comment How do I combine data from multiple rows in excel to one cell?
Pretty sure there's a limit to the number of characters per cell in Excel. I can safely say what you are trying to do will exceed that limit. You can try to export it to a CSV file and edit that with Notepad++ to achieve your desired result but I doubt excel will import that into one cell.

comment Automated/scripted incremental backups on Windows
I have an HP MediaSmart Home Server. Once you run the connector software from a device it will automatically set it up for backups. It is possible to configure the backups to not backup some files or directories but the default is to do an entire system backup. It also let's you set how many backups to keep. The best part was the four bays in the unit that allow you to add space but keep all the storage as one contiguous logical drive. This feature has be lost in the newer versions of Windows server. HP has stopped making home servers. Not sure if you can even get one anymore.

comment Laptop screen broken; can't get external monitor working
Many computers will move the screen to the external monitor automatically when you close the lid. You might give that a try.

comment 802.11n/a (5GHz only) access point not visible to my laptop
I believe it is only n that is broadcast on the 5ghz band for routers that support that function. Your issue is that your wireless card doesn't support the 5ghz protocol. You can buy wireless micro dongles that do if you really want to use the 5ghz band.

comment How to change Windows 7 window border size thinner than 1?
You have to go into the Personalization menu. Window Color. Advanced appearence settings. This will pop up a new window. Select Border padding from the drop down box and change it to 0.

comment How to change Windows 7 window border size thinner than 1?
You can actually set the border padding down to 0. I'm not sure how much smaller 0 is compared to 1 but that's the first thing I change whenever I get a new system.

comment Logitech unifying receiver
I have several of the unifying devices but only one has more than one device attached. The best part of these devices, IMO, is that they can be replaced separately - you can purchase only the dongle should it fail or be broken. In the past you had to replace the entire set (both dongle and mouse) should one fail. Additionally, the micro-dongle size makes it much less likely to be broken. I have used Logitech for years because they have the best products and offer excellent warranties.

I have used this multiple times. Best way to get files and settings from one computer to another.
