I talked it through with a colleague yesterday, and it kept me laughing/grinning all afternoon Grin

Seems like 169 points is the current maximum achievement, and 164 seems 'doable' tellme (Or those guys are just bored with their jobs)

Microsoft also publishes Excel - what some have called the The Deadliest Computer Game of All.

Considering how many real-world jobs, businesses, research projects, sports statistics, lives, and plans for world dominance are 'virtualized' using Excel - and are then acted upon based on the results it furnishes - it's a pretty accurate description IMO.
 Cool

And that review was brilliant! Grin

As a PC gamer, it's nice to see Microsoft skipping the Xbox 360 for once and shipping a PC exclusive

I'm still laughing now
