Just try this (entirely harmless, honest).

open up Microsoft Word, and in a blank document type:

=rand (200,99)

and press enter. (You can vary the numbers just to see what will happen by the way.)

Can anyone explain what this was for, why it would work, what's going on?!? or just a Seattle programmer having a lauch...

It's so you can insert sample text into a document to test the formatting. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/212251/

Being a non-conformist, I want another parameter in the =rand function to allow me to choose my own pangram

Excellent, thanks for the clarification TLMJJ, that makes sense, I can stop being all excited at finding something new (little things, but it doesn't take much).
