Excel Bible

I have been tagged by runner/ultramarathoner StephRuns.

Yes, I know that this is the equivolent of spam... sorry.

The instructions are:

1. Find nearest book
2. Name book and author
3. Turn to page 123
4. Go to 5th sentence and copy the next three to blog
5. tag 3 others

I will ignore step 5 but the results are as follows:

1. There are no less than four books within reach.

2. The Microsoft Office Excel 2003 Bible by John Walkenbach happens to be nearest.

3. Yup.

4. "The exact dialog box that you see depends on the printer. The Properties dialog box lets you adjust printer-specific settings, such as the print quality and the paper source. In most cases, you won't have to change any of these settings, but you should be familiar with the settings that you can change."

5. Nope.

I have to admit, I've never seen this meme done on a non-fic book.
I loathe Excel, though. I know it's great and all but I had to use it in a previous job every single day.

I'm worried about you ... the Excel Bible? Most folks just call me with all their Excel questions. I didn't know there was a book I could toss to them.

Wow, I totally didn't know that I could adjust the print quality and paper source in excel through the printer dialog box! Thank you, John Walkenbach, and thank you, Josh Morphew!!!

I also agree -- it's spam and I fully support your motion to disregard step 5...
