Excel links of the week – weekend without wire [Aug 26]
Last Saturday our internet connection at home went off. I called the road runner folks hoping to getting it back up, but no luck. We were told to wait till Monday evening before the service personnel could restore the connectivity. Thankfully, we didnt feel all that bored and could spend lot of time talking to each other, playing cards, watching some old dvds, taking lengthy walks inside our apartment community and cooking great food.
What would you do on an internet free weekend?
Here is a list of very good excel articles I found during last week:
