London Marathon

<t>Long time no post - I put this down to being otherwise engaged, and (for once) not having much to say. Part of the reason for my disengagement has been that I have been in training to run the London Marathon on April 22nd. I am doing this as a fund raiser for our local children's hospice, who car...

Basel II Credit Risk overview

<t>First post for a while (I've had nothing to say), but I guess this time, I can contribute...The Basel II Framework is intended to provide a more risk sensitive approach than the current "Basel I" accord. For example, under Basel I, a loan to a AAA rated corporate that is collateralised with Treas...

Random number generater for PL/SQL

<t>Can you run anything fast in PL/SQL? It's been a while since I coded anything of any real use in PL/SQL so I may not be up to date, but I suspect your best bet would be to use anything other than PL/SQL to build a table of random numbers then write a PL/SQL function to access them in generation o...

operaion or IT business analysis

<t>IT Business Analysts tend to be involved at either end of the development project lifecycle (or, of course continually if taking a prototyping / JAD approach). Their main responsibility is to define what the system is supposed to do, and ensure that the delivered system does it. Defining requirem...

Simple Interest Question

<t>Put the repayment schedule on a spreadsheet...You know the rate, the term, the amount of the periodic payment, so can work out for each period the outstanding principal, and therefore the interest charged. The principal repayment for each period is the difference between the interest and the peri...

If they are disclosing broken down economic capital numbers, that might help. You could also try making some contacts through this or other such forums (fora?).

computer gear in London

Correction: Dixons is not next to Clinton Cards. It is at the western end of the Cabot Place shopping mall's lower level, roughly under the DLR station. Find Tesco from the DLR stop, and go down two levels.

What city has displaced London. . .

<t>Literary festivals are the thing in the UK now. A town puts up a big marquee, books all the community centres and church halls, then arranges for big name writers and book sellers of all flavours to visit, speak, sign and sell. Hay-on-Wye and Cheltenham are a couple of biggies that I am aware of....
