Rainbows, Rubbish, Ravings and Ramblings of my Random Existence

01 March 2012

Boo! (a few updates... and whining)

So, yup. RLife and SLife are pretty exciting at the moment, and I thought I should let you know that I am still alive by rantingsharing some of it.

By exciting, I meant that I have moved in SL. All at once. My home has moved! My shop has moved! My cat stall at Juice Berry Farms has moved! (Just next door. Don't ask.) My cat stall at Alley Cats has moved! (Not that I had ever mention I have one. Now you know.) Come visit me here! And here! And here! And... I forgot to get a LM for Alley Cats. I'll update that into my sidebar when I get to it.

So you see, I am basically all over the place now. Another word for "exciting" is probably "stressful". I have insomnia at night (yes, only at night), so I lay awake hyperventilating and planning pixels. And control charts. Which brings us (not very smoothly) to what is so stressfulexciting in my RL.

I have recently been tasked to do up some serious charting at work in RL. It is so important that everyone in my department were told to leave me alone so that I can churn out charts in peace and in (very limited) time for my boss's boss's boss.

We are talking some 86721134354 charts using all kinds of formulae. Such as UCLp=p-bar+3(p-bar(1-p-bar))^(1/2)/(n-bar)^(1/2), if the samples are not necessarily of constant size and if n-bar-20%<=n<=n-bar+20%. If it is rejected because my boss's boss's boss does not want non-compliance charting, then the formula will be based on UCLx=x-bar+E2mr-bar, because UCLx-bar=x-barbar+A2r-bar does not work as r and r-bar cannot be 0 for the chart to work.

It's not that difficult.

I am only stuck at trying to figure out why the hell n=2 (not the same n in the previous formula) and how the hell I know n=2. But I know.

The problem is, there was no way I could have gotten out of this because:
1. When our consultant trainer taught us the charts, I didn't fall asleep as I should.
2. I pretended I knew what he was blabbering about by asking questions that probably sounded intelligent. If I were really intelligent, I would have known to shut up.
3. I have a degree in mathematics, and an A-Level in statistics. Not that I remember a thing my lecturers lectured. Now that I think about it, I wonder how I passed my exams.

So I have been charting for about a week. I am now at chart no.1.

And I end up staring at the computer screen and then blogging.

And no, this is not part of the exciting plan I was talking about in the previous post.
