comment How to install pkg in a non-standard location? (OS X)
@slhck: I need instructions for how to do that; the ActiveState website does not offer a source version of the package. Maybe the source code is contained inside the *.pkg archive, but I don't know how to extract it, etc.

comment How to disable Empty Recycle Bin confirmation dialog?
+Thanks! It turns out that at the same site there's a link to a recipe for doing what I wanted to do. This recipe does involve installing additional software (nircmd.exe, free) and modifying the registry, but it gets the job done.

comment Is it possible to have “no active cell” in an Excel spreadsheet?
@Indrek: I'm well aware of the "XY problem" meme, but as a matter of principle I choose to treat the asker as an adult who knows what he/she wants, and who is perfectly capable, if the situation warrants, of adding to the question remarks like "I'm not sure if this is the right way to solve problem X, feel free to suggest a better approach", etc. Absent such an invitation, attempts to tell me what I "really should be asking" is just condescending and insulting. (BTW, I'm perfectly aware that most of the world sees these matters differently, no need to remind me of it.)

comment Is it possible to have “no active cell” in an Excel spreadsheet?
@Iszi: I originally described my question as "useless trivia" in the hopes to forestall comments and answers that want to know why I want to do what I'm asking about (I happen to find such questions infuriating beyond words). I now see that this idea backfired big time...
