Excel keeps proving problematic for me...I guess studying and practice would amend that. Working on Excel in class certainly helps, though. I find the program reminds me very much of math class, especially the word problem portion of the course. The problems confound me, until the answer or method is revealed and explained, then it all makes sense and appears easy.
In technology news, it seems as if the popular trend in professionals working ever more with portable electronic devices has cost businesses millions due to Repetitive Strain Injuries, or RSI. This reflects the designer's and developer's failure to take into account the importance of ergonomics when conceptualizing and building computers, laptops, and the like. The immense loss due to injury leave hopefully will prompt businesses to urge their suppliers consider the stress poorly-designed keyboards and phones cause, and perhaps even re-evaluate the hours of the standard workday/workweek.
