I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

The grand-daddy of spreadsheets, and still available today in its original glory: VisiCalc Executable for the IBM PC.

Another early spreadsheet was Multiplan, which really was quite advanced for its day, offering linked sheets and other powerful concepts. See A Brief History of Spreadsheets

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. (Helen Keller)
