Quote of the Moment
"Nowadays men lead lives of noisy desperation."
HOWTO of the Moment
Speaking of noisy desperation...I don't know if this will be useful to anyone else, but I was at a site that was generating some CSV (comma seperated value) data...IE kept opening the content up in an embedded excel spreadsheet, but we wanted it as a downloadable file. Unfortunately we had to edit some Windows settings, here's the procedure: How to make sure windows offers to download CSV not open up Excel in same window...
- In Explorer, Select Tools|Folder Options from menu
- Go to "File Types" Tab
- Select "XLS" from long list
- Click "Advanced"
- Check "Confirm open after download" and "Always show extension",
- unclick "Browse in same window"
