I Love Microsoft Excel
I spent today doing work of all kinds, but ended up devoting most of my time to preparing for my fantasy baseball auction, which is tomorrow. Any more on the topic is best left to this post, written by a friend and co-league owner, about the joys of intensively using math/logic once a year.
I also get to use Microsoft Excel, which is really a joy. It’s nice to intensively like a computer program, as I mostly use a computer to print out words that I lump together. When I’m using Excel (and there are likely hundreds of exquisitely-designed programs that fit this bill), I know that if I work hard enough, I can get a result that is exponentially better than the effort I put in. When I write, I’m just hoping to combine the words that make them greater than their sum; the feedback comes later. Once a year I get the answers.
