Up until now I'd been quite happily using Microsoft Office 08... Then I opened Excel to start logging some information. Just a simple list is all.

It crashed. No reason. I wasn't asking it to do anything clever.

It started up again. Annoyed that the last few minutes work had gone, I carried on. It crashed again.

Then like something out of GroundHog Day I carried on adding the data. It crashed again.

Then just because I like a laugh I tried again. And it crashed.

Next time I thought I'd try and catch it out and after the first data entry I clicked save. It crashed.

I did a quick check to see if there are any software updates. Nothing.

Come back Numbers. All is forgiven.
