Sure, I went ahead and threw it up on Google Docs. It's ugly, but it gets the job done.
To edit the numbers on there you have to "save" your own copy first (didn't want to make open editing rights in case someone was messing around and screwed up the single formula in the spreadsheet). I believe this requires a google account.
It'd be pretty trivial to set up another that lets you put in in how many years you want to retire and let it solve for what percent income you needed to save. Though that'd be a bit useless, unless you were starting with $0 (or subtracted off how many years worth of savings you already had).
Hope some of you have fun playing around with the SWR, compounding rate, and savings/expenses rate. I know I had some fun last night.
(HEY! I only need a 200% return for 3 and 1/2 years in a row to retire! lol)
Thanks again for the post Nords.
