2012 March Madness Bracket is coming...

We're under two days until Selection Sunday! You know what that means, right? That's right. It's almost time for another version of the March Madness Bracket pool manager spreadsheet (and associated participant version).

I've got something new to show you all this year. OOOOooooooo..., right? Well, actually the pool master spreadsheet and associated participant picks sheet both will look and feel and work pretty much like they did last year. The big difference this is that you won't have to email me the "Lock Code" you get when you first open the (locked down and protected) "master" file. Instead, I'll give you a place to enter that code so that it is submitted when you pay the $2.00 via PayPal. Then, when the payment is processed, you'll be taken to a page that automatically generates the associated "Key Code" you'll need to put in the spreadsheet to make it work.

How about that? No more waiting on me. Instant gratification! (And, I don't have to struggle to keep up with emailing people codes.) You didn't know I was also a budding web developer did you? In all seriousness, I have a good friend, Craig, to thank for being patient enough to "teach" me a bit of .php. Thanks, Craiggers!

As soon as all of the picks are announced on Sunday, I'll get the files posted.

Talk to you all again in 48 hours or so.
