One New Thing: Thinking simply.
I went to sort data in Excel today the same way I approached it a few months ago – by hunting around for Excel macros on the web, that I could use to remove whole rows of data which contained a particular value in one column of the row. After a few minutes of searching, and realising that the code I had found would need to be edited and that was going to be beyond my macro-programming capabilities, I sorted the whole table of data alphabetically by that one column and deleted what I didn’t need in a few gigantic chunks. It took about 30 seconds. ;)
