thank you report monkey(s) #1 = minutes #2 = 6 months #3 = a few days re:360163 i dont see anymore, feel free to go through my old answers and report my abuse. the question came up. Why do you answer so many excel questions? i am on the internet all day. i upload/download/print/ take&make phone calls and do a lot of waiting while im in the middle of all this. so i keep yahoo answer up in a tab in firefox. i have excel in the advanced search box, and yahoo shows me all the new excel questions. i just answer some of the fun ones during my downtime. i've learned a LOT from trying to figure out some answers, and reading other peoples answers. VBA and new functions ive learned and use has saved me a lot of time. Y!A can be educational.

    Has yahoo made any announcements about another Answers format change?

    i had to logout and login twice to get the normal Answers back.

    the red+purple color scheme is an improvement, but its not worth losing the categories and pinned categories. i'll put a pic up with the new on the top and the regular on the bottom...everything below is the same.

    Has yahoo made any announcements?

  • What would I use an old Desktop for?

    I am looking for suggestions on what I can do with this desktop. Its from 2007, so its an Intel Q6600. It currently has Windows Vista and has been ridiculously reliable (with the exception of a burned out graphics card a few years ago). I will be getting a new Surface Pro so I will still have my Windows, and I finally need to get a router.

    Right now my only idea is maybe putting Ubuntu on this desktop.

  • Which legend had the better call?

    Vin Scully – High fly ball into right field. She is gone! In a year that has been so improbable, the impossible has happened


    Jack Buck (Radio) – Gibson swings and a fly ball to deep right field! This is going to be a home run. Unbelievable! A home run for Gibson, and the Dodgers have won the game 5-4. I don’t believe what I just saw!

  • how do i fix bicycle gears?

    i got a hybrid bike in July.

    on the right handlebar, i have 7 gears, these all work.

    on the left i have 3 gears, i have a problem shifting

    i can shift from 3 to 1 ok

    i can shift from 3 to 2 ok

    i can shift from 1 to 3 ok

    but when i shift from 1 to 2.....i get a bunch of clicking.

    like something is not in place. this doesnt seem right.

    i can shift from 1 to 3....then shift down to 2...and it works.

    is the problem the shifter on the handlebar? or the thing directing the chain?

    is there any way for me to fix this?

  • how do i move Outlook 2013 desktop alert?

    is there a way to change where the Outlook 2013 desktop alert shows up?

    right now when an email arrives, the Desktop alert shows up on the top right of the monitor.....this covers up the Close and Minimize buttons on my Windows 8.

    looks like my only option is a basic checkmark that turns it alerts on or off.

    my old Outlook 2003 had the desktop alert show up on the bottom right of the screen. it was a much better place.

  • Will I have any garage door issues if I use 30 inch springs?

    One of my springs broke. It still had the home depot label p730c…its an extension spring.

    The spring on the other side is older (a lot older) and 2 inches longer when laid side by side.

    The garage door is 7 foot tall (8ft wide). and i am planning on replacing both springs now.

    My neighbors springs are 28 inches, and he says I should use p728c or 28 inches. I want to use the 30 inches.

    Hooking them up looks real easy. I had S hooks,l but the new springs come with bent V looking hooks with a bar across it.

    Anyone have any experience?

  • What was the highest rank achieved by a draftee?

    so what was the highest military rank achieved by an American that was drafted?

    my guess was Elvis Presley as Sargeant, but that cant be the highest rank.

  • is there any good replacement for Google Desktop?

    ive been using Google Desktop since 2006....

    all i really use it for is the Index and Search for emails and files.

    Google discontinued Google Desktop in 2011.

    Would the Windows 8 built in search be considered a good replacement?

    or is there another program with the same awesome search functionality as Google Desktop had?

    i can always download and use Google Desktop, but now that i am getting a new computer....i am wondering if there is a replacement thats better.

    any suggestions?

  • What is the best way to align headlights?

    the passenger side looks perfect

    the driver side seems to shoot off to the left lane.

    ive tried standing in front and eyeballing it to see if its straight + level...

    ive tried pointing it at the wall to see if it lines up...

    both ways make it seem straight.

    what am i missing?

    am i reduced to change the bulb at night and drive around til it seems right?

    its an 06 theres a fragile springy paperclip type thing that holds the Bulb in place...i dont want to keep messing with it til i break it.

  • how do i fix loose screws on my back gates hinge?

    the 3 screws that attach the gate to the fence are loose.

    opening/closing the gate loosens the top hinge.

    i can push them in all the way with my finger...they dont stay in very long.

    heres a picture.

    im referring to the 3 screws lined up on the left.

    the sun-damage shows the outlines of an older larger hinge.

    should i find a hinge that size?

    but this current hinge works well when the screws are pushed in

  • Will I have to tell the police I have a dash cam?

    I setup a dash cam. I never needed one before, but I set one up anyway.

    When/if I get into an accident (or witness an accident)….do I have to tell the police that I have a dash cam?

    Will the cop confiscate my camera and take it into evidence? I don’t want my camera taken.

    I am thinking if I witness something, then not mention the dash cam…then i can post it on youtube, and say I forgot about it.

    Or if a cause an accident, just not say anything. Will I get into any trouble if the other person lies, like he claims 3 other injured passengers that weren’t really there….then I say “oh ya, I got it on video”?

    Just wondering what the best course of action is at the scene.
