Nifty old-school pixel graphics. Works fine in OpenOffice 1.1.

Excel stopped working for me this morning, and I've needed it like ten thousand times today! Is this a freakin' Excel holiday or something!???

I wasted half a day on this a few weeks ago. Being a Canadian, I didn't know a lot of the UK-centric acts, but I tracked them down on the associated web site...which I don't have handy, but will link to as soon as I'm back in the office (if someone doesn't beat me to it). Fun.

K, the web site is at the bottom of the spreadsheet...I'm blind.

There's something amazing going on here. I'm astounded by some of the answers I'm getting right. Whether it's my own half-remembered images of the bands/celebrities, or the skill of the minipops crew in translating people into Atari 2600-quality images, I don't know, but I'm doing far better than I would've thought.

So many names sitting at the tip of your tongue!

Who produced this? Could it be stbalbach?

(stbalbach: this is a great toy, excellent graphics - how were they done?)

It is from FlipFlopFlyin (UK). They had bandwidth problems so posted it on my server. Forgot to "from" the FPP.
