Who By Unolytics

Eleventh is a quiet blogiversay; we can celebrate it with a whisper. Dailiness yields to infrequency, ambivalence, monthliness, forgetting. But I haven't missed a blogiversary in ten years, so why would I skip the eleventh?

This time around I spent part of the evening rivaling Is. in a few hands of Uno: deal seven cards apiece, turn from the stockpile until setting down a numbered card, and pick-flip, pick-flip, pick-flip, pattern-matching until someone wins. Until Is. wins, mostly. And we kept track again in a Google Spreadsheet, a why-not? carry-over from the spreadsheet micro-lessons and practice I mentioned the other day--basic stuff like sizing cells, entering data, cascading rudimentary formulas. This is what it amounted to:
