Meebo the Excel_Geek

New feature!

Sorry I haven't been posting lately. I 've been super busy, and most of the projects I'm working on lately are of the Private Project variety, which doesn't give me much latitude to tell you all about them, but just to give you all some idea of what the heck I'm doing, here are some ultra-brief descriptions:

  • a fixed income securities optimizer

  • a shipping container optimizer

  • an ecommerce site revenue model for scenario analysis

  • several custom business forms and a staff scheduler

  • code to export a series of Excel charts to image files to use in a mail merge

Now, the real reason for this post: Do you all see it? I've installed a MeeboMe widget on the upper right-hand side of the blog. Super cool. Now, please understand, by their own admission, this thing is a bit buggy right now (sometimes I'm having trouble getting it to show I'm online even when I am), but they'll get those issues worked out, and this will be sweet. When I'm online, you all can shoot me instant messages. Got a quick simple question? Meebo me!

Aren't familiar with Meebo? I suggest reading their blog from start to finish (or skim through it as you've got time). This little company recently landed big venture capital funds to try to figure out a revenue model to support their mutli-instant messaging service aggregating capabilities. I've been following them semi-regularly since near the beginning. I think they may be onto something with this Meebo Me service.
