I'm a full time database programmer and occasional all-around coder. Started with dBase II in DOS, used Clipper, Paradox, Access 1.0 through 2007, and now .NET VB / SQL Server / Windows Forms / Developer Express Components. Yeah, I'm pretty old.

comment Why do HDDs suffer from performance loss due to capacity decrease?
Yes, but - a typical drive may have one, two, or three platters. The total capacity isn't an absolute indicator of data density. Here's a post (rml527.blogspot.com/2010/10/…) that lists Western Digital 2.5 inch drives with densities of 160 GB, 250 GB, 320 GB, and 500 GB per platter.

Yes, there is an easier way. You don't need to put the SQL in the VBA code. I will edit my answer to show you how.

comment Need Software to Monitor Internet Uptime
@pinouchon - At $9.95, Net Uptime Monitor barely breaks even considering payment processing, tech support time (free email support), and development time. It's a hobby, not a living! The trial allows you to use the program as often as you want for as long as you want - the only restriction is that you must restart it every 30-60 minutes. The paid version allow monitoring continuously for any length of time without user input.

comment Aligning Numbered Bullet Points in Word 2007
@techie007 - and then every time you add or delete text you need to manually reposition every picture from that point to the end of the document. Your suggestion is a really bad approach to the issue.
