I hate Excel - The Paranoid Android
...musings of a mechanically depressed robot...
I hate Excel
Ok I was stressed yesterday, and I made a long rambling miserable post about nothing .. it's gone.

Today I'm pissed off.

I have spent the best part of 2 hours working on a variety of spreadsheets when excel decides to have a fit and disappears from my screen, leaving nothing but a nice little button telling me it's "OK".

It is NOT fucking ok... OK?

I need to go take a long walk...

Current Mood: pissed off pissed off

Save regularly, my friend. Either that, or shout loudly at your PC, cough, and smile cheerily around the office :)

I know ... save ... I'll never learn.

I did shout ... and it was not polite ... and there was people looking at me in a funny way for a while .. but they'll get over it.

I'm now halfway through redoing it all again - but saving after almost every change. :|

Okay... so little story about technological follies. The head of my department at the Uni, is possibly one of the most profane and techno-illiterate people on the planet. To best illustrate it, I present for you the time I walked down the hall to his office, hearing him cuss and yell at what I assumed to be another person in his office. Once I peeked my head in the door I saw him holding his printer in front of his monitor yelling "What the fuck do you MEAN you can't find the printer, it's right fucking HERE!!!".

I laughed.
