comment Full File Path in Reference to Another Workbook in Excel
@Josh Per the faq: "You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face" Unless there's actually a problem caused by the program functioning in this manner, the question becomes one of design choice - a question that nobody on this site (unless they happen to be a Microsoft employee involved in the process) can reasonably be expected to answer in truth.

comment How to edit FF passwords without extensions (directly in FF config files)?
Passwords which need to be retrieved, such as passwords saved in Firefox, should be stored encrypted. Presuming this, there is not likely any way you can directly edit them outside of Firefox's built-in mechanisms or a plugin which is granted access.

comment How to force Windows 7 to ask for a “fresh” IP address from DHCP server?
Fire up a VM or another box and set that to statically take over that IP? It might be more helpful if you could describe the issue you're really troubleshooting.

You could wait for the lease to expire, or try shortening the lease time to expedite the expiration.

You may want to look at getting a TechNet subscription if you'll be doing this sort of testing regularly.

comment How can I ping a range of IP addresses simultaneously
@WilliamHilsum Perhaps AngryIP is the better program, but NirSoft is corporate AV friendly. Important for when you don't get to control the AV's whitelist.

comment How to sign a Windows batch (.bat) file?
Re-write it as a PowerShell script, and sign that? I've never heard of signed batch files, myself.

This sets off some Antivirus signatures for "Potentially Unwanted Program". I suggest using NirSoft's PingInfoView instead.

@allquixotic So, does that mean you're practicing "security by obscurity"? ;-)

@allquixotic I was writing while your answer was posted. Though, I was wondering why we don't see much of you over on Information Security.

comment Can my university trace my Internet usage from a private computer?
@Ramhound I don't think the answer here is addressing using the University's Internet connection. The only connection to the University mentioned here is the type one is likely to do from their home network, such as checking webmail or an online classroom interface.

comment PowerShell loads much slower than CMD; Can the PS startup be optimized?
I've experienced this with every system I've used PowerShell on. Most times it's about a second delay or less, but sometimes it is longer. I haven't put it to a stopwatch yet though, this is just how it feels. In any case, it's still noticeably slower to load than CMD.

comment Is it possible to have “no active cell” in an Excel spreadsheet?
@Excellll Very close, though this is referring to manual user interaction where the proposed duplicate is asking about scripting. Not sure how much of a difference that will make since your proposed duplicate doesn't have an answer yet.

@kjo Would you agree that my edit effectively expresses what you're looking for, or are you trying to fix a different problem? If the latter is true, I apologize - please feel free to re-edit.
