comment Format a number with optional decimal places in Excel
@kmote - That format is incomplete. It will round decimal values above 1. E.g. 2.54 will display as 3.

It turns out it was the accelerometer. Thanks for your help.

I added the downloadedness to the question. As for utilities, I'm still trying to figure that out. I'm a paranoid sort when it comes to these things. :)

clarify that this isn't a wireless issue since the podcast was on my hard drive

It would have, definitely. Unfortunately, it didn't even occur to me until I saw your answer. I always download podcasts - at least the SX one - since I have Firefox's click-to-activate plugin thing on, and it's still a bit glitchy.

This isn't a wireless issue. The podcast is a downloaded file on my hard drive. I mentioned the issue to a friend of mine, and he suggested it may be an accelerometer issue. I'm trying to figure out how to disable it on this machine (HP laptop with a Toshiba HDD - tricky to know which utils are kosher) to test it.
