The day has arrived. I have been looking forward to this since I heard about it possibly happening over a year ago. We are implementing a new database. The fact that I’m this excited does make me a bit of a nerd, but that’s part of my charm-schmarms, right?

Tomorrow, my director and I are meeting with our representative from 422 Group to discuss our implementation of Continuum CRM. We’ve needed a new database for QUITE a while. Now we’ll have advanced e-mail tracking, an event tracking feature, a new online application, and all WEB ACCESSIBLE! I know some of my admissions friends might take this for granted, but not everyone can access everything from the road. Now we will be able to! I won’t need to come in to work to pull a report, I can work on things from home once in a while instead of always having to wait for everything!

I know, I’m naive. This is going to add LOTS of work to my plate. It’s going to be a crazy summer. I’m going to be up to my eyeballs in the database. But boy is it going to be a great end result!

I hope to frequently blog about my progress, so stay tuned!

I know. I’m a slacker. I swear I have a good excuse. We’re getting ready to roll out some big changes in the IT rookie arena here at Franklin College, so I’ve been trying to put it all together. Until I write about our new endeavor, let me just give you a brief update on a few things worth commenting on.

I came across a great blog post comparing my favorite sport to it’s lesser counterpart and the marketing lessons we can learn. I gave my two cents on the racing bit, but the marketing aspect is genius if you as me. Check it out here: (Oh, and don’t believe all that Helio talk! He’s an open wheel guy for sure).

I’ve been doing a lot of twittering. I find it lets me vent and also give/receive quick information. I’ve never been totally interested in the WWDC, but yesterday I was hooked on what they were announcing. So I found out on Twitter! Well sort of, I found out of summarize, but that’s neither here nor their. The point is, I really wish I would have waited on the iTouch, because now there’s a $200 iPhone. Oh well. My birthday is coming soon… Maybe the best husband ever will let me get one! I’ll just have to be sure his Father’s Day gift if fabulous! Any ideas? I think he wants a GPS.

OK, back to contacting students, office retreat summary, project work, and GPS research. Oh wait, it’s lunch time… Maybe I can do all that after 1! 🙂
