comment How do I get Excel to identify a country from city list?
If you steal our city names, we get to abbreviate your state names however we like ;)

comment Google-Chrome download rate 700KB/s but total internet speed is 350KB/s
Is Chrome reporting the speed momentarily or for a long period? If it's just showing it for a few seconds, it's likely just a buffering glitch somewhere - Chrome measures "how fast the file is arriving at the destination" now "how much bandwidth do you have?" - they don't necessarily match exactly. Note also that Chrome is not an analysis tool, the speed is only there to give you an approximate idea of progress.

comment How do I get Excel to identify a country from city list?
Take a look at VLookup if you haven't already. Assuming a city is only ever in one country, it shouldn't be too complext. If you have to handle things like Lancaster, Cumbria, UK and Lancaster, PN, USA, however, it's going to be much more complex.

comment Can my landlord access my personal network because he controls the upstream connection?
Good answer, although note that YOU will likely be able to see more of HIS network, if he's not been careful with how he set his router up....

comment Computer shutting down after playing a graphical game
Agreed, the original Core2Duo's were fairly power hungry, and a decent Q6600 system was getting close to marginal with 500w back then. With an R9 sucking even more juice, and no doubt a PSU the same age as the CPU (so 5 years worth of capacity wear), the PSU is the likely culprit

comment Block P2P traffic on a Linksys router WRT54G with Tomato firmware
I'd generally agree with this - a determined user can get around almost anything (I directed all my traffic over DNS while at uni to get around a block)... But techniques mentioned in other answers will certainly deter casual users, or in fact anyone without a significant determination to do it. You probably don't have many of them on a 12 user network

comment I've got a row of laptops that I would like to be identical
Sysprep is a fantastic tool, although if you're only doing one run the time taken to learn it will probably be comparable to cloning the HDD onto each machine, and cloning has less chance of you messing it up.
