Excel Links of the Week – Minor Changes to PHD edition
We had a long weekend in India due to Republic Day on 26th January and that means, I have enough time to fiddle with some of the things on the blog design / code front. There are few minor changes in the blog sidebar layout and RSS Feeds.
» The sidebar on the home page features some of the most frequently searched excel and charting topics like top 5 formulas, howtos, charting tutorials. To checkout the featured topics, visit the homepage.
» We now have a page dedicated to people who want to advertise on PHD. Write to me if you want to advertise your products / company on this site.
» The RSS feed address is now http://feeds2.feedburner.com/PointyHairedDilbert not http://feeds.feedburner.com/PointyHairedDilbert. Don’t worry about the change as Google will take care of redirecting your feeds, but just in case.
» If you are one of the 500 e-mail subscribers of PHD, going forward you will receive e-mails from excelandcharting @ gmail.com and not chandoo.d @ gmail.com. Please redefine any rules you might have defined in outlook / mail software to handle the new mail id.
Ok, enough self-promotion, let us take a look at this week’s excel links and articles from around web.
