I'm currently a Java developer and product manager in the financial industry. I am currently working on lots of different projects, but I have focused on high-performance server work and Swing client work in the past. I've developed in multiple languages on multiple platforms, working seriously with PHP, ASP, Unix C/C++, MS SQL Server, and MySQL.

I take a very direct approach to programming. I don't bow to convention simply because it is. Remember that DOS was a standard at one point. Remember that Windows still is a standard. Does it work, yes, I suppose, most of the time it does. I would build it much differently.

comment Set automatic axis limits for bar chart without defaulting to zero
-1 Don't tell us it's bad to do this. I need to do it too for a line chart. Same problem, same question.

-1 I need to do this as well. This is not an answer, it's a lecture.

comment How do I keep my same 4-monitor setup when using Remote Desktop in Windows 7?
I do not know if I have tried mstsc with the /multimon option also. I will try that tonight when I am at home.

You realize that I have no problem with the remote desktop connection itself, right? I have no problem connecting, and it uses all four monitors for the remote desktop. The problem is that it doesn't carry over the positioning of all the windows when I remote in. So they all reset to the upper-left monitor and I have to spread them back out again. It's possible that UltraMon will do this - I have to actually try it to see because it's not listed as a feature.

That's easy enough that I can do it manually. Thanks!

comment How do I get Excel to automatically replicate functions across the spreadsheet?
If I update the top-left cell, I can select it and double click on the handle. This copies the formula to all of the cells directly below, which seems like half the problem. This is still a manual solution, though, and I would like an automatic one.
