Excel Protptyping Templates

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, I co-authored a book with Nevin Berger, Michael Arent and Fred Sampson on Excel Prototyping for Software Makers. Yes, really using Excel as a software prototyping software. It is still a good idea, although the version of excel have evolved so it makes the book not as helpful as it once was. Nevertheless, for some people look for a simple fast prototyping tool Excel is still attractive for some.
There even seems to be renewed interest in our book: http://www.amazon.com/Effective-Prototyping-Excel-Interactive-Technologies-ebook/dp/B003FK5PWA/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1391438838&sr=8-3&keywords=excel+prototyping. Unlike the book link on the left this one will make me no money via Amazon, which is only fair since the book is dated and no plans are made to update it.
The problem with this renewed interest in our book is our web site has died a slow painful death. The web site is where we made our prototype templates available.
So to facilitate a place to get these templates, I am posting them right here, enjoy:
If you have any problems downloading post a message here, but please be polite.
Lastly, I am using Google Drive so if you have a problem with the way Google Drive works that's not an issue I can solve.
