Blissful Ignorance

I just discovered the Autosum button in Microsoft Excel.

I have used this program for over ten years, and only just found this function.

I am speechless.

(Well, all right, so I’ve been using it for databases of words and sentences all that time, not numbers. But still. You think it’s something I would have tripped across before today, when I needed to add a column of figures and didn’t want to pull out my calculator.)

Monday Morning, With All It Implies

It’s gloomy and overcast today. See how I am not drawing a parallel between the weather and the fact that it is election day here in Quebec.

I voted. I have never been so disinterested in an election before.

I have no idea what I’m working on today. I may open random in-progress files until I find one that looks interesting.

On the bright side, despite the two massive snowstorms in March, the snow has almost completely vanished, with a curious lack of commonly associated runoff.
