comment What exactly is the console session in RDP?
@markmnl, you're right when NOT connected to the console session, and my comment failed to make clear it was about that case (like Nate's "monitor the backup application" example). So, to rephrase: when disconnecting the RDP client when connected to the console session, be sure to select to not log out if you want applications to keep running.

comment Is it sensible to send HTML-only email these days?
For a moment I thought I was wrong in my earlier tests, suddenly seeing a preview text that was not shown in the actual message. But SurveyMonkey is being smart with white text on a white background, only visible when peeking into the message source, or when selecting the text in the message... (And though in this case the plain text "preview" and HTML "preview" are the same text, "Use this area to offer a short teaser of your email's content. Text here will show in the preview area of some email clients.", such was not the case in my tests 2 weeks ago.)

comment Apache mod_rewrite double encodes query string on redirect
Seems that Apache 2.4.10 is still doing this, though it should have been fixed in 2.4.1.

comment How to align column values with their matching value in another column?
As for "Also the values in each column are sorted": that is not true in your example...? (But not a problem for VLOOKUP, when its 4th parameter is FALSE.)

comment How to align column values with their matching value in another column?
No need for any macro, unless you really don't want additional columns. I'd look into the VLOOKUP formula and use extra columns (or a separate worksheet) for the result.

comment How to align column values with their matching value in another column?
Is the screenshot an example of the input and its expected output, or the result of your code? If it's not an example of the expected results, please add that (including edge cases, such as: are the values in the input unique, and sorted?), to explain what your "several columns of data that I need to align with a master column" means.

comment How to reduce the size (disk space) of Windows 8
But it doesn't seem that the above command is telling Windows to not do any hibernation? So when limiting to 50% one should not try to hibernate anymore (for otherwise one might get a BSOD if the hibernation file is too small for the compressed RAM)? Or is your command to be combined with something else to disable hibernation? (Again: not using Windows; just curious.)

comment How to reduce the size (disk space) of Windows 8
Ah, it's compressing RAM contents: What happen if we reduce the size of hiberfil.sys, and, beware: "if the hibernation file is too small then a "Stop Error" will occur and the codes will suggest how much you need to increase the hibernation file size by."

comment How to reduce the size (disk space) of Windows 8
What does this 50% relate to? And if it's 50% of the RAM size, can you explain how things would still work when more than 50% of the RAM is actually in use when going to sleep? Sounds like a dangerous setting to me (but I'm not on Windows).

comment /etc/profile not being sourced at login
Just in case it matters: what are the file permissions? (On my Mac, which is not Linux, /etc/profile is -r--r--r-- 1 root wheel where the wheel group holds system administrators, I think. Small chance that it might not be sourced if, for example, it's writable to others?)

comment Word 2010: Create a Style without a font color
From the days I used Word, I remember behaviour would also be different for text that already had less or more than 50% of some formatting applied. Like if one word was bold or using a specific font, it would stay like that. But if more than 50% of a sentence was bold or using that other font, it might be removed when another style was applied. I don't remember the exact details, and don't remember if it applied to color as well.

comment Is it sensible to send HTML-only email these days?
I've tested, and in February 2015 OS X Mail.app, the Gmail website, Google's Gmail and Inbox Android apps, and Dropbox's Mailbox Android app all use the HTML version (ignoring the text version) to show the first lines in the email lists.

As an aside: it seems MailChimp is no longer mentioning that.

comment Win8.1: how to Get fingerprint sensor EgisTec ES603 to work?
Some weeks ago, EgisTec changed their website, and I've yet to find where their support page (previously egistec.com/en/support/questionlist.aspx) has moved. I doubt they will ever respond to my November 2015 ticket #10261.

comment Particuler website is not being opened in IE
Just to be sure: "I'm able to open that website in firefox and other browser" refers to the very same computer where IE gives the error, right? And I assume other HTTPS sites open just fine in IE? And can't you give us the website URL? Now it's really too specific for you alone, I feel, and that's not what Stack Exchange is for.
