comment Excel - how to stop automatic destructive re-formatting of fields on document load
If you just want to be able to process these files and are not committed to Excel you should know that the open-source office suites LibreOffice and OpenOffice both prompt when opening csv/tsv to allow you to control all aspects of how the file is processed. You can set all columns to just be the type Text and do no automatic formatting.

comment Gentoo can't boot on GRUB2
I did a fresh Gentoo install recently and one thing that got me into a similar situation was using a GPT instead of an MBR partition type and then not enabling support for GPT in the kernel as laid out in the kernel step of the handbook. You should perhaps retry making your kernel and use genkernel --menuconfig all to go into the menuconfig and make sure ext4 is enabled and then verify that the GPT or UEFI config is set as the handbook says if that applies to you.

comment Setting a subdomain to access home machine with windows remote desktop
If they are cached locally or the DNS server you use is serving cached entries and the TTL has not passed, then yes you have to wait it out. You should set a really low TTL for that entry/zone if you plan on updating it frequently.

comment How do I set up a proxy server for home with bandwidth control, download limit options?
pfSense is great for a quick and easy setup with a web interface. If you want to learn more, just install OpenBSD and setup pf yourself, it's a lot of fun to learn.
