Coffee & Excel

I came to this coffee shop to write a blog post today, but then the owner mentioned she was having computer problems and I offered to help... She said she was having "formatting problems", but the real issue turned out to be using MS Word for tracking expenses... She had created a list of stores and expenses so she could add it up with a calculator but was having trouble getting the rows aligned the way she wanted them. Apparently she's been doing this for two years now... Instead of fixing her formatting issue I introduced her to excel and set up a spread sheet to do the calculations for her. It's a shame automating my photo sorting for blog posts isn't that simple.


  1. Word for expenses? I, um, wow. I just don't know what to say.

  2. I'm back at the same coffee shop this morning and answering more questions... Why haven't PC makers copied the MacBook track pad yet? Using that thing is like going back to the late 20th century when track pads were for emergency use only.
