Homer’s (the blind man’s) poetry as seen by helmut s.
Yet Achilles is still not sure
about the king and wants him to stand up
before the entire army, swearing a binding oath:
he never mounted her in bed, never once
made love with her, never once did the natural thing,
never once like man and woman …
and he wants her back undamaged.
Achilles out of kindness
thinks a lavish feast in the King’s tents
would be appropriate…
and getting his just desert at last.
Yet the King of the Argonauts is happy to answer Achilles,
by sending the best of the young men to get treasures
from the King’s ships, to bring them what their heart desires.
I watched him working on one
of his scenarios, “The what
will happen if
my monthly tips from waiting
fall below $1000,
compared to a constant
monthly outflow, established
over a three year span.”
While Sophia was waiting for
him to swear his solemn oath,
waiting to catch him unfaithful.
After such easy scenario he tried
a more difficult one,
asking himself on the spreadsheet
“How much money may I blow if I
get paid on a book-deal
x-amount of dollars after deducting
expenses accrued over the past
years for the same project and
considering the payoffs to the IRS?”
He knew that the maximum number of
changing cells in a single scenario
may contain up to 32.
He tried it with various reports
available in the Scenario Manager,
and the Summary Report before using the
scenario within a pivot table too.
32 cents on the dollar
ain’t the right answer…
…TAKE THIS JOB AND SHUFF IT
he played considering food: donuts did
he want or bagels and lox
his big toe staring from the hole in his socks
The CD music prettied her up quite a lot
Sophia upped her volume to all she got
Loud was her sound: A-three-thousand
She was a screamer. Yet sanity returned and
being unmovable provided as much participation
as Sirens or Lorelei. Real boom-boxes were
built and intended to irritate more than
one quiet neighborhood. He fine-tuned there-
fore his blaster, much like every pc music fan,
his hand on her mouse, click, clickety clickey,
mouth and ears open like a young boy at his first
visit to Annaheim, Playland, longing to meet Mickey,
His big eyes were filled with insatiable thirst
…happy about all past successes, he was
seeking his luck with the Solver add-in tool.
A beautiful tool which provided optimization
and resource allocation based
upon specified constraints.
At the Goal-Seek command he planned
to save time spent on trial-and-error
analysis. With Goal seeking the value
varied in a cell he specified until a
formula dependent on that cell returned
the result he thought he wanted.
It’s such a beautiful night outside yet he
obsessed with his computer was
passing the time at the little screen
next to the grey box, punching the
letters and numbers
of an innocent looking keyboard,
seeking answers to questions
…problems he did not have
was he trying to solve, those
were not what product price or
promotion mix will maximize profits?
But such as how can I live
within a budget, which I don’t have?
And he asked himself just how
many nickels does Nancy
need to feed a machine at the Silver
Legacy while entertaining herself
spinning wheels sipping hot chocolate
without winning a dime and kind
of breaking even? He was happy
for now, he decided on a locked format.
To keep kids, which he didn’t have
and nosy people from ruining
his artfully created database,
he locked all access.
He reasoned to allow only
certain formulas and datas
to be entered was not too much.
He activated the locked format
by selecting cell range > Format
menu > Cells > Protection tab > check
box Locked > OK. And
unlocked it > Tools menu > Protection > Unprotect
sheet > select range I want
to unlock > Format > Cells > select
Protection tab > clear Locked
checkbox > OK. And protected
his sheet again using the Protect
Sheet command. If a user now
attempted to change any locked cell,
the message LOCKED CELLS
CANNOT BE CHANGED informed
such user that he had reached off-limits areas.
His gut feeling however was
“Too nice a night to go to sleep.”
His brain tried to tell him:
“You must finish your work!
You must-must-must-must!” And he
created a password made up of symbols
and numbers and letters to protect
everything. So it would not get lost…
…he had no problems, none at all.
