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

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.

And that review was brilliant! ;D

I was just amused until that line

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
