RUTR 2008

Roll Up The Rim season is upon us again, and, as is my wont, I’ve started a spreadsheet, to tally my winnings.

My spreadsheets are getting cooler and cooler with every passing year: the first year I used Excel to build it, with a nice pie chart; the second year, because I was in love with OpenOffice—not that I’m out of love with OpenOffice now—I used Calc to create my spreadsheet; this year, I’m using Google Docs to create my spreadsheet. (Actually, Google Docs allowed me to import the Calc spreadsheet from last year, so all I had to do was modify it for 2008, instead of creating it from scratch.)

At the end of the year, instead of posting my chart here—or maybe in addition to posting it here—I can simply link to the spreadsheet online, and you can go and check the math yourself. (Because, again, I know my readers—they love checking my math…)
