    Apologies. We had to fix a technical glitch with the Big 100 spreadsheet download. If you fill out the sign-up form now, you should get an email with a link to download the spreadsheet, instead of last year’s Big 100 edition.

  2. Chris, Thank you for the update. I just downloaded the Big 100.
