numbers and letters
If you don’t see me online for the next few days. . . . I will be going bug eyed entering many numbers and letters into two different databases! This is the part of bird banding that isn’t as much fun as being with the birds. I will try to take some breaks to see what everyone is up to this week!

I do a lot of spread sheets in my work and after a day or two of it, my eyes go all googly. I hope you don’t suffer the same fate. 🙂

Come on Tom, you know you love numbers and letters, you are a scientists man!! Glad it’s not me, have fun!

@ Barb – thanks
@ Laurie – ugg, tell me about it but at least you get paid for your data entry!
@ Bernie – I do but if I don’t focus then it will never get done!

Too bad you can’t get some voice recognition software, and just read them in. But then your voice may never recover! Celebrate big when it’s done.

You will be having to do a few more in 2 more years, and I would go bug eyed over putting numbers and letters into a database all day to!

Ugh, Tom good luck with the database entry! Can’t wait to hear from you again!

AH! The paperwork! The jobs not done ….

Good luck Tom. Looks like something I face daily in my job too….at least when inputting the data, you will have the nice memories of all the birds you held in your hands and it will be so much more than just numbers.

You’ve had your fun now it’s time to pay the price!
You have my sympathy

Oh yes, we must keep track of things.
I do appreciate spreadsheets though; I use one for all my grading. Let the machine do the math computation for me!

Doesn’t look like much fun, but I guess we all have to pay the piper eventually.Hope things go smoothly for you.

Bless you, Tom. I’ll bet you’d rather have bird beaks nipping your fingers than face that paper work.

I wouldn’t mind doing data entry so much if I could get right the first time.
