10000!! On our way to 20000 Leagues under the sea

Used to do Low Level Designs for Lync deployments using some "crap" spreadsheets and "manual" validations, Alessio challenged me to help him improve his spreadsheet using some VBA and other Excel tricks.

A while after that we decided to make it available online (http://bit.ly/1BjRaCQ) and prepare ourselves for the web criticism and hard reviews.

Well, it was a massive surprise that the number of downloads is still going up, it receives good reviews and amazingly it has inspired another online project. Even Microsoft @SkypeBusiness tweets the tool.

After 10000 downloads everything we change requires more care and planning because the responsibility is bigger every day.

Why do I waste my time doing it? I believe on Adam Grant's book "Give and Take: Why Helping Others Drives Our Success". Givers gain more than takers.

No. Really no. I was not expecting that number of downloads.

Thank you for all the people that help us to improve it and use it.
Thank you @AlessioGiombini for the challenge and hope that we can bring new features soon.

Best of luck on your #Skype4B deployments.
