comment Why does 1366x768 resolution exist?
Before asking this question, did you do the math to consider that 683:384 is ~16.008:9, so not such a "wild" break after all? Certainly not nearly as much so as 1280x800's 16:10.

It also makes it easy to pillarbox 4:3 applications designed to run well at 1024x768.

comment Get rid of all ##### errors at once in excel
Alt H, O, I is the new access key for this... it seems a bit slower though as for me it takes a few seconds for office to draw the shortcut keys (which it doesn't bother with for the old keys).

comment Is typing %^ into cmd.exe a Windows easter egg?
@AlecTeal Yes, but to do that I have to keep putting ^ at the end of each line. If I type something (with no ^) to the first More? prompt, it executes immediately, but if I just enter, it prompts More? again. EDIT: I've done some further testing with echo which reveals that entering a blank line at the More? prompt puts a literal CR/LF in the command line. Don't know why I didn't run into that yesterday.

There's no guarantee that this executes pdfunite only once

Why does it prompt More? a second time if you don't put anything in response to the first one?

comment How to find Mac Code from serial number of Lenovo G50-70 I3
@vnodkumar1987 The ISP likely only has the MAC address of the user's router - i.e. the device that they actually use to connect to the ISP's network.

comment When do I need a pure sine wave UPS?
Speaking of monitors, I wouldn't power a CRT off of it either. Probably best to be careful about monitors in general.

comment Car charger for a laptop
Note that OP's AC adapter is for 7.7 A / 150 W - significantly more power than either of the ones you found can deliver. If he plugs his laptop into either of those (assuming they have the same plug, voltage, and polarity), there may be bad consequences.

comment Why is HDMI->DVI image sharper than VGA?
"...and DVI supports Electronic Display Identification (EDID)" so does VGA. I couldn't find out whether there is a field in EDID which actually identifies the display type though; do you have this information?
