Author Topic:   Rendezvous Calendar?

Hi all.

I've been reading most of the Rendezvous threads, and this summer is shaping up to be a busy one.

Is there any interest in a centralized rendezvous calendar? There are already four Midwest rendezvous' happening on two weekends this summer. Maybe this would help folks get the most out of our short summers. The southern folks might find it useful as well.

I would be happy to put a page up on my site, or maybe here at CW? (Jim, I know you're busy!) Just an idea...

Any thoughts?

What a great idea! It would be especially helpful if some details of each rendezvous could posted so people would be able join up in mid trip.

Great Idea. Execution could be complicated, though. I think that is what this section of the forum was supposed to do, although a central calendar would sure help.

Nice idea. Don't forget our 2002 rendezvous here in the Northwest!

Here's basically what I had in mind:

This is just a demo with the two Rendezvous' I plan on attending this year.

If you would like your Rendezvous included on the Calendar, send me the following via email:

1. The name of your Rendezvous
2. The city or locale where it is taking place.
3. Names, phone numbers, email addresses for the organizer and who/where to direct questions.
4. A URL to your rendezvous site, if available.
5. Anything else you think is appropriate.

After that, notify me as soon as possible with any changes and I'll update the page.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Dave -

Good thought. Can you post two events for the same weekend?

dfmcintyre --

Yes, I can post more than one event on the same weekend.

The Rendezvous calendar has been updated. If you don't see your event listed, send me the details and I will publish them.

Nice job on the calendar!

I'm afraid to ask, but what is (a) 5th Normal Form?

Nice job Dave! I think it will be very useful.

Very helpful, Dave. More details on the August 3 Mullet Lake (Cheboygan, MI) will be coming soon...we'll make sure you get the updates.

kingfish - 5th Normal Form is what you get when you 'isolate semantically related multiple relationships' within a data model.

Just my attempt at some geek humor. I'm a database administrator.

Hey Dave,

Have you ever seen the "daisy hill puppy farm" data normalization chart? It was published by DBMS magazine, it was one of the funniest and informative things I have ever seen.

Items like "...a delete anomaly can be created if the only dog that knows a particular trick get hit by a car and dies" Great stuff...

Yes--it's hanging in my cube.

I gave mine away years ago, if you know how to re-order one I would love to know...

Thanks for the explanation ("clear as mud but it cover de ground"--early Harry Belafonte humor)

Actually, as difficult as I find it to be to work in databases, I'm happy to find at the end of the day you guys can do that stuff and still HAVE a sense of humor!
