Borland's Quattro Pro should be mentioned among the early spreadsheets. It is still around in the Corel WordPerfect suite (WordPerfect...there's another blast from the past...)

Football clubs are crap clients. They expect special treatment because they are household names, but won't pay for it because most of them run at a loss.
I recall one club, some years ago, who used our software to print the match tickets on a dot matrix printer (yes, they were hard up). This was quite noisy, and the person in charge of printing thought he would just leave it to print a few thousand tickets. In his absence the printer jammed, and friction started a fire. Luckily it was noticed before it did much damage. Our software got the blame, naturally.
