    I have a 23" monitor and I cannot read the tree at the top of the page.
    Is it just me?

    Fix it please, Chandoo.

    @Tom & Chatp... that mind-map was not meant to be readable. I will include the mind-map and more in the holiday gift ebook - 50 Excel Tips, which will be released next week.

    Hey, where can i find your book?

  13. Megadren And Testabolan says:

    This is the perfect site for everyone who hopes to understand this
    topic. You know a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I
    personally will need to...HaHa). You certainly put a new spin on a subject which has been written about for ages.
    Great stuff, just great!
