Excel didn't crash, but I needed something to bump my frustration with people not closing network spreadsheets after leaving for the day.

Not sure how, but a file got corrupted. It was just data, nothing going on inside. Ah well.

While printing to PDF (using Acrobat 9 Pro) from Word, I loaded an Excel workbook. This crashed Word, Excel and the PDF process. This has not happened again, so it seems to be a typical "one time" Windows event.

Oh man, that was a major my bad. I had copied and pasted an entire Word document a few minutes earlier, meant to hit CTRL+C in Excel, and accidentally hit CTRL+V instead, so Excel tried to paste an entire Word document as a formula and it crashed.

Actually I kicked the power chord for my computer out of the wall. But I had to something, I'm so pissed. A whole morning of SAS process time wasted.

About to run simulation number 24,994 of 25,000 .... nah, let's crash instead!

(To be fair, this was the first time I had tried running 25K instead of 15K, and when it died, it was using 700MB of ram, so it might have been a tad too much data. )
