Useful innovations in Goggle Docs - "Addins"

Introduced for use with Google Docs/GDrive yesterday.

I have used Google Docs as a useful substitute for Microsoft Office applications - but these new "Addins" really add useful macros or extensions to these old applications (so long as you are online/in the cloud).

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad NOT directly involved in takeover of 1979 U.S Embassy in Tehran

When Ahmadinejad broke on to the scene in the 2005 thaw, US President George W. Bush said today he wanted answers on whether Iranian President-elect Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was a leader in the 1979 US Embassy siege as some former hostages have said but Iranians have denied.

Several Americans who were held said they recognized the ultraconservative Ahmadinejad as a ringleader.

This appears to have been DEBUNKED although there is no doubt he was a key student organizer of the revolution - and subsequently he became a frequent public spokesperson for the Khomeni regime.
