Ageism

is real

well I bet that’s what those lawyers hope anyway.

I bet you thought it was just me being a grumpy bad loser, but no, its true, no one wants to employ unmanageable grumpy old farts who won’t do what they are told by inexperienced buzzword bingoistas. Or maybe that’s just me??

Talking of which is anyone having issues with pivot table refreshes being slooooow in Excel 2016?

Excel 2016 is breathtakingly slow, I keep having to remind myself it is actually meant to be production code, not alpha. Or maybe my new lapper is not up to the job.

I heard Cray were the only ones certified ‘Ready for Office 2016’, and maybe Big Blue?(The IBM tompooter not the epic Blackpool big dipper ride). Its a big investment just to manage shopping lists…

btw – today I have mainly been doing doing XLM in Excel 2016. Get in!

(Thank you Excel team for your consistently epic backwards compatibility story)

You know you are on the long tail when Google insists on ‘correcting’ your technology.

XML my arse

Cheers

    This is what makes us old farts grumpy to begin with. We’re not just older versions of the inexperienced bingoista – we’re actually experienced and, as a result, get grumpy when we’re forced to go down the same old pothole strewn dead end we’ve been down at least once before. Don’t get me started…

    Speaking as a similarly grumpy old fart, I was encouraged by recent Excel developments. https://xllblog.com/2018/05/27/javascript-add-ins/. The good thing about getting old is you can detect useless bullshit faster. The bad thing about getting old is that doesn’t mean you win a prize.
