Seeks good SAP Training

The Man is turning the company into an SAP shop. SAP offers training, but I'm looking for third party vendors who offer a better or cheaper option. Specific areas on interest are Portal and BI, possibly XI and MDM. Focus should be Administration more important than end user, but all is of interest. Horror stories welcome, good experiences more so.

What's the deal with cyclists using rollers before 100 mile races?

Good information for a new salesman?

My family owns a small business. We manufacture boxes, which we sell to other industrial clients. We've hired a salesman, but he has no sales experience. (We're okay with that.) We're teaching him about boxes, but we'd like to get him some sort of training in sales. We don't have traditional expectations (we think of the job more as "customer relations"), and aren't going to demand that he meet quotas, but we'd like him to have grounding in the basics. Can you recommend some good books on sales? How about training seminars in the Portland (Oregon) area? Any web sites he should read? Info on how to approach cold calls would be especially helpful. (So far we're just going with the "baptism of fire" approach, which has its pros and cons.)

May the road Powerise with you.

So, I'm taking up powerbocking. As an athletic 31yo male (obsessive biker, reasonable runner, maintenance lifter) with a good sense of balance, how would you current users rate the learning curve? Assuming I put in one or two nights a week over the next six months, might I learn enough to get fluent (if not a little flashy) in time for a certain outdoor event in August? Thoughts, anecdotes, tips, and the like are welcome. (Bonus points to Angelenos who can tell me about nice indoor padded spaces where I can go to practice...)

But what does it DO?

Corporate trainers, I need your help. I need to train some colleagues on the capabilities of an software package to prepare them for designing some upgraded features.

Any suggestions of training books or websites that can help? [more inside]

My cat and I are going to run away and join the circus.

Dogs seem to be easy to train to do tricks, cats, not so. I have taught her to eat treats off the furniture (and she often fluffs that) but not much else. She doesn't respond to commands or perform any tricks on demand. Can you give me hints or tips I might employ to make my cat become a star?

How do you say "quiet please!!" in dog?

One of my dogs won't shut up. He was fairly quiet when we adopted him about 8 months ago after prior owners surrendered him, but several months of apartment living have encouraged him to bark every time someone walks outside, above, near, in, or around our apartment. He has such a high pitched, loud, piercingly painful bark, that I can't believe our neighbors haven't shot him, had him taken away, or even complained to us. Sometimes I can hear him barking from almost a block away, but I DON'T have reason to suspect he sits and barks all day when home alone. [more inside]
