How To Use Home and End Keys in Gmail in Firefox on the Mac OS

How To Search For ID Values In A Different Worksheet With Excel VBA

This Excel VBA function allows you to take a column of values (e.g. ID numbers) in one worksheet, and use that to get corresponding values that are in a second worksheet.

Logitech K750 Review – Best Wireless Keyboard Review

I was using the Logitech K340 keyboard for around a year. Back then, the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 was not released yet. While the K340 keyboard was great at the start, after some time the keys would get stuck. E.g. I would be pressing down on the backspace key, and it would remain stuck, deleting not just a couple of characters, but the entire line of text. Needless to say, this was infuriating. So I went around, looking for

How To Redirect or Disable BBPress Registration Page

BBPress is a great forum software that integrates nicely with WordPress. The problem is, it’s not as full-featured as the other forum software available. One of my gripes is the inability to change certain options. For instance, if you’ve integrated BBPress with your WordPress blog, then you want to redirect or disable the default BBPress registration page since it’s redundant. Well, there’s no easy, out-of-the-box switch that you flick on and off for this. Turns out that if you want
