Happy New Year in Excel

Happy New Year! All the best in 2010, and I hope you’re looking forward to the release of Office 2010.
I thought about creating some fireworks in Excel, then discovered that Andy Pope already made some, based on an xy scatter chart. Here’s a screen shot that shows one of the bursts. And there’s no noise, so if your head hurts a little today, the fireworks won’t make it worse.
Andy also has a sample Excel workbook with scrolling text, so you can combine the workbooks to show Happy New Year, and a fireworks display.
