    Launched a million business plans, sank Lotus... Thirty is a ripe old age, maybe older than a good chunk of Register readers. Even for those of you for whom Excel is a spring chicken, how many applications or even operating systems are you still using of a similar age outside the Office suite? Is Windows 10 the same OS as Windows 2.0? Is that still your grandfather's axe, now that you have replaced the head and your father replaced the handle? Microsoft's legendary spreadsheet software was born in November 1987. Note to both of you Apple-non-fanbois out there, there was...

    A spreadsheet that a man emailed his wife detailing her reasons for turning him down for sex has been shared by thousands of people online. For a whole month, the 26-year-old sexually-frustrated husband jotted down every response from his other half when he asked her for intimacy. He then collated the information and put it into an Excel document before cruelly emailing her as she arrived at an airport ahead of a ten-day business trip.

    Whoops.An apparent error in Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff’s influential study of government debt was the result of a simple mistake in Microsoft Excel that all spreadsheet jockeys fear. Here it is: The cells outlined in dark blue contain the data points that Reinhart and Rogoff used to reach their conclusion that countries with a debt-to-GDP ratio of 90% or higher see average growth of -0.1%. As you can see, they failed to include Denmark, Canada, Belgium, Austria, and Australia. Including those countries—and making a few other adjustments—makes the growth rate 2.2%, according to new research.The Excel mistake could have been avoided with a few simple tricks.As...

    Austerity has become almost like a four-letter word in some circles. Its used to describe policies meant to reduce government spending and debt that may be painful in the here and now -- measures such as cuts to social services, or that lead to job losses in the short-term. A key piece of empirical research policymakers have used to justify austerity measures has been a 2010 study by two Harvard economists, Carmen M. Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff, about the downside of high debt. Well now another set of academics at University of Massachusetts at Amherst have replicated the study. They...

    I have apparently picked up a virus which disables excel. I'm running Excel 97 in Windows XP (ser. pack 3) on an older Toshiba laptop, and suddenly when I click on a different worksheet in a workbook it puts up the little sheet mini icon but I can't move the sheet. If I open a new workbook, and click on a space, it will not 'let go', whether I click on it again or hit 'enter'. Whatever happens, the first thing I do is the last, I can't even close the program using the 'X" at the top right of...

    Microsoft has formed a new group to better its share of the market for the most powerful computers in the world. Its plan of attack: make the machines easier to use. On Monday, Microsoft said it has created an effort called the Technical Computing Initiative focused on the field of high-performance computing, in which dozens to thousands of PCs are lashed together to jointly perform complex calculations beyond the capacity of individual machines. Microsoft has quietly staffed up the group with several hundred employees and is launching a marketing push with a new website touting trends in high-performance computing. While...

Using the traditional coach, teach and mentor approach, the Commandos now control much of their own training and even started teaching classes to the U.S. Army Scout Platoon.

    Advice needed from the Brain Trust: I'm hoping some computer geeks better than I can find an answer to this Excel problem. Basically, I've used Excel to calculate grades before, and that's fine. I usually have 3 exams and I drop the lowest score. Again, that's easy. However, this marking period, I have been informed that I should give a cumulative grade for the first and second marking periods. (It is math, after all, which builds upon itself.) Now, to be fair to the students, I would like to drop their lowest two tests out of the six, not just...

    Users are reacting to Google's new online spreadsheet with a big yawn. Is the company searching for a strategy?... Can there be too much of a good thing? Some Google watchers are beginning to think so. Leading technology bloggers' reactions to Google Spreadsheets, which allows users to build and share simple Excel-like spreadsheets on line, have ranged from lukewarm to hostile. Critics are assailing Google's latest offering for having several technical weaknesses. And, more significantly, they're beginning to question whether Google's long-term strategy in the arena of Web-based software applications is good for the company, for users, and for the...
