October has been another fantastic month since I stared this blog. We had 100k page views, the RSS subscriber count nearly touched 1500. There were 33 posts and 280 comments (WOW). Even our Facebook fan club reached the milestone of 10 members. For a loooong time myself and a friend whom I persuaded to join it were the only members there. So, thanks everyone for your love and support.

You all have been a constant motivation for me to learn & share new things about excel (which is also making me uber productive at work btw. The other day, my boss nearly fainted when I solved something in minutes. So thank you all 🙂 )
