The only significant announcement in this month's Power BI update is the introduction of error bars to line charts (at least in preview). To give you an idea of what's coming in future months we've unearthed two separate Microsoft sites giving planned new releases for Power BI: May, July and September look like being busy months. And fnally on the subject of Power BI, Marco Russo of sqlbi.com (the people who wrote DAX Studio) has just announced a new Power BI add-in called Bravo, which we preview here.
The COVID crisis has caused worldwide shortages of many resources, including the semiconductors which keep so much of the world's transport and industry flowing smoothly. Now it seems that the global hardware shortage has split over into software, with the supply of Excel worksheets particularly threatened. This timely blog looks at the implications of this new supply bottleneck.

This month we're asking you to solve a logic puzzle. Five friends are embarking on diets, but who's doing which diet, and how old/heavy is each? If you answer these questions correctly a 50 pound Amazon voucher could be yours. Last month's winner was Mike Nicholson of IBM, one of 16 people who correctly decrypted the Excel coloured squares to reveal the hidden quotation.
Do cats enjoy Wise Owl courseware? Of course they do - as Emma Howard's cat Atticus proves in this photo she sent us.
