Passing on a request from a couple of researchers trying to collect a comprehensive list of Excel versions and regional settings (things like decimal separators, types of brackets, etc.). If you have a couple of minutes spare and use Excel, head over to their site and download their workbook (the link is a bit awkward to find so I’ve linked it here too). When you click the button it writes the regional settings onto the worksheet then you can then save and email it back to them.

There’s a load of other weird and wonderful things knocking around on the site. Have a look in the Wet Bread section. I particularly like the look of Pong in Excel!
