This tab has since moved to Language and Text in OSX 10.8, but this does work. Thanks.

That is the purpose of that checkbox, that's what it's for.

comment How can I stop Excel from eating my delicious CSV files and excreting useless data?
While this would work, trying to explain to someone who speaks only broken English why he would need to use a different office suite creates just as many problems as it solves. Alternative software to M$ Office is all to the good in my own opinion, but I realize that I can't convert everyone.

comment How to migrate from Yahoo Business Mail to own mail server
I would submit that if you are not sure if your email server should remain running 24/7 (it should) that you should talk to a consultant for a one-time solution and some training. My company just completed this exact transition, and it was non-trivial. Get some expertise from someone who's been there.

@nixda Thanks! Those are useful suggestions, especially for the more experienced users. My problem is almost more of a human problem, in that Excel associates itself with .csv files, and people see the icon, and double click (because that's how you open things), and then usually hit Save (because we're always telling them to Save!), and all is lost. But I will definitely use your methods when possible.

comment UltraVNC giving Server closed connection
Except that terminal services locks the physical console of the machine being used, making it useless for training or support where you need someone to see what you are seeing. Use cases make a difference.
