comment Excel formula to convert boolean values into {0, 1}
Similar to this, =ROUND(A1,0) does the same thing in this context.

comment Excel formula to convert boolean values into {0, 1}
This isn't necessarily more readable, but it is "shorter" than the formula in the question.

comment Does any spreadsheet allow you to create your own functions?
Hehe, same time as you. Looks like you're link is for Excel 2007, while mine is Excel 2003. Good to have options.

comment Convert PDF to mp3
Looks like the online demo has a 300 character limit as well. Working through a large PDF using the demo may not be feasible with that limitation.

comment Email address order
Possibly sort the email addresses alphabetically when exporting from the database. Not sure how the database and Outlook are connected. Any clarification you can provide would be helpful.

comment Run laptop's HDD through USB
You may need to go into the BIOS on the computer you intend to use to change the boot order. It may not by default boot from the USB drive.

comment Java Installation Wizard Constantly Interrupted
When installing, right-click the installer and "Run as Administrator". It's possibly a permission thing stopping the installer.

comment Java Installation Wizard Constantly Interrupted
The installation is running, and Java is acting up. I wonder if something is running. Hold down Ctrl + Alt + Del, and open the Task Manager. Under the "Processes" tab, click the button to show processes from all users. Sort the list by "Image Name". Are there any "java" or "javaw" processes running?

comment Java Installation Wizard Constantly Interrupted
With all the installing and uninstalling, can you open up a command line (Start button, type "cmd", press Enter). Once the window opens, type "java" (no quotes). What is the output of that test?

Are the DSL login credentials configured on the router or the laptops?

The router, it's then connected to a DSL modem? Cable?

comment Wireless router disconnects when laptop goes standby
Have you updated the firmware on the router? You may also want to check for updates to the laptop's chipset drivers and wireless drivers.

comment Firefox: Security concerns of sending referer headers
I think you may be right on the "security-conscious addon". I'm using the Web Developer Toolbar. There is an option to "disable referers" that seems to toggle "network.http.sendRefererHeader". The gotcha is that it does not indicate whether it's enabled or not. Thanks for the tip on what to look for.

comment Website Themes in PSD
Excellent suggestion for sure. I was able to remove the layers I was not looking for in GIMP. Getting closer to my goal. Now, I just need to crop to the layer to remove all the empty space around the layer, and end up with just to the element. I could try to do it manually, but if that could be done using an option in the drop list, something like "Crop to Layer", that would be perfect.
