So now I know what it’s not.

I’m beginning to think that the problem might be the way that the program sorts the data to find the requested customer. As it sorts it may be moving large chunks of the 3.5 MB data file back and forth. So my next thought is to see if I can pre-sort the customer database by the customer name rather than the customer number.

I’ll give it a try on Wednesday and see if it makes a difference.

Coming home I stopped off at the Victory Lakes Jason’s Deli to pick up soup, salad, and sandwiches for dinner. I had pre-ordered and pre-paid for it using their phone app so it was ready when I walked in the door. I would have/ could have used the drive-thru lane, but  there were already 4 cars in line. So it was quicker to just park and go in. Seems like more and more places have these apps and it’s really convenient.

Tomorrow a stay at home day, though we’ll probably go out for dinner. We’re thinking Rudy’s BBQ, but we’ll see how it goes.

I had a couple of people asking about the new LED headlights l ordered. They should  be in on Wednesday, so I’ll let you know. I’ll probably replace one first and see the difference.

Thought for the Day:

Don’t be stupid. We have politicians for that.
