comment Excel rounding errors
Indeed you did! If you change it back (possibly without the IEE 754 bit - I know it's relevant to the mechanics, but somewhat tangential to the question), I expect I'd be able to see this as an "acceptable" answer (I mean one I can officially accept - it's perfectly acceptable in the colloquial sense).

comment Excel rounding errors
Thanks for the link. Actually rather than the bit you've quoted (which certainly could be useful for those who don't know about it), I think the first part of the page is the more relevant for the question. It reminded me that values with recurring fractional parts are different between binary and decimal. I'm sure this completely explains Excel's behaviour here.

comment Linux setterm -powersave - error: “cannont (un)set powersave mode”
Thanks for your help. I must confess, I don't understand what is supposed to happen here (redirecting from the console to the setterm command?), but I am seeing a return code of 0 on my device when using your variation of the command. However, it doesn't affect the backlight, unfortunately. Actually I wrote a small C program to send an ioctl() to /dev/fb0 directly and that also failed to work (it reported error 22: "Invalid Argument", although as far as I could tell, I'd done what I should have).

comment Windows 7 CMD: processing folders ignoring those starting with a “.”
@Synetech Sorry I'm in Linux mode - the "." folder is what I meant (of course it's not hidden in Windows). I'll change the title.
