The Russians reached the end of Excel
A Twitter user under the nickname Father Golem hand-wrote all 17 179 869 184 cells Excel. It took him two years.
He emphasizes that everything is done by hand without the use of scripts. To fill all cells, the blogger first numbered rows and columns and then multiplies these values. This was done “for sport”, said the blogger from Khabarovsk in the comments to the post.
The result is a file with a table occupies more than 200 megabytes and opens ten minutes. Only Excel is 1,048,576 rows and 16,384 columns.
