Oh god... no... no... no more Facebook. Please...

In case you happened to miss the furor earlier today (or yesterday, depending on your timezone), Facebook officially pushed its Facebook Home launcher into the Google Play Store for owners of a select few devices to muck around with. Early impressions seem to run the gamut, but unless you had the right hardware you were plumb out of luck if you wanted to take Home for a spin.

Well, let me rephrase that: you were plumb out of luck. MoDaCo founder Paul O’Brien worked up a dead-simple way to get Facebook Home up and running on just about any Android device. Long story short, he patched a version of the Home app to keep it from figuring out what device you’ve just loaded it onto and showing you the customary it’s-not-your-turn screen.

All you really need to do is pop into your Android device’s settings and make sure it’s set to install applications from unknown sources (it’s in the “Security” section). From there, you just have to download and install his patched versions of the Facebook Home app, as well as his patched Facebook and Facebook Messenger apps. Already have those latter two apps installed? You’ll have to uninstall both of them and load up O’Brien’s cooked versions in order for Home to work properly.

Persoanlly, I have not seen this issue. Then again, I not a pure Excel Head either. I just fill in the squares with colors to make block men... I then send that to my boss telling him I'm exploring my more creative side. 

I have written about how to share one Excel workbook with multiple users where all the users can work together simultaneously on the same workbook. Sometimes when you’re working on a shared workbook and Excel unexpectedly crashes, you open the workbook again. It works fine but the size of the file starts increasing exponentially.
