comment Can I disable Google Chrome Autofill ONLY for localhost?
Although "as a developer", don't you want the same experience on your local test server as you would on the live site?

comment What are the .php~ files?
@praveen: You should worry about those files if you accidentally upload them to your live server (as Pekka points out on the other answer).

comment What are the .php~ files?
Notepad++ can also be configured to backup to a custom directory away from your current files. Or you can turn off the backup altogether.

comment How do I get my browser to ignore certificate on trusted domain
"That's less than ideal" - bit of an understatement. This is a serious security vulnerability and is not recommended.

comment How do I get my browser to ignore certificate on trusted domain
"my own dedi" - is this a dedicated server?! If so then you should resolve the cert issue. If it's a shared server then it's common to share a cert across all sites, in which case you can access the generic domain the site is intended for.

comment Why are there two types of Adobe Flash Player download / update?
@Ali: Well that's the thing, I don't know which browser(s) these updates relate to. The prompt to update Flash is as soon as I've booted the machine, before starting any browser. There is no mention of which browser via either update method. The webpage (which has just opened on the Vista laptop) simply states "Your system: Windows, English".

comment Radiation from a UPS
If "there are frequent eletric shortages that harm my desktop computer" then a UPS would seem to be mandatory, any risk would have to be a compromise. This looks like a reasonably unbiased article on the subject: emwatch.com/Computers.htm

comment Excel IF Condition
To change the background color of a cell, you would use conditional formatting, rather than trying to use the IF() function in a cell formula.

comment How to stop Excel 97 from prompting that file was created with a later version
@pnuts: Are you referring to the file format... BIFF8 for Excel 97 - is that what that code outputs? Although if I have already saved it from Excel 97 then the file format has presumably been overwritten although there is still a flag in the file that indicates that a later version created it. I have had a quick look at the file using a hex editor, but I don't currently know enough about the file format to make any changes!

Thanks for the suggestion, although this doesn't work unfortunately. The warning prompt appears before the BeforeSave event fires.
