Some of the fonts used in the sheet look like sh*t when viewed in, or printed from, Excel v.X
I, like some others, asked for the password. Wolvie said no. That's cool. It's his creation, his decision. Calling people thieves is a bit out of line, especially when it isn't yours to start with.
First off, there was no implication in what was stated. If you took it that way I am soory, not intent was meant. I was just restating an opinion that others have stated on this very post sometime ago. Again, if you were offended, I appoligize and will remain quiet reguarding my opinions on any topic on the forum from now on.
Gobbo, just for future reference, I don't respond well to the word steal. I got angry, and I flamed you pretty hard, and didn't really have to. I don't remember anyone posting a similarly worded sentiment from earlier. That aside, I want to say thanks for the apology. And, offer my own for being a bit harsh in my retort. I let my anger get the best of me.
Back in college, my roommate and I had a PC in our dorm room. I would use it to work on my stories. I was looking at a literary review that had been published by the English dept, and one of my short stories was in it. Not with my name on it, either. The name was of a guy who lived a few doors down from us. I wasn't an English major then. In fact, if I hadn't been leafing through it for a poem that my then-girlfriend wrote, I wouldn't have noticed it. I asked my roommate if this guy had used the computer, he said that he thought so, but that it had been a while.
Well, I was madder than h*ll. I was ready to go down, and bust his door in, and beat the sh*t out of him. My roommate calmed me down, and I came up with a better way of dealing with it. I took my story notes, and an earlier copy of the story, and I went to the head of the English department. Suffice to say, the person in question was dismissed from the University.
So forgive me when I don't take the word steal well. Especially as it pertains to intellectual property.
