XFD!
...it's the last column of Excel.

Silly MS programmers... always hiding Easter Eggs.

XD is an emoticon for being absolutely hilarious. Over time, the emoticon became transcended by the phonetic, so "ecks dee" actually became synonymous with "hilarity". It was no longer an emoticon but became a word/abbreviation (like OMG or WTF).

Naturally, it evolved more. To show more hilarity, people started saying "ecks f***ing dee", thus the abbreviation of XFD was born.

The Internet is weird.

Apparently, the programmers thought it was hilarious that you got all the way down to the end of Excel.

RE: XFD!
xfd is also a file extension. Tongue

Just thought I'd say...

I had always just seen XD as a face, I didn't know it broke into being a word that someone can use. Tis news to me.

RE: XFD!
Thanks for explaining.

I once set up a call logging system with four options for "urgency" for which the agents only needed to select the first letter...

Critical
Urgent
Normal
Trivial

Amazingly, no one ever noticed.

Less than a minute. I just wheel clicked over and it started flying by.
