[Brian Jones(MSOffice XML):Blog] Comment Of The Day

by M. David Peterson

Brian Jones: Open XML Formats : Spreadsheet performance - Shared Formulas

via a comment to the above linked post, Biff (unfortunately I don't have a link (Biff, if you happen to read this and have a preferred link, let me know and I will update this post)) has this to say in regards to the first quoted piece from Mike:

"Since this blog is about the so-called power of Xml and associated API, how do you achieve this without a running Excel instance?" -- Mike

Perhaps invest in better coders? This appears to be very sensible and straightforward optimization, not rocket science by any stretch of imagination. C'mon, do you believe every user out there must suffer from performance drops because your coders cannot get their act together? Bleh.

I have to say that I totally digg someone who can say it like it is...

Folks, software development is not an easy task. We all do, or at very least should understand this, right?

Thanks for taking my comment, and Biff's subsequent out-of-context comment, also out-of-context. It's funny having those conversations.

Surely the link must read: http://blogs.msdn.com/brian_jones/archive/2006/05/29/608512.aspx without the apostroph :(

This is the second significant time the spellchecker has taken a bite out of me. Thanks for this... will get this fixed now.


What is the context? The way I read both your comment, and Biff's follow-up suggested to me that his comment was quite legit. But it wouldnt be the first time I was wrong, so by all means... Explain what you mean. I'm not worried about being wrong... If I am, I will make it known.

Thanks to both of you for the follow-up :)
