Preholiday Carnivals

The Carnival of Personal Finance is up on Political Calculations. I love the sortable table to present this week’s entries. I may have to “borrow” that design for some of my projects.

My article discussing the phases of going private transactions was featured in this week’s Carnival of the Capitalists hosted at Coyote Blog.

A new carnival rolled into the blogosphere this week that is particularly interesting. I didn’t even notice the new Carnival of Investing until this evening. I guess I didn’t get the memo. This first issue of the Carnival of Investing is hosted by Retire at 30, the founder of the Carnival of Investing. I didn’t spot any value investing articles or stock research reports this week, but I hope to fix that deficiency next week.

    You’re more than welcome to borrow the sortable table design! The program code is available at The Daily Kryogenix and a copy of Political Calculations cascading style sheet for the HTML table design is available here.

    Two things you should know: 1. You’re better off creating your own copy of the cascading style sheet to link to (or incorporate into your blog template.) This is because the Geocities link will max out for high bandwidth use, rendering the table useless for up to an hour. 2. Using a delimiter (such as commas, spaces, periods, etc.) in large numbers presented in the table will trip up the sorting function, giving you unanticipated results. In other words, you’ll need to present numbers like 74785 instead of 74,785, making better readability a cost of having the ability to sort data in a table.

    Hope this helps!
