comment How do I deploy IPv6 within a LAN using a Debian based router and prefix delegation?
Even though you disclosed it's your blog (thanks for that), please add the relevant details here. To me, in its current form this is still spamming your own blog. (And all spammers should die.) And the link can still go bad, making this worthless for future visitors.

comment Computer turns on fine every day except Sunday. (Maybe due to not using it for a while?)
"I have shut down the computer each day and unplugged it from the surge protector. Same behavior." Just to be sure: so when unplugged for some hours any day, it would still power on fine? (Except for the Sundays, of course, for which then the only difference would be that it was unplugged much longer?)

comment IE: Why does Compatibility View disappear for some websites?
@Ben, it's been a while since I had to use IE, but I think that enabling "Display intranet sites in Compatibility View" would indeed override <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">. I am not 100% sure, but I do recall being very annoyed by not not understanding why pages were displaying badly, so I can only assume that those pages did include the tag then. But then, maybe I did not know about that tag those days...

So, what did a Google search for "Been trying to fix this for months now" get you...? ;-)

comment Redirect :80 to :8080/ui on Apache
Okay... Now that you're fine with exposing Tomcat to the internet directly: did you consider just running it on port 80 then (or use iptables for that part, if you're on Unix and don't want to run Tomcat with root privileges), and deploy the "ui" context to the root? Or use Apache's proxying, stackoverflow.com/questions/17649241/…

comment Recover data from linux from Mac with firewire?
Did you even hold down the T key, jason? (See the Wikipedia article I linked in my first comment, and Apple's (outdated) How to use and troubleshoot FireWire target disk mode.) (@bdecaf, you're very right about the first version.)

comment Recover data from linux from Mac with firewire?
@bdecaf and janson, I doubt the OS matters. Even more: "target disk mode" should even work if the OS is broken, as it doesn't boot the target computer.

comment Redirect :80 to :8080/ui on Apache
Just to be sure: you want the browser to keep the :80 URL, right? (So some forwarding/proxying invisible to the user.) And are you sure "It is acceptable" is not missing the word "not"?

comment Any add-on(service) for firefox to compress incoming data like opera
That's a dead link. Also, in the comments of a related plugin someone wrote in June 2014: "This app no longer works and the website for the app has been down for months".

Do you use it? On wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Janus I read "The Janus proxy experiment has ended".

comment Does IMAP support marking as “read by another user”?
I assume not EVERY message needs to be read by both? As an aside: I doubt there is a solution; as an alternative to flagging you might consider using folders for some workflow.

comment Why does 7-Zip's compression speed lower over time?
As you're saying you're using "Store", then you won't get any compression at all. You might actually be limited by performance of your file system then? (Just a wild guess.)

comment Is there a way to know the location from which an email was sent?
Also, when the Gmail account is read using some app, one might see lines like X-Mailer: iPad Mail (12D508), which might match older messages from (multiple) persons. Not so much when the Gmail website was used though.

Did you read the other answers? Seems to be something that can be solved.

comment What exactly is the console session in RDP?
@markmnl, you're right when NOT connected to the console session, and my comment failed to make clear it was about that case (like Nate's "monitor the backup application" example). So, to rephrase: when disconnecting the RDP client when connected to the console session, be sure to select to not log out if you want applications to keep running.

comment How to align column values with their matching value in another column?
As for "Also the values in each column are sorted": that is not true in your example...? (But not a problem for VLOOKUP, when its 4th parameter is FALSE.)

comment How to align column values with their matching value in another column?
No need for any macro, unless you really don't want additional columns. I'd look into the VLOOKUP formula and use extra columns (or a separate worksheet) for the result.

comment How to align column values with their matching value in another column?
Is the screenshot an example of the input and its expected output, or the result of your code? If it's not an example of the expected results, please add that (including edge cases, such as: are the values in the input unique, and sorted?), to explain what your "several columns of data that I need to align with a master column" means.

comment How to reduce the size (disk space) of Windows 8
But it doesn't seem that the above command is telling Windows to not do any hibernation? So when limiting to 50% one should not try to hibernate anymore (for otherwise one might get a BSOD if the hibernation file is too small for the compressed RAM)? Or is your command to be combined with something else to disable hibernation? (Again: not using Windows; just curious.)

comment How to reduce the size (disk space) of Windows 8
Ah, it's compressing RAM contents: What happen if we reduce the size of hiberfil.sys, and, beware: "if the hibernation file is too small then a "Stop Error" will occur and the codes will suggest how much you need to increase the hibernation file size by."
