comment Saving .doc file to .docx file in word 2007 losing the bullet list
@HellScream even your comment is badly written and unreadable, you've actually confused things. Maybe you did deserve -1. His question is doc to docx, and zamzar does that. So despite your comment, your answer would apply to that.

Yes, and I think he should've written the word zamzar in his post. And mentioned what it does. Not just for the sake of the original poster, but for others. Pretty bad answer considering how simple it was to give. But as a solution to this simple problem it's reasonable. But he should also have said some alternative routes covering if it doesn't work, instead of "tell me if this doesn't work".

+1 to remove the -1. you're right he can try converting it through zamzar or through youconvertit and see if it retained the bullet points.

dude, if you opened it in Word 2007 and the bullet points were still there, and you lost them when saving it as docx, then save it as something else and see if they are retained.

comment Adding DDR2 1066MHz to DDR2 800MHz memory
Quality is a silly word though which the OP used to describe RAM speed. 6GB is so much RAM, that maybe less like 4GB, but more MHz may be more beneficial? Also with your second paragraph, if the majority of the time 4GB isn't consumed, then I suppose it'd follow that he'd be best off with 4GB of faster RAM. Though if frequently 4GB is consumed, then I suppose he might want the 6GB slower RAM.

that just links to support pages. I went to some, I see firmware updates and manuals. And the page mentions the generic DOS driver. I don't see links to windows drivers for any cd drives.

maybe it's the SCSI aspect of it that is the issue 'cos any CD drives i've ever used have not needed drivers.

Can you give a make/model of such a CD drive?

have you ever heard of windows needing drivers to see a cd drive?

are you able to boot off a CD from either of them? (just checks that they are able to operate at that stage).

CD drives don't take drivers. This may not be a windows issue. Does the BIOS show them?

comment Batch file for creating files according to the days in a month
What do you mean "There is an excel file for each day of the month" What are the names currently, of your excel files, prior to running anything?

comment How can I make the watchpoints in eclipse show the values of my variables?
Generally though for programming questions, stackoverflow is the place.. sometimes you can try them on here when there's an overlap, as perhaps here, but you get a large proportion of lower calibre responses/comments. Sometimes people will say "your question isn't clear", (in this case you were clear), and if you had asked in stackoverflow, they'd have understood it.

comment How can I make the watchpoints in eclipse show the values of my variables?
Since the OP hadn't posted the answer and they like answers to be posted, i've post it, and the answer is within my comment as you saw..(Adding a breakpoint allows you to see the values in the watchpoints). Your question was very clear, I understood it.

comment How do I open a local file through Remote Desktop?
what would a reverse version look like? I don't get it. A local computer can see the remote computers drives with "my computer". And from remote desktop as you mention, a local computer can in a remote desktop session, see its own drives even while in the remote session. So what is it that is not getting shared?
