comment Need two excel windows side by side, on different monitors, in the same instance
From original question: "I can't just open the workbooks in separate instances because I need to make use of features like paste formatting, and all of that goes away when the workbooks aren't in the same instance."

comment How can I give a file a custom icon?
The video shows a context menu with the words "change icon", but never is it actually shown changing the icon. From feedback in the comments it appears as though that feature doesn't work :(

comment Is there a way to force caching of javascript / css with GET parameters?
Well if it helps, imagine I'm polling reddit hundreds of times a minute so that I can be the very first to see when the best joke in the world is posted. I can poll for the actual content much faster if I cache their javascript and css rather than fetching it each time. I know it's not changing and even if it were, I don't care, but I can't just remove them entirely (for instance using adblock) or the site becomes non-functional.

comment Is there a way to force caching of javascript / css with GET parameters?
@Synetech, that isn't even my gaol. I want blah.html?a=1 to be treated the same as another request for blah.html?a=1 and loaded from a cache. w3c specifies that the presence of any get parameter at all makes a query un-cacheable, which is why Firefox and other major browsers don't cache these requests. the v=... in my example is a version number. It never changes. There is no reason not to cached it. I gave an example of software (Varnish) which is configurable to cache requests with the same GET parameters. I'm looking for a similar solution for Windows.

@Synetech I'm willing to set up a proxy server to do this and implement my own rules, just point me in the right direction. I looked at squid too, which is similar to Varnish but used to have a windows port, but that's long dead.
