Dad Joke Of The Evening

Sorry to torment you with this…
…ok, not sorry….

There’s a cop on the side of the road, checking for speeders. A car flies by and the cop sees 12 penguins in the back of the car. The cop hits his sirens and pulls the guy over, runs up to the window, and says, “What are you doing with 12 penguins in the back of your car?”

The guy says, “I dunno.”

Cop replies, “Well I think you should take those penguins to the zoo.”

 “OK,” the guy replies.

Next day, the cop’s on the side of the road again. Same car flies by, 12 penguins in the back of the car. Cop hits the sirens, pulls the guy over, runs up to his window, and says, “I thought I told you to take those penguins to the zoo!”

Guy replies, “I already did. And now we’re going to the movies.”

A vlog post: Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go is quite the thing right now. There’s stuff to learn with all this.

Not Able To View Tabs In Google Sheets

We had an issue this week of not being able to view the worksheet tabs across the bottom of a Google Sheet spreadsheet. This one was extremely annoying as I couldn’t see the screen of the user in question. Oddly, when I opened up the same sheet, I couldn’t either. But simply scrolling down brought the tabs into view. Didn’t work for the person I was helping, though. So, I poked around the internets and found this discussion in Google Docs Help. There are a couple of things they recommend.

  • if you have the Ask toolbar in your browser, remove it
  • try opening the spreadsheet using “incognito mode”
  • if that works, then we need to disable extensions until we determine the one causing the problem
  • try resizing the browser screen
  • try using Firefox (or another browser. If you’re in Firefox, then try Chrome or IE)

Anyway, I hope you find this helpful. Let me know in the comments.

Update: this came up again today. For this case, the line across the bottom of the Chrome window which pops-up when you download a file was blocking the tabs view. Make sure you close that window!
