comment Disable Excel 2013 cell animation
@ivarni I would consider that worthy of a new answer, or at least promotion to part of the main answer. Very helpful.

revised What is the maximum allowed rows in a Microsoft Excel .xls or .xlsx
Adding proper link to the 2003 specifications (which also doesn't work very well, but better than dead link)

comment What is the maximum allowed rows in a Microsoft Excel .xls or .xlsx
MS doesn't seem to have the 2003 and before specs anymore, but on Wayback you can sort of get to them... web.archive.org/web/20080313035725/http://office.microsoft.com/… for example (I edited that in).

comment In Windows 8.1, is there a way ensure a process is not the first to get killed when running out of RAM?
Sounds like you need explicit memory management in your application then...

comment Why does the “>” command in a Windows console not redirect all messages to a file?
What's the difference between 2>&1 from your answer, and 1<&2 from the link? I've always seen it your way, and the other way makes sense also (just redirecting "input" instead of "output" but otherwise appearing the same), but it's interesting to see the second choice.

comment Is “HKLM” an alias for “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE”?
It's also a mostly-unsourced Wikipedia page, so take that for what it's worth (probably accurate but no better than a SO or SU page realistically, and perhaps worse).

comment What does fCK (RAM memory speed) stand for?
(I suppose you can argue Mb denotes 1,000,000 bits, if you prefer, and Mib would be 2^20 bits; in memory language 1 Mb is commonly used for 2^20 bits, and in any event is irrelevant to this specific issue.)

comment What does fCK (RAM memory speed) stand for?
Mb commonly denotes megabits, or 2^20 bits. MB denotes megabytes, or 2^20 bytes, or 2^23 bits.

Mb not MB, from the text of the question.

comment Are computers with more RAM potentially faster if not all memory is usually in use?
I find your answer tautological. Yes, the 'maximum speed limit' of the CPU is the CPU's maximum speed. Good show. However, from a practical standpoint, compared to a PC with only sufficient RAM, a PC with excess RAM will perform somewhat faster.
