finally: web-based spreadsheets

started playing w/ NumSum today, and though it’s in its infancy, NumSum is just what i’ve been looking for.  for nearly a year, i’ve wanted a web-accessible spreadsheet site so that i could update my excel-based checkbook and finances.  i used to save a copy of an excel sheet on my ftp or gmail, but downloading and uploading was a pain, and there were times when a computer i was on wouldn’t keep my formatting properly.  there was also the issue of privacy, since i do use public computers.

NumSum is a web-based social spreadsheet site.  you can share and tag spreadsheets between users and groups.  you can have them edited by the public, or make them private.  the tagging works w/ delicious.  sweet.

as i said, it’s in a nacent stage, so there are limited capabilities – this is not a web version of excel.  it’s for simple calculations.  i’m sure it will continue to advance, but love it for what it is right now.
