How can I get shit done when you keep inviting me to more meetings?
Or the alternate title, me goofing around with excel instead of doing all the work I should be and am complaining about being overwhelmed with.
But really, the chart design elements in Micrsoft’s Excel 2007 are pretty sharp. They make my data look like Fucking Data, man! I’m easily impressed. But then most of the people who read my powerpoint presentations share that same quality.

    Still rockin' Excel '03 here. Can we vote to make that the new Excel default? If I see one more presentation with a graph with too small labels and a grey background where I can't see the lines, I'm gonna break the projector.

    ARG! Just read Chris Gammell's post over on Engineer Blogs about 2 seconds after this. (link http://engineerblogs.org/2011/01/expections-and-starting-electrical-engineer-salaries/ )

    The chart in Chris's post is clickable. I think he kept it small on purpose to keep the post size under control. Or not…

    Frau: Unlike me, you can't blog while you're sitting in a meeting. All hail virtual meetings!
