GP 2016 Feature of the Day: OData Service – Microsoft Dynamics GP Community

I seem to be always catching up on GP’s feature of the day, but with the release right around the corner, I really shouldn’t be behind. GP 2016 Feature of the Day: OData Service 

I’ve seen the OData feature and all I can say is Oh DATA! In limited testing the GP team seems to have done a good job of managing security, availability, and extensibility for GP data. I’m looking forward to playing with this more once GP 2016 is released.

Friday Fun: Aaron Fitz strikes again-Couple sues after ‘disastrous’ home renovation for HGTV’s ‘Love It or List It’

The Raleigh couple says they were left with “disastrous work,” including holes in the floor and windows painted shut.

Why is a headline like this funny?  Couple sues after ‘disastrous’ home renovation for HGTV’s ‘Love It or List It’ Has DynamicAccounting been hacked? What the heck does it have to do with Dynamics GP?

From the article: [Bold highlight added]

Per their contract with Big Coat, the couple deposited $140,000 that would be used to pay Aaron Fitz Construction and its subcontractors. About $85,000 was distributed to Aaron Fitz during the overhaul, even though Murphy and Sullivan say they expressed concerns about mediocre reviews seen on Angie’s List.

If you’ve ever worked with GP at all, you’ll know that Aaron Fitz Electrical (Pretty close to Construction!) is the first customer in the sample GP company.

I have “sold” things to Aaron Fitz in The World Online and Fabrikam for years and they almost never pay their bills. Clearly someone should have taken these poor people aside and told them that Aaron Fitz is a fictional entity.

Look, I feel bad for these folks, but at the same time, I’m laughing my butt off. Yes, I have a weird sense of humor, deal with it.
