We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

We had a promotion day in January in an effort to boost library membership, it produced 50 new members of which only 20 actually borrowed anything. One of our senior managers asked if I could produce a list of those who joined.

"Do you want anything other than names and addresses?"


List produced, no problem.

"Can you let me have the number of times they've borrowed anything?"

"You mean the use count?"

"Yes, I suppose so."

"Are you sure there is nothing else you want?"

"That should do."

List produced, no problem.

"Can you put in there the last time they used the library?"

No, I don't think so.
