One more note on this, while it is a nice idea to share your sheet with the GM through this feature it really does not work. Google docs does not support some of the excel features used to put this sheet together, specifically many things the GM has to mess with from time to time that use pull down menues.

You can share it there with others, but you have to work from the sheet I sent you in excel in some spreadsheet program (excel, open office) and send that file back as an attachment. Once it goes to google docs (which will work for the players numerical entries) you can't export it back out and restore the previous functionality.

I will try and resend it, but there is almost no way I can do it tonight unless I can get it done quickly. I did it this way because I can use it on the iPad which, for some reason big, your sheets wont load. Staps do.


Sorry.

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

Hey, you try to talk the IT guy into going up to Windows 7 or Vista and see if you get to keep your head. They like XP and won't move until forced.

I'm still not sold on the whole "Ribbon" thing. Can't blame them with not wanting to go to Vista. That was a fucking disaster. Not 100% on why they wouldn't want 7 other than just being happy with XP, can't blame them.

I work at a bank with 90% of the people being over 50. When I went to web-based email and turned off outlook I had three people crying at my desk about it. Not like complaining but really in tears because I told them that they cannot keep 10 year old email on company computers for liability reasons.

I am lucky I am not using a typewritter.

The two schools I attend dont get rid of XP for two reasons.

Bridgemary: seems to use a cackhanded approach of having all our user accounts over the net and the servers simply can't handle 700 students on win7. Plus the licenses are to expensive (apparently).

Brune park: The Securus system they use for all the local log ins isn't win7 compatable.

I've got a trial of 07 on my PC. When that runs out, I've still got my copy of 03 with my product key :wink:
