Sometime back, someone showed me that if I pushed a subsequent amount of keys on my keyboard (while in excel) it brings up a screen that looks like a flying game. Anyone know what keys those are that you push?

Is this the one you mean. They are called Easter Eggs

EXCEL 97 EASTER EGG


works ONLY with Microsoft Excel 97.

"Run Excel 97 and open a new spreadsheet.
Press F5 (goto command function).
Type X97:L97 in the reference box. Click OK.
Then press Tab. (You should now be at cell M97).
Hold Ctrl + Shift down while left-clicking the Chart Wizard icon on the toolbar.
The flying pyramid game! Find the Monolith with the programmers messages.
Move the mouse to manoeuvre, the right button to accelerate and the left button to decelerate. Exit by hitting Escape."

In order for MS to get some government approval for their software, MS had to remove such hidden gems. I don't know all the specifics, but I remember reading that a few weeks ago.

Also, a great archive of these "Easter Eggs" is http://www.eeggs.com/

They not only tell you about eggs in software, but also ones in DVDs and TV shows and books, music and art. Very interesting.
