    Yes, perhaps she just wanted to talk about the weather......... but there again maybe not! :rolleyes:

  • I think by calling yourself a nerd you are infact insulting us DFW Nerds! :rotfl:

    But I can relate to the satisfaction your spreadsheet/graphs give you. It's the same as my debt sheet. Everytime a payment comes out of my account it gets noted on my document therefore there is a regular decreasing debt total. It's great for motivation.

    What your excuse is though I have no idea maybe other than your a bit sad! ;):p
  • Any chance of a link to the spreadsheet?
  • I have to join you in the nerd corner :o

    No graphs to play with but I do jot down number of views on a thread as it goes into the tip then keep an eye on those numbers rising and rising as more of the email hits people's inboxes.

    I went through one thread about reducing your package with NTL and worked out the average saving per year per user was £65 and once worked out the number of new people joining to say "yes please" for a book Martin was offering!

    Proud to be a nerd :)

    Dear Fran

    I am sitting at home watching a recording of "Maria" from Sat night, with the MSG next to me as we haven't seen it and she says,

    "Hello Fran. I can talk to you about the weather for the next few days, sadly its not going to be that good. After that though... who knows... i work with meterologists; for longer you need a climatologist and they can only give rough estimates..."

    Ah the joys of Excel!

    Have you got into pivot tables yet? If not be warned - you will barely be able to contain the excitement :rotfl:

    (All those rolling averages did impress though :o )

    The early bird gets the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese :cool:
