comment Is there an Excel formula to identify special characters in a cell?
Is there a particular reason you're doing this text processing task in Excel? Even limiting oneself to Microsoft Office tools, it's a fairly simple search & replace in Word. Table with two columns, original filename and processed file name.

comment ITSUMIF Criteria for Cells That Don't Match a Condition
Sort by category, use automatic subtotal. Paste the subtotal lines as values, then resort back by date. If that works for you, save it in a macro.

comment Linux - Set Subdirectory as Root for a user/group
You can set up the chroot environment for the user -- actually, set it up for several users -- and have their initial shell be a program that chroots and execs a real shell

comment Why is linux boot sequence in sh and not in c
@grawity: We could call the text files "scripts" and the C code "the shell" and then -- oh wait, that's how it's set up now. Seriously, what sort of speed up do you think you might get? Bear in mind that the shell will already be read into RAM, the other reasons for keeping it that are mentioned on this page, and the very small performance gain with lots of admin pain...

comment Second root account
Does SE Linux support two-person control? That is, sys admin (root) actions don't take effect until approved by the security admin?

comment Why can't we understand the content of a binary file after compiled?
Compilation or assembly removes lots of human-significant information like variable names, branch labels, etc. Dissasembly get the instruction stream, but you still have a lot to figure out.
