Mr. Charles Hernandez, US Tour Manager for the Rolling Stones
chose C I Corporation from the other consultants in Washington DC,
and called for help from Rick Shaddock and Frank McLaughlin,
while in Washington DC at RFK Stadium named for Robert F. Kennedy, 
(who was a starting End on the 1947 Harvard Football Team)
during the Stones' 1994 World Tour for help with the following projects:

Concert Site Database - Microsoft FoxPro fox.jpg (1122 bytes)

Over 200 statistics on 200 concert sites around the world

Developed easy to use database management system to enable Mr. Hernandez to search for sites where
the Rolling Stones could set up their elaborate stage show. Fields included dimensions of stadiums,
seating capacity, entryway height and width, number of electrical outlets within reach of the stage, etc.
Software used: Microsoft FoxPro for the Macintosh, FileMaker, Panorama for the Mac

Database Conversion

Mr. Hernandez had a lot of data in Panorama, but the software did not have the features
and support he wanted.  Rick used Microsoft FoxPro to convert the data in to ACT!

While on the road, it is sometimes difficult for Tour Managers to quickly find qualified consultants during their short stay in a city. This is why the on-line, and in-box lists of Certified Consultants for ACT! and Microsoft products are so valuable.

While working on the computer, Rick and Frank had the opportunity to meet Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ron Wood back stage as they prepared for their concert. Mr. Hernandez introduced Rick as the "Wizard of Computers." When Rick and Frank finished the project, Mr. Hernandez paid them more than asked, and best of all - gave them front row passes for the Rolling Stones concert that evening.
