comment How to apply Conditional Formatting based on previous cell value?
@Scott +1. Here is a great use case for this - imagine having to compare multiple columns of the table, highlighting those that are bigger than their left neighbors. This can get pasted as a format and work out of the box, none of the other ones will.

comment How do you insert MPEG-2 movie into PowerPoint 2010 presentation?
@edelwater Thank you, tried it - all required codecs are installed. This is not surprising, after all -- the MPEG video did play fine in the Windows Media Player, without codecs, this would have been impossible...

You could write a script that would kill and restart the task every 2-3 hours.

Or perhaps it loads configuration once (at startup fo sorts) and you updated your profile afterwards?

comment How to make citations in a word document superscript?
@Rory You are right, perhaps the only way then is to create your own style and format all citations that way... At least when you want to change it, only 1 place of change will be required. Sorry to be of no help...

comment cygwin Xserver losing connection
