Old school awesomeness!

If you've got a copy of Microsoft Excel try this . . . I'm sure some will think it is another attempt by Microsoft to take over the world but . . .

Download an untrusted excel macro that supposedly plays a game while doing who-knows-what in the background? No thanks. And who codes a game in excel? The internet is full of weirdos. I should know, I'm one of 'em!
