Row Limit You Ask?

As much as I love Excel 2007 (finally an easy way to save your graphs into templates!), I cannot believe they still enforce a row limit. A "row limit" you ask? Surely not, I mean, it is after all 2007--the years of mandating artificial limits of data sizes are long over, no? Unfortunately not. Excel 2007, row limit=1,048,576.

Um, why?

I'd like to think it's because Excel's dev lead programmed int [] rows = new int[1048576] at the top of the Excel document model.

MyExperience Website

I finally updated the MyExperience website such that it now actually has real content. Although the MyExperience source code has been available for quite a while now at, the website was mainly a skeleton page with broken links. This has been fixed :)

Note that the SVN activity log on the leftside of the webpage is actually live. I wrote a php script to dump the two most recent commits to the frontpage.

Update 10/02/2007: I was alerted to the fact that was a broken link before. I had accidentally left out the "projects" part. Now fixed.

Happy Birthday Wishes From My Niece

My niece is nearly two years old and left this adorable happy birthday message on my voicemail yesterday. Note that the woman who is prompting the "happy birthday" from my niece is my sister--do not confuse the two voices :). I used a myexperience script to record the voicemail audio on a Windows Mobile device.
