It’s ok? Some add-ins and functionality don’t exist. Also, I don’t think macros work because they run on something related to VBA, which isn’t supported on mac


You can install Windows on Mac and run your regular Excel.

I’ve worked on Mac and Windows as a heavy Excel user...I loved my Mac for everything except Excel. Shortcut keys will be different if you boot camp and clients are pretty much all on windows machines sooo for work I would go with compatibility even though I prefer the Mac hardware and UI.

Merry Christmas! Time for a special taste. 20y Glenfarclas 105. Thick mouthfeel and sweet, tastes like a heady bourbon with an overlay of peat. Lots of spice and a high ABV is really noticeable. Evaporates in the mouth, leaving behind spice, pepper, and tobacco.

I want to work remotely, but am needing ideas for what to put on my resume. I’ve been an RN for 15 years and have worked mainly in hospitals: med surg, and some work in LTC, SNF, ALF, hospice. I have a year of teaching nursing students in clinicals and labs, and some lecture teaching. Also, I have done regional advising at a call center for 7 months. Just how to put this on a resume to “sell” myself seems challenging.
