comment Weird symbols on Mac
For those on a Mac: the Unicode input is hidden between the input sources for languages. On an English Mac OS X that would be somewhere between Ukrainian and Vietnamese.

comment Force web address to go through HTTPS
Ok, then changing the hosts file should be possible, though it feels a bit awkward. If you currently don't need to use some company proxy (and don't mind paying some bugs), then using Charles Web Debugging Proxy like Matthew suggested should be fine as well, if your Twitter applications indeed honour such proxy settings. (And it might be preferred as it would probably not break the certificate chain when explicitly using https, though DeleGate could probably also be run as both a man-in-the-middle HTTP-to-HTTPS gateway, and a normal proxy for applications that use it.)

comment I'm getting a 403 Forbidden after accessing a password protected directory
I assume you're saying that nginx does not need an encrypted password? Or do you imply that encryption is not a requirement for you? (If nginx expects encrypted passwords in that file, then it will never find a good match if the password is not encrypted. And that surely seems to be the case, according to the documentation. See my updated answer.)

comment Thunderbird: moving email from local Junk folder to IMAP folder yields “Message contains invalid header”
@Peltier, though you already wrote the problem only occurs when the spam filter puts mail in my local folder, can you please confirm that it really only appears for the Junk folder, and not for other local folders? (The article in @harrymc's answer boldly states Thunderbird adds invalid mail headers to it's local folders, which seems to apply to non-Junk folders as well.)

comment Thunderbird: moving email from local Junk folder to IMAP folder yields “Message contains invalid header”
What's interesting in that article is its statement Thunderbird adds invalid mail headers to it's local folders. It does, however, wrongly refer to the KB article Peltier already found, which is about If you import a folder from another email client. The script Removes ">From" and "From " lines from mail headers but Real "From:" lines have a colon and are not touched. So, this answer seems a good solution, but before applying it I'd still want to see the headers from the mbox-file. For example: I'd want to be sure that each message still has a "From" as its very first line.

comment Best way to remove leading zeros from a non-numeric value in Excel
Wow! Some minor notes: Ctrl-Shift-Enter (Cmd-Shift-Return on a Mac) creates an array formula. Paste the formula as usual, but rather than Enter hit Ctrl-Shift-Enter to save it. It will then show between curly braces. In OpenOffice.org on a Mac, I could not drag down the formula for the next rows (as it would yield some super array formula then). But copy & paste does work, so I'm sure there's some shortcut as well. And OpenOffice.org does not know FINDB; using FIND seems to work as well.

According to superuser.com/questions/42060/hosting-a-wifi-connection it can be done. Apparently the question now is: how?
