comment Make Windows 7 shutdown/restart more graceful
I've just restarted again, the 'problem' seem to be that, W7 does shutdown the apps but only while the UI blocking dialog is up... so if you cancel and attend to the blocking app you then have to shutdown again...and again... I can kind of see what the designers were thinking, it just seems awkward in practise. Why block? why not have a floating window or notification window that shuts down apps iteratively?

But it doesent feel like ALL applications get the shutdown message - it feels like each is sent a shutdown message in order, and if one delays then no other apps shutdown, even though they have no changes to save...

A Trendline can be added to a series - basically a prediction of the data extended beyond the known data. I want to know exactly when the trendline will intersect another series or even another trendline.

Is the equation available as an object then? - Excel calculates the trendline.
