In its documents filed this month with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the San Jose, Calif.-based company has not yet specified the number of shares to be offered or the possible size of the offering.

Top 100The preliminary analysis shows that in the Bob Scott's Top 100 VARs for 2015 that 55 of those listed carry cloud products. That's a jump from 44 last year. We'll get into the final numbers later (allowing for last-minute checks for publication next Friday). But the cloud has yet to penetrate the Top 20 firms significantly. Out of that 55, only six are in that biggest group and this seems attributable to the fact that many Dynamics resellers are staying loyal to Microsoft. Twenty-eight members of this year's class carry only Dynamics products and that includes 10 of the Top 20.

King Henry I I have concluded from observing the photos on websites that the primary users of accounting software are very attractive young people. ... Got a recent email from an unhappy subscriber to the Progressive Accountant. "DROP DEAD, YOU SCUMBAGSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I replied, "Which of our Scumbags do you have in mind?" ... One of those endearing moments with your spouse:  My Wife: I don't think our daughter will ever learn to change how she does things. Me: Gee, I wonder where she gets that? On the same theme as the last post: she wanted me to take the recyclables from the back porch to the street.
