comment How do I enter dates in ISO 8601 date format (YYYY-MM-DD) in Excel (and have Excel recognize that format as a date value)?
It's pretty crazy that you have to lie about your location to get an ISO standard date format!

What about for Excel 2011? There is no box to enter a custom format!

comment Automatically sort music files into folders by album/artist names
It isn't obvious from reading the documentation how to accomplish this. Can you be a bit more specific about how to use Picard to move files into a hierarchy based on metadata?

comment how to resume failed downloads on cygwin
Same problem as @DrDeo - Not sure what you mean "enter in the same local download directory" as I just go with the defaults every time and I'm sure they aren't changing on their own. It does not just "pick up automatically where it left off". I'm just glad I decided to wait until I was back at my desk to retry, otherwise my data plan would have taken a huge hit.

comment Will stopping hard disk when inactive also stop downloads?
@alephzero Can confirm this also was true in Windows 3.1. Source: me, who once tweaked 3.1 to to power down the hard drive maximum battery life on the last B&W laptop made by caching a minimum set of DLLs so disk wouldn't be touched until I hit "save".

comment Switch between windows on Mac OS X?
It's not just muscle memory, it often makes more sense to switch between individual windows and not applications: e.g. when you have multiple applications with multiple windows each, and want to keep one window of each on top and switch back and forth between the two.

alas, this does not work in OpenOffice: "The operation on ../15.pdf was started with an invalid parameter"
