comment Notepad++ - setup one font for programming and another for txt files
@ADNow: This is still a problem because Default Style applies to Normal Text, which means that every language then has to be set to the programming font... (over a dozen occurrences), and then later, if the programming font is changed, that's over a dozen occurrences to change as well. Have you been able to work around that?

comment What's a good macro recorder for Windows?
There is an excellent macro recorder from Pulover, that is free, fully GUI run, easy to use, configurable, and best of all, captures the recorded macros in the AHK (autohotkey) language so that they can, if desired, be integrated later into an autohotkey script. You can find it here: macrocreator.com

@harrymc: Have you seen Pulover's Macro Creator? That is a standalone program, fully GUI based, automatable, records, and best of all, captures the recorded macros in the AHK language which can be exported for use within AHK. I think this is probably the better option. Check it out here superuser.com/a/420824/153054 and here: macrocreator.com/download

comment Where can I find a macro recorder for Autohotkey?
(+1) - with donation. Thanks for your brilliant work on the Macro Recorder. I was looking for something like this, came across yours, and in a few minutes was able to automate something that would have taken a few hours of tedious effort. Best part is that it was easy to figure out without reading any tutorials -- just a little trial and error. Thanks.

@harrymc: helpful tools such as? Please do elaborate in your answer since as it currently is stated, it's false: AHK does not have macro recorder capabilities. So I'm inclined to agree with Annan.

But interestingly, Jitbit and AutoMacroRecorder are not on the Wikipedia list --- suspect the list is in its earliest stages of being compiled.

Great answer! I've taken the liberty to try to improve it a bit by adding a link and formatting the post.

Since this was basically a "false alarm" why not delete the question then? Prevents someone coming to this question and finding a NULL.

comment How to access Usenet postings from the earliest days of Usenet? (i.e. the 1980s)
@JasonAller: That works! Oddly, the comp.lang.forth.mac gz file only has posts back to Feb of this year. Unfortunate that comp.lang.forth was not there... What partial match did you use to find clfm? My various searches failed to reproduce what you found.

@JasonAller: Neat. How did you obtain the listing? The directories aren't themselves browseable. Is there a search tool somewhere?

@JasonAller: Very interesting! Though identifying which storage file(s) contain comp.lang.forth postings doesn't seem easy to do...

Google groups appears to have them (search for /88 in comp.lang.forth). Could google groups be used as a news server avoiding the awkward web interface?

@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.

comment Fill in Excel template with data from SQL sever
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!
