  1. Hey guys, I have a persistent problem with Microsoft Excel histogram that drives me crazy. I will have a row of data that represents a row of choices from a survey. (In the attached example I have marked them 1-5 for Very Unsatisfied to Very Satisfied, sometimes I do Strongly Disagree to Strongly Agree, etc.) When I use the histogram function in Excel 2016, the program never sets the bins correctly, and trying to set them manually doesn't work either. I want bins of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and for the bars to represent the counts of each. But Excel will automatically give me numbers like 2 - 2.74, 2.74 - 3.48, etc. I try to set bin width to 1.0, and it only gives me three thick bins labeled (2,3), (3,4), and (4,5). I try to set the number of bins to 5 and it gives me bins from 2 to 2.26, from 2.26 to 3.2, etc. See attached images. I'm pulling my hair out and would love advice.
  2. Hey guys, I'm traveling to Amsterdam the week of Thanksgiving. I don't feel the need to have phone service. However, I do want to have my phone with me so that I can check my email when I have WiFi, such as at the hotel. If I bring my phone with me and have it on in the Netherlands, will I be charged some exorbitant international rates? Or would that only happen if I bought a SIM card specifically for that? I'm on Verizon if that makes any difference.
  3. Hey there, I've gotten a kink in the coiled (telephone-style) wire of my beloved Sony MCR-7506. The kink is very high up the wire, close to the cans themselves. I've tried to untangle it a dozen times but only make it worse and then have to work to get it back to the original problem. I've attached some pictures. Anybody got a technique? Thanks.
  4. Hello, I used the search function but was unable to find someone with the precise I'm having. I have an HTPC I built running on an AMD A8-3850 APU in an ASRock Mini-ITX board. I use an old 720p Philips HDTV running through HDMI as a display, using the chip's onboard Radeon 6550 for graphics. I've never had a problem using it for watching Blu-Rays, streaming, and doing light emulated games before. I was running it on Windows 7 without issue but got annoyed enough with the Windows 10 nag message to upgrade. The update went fine, except that since then the sides of my screen are cut off as seen below: (Sorry about the image quality.) I can change the resolution to something that shows the entire screen, but then I'm losing screen real estate to black bars. People who have reported a similar issue in the past have been told to update their video drivers, but I've done that with no luck. I'm baffled as to why updating my OS would create this problem. I can't afford to get a 1080 TV at this time. Any advice would be helpful.
  5. I wouldn't say that at all! I'm upgrading this month, but for right now I'm still on an ancient Core i7 920. I've had it for, what, 7 years now? And I've been OC'ing the base clock from 2.66 to 4.2 for the whole time without issue. I don't at all doubt that OCing does make for extra wear and tear on a CPU, but many chips have been seriously overclocked for years and years without failure.
