It’s not Architecture, and its not construction, but its interesting how you can make such perfect patterns with only the body for a compas, I tried this and even with my imperfect body, I managed some resemblance of a pattern.

I used to use Spreadsheets a lot, I ran a small sales team for a few years and collected sales data like crazy, but these days I tend to use the spreadsheets within Vectorworks, but sometimes its easier to use Google Doc‘s, so I have a few nice little tables I use for say pipe inverts and the like, I want separate from Vectorworks,

So I tend to look at Google Docs and their spreadsheet as a a simple version of the Microsoft version, although I remember using the very first spreadsheet on my first Apple,, I can’t remember the guys who first programed a spreadsheet, but what a gift to humanity. Still I digress, what this post is about is Pivot tables, because if you have a large list of info, pivot table are very useful, and Google do’s now has Pivot table, this is just another nail in the Microsoft coffin. The video below says it all realy, and passing a link to the file is soooooooo much easier than passing the file about and having to update every one !.
