695 Miles when calculating with ZipCityDistance, 694 when using GEODIST.

 

Thanks for posting this topic.  I am presenting my E-poster on Monday with my topic being how I drew inspiration from a similar thread  on who was traveling the furthest to last year's Global Forum.  I implemented changes to a marketing program that increased sales by a million dollars.  Similar code that you (MMMMIIIIKKKKEE) posted last year was an inspiration and I mention you and your post in my slides and paper.  

 

My E-Poster presentation is on Monday at 1:30 and is titled: From Idea to Implementation:  How a SAS Communities Thread Changed How Sleep Number Direct Markets.

 

Please stop by if you have a chance.

 

Best,

Hey CB 76247,

 

You are only 20 miles from me.  Do you go to the NOTSUG (North Texas SAS User Group Meetings)?  The next one is April 27, 2018.

 

If you don't I would like to extend an invitation from myself and the other officers.

 

Don't know the location, yet.  We should determine this upcoming week.

 

Hasta

Pablo

It depends where the NOTSUG meetings are.  I try to attend them when I am able.

Pablo,

How nice of NOTSUG to hold their next meeting on my birthday.  I'm sure that if I am invited to speak there will be a cake with 42 candles on it, no?

Best of luck in all your SAS endeavors!

Hola Michael,

 

You are always on our short list for NOTSUG and SCSUG.  I will continue to push for an invitation.

 

I think we can afford a cupcake with .42 inch candle. :Smiley Very Happy

 

Is that 42 in Hex?  Smiley LOL

 

Hasta

Pablo

Pablo,
Ha; that's good to know, though I was hoping for more frosting than a cupcake can hold!
BTW, 42 in Hex would be 2A. Just sayin!
Best of luck in all your SAS endeavors!

I wonder if Pablo meant that when you gave your age as 42, you were already representing it in hex. Meaning that the decimal equivalent would be 66. :0
