How resourceful. I remember that, back when I did IT, I knew a 'code' that could be typed into Microsoft Excel that would open a secret flight-sim type game. It was ****e, but better than the syllabus.

It definitely worked - I remember it well. Sadly I can't recall the code. It involved putting an obscure number into an obscure box and then pressing a few random buttons. Maybe you can find it on Google or somesuch.

Okay, I rummaged through my old journals and found the code (this is for an old version of Excel - 97, I think):

1. Open a new worksheet and press F5.
2. Type X97:L97 and press Enter.
3. Press Tab.
4. Hold down Ctrl-Shift while you click the toolbar's Chart Wizard button (the one with the three 3D shapes).
5. A 3D flight simulator will appear. The mouse controls flight; the right button moves you forward; the left button puts you in reverse.
