Spreadsheets @ 20

I’m currently celebrating 20 years in the spreadsheet business—that’s 57% of my life, according to Excel. Hooray to my Dad for using child labour (me) to help him with his insurance calcuations in Lotus 1-2-3 on his Toshiba T2000 laptop back in 1988.

    Laptops were not even dancers in 1988 – so much Dan has learned in his 20 years’ of ‘pu’in’. One of us must be suffering the ravages of senility but hey, I’m still working – and that’s 72.3% of my life (to date) and increasing.
