A Tribute to Clippy

Oh man, this is a blast from the past. Someone was asking me the other day about the built in help system within excel, and said that there used to be a happy little paper clip who always wanted to help. Oh, lord. That guy was horrible, but I’ve got to admit, he saved my skin a few times. Anyway, I guess where I’m going with this is…I’m glad they got rid of clippy. The help files within excel have become a lot better than before too. There still are a few undocumented/underdocumented features, but I feel like the excel help files have improved significantly since the days of Clippy.

Here’s to you, clippy.
