The 24-Hour Rule

June 1, 2014 General Update

A long time ago I was doing some reading on how you write and publish blog posts. One suggestion that helps me is the 24-hour rule. And that is to finish your post and then wait 24 hours before reading it one-last-time. After all, a blog post is going to be public, out there on […]

Excel without a Mac

February 8, 2013 General Update

I sold my 15″ MacBook Pro yesterday and am waiting on a 21.5″ iMac to arrive in 2-3 weeks. So no more adventures with Excel 2011 for a bit. Time to dust off the Dell desktop and reacquaint myself with the “real” Excel. That of the Windows variety. I’m putting Excel 2003 in my rear […]

My Short Hiatus

March 29, 2011 General Update

I broke with my usual posting frequency this week because I’ve been dealing with some plagiarism on my other website.

March 14, 2011 General Update

I bought my first Mac almost 11 months ago and now comes the moment of truth. I need to go on the road and take my MacBook Pro with me, but also need to take several versions of Excel for Windows (2010, 2007, 2003) to validate and tweak an Excel reporting package. Note: Cross posted […]

For taking a picture of myself with some Excel stuff I won a runner-up prize in the Spreadsheet Challenge, which was a $50 VISA gift card AND some books from Mr. Spreadsheet himself. The books were delivered just before Christmas and will keep me busy in 2011. Everyone please have a safe and Happy New […]
