I work a lot in Excel at my job and have also been using it extensively to attempt decoding some of the coordinates.

The other day I was working on a spreadsheet and needed to change a formula that was in column P one column to the right. I made the change manually but the result wasn't what I had expected it to be.

I kept fiddling with it, manually changed it back to the original and changed it back again (more than once). I kept looking at it, I mean the actual forumula that said it was looking at cell R5, not just the result and couldn't figure out what was wrong.

This went on for at least 10 minutes before I realized that the column to the right of P wasn't R, it was Q!

At this point I'm surprised I can still sing the alphabet song with my 3 year old and get it right.



OK, now that we've all had a laugh at my expense, back to those stinkin' knots.
