comment Keyboard layout “preview”
Is there a one-to-one correspondence from keys on the keyboard to kana? I'm not very familiar with it, but in my limited experience, Japanese is typed by typing a romanization of the Japanese word, which the software then translates to kana.

comment Creating an Excel range out of disjoint cells
Thanks for the info. And yes, each row is actually the sum of a month's deposits and withdrawals, with zeroes as necessary.

comment Creating an Excel range out of disjoint cells
The 'Deposits' column is only money I've put into the account. Money that the account earns on its own, i.e. interest, investment returns, dividends, and the like, shows up in the 'Balance' table. I can manually do it by putting the negative of the balance at the bottom of the 'Deposits' column, but was hoping for an automated solution.

Thanks for the info. A logging fake WAP might make an interesting DD-WRT project...

You're right, it does. I've voted to close and move to SuperUser. Oddly enough, that doesn't carry any more weight than any other vote to do so.

comment Multicolor IR camera?
Nope. Get a remote control, and look at the front of it with a digital camera; you'll see a white flash every time you press a button. There's no reason that IR would show up as red; light stops being 'red' once you stop being able to see it, which happens at about 700 nm.

comment Multicolor IR camera?
Actually, my early work was with Wii remotes - I'm moving to cameras because Wii remotes have a very narrow field of vision and a limit of four distinct points. I was hoping for an additional ability to distinguish points.

comment Multicolor IR camera?
I'm playing with motion tracking; I'd like to put multiple LEDs into the scene and track their position with a camera. As I mentioned, my current LEDs show up on my current camera as a blue-tinted white, so it's not unreasonable to hope that other wavelengths might show up as other colors. I was hoping that someone had experience with this or knew of a good camera for doing it.

That did it, thanks.

I suppose I could just buy a whole array of them from Digi-key for $20 or so, put them in a line, and see what the camera sees; I wouldn't mind a better solution, though.
