comment Working from home: ensuring file security?
@Michael: I'm talking of a situation where I cannot be sure of whether a person using a document at a PC at home is aware/ignorant that their system has been compromised by spyware/malware/rootkit or maybe (if possible) a person who can remotely access their filesystem without their knowledge (maybe while they're not at their system). I'm considering any threat model, except packet sniffing. And yes, since you asked, I'm considering the possibility of someone having physical access to the system (being able to view temp files)

Ok, but I'm considering a situation where the file is on the home disk as a Truecrypt container or a password protected RAR. What would be a secure way of using the file in such a situation? Let's say VNC or VPN can't be used because of poor network connectivity (I really wouldn't want to bring in use of files across a network into this question, as that's not really the question I'm asking)

comment How to find the programming done for cells / worksheets in Excel, to be able to set precision?
Turns out that for question 2, it was because the "Format cells > Number" format was set to "Number", which was why even though the number was 15, it got displayed as 15.00. Would've worked out better if SolidEdge set the field to text instead of number.

comment How to find the programming done for cells / worksheets in Excel, to be able to set precision?
Thanks. In question 2 what I meant was that in the SolidEdge drawing, a dimension is shown as 15.0 in the drawing; but when exported to Excel, the dimension is shown as 15.00 in Excel. I did not want the number of zeros to mismatch. And for question 3, the cell isn't shown as Custom. It strangely is a Number cell.

comment Can I disable the external graphics card without taking it off the motherboard?
Under Video in BIOS, there's an 'Auto' option and 'Onboard/PEG'. The latter says "Use integrated video controller unless a PCI express graphics card is installed. The PEG card will override and disable the integrated video controller". Does this mean that I have no other option other than pulling out the graphics card? Or is there another way?
