Factor-based Opportunity Analysis

A few months back I went to a Ruby-on-Rails speed-dating event. I ended up building a spreadsheet tool for myself that a couple people have expressed interest in it. So I thought I'd share it with all of you.

I recently published amp-what.com. I created it to solve a problem I have:  trying to remember (or google) character entity numbers or names. For example, our last project used the entity » (»). Try googling this if you don't remember the name! Now, with this tool, I can just type ">>" and the character, symbol and number appear.

It turned out to be surprisingly fun to play with. I discovered chess pieces, planet symbols, all sorts of boxes. There are a surprising number of icons to play with. What have you found that surprise you?
