What can you do with Excel?

Jeff Sandquist has been sending me these links about the crazy things you can do with Excel besides... well, Excel stuff. This is certainly no replacement for an Xbox 360, but count me impressed.

Excel Music Synthesizer - EMS allows you to use Excel as a full music synthesizer. Just plot your notes on the staff in your spreadsheet, pick and instrument and hit play. The 92k Excel template comes with four songs; Amazing Grace, Pachabel's Canon, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and the Star Spangled Banner.

Excel Pac-Man & Space Invaders - Also available for the Excel console system - Pac Man and a 192k version of Space Invaders.

ExcelGames.org - There is actually a domain that hosts a number of different Excel games including Battleship, Bejeweled, Berulex, Blackjack, Breakout, BubbleCell, Connect 4, Golf Stats, Mastermind, Maze, Minesweeper, Numbers Game, Reversi, Rubix, Square Poker, Stones of Power, Sudoku Solver, Tetris, TexTwisT, and Video Poker.
