comment How to set the default language in Notepad++
I tried that to add some more PHP file-types, but didn't seem to work. :-(

comment Format a number with optional decimal places in Excel
If you need to avoid adding formulas (and probably a new column) to your spreadsheet then Fred's suggestion may be the best.

comment Format a number with optional decimal places in Excel
Why all the complicated INT(LOG... formula? Why not just ROUND(value,2) and format as General?

comment Format a number with optional decimal places in Excel
Yes, both TRUNC(x,2) and ROUND(x,2) will do the job (depending on what kind of rounding method you're after). You then just need to set the cell formatting to "General" and the decimal places will only be displayed if needed. (I vote to mark Droj's post as the answer.)

I'm having the same problem on the Mac. Argh... quite frustrating. Surely there must be a shortcut.

comment Generate FLV video with alpha channel using open source tools
The K-Lite Codec pack is mostly for decoding, and only does encoding to a small number of formats. I don't believe VP6a is one of those.

comment Move Windows XP to a new PC
I don't believe the wizard will transfer your applications, only documents and other user data.

comment Most convenient way to start/stop MySQL on Windows?
You should be able to right-click your shortcut, go to "Advanced" and set it to "Run as Administrator". Then it will do this every time. See 4.bp.blogspot.com/_Sd3kgrxXWzY/TNnEeP5b_LI/AAAAAAAAAn8/…

comment What is the Flash Player performance bottleneck? Not CPU?
Oh OK, I see. Didn't realise that a thread could change cores so frequently, but I suppose it makes sense. So I guess for the best Flash performance you want the fastest CPU clock speed possible, regardless of cores (although Flash might possibly use 2)...?

Flash Player 10.2 (latest stable release) and I think I've tried latest ATI Catalyst drivers as well as default Windows 7 drivers, and both seem to offer a similar result.

Also, I tried running the benchmark SWF in the standalone Flash projector (latest 10.2) and the process hovers around 18-22% of total CPU usage during the Ultra test. Perhaps it is using two threads as you said...

Thanks for your post Mokubai. I would have thought that if only one core was being utilised then the usage graph would be high (max?) on one section. Or are the graphs not accurate in that sense?

comment Build pc with 6 dvi outputs?
Sorry, but how do you get 4 or 6 outputs from the 4850 X2 or 4870 X2? They both seem to be 2-port cards. I think it's only ATI's 5000 series that support 3+ ports simultaneously.

Yep, coneslayer is right. IMPORTANT NOTE!
