comment How to change username in LinkedIn Outlook Connector
@Scott the question asks how to use an add-on for Microsoft Outlook that connects to LinkedIn. It's not about using LinkedIn in a browser, so it's not appropriate for migration.

comment Can I pre-edit the html of a web page before the javascript is run?
@Synetech hm. Well I'm assuming the user could probably use Firefox just for this one page, but that's a good point.

comment Can I pre-edit the html of a web page before the javascript is run?
@tieTYT I think the question is OK for SU since you were initially asking if your browser could do something, and there could be other answers that aren't programming-related. If you run into additional problems along the way, I'd suggest searching on SO first, and then asking a question over there if you need to.

comment Convert BMP to PNG while preserving alpha channel
Just out of curiosity @Keikoku is there a link to the SVN repo we could see? Thanks for taking the time to provide this information, and for accurately disclosing your involvement with the project.

comment How to ssl-secure mysql connection on Windows XP?
@Thomas your question was undeleted before when you said you wanted to get more attention by putting a bounty on it, but you never did. If you still have this problem and want it solved, please place a bounty on it to get some attention. Otherwise it will be automatically deleted for inactivity again in the future.

If you try from a different local account does the problem still persist?

FYI @wisdom you don't need to put "solved" in the title - just mark an accepted answer (as you've done) and the question is automatically marked as having been answered successfully.

comment If I buy a computer with Windows 8 and Secure Boot, will I still be able to install Linux?
@JohnGiotta what do you mean? If you want to use Windows, then no. If you want to use something other than Windows, then sure.

comment Need access to daughters Skype
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about parenting issues, and is not inherently a technology question.

comment Excel VLOOKUP using results from a formula as the lookup value
Please edit your question to a) not use caps lock in the title, and b) show an example of what you've tried and what hasn't worked. If you have a specific question, we're happy to help, but right now your question is too broad (e.g. "write my spreadsheet"). Include specific formula and resulting behavior.

comment Can a printer print white color?
Yeah it's pretty common on shirts and such to put down white and then put color on top of it actually.

comment Get page count from multiple word documents by selecting them in a folder?
@SnookerFan please don't harass users to accept an answer, and please don't abuse flags to ask moderators to do so on your behalf. The choice to select an answer is entirely the user's; if they don't want to select an answer, they don't have to. I'm sure it's no coincidence that your sudden and intense interest in this user marking their solution is not coincidental. Don't worry about 15 points - just acknowledge that sometimes people don't mark an accepted answer, and your time is better spent writing new answers than begging for a checkmark on an answer from a year ago.

comment Preventing Gigabit Loss due to printers
Please edit your question so that it's clear what you're asking about. I think you were trying to make lists of network devices, but as you can see, everything came out on one line. The editor window has a live preview in which you can see what your post will look like, and you can also read the formatting help. Please remove ALL CAPS as well and clarify what you're actually trying to do.

comment Running multiple OS on a desktop without a host OS
@Ramhound have some humility, and at least read the links first when somebody with an order of magnitude more rep than you answers a question and you think they might not be right.

comment Is it possible to use the IE10 App without making Internet Explorer the default browser?
That's not the question. The question is the other way around: how do I use Chrome or Firefox on the desktop, and use Internet Explorer in Metro mode.
