comment Can my university trace my Internet usage from a private computer?
@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.

@allquixotic Did you read the original question? The title may be a bit more separated from the text now, but the intent of the question remains the same. The original question was just poorly formed. (Title now fixed, too.)

Sorry, but this site is not meant for "useless ... trivia questions". That said, I do see some use for the latter part of your question. More particularly: Is there a way to set a "default view" for a workbook, that is independent of the last "active cell" at the time it was saved? I do find it annoying to open a workbook and find it already pointing to some odd location or sheet, or having some weird filter, that the person working on it previously had just used.

comment What is the modern day equivalent of Firesheep?
@Sirex is correct. And StackExchange, sadly, is not yet one of those sites that have switched to full SSL.

comment Cannot install Guest Additions on Windows 7 host, Windows 8 guest
After you hit "Install Guest Additions", and before you unmounted the drive, did you check the Guest system to see if it was reading the ISO? Windows 8 may be set by default to not perform AutoPlay/Autorun, so you might have to manually run the setup after the ISO is mounted.

comment How to find which channels are supported by my wifi card?
Short, non-technical answer: If it's bought in the U.S., it probably only supports 1-11. Elsewhere, it may support other channels. Check Wikipedia's list of WLAN channels to get a general idea of what is legal to use where. If you use a channel in an area where it is not legal, and your device causes harmful interference to licensed users of that spectrum, you may end up being tracked down by the local authorities (i.e.: FCC in the U.S.).
