Faster ppt #Articulate branching with free macro

I'm working on a project that has many many 'hot spots' in PowerPoint that allow the learner to select the correct area of a photo. I the get it right; great I want to jump them to the correct feedback. If the get it wrong the need to get some feedback and another chance. The number of correct/incorrect hot spots vary per slide. I decided to knock out a couple of quick macros to help automate this process for me.

Your business card is CRAP!

I know most everyone has seen this... but it makes me laugh every time.
This guy is sooo over the top.
"It doesn't fit in a Rolodex because it doesn't belong in a Rolodex"
25 years in the making, $4 per card; impressive. Your still a douche bag.

This video proves that WRC is Awesome (far better then NASCAR)

I've been a big fan of WRC for years... One of the best things about living in Sicily for three years was the excellent coverage of WRC events.
This is one of my favorite WRC moments. Marcus Grönholm flips his car a few times, asks fans to put back on its wheels, has trouble figuring out which way to go (after all... he just rolled his car down a hill) finally he resumes the race!

Google uses cool eLearning to introduce Wave

Got my wave invite this morning ( thx @jeffl8n ).
As soon a I logged in I checked out the first 'wave'.
Google embedded a youtube video of a guy explaining how to use wave.
It's nothing fancy (just 2 mins) but I think it is a good example of how eLearning doesn't have to by long and complex to make its point and keep users interested.
I made a screenr of it for you:

Excel Formula

A coworker had a pretty complex spread sheet with several sheets in it.
One sheet had monthly and yearly totals going back to 2003.
She wanted a chart on a new sheet that compared this year's data with previous years.
But only up to the current months data... so August 2009 compared to Aug. 08, Aug. 07, etc
Here is what I came up with:
=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(104,MONTH(TODAY()),4,1,"damages per 1000"))
I am far from an excel expert so I'm proud of it.
Luckily the sheet with the monthly totals is arranged so that month 1 is in col 2 etc.
