Microsoft is too busy putting crap into their programs to actually add some 
useful and functional code once in a while.  If you've got Excel 97, try the 
following and you will be amazed at what Microsoft has stuck in the code you've 
got running in your computer. No wonder this stuff is called bloatware!

(1) Start Excel 97 (on a PC) and open a new blank work sheet.
(2) Press F5 and type X97:L97 in the "Reference" box, then click "OK".
(3) Now hit the tab key once (you should end up in cell M97).
(4) hold down "Ctrl" and "Shift" while clicking once on the "Chart Wizard"
icon (the one at the top with the blue-yellow-red bar chart).

Move your mouse and press the two mouse buttons. You can exit back to the 
program by pressing "Esc".

Harmless fun you might say, but why the hell would you want all this useless 
extraneous code taking up space in your RAM and hard drive?
