comment Lock an idle Windows session without Screen Saver
Thanks for the info but, as I said in the question, I'd rather avoid using Task Scheduler for this.

comment Lock an idle Windows session without Screen Saver
@OliverSalzburg While this does use the "screen saver" function, it does not use an actual screensaver. Absent any other solution that doesn't require a scheduled task, I'm inclined to go in this direction. I didn't know that the "display logon screen" option was available with the "None" option selected.

comment VPN Client - Cisco - Cisco Systems on Windows
You can use Shrew for Cisco VPNs as well, so long as you have the .pcf files from your organization's Cisco VPN Client installer.

comment Setting WiFi Client gateway, ip address, subnet etc on linksys router
That may or may not be a configurable option on your router. A real DHCP server would let you configure this, though. Is there any particular reason you couldn't just set up the router as an actual router with NAT (the way it's designed to be), so that your office has its own private IP space?

comment Can I disable the warning when a group policy restricts program execution?
Is there any particular reason for this? Generally, I kind of like users to be told by the computer when something they're doing is against security policy - it might just put a little fear in them to prevent them from trying something like that again.

You could still run DHCP, presuming you won't cause conflicts with other DHCP servers, if you use a limited pool size and address reservations. Set the pool to only the IP space that's allocated to your office, and configure address reservations for all your devices. This way, the devices are being automatically configured while still getting the same address every time.

comment Setting WiFi Client gateway, ip address, subnet etc on linksys router
This can be done by setting up the DHCP server function on the router. Before suggesting this, however, we should know more details. Firstly, what device is acting as a router on the network? Is it a device you control? If it is a device you control, does it have DHCP server capabilities you could use? Is the entire network (between your client devices and the nearest router) under your organization's control, or shared with other building occupants? Are there other active DHCP servers on the network, anywhere?

comment How can I check a system's current NTP configuration?
@Fran That works. I was hoping to get one command that was cross-platform, but it seems I might have to use two different ones - or write a batch file that includes platform detection to determine which command(s) to run.

No good on XP. "The command /query is unknown."

@Kyle I just figured out that net time /querysntp shows the server. Getting the rest of it might be tricky.

comment Only show a formula result if it meets given criteria
Nice idea, but this only really adds to the confusion when I go to review the spreadsheet later on, since the primary function of the cell is no longer represented within itself.

comment Formula to return value from one column when condition is met for the first time in another
@barryhoudini Maybe suggest that as a separate answer, and give a bit more explanation? For example, I'm confused by your use of TRUE as an argument for MATCH. Also, cell references should still be entire columns, like in chris' example - the size of my data set will vary.

Sounds like you're looking for Internet Connection Sharing, or something similar. Search Super User for that term, and see if that helps.
