Occasionally, from the mind fog of an early morning, a jumble of words makes its way out of my subconscious. Observe:
He has the charisma of a bowl of shredded wheat.
Sadly, Ron Weiskind of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette can lay claim to an earlier rendition of the phrase. Curse you Google… As useful as a simile, as they say.
I had an issue with an Excel program today . A VBA script that wouldn’t die even though I “Ctrl + Break”ed (or is that “Ctrl + Broke” it?) a few hundred times. Normally, I would restart Excel, but I would need to re-run the program for another 20 minutes to get the output I was looking for. Google came to the rescue this time.
This post saved my bacon. “Alt” + “Esc” caused my computer to flash between all of the open programs, but within a few seconds the program stopped its endless loop and brought a welcome sight:
“Alt” + “Esc” is a different/faster version of “Alt” + “Tab” to switch between open applications. It helps to switch between Word or E-mail or Excel or your web browser without having to use the mouse while adding to your geek cred. Less mouse equals more better. True story.
