Here’s something useful for a Friday. Occasionally I’d like to add a quick chart to a report (to show, for example, how A is bigger than B), but to be honest, I can’t be bothered to fire up Excel and put some data in, just to produce the chart. It’s all a bit of a chore, and Excel graphs have never been that easy to manipulate. Enter the nice people at Google, who have launched a free Chart Wizard for just such occasions. Select your chart type, add the sizes for each element, and it’s instantly put online for you to reference or download. Very nice. As you can see, if we have Stuff and Even More Stuff, then it’s unlikely that we won’t have More Stuff. There’s something to think about.
