Excel calculates only after clicking save? (solution)

Today I’ve experienced, again, the problem with Excel that it was calculating formulas only after clicking save, not while entering data. As it was pretty annoying I’ve googled the solution, it was for some ancient version of Excel, but I was able to adjust it to 2010 version. Here you go: 1. Go to **Formulas **-> Calculation Options. 2. Set it to Automatic. It switches to manual if you open Excel file where somebody set it like that.

Good beginning, the middle, but the end... (Hunger Games, possible spoilers)

At first I must admit that I haven’t read the book. I wanted to as it was recommended by a lot of people whose opinion I value. But the way it’s written is not acceptable for me. Narration is in first person in present time. I’ve considered audiobook for a while, but decided that I even can’t listen to it. Anyway, to my rescue movie was released. I don’t know how much it’s basing on book, but I believe it’s pretty much it.

Fix Battlefield 3 activation issue (Origin)

I’ve recently bought Battlefield 3 and had rather unpleasant opportunity of playing with Origin. Maybe it’s because I’ve bought my copy from third party, not directly from EA, but I’ve had problems with activation. And not only with that. After installation game didn’t want to run at all. But a restart of OS helped here. When I’ve finally launched the game I’ve received such message. Unfortunately Enter Product Key gave me nothing, so I’ve spent more than an hour searching Internet for solution.

Free domain hosting

Many domain registrars (or at least the ones I’m using) don’t provide domain hosting. So you’re unable to create any records for your domain, you can just change name servers for it. In most cases it’s fine as most of hosting providers gives ability to manage DNS records, so you just need to update name servers in your registrar control panel. Sometimes however it’s not enough. For instance if you want to use your domain in Office 365 you need first verify that it’s yours.

Is fb.liox.eu safe?

I saw following search phrase in Google Analytics “fb.liox.eu is it safe” for my site. I’ve checked it in Google if you can learn anything about it from other sites and as I’ve expected, you can’t (my site isn’t too popular after all). So let me try to answer it. I know that I wouldn’t be objective as site is mine, but I’ll try to reply as best as I can.

Maybe you'll save some money (ezPDF Reader)

Recently I’ve bought ezPDF Reader as I was pretty frustrated with the way Adobe Reader is navigating through PDFs. I’ve bought full version, because I’ve thought why not. It’s cool to add some notes from time to time and it’s not so much more expensive than Lite version. There is one glitch however. When I’m opening PDF which was scanned (not created from real text) in Adobe Reader and zooming it, reader is trying (and usually succeeds) to smooth the text.
