@gatsby Super User requires a reputation score of at least 50 to get the privilege to comment everywhere (note that you can always comment on your own posts and on answers to your own questions), so get a few upvotes and commenting everywhere will be yours.

comment Find missing entries from a list of sequential numbers in a column?
This works, +1 and tick. However, a warning to all those who try to use this; the calculation are very slow on my 66000-size data set, we're talking several minutes for four cells of array formula to return to me my three missing test case numbers. Still, I'd rather drop the formula and go check my email, etc while Excel chews up a single CPU core for several minutes than do it by hand, so Win!. Also, you can (as I did) do this a cell at a time, instead of via a large range. Given the slow speed, I'd probably recommend this approach.

comment Windows 7: run graphicscard as it's run during safe-mode
Is this a desktop or laptop? If it's the former you should be able to set the BIOS to use the motherboards on-board graphics (presuming it has some) as first priority over a graphics card - although you'll then have to change where your screen is connected.

comment Does Chrome have a quick find shortcut similar to ' in Firefox?
Not quite the same. I believe is the equivalent of a / quick search in Firefox (which searches everything), what the question here wants is how to do a ' quick search (which only searches links).
