The "right" blue in excel

May be I need to take a chill pill but are you guys also under the impression that the right "blue" to use for inputs on the models should be the 2nd down, 3rd on over from the right on the "More Colors" hexagon?

Call me a old-timer but why the fuck doesn't excel have that blue as a main color.

Are we talking about filling cells or just for the font? Because then, am I the only one who thinks 0/0/255 looks too antiquate for filling cells? I prefer something less rough on the eyes like 0/102/255

He's talking about some mods macro that you can download and assign shortcuts. I don't like this because I don't trust the security settings of those macros. Who knows if they have viruses and stuff. Also the corrupt the excel file sometimes and crashes. You should be able to do all that with excel shortcuts or hotkeys.

Have macros that do the blue, green, and red automatically.  The amount of time it saves you is awesome, until you think about the amount of time automatically coloring text in Excel saves you, then it gets horribly depressing.

I come from down in the valley, where mister when you're young, they bring you up to do like your daddy done
