comment Converting Unix Time into Human Readable Format in Excel
+1: I prefer (timestamp / 86400 + 25569) but they're the same thing. Format the field as date/time and you're good to go.

comment Sites loading slowly in Windows, possibly due to DNS?
@gms9884: Do an ipconfig /all, and scroll up to the DNS servers. The one at the top is the first one queried, etc, etc. I see people add new servers for testing, without removing the ones at the bottom.

comment Sites loading slowly in Windows, possibly due to DNS?
@gms8994: Are you just adding the extra servers to the bottom of the list, or are you putting them at the top? Usually when you have the delay, it's because the first DNS is timing out.

comment why do some emails have impossible (past) dates?
@andrew: The entire header is spoofable. Unencrypted email is the definition of insecure.

comment Why is svchost.exe taking so long to run
@synetech: Yea, that's why I thought it wasn't very helpful =P Try using the remote flags on tasklist (watchingthenet.com/…) to view the processes from another computer

comment Why does the progress bar reset multiple times in .msi installers?
In my experience, progress bars don't actually reflect install time. They're only there to let the user know that something is happening, and they shouldn't reboot.

comment Computer does not boot after ram upgrade
Never look for the motherboard on a OEM machine; they tend to change them in mid product line, so it's rarely accurate. Just look up the machine on the manufacturers site, and you'll find the specs.

comment Computer does not boot after ram upgrade
@Calamarius: Assuming the spec sheet is right, yea. I'd trade that 2gb stick for 2 1GB sticks of newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820144151 Kingston specializes in "generic" RAM; their stuff tends to work in most machines. Most places will allow you to return RAM that doesn't work.

comment Corrupt external hard drive - Not being recognized
@blastawaythewall: How can you know that neither the drive nor the case is dead when you can't access the drive? Under normal circumstances, you can't break a drive to the point where it won't be recognized as a drive. At this point, I'd just return it.
