Amusing Excel 2007 Bug

27 September 2007 9:23

Now for a program that deals with calculations this is pretty, well, rubbish!

In Excel 2007 when you multiple 77.1*850 you’d expect 65535, but, due to Microsoft’s genius calculating ability the result of =SUM(77.1*850) in a cell is 100000.

Here’s the official spiel from the MSDN Blogs site.

Hmm.

Zimki Is No More

25 September 2007 11:04

So Zimki announced themselves at FOWA 07 earlier in the year and their pre shaved yaks drew much attention however it seems they are no more!

We regret to inform you that the Zimki service is to be withdrawn and therefore will no longer be available from 24 December 2007. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.

One of the first things that will be disabled is the token usage section so unfortunately you will be unable to view your realms’ usage (code, bandwidth, storage etc.). You will still be able to create and manage your realms, and realms will not be suspended for exceeding usage restrictions during the close down period.

As of 24 December 2007 all applications and data remaining on the Zimki service will be deleted and the servers decommissioned. Users are advised to move their applications along with any associated data before the closure date. There are no plans to opensource Zimki.

We hope that Zimki has helped to increase your knowledge and understanding of the possibilities that utility computing and an online application framework can bring. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest and support with beta testing the Zimki service.

last.fm have launched an audio fingerprinting tool to allow them to clean up meta data. Pretty good idea I think. If you’re a last.fm’r go help ‘em out.
