The place where threads go to DIE!!!
Happy Caturday, GN!
The new Star Wars movie looks disappointing:
Hi, Fatwa, and good morning/happy Saturday, GN!
So we are getting “tax reform.” Wow. Yeah. Whoo hoo. Color me underwhelmed.
The Congressional GOP have been spendthrifts just about every bit as much as the Dems for decades. Neither party has advanced liberty or prosperity in any significant manner for many, many years.
On the lighter side: “While an employee slept, SC man made himself at home at Waffle House” (with cheerfully drunken selfies):
I’ve never been to a Waffle House.
Lots of chores today. Yeah, me.
Mrs Sven is stuck on a work problem. She uses a large Excel spreadsheet for forecasting, but for some unknown reason, the workbook grew from like like 2MB to 60MB. We were playing with it last night and even after deleting all content and clearing all formatting, it’s still like 55MB. Lot of google hits as to why, but it’s going to take her some hours of troubleshooting to figure it out or she bites the bullet and recreates it from scratch.
There’s a lot of “stuff” that stays in an Excel workbook, even after you delete the contents -- including revision history and metadata. Microsoft relies more on increases in computer speed, power, and storage space than it does on compact coding.
You’ve probably already tried this, but here it is anyway -- related to shared spreadsheets:
Thanks, Paddy -- yeah, that was no help.
Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
Lot’s going on today. I know I won’t get everything done, but I need to get a good start on a bunch of things.
The front page article in today’s paper about Michael Flynn is from the NYT, so you already know how that reads. I skimmed through the first page of it and saw absolutely no mention of the fact the this single charge proves what a big nothing-burger the whole investigation has been, that if there was any “there” there, that Flynn would have pled to a conspiracy charge.
On the Excel mystery front, it appears to be an external link issue. The google pointed me there.:
1. Rename the file to.zip
2. Open the zip file-folder and review for large sizes
All of the workbook XML files were reasonably sized, but the one holding external links was huge. What that means, I don’t know, but I deleted that file, saved, renamed back to .xlsx and the file size was reasonable without much data loss.
It points Mrs Sven in the right direction…I think.
