comment How to access Usenet postings from the earliest days of Usenet? (i.e. the 1980s)
@MichaelFrank: I see. Do the retention limits increase if it's text only? (I'm interested in the comp.lang.forth archives) Is it possible to use Google Groups as an NSP to point my newsreader to?

@JourneymanGeek: So this is an issue with the newsserver I'm using (eternel september) and not the newsreader (Agent 7)?

comment Fill in Excel template with data from SQL sever
Ah, missed the link! As a potentially useful summary: If the connection is successful, you'll see available tables > Choose a table. You'll then see an Import Data dialog box. Select how you want to view the data in your workbook... (table, pivot, etc.) > Properties... gives access to the Definition tab where you can write specific SQL the Command Text edit box. Clicking OK will pull back a table to the location you specified, including header row.

Does this not address just one of the two parts? i.e. it describes how to make a connection but doesn't explain how to get the results of the query into a data range in Excel?

comment VLC 2 Frozen / stuck on first frame of AVI video
(+1) for good alternative resolution. Though this would likely not have applied to my situation (I had no audio since my video was created from a collection of images), it's a useful possibility to catalogue. Cheers!

comment VLC 2 Frozen / stuck on first frame of AVI video
@fayyazkl: Hm, UDP is not a format of its own, it is just a protocol for sending data between machines connected via a network. However, it defines maximum packet size, and (typically) does not check for dropped packets or packets out of order (TCP does). You might start by checking what underlying video format is being streaming, and then doing some google'ing to find out how VLC handles UDP streams. Good luck!
