My new work laptop is smaller than any I've ever had. I love how light it is, but hate how small the font is for most applications - particularly Outlook. My Google-Fu is failing me. How do I increase the font size? [more inside]
I was messing about while building a floor on my boat and got distracted by a sunbeam (because I am very easily distracted) and started wondering how much information could be determined by this pattern of sunlight. [more inside]
I am trying to figure out a way to use Excel to take an initial lat/long coordinate and then add a pre-determined figure to create offset coordinate points. [more inside]
and so is iPad. So why can't my Dell Latitude access the free WiFi services? It's showing a list of wifi connections but not the free wifi that both my ipad and ipod can access - in this case it's Free Bezeq.
I've found a lot of folks that promise the opposite. What I want to do is take a csv of lat/long pairs and get back something pairing them with the corresponding city and state. (I'd even take zip codes if it came to that bit that would be somewhat less useful). Is this something easily done?
I'm trying to plot the positions of indoor streetview cameras in x-y coordinates (z not needed.) Google Earth can spit out longitude and latitude (ex: 33 deg 35'3.92"N), and the angle (relative to north) the camera is facing. [more inside]
Which would be the correct way to subtract coordinates that are on different sides of the equator? [more inside]
City latitude, longitude, and elevation. Is there an 'official' method and governmental entity for choosing the point in a city that determines its latitude/longitude and its elevation above sea level? How is/was sea level established?
Is the sun over the yardarm earlier when one is closer to the equator?

Map-plotting / excel filter: I have precise latitude and longitude coordinates in excel for approximately 100-200 different locations. These locations are all located in a certain region of the U.S. What software can I use (free or paid) to populate a nice looking summary map with each of these locations? I need this to look presentable for client purposes.

I would like to take the information from this Wikipedia page (the HTML table parts) and dump it into Excel. I don't need the flags, I just need the latitude, longitude, city name and country. What's the easiest way of doing this? [more inside]
Disabling "touch-to-click" on my Dell Latitude D630 laptop only works for a few minutes. [more inside]
Latitude Filter: So, today is the Solstice (shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere; longest in the Southern), with all its cultural significance, which got me thinking about what's it's like living near the equator, where the days are all (more or less) the same length throughout the year?

A few years ago I had bookmarked a website that had a very plain search feature that allowed you to search names of all sorts of geographical whathaveyou and gave a table complete with longitude and latitude coordinates. I believe this site was US-centric (might have been USGS but I looked and failed) although it was possible to search for anything, world-wide. Ring any bells?
Getting "Disk Read Error Occurred - Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to Restart" with brand-new ATA-6 hard drive (this model) on a five-year-old Dell Latitude D400 laptop. Bad disk, compatability issue, or doing something wrong? More details inside. [more inside]

Hi all, I am looking for an website that will let me enter in Latitude and Longitude coordinates from various countries and plot them on a map interactively. Failing that, I'd like a map that I can print out and plot coordinates on with rough accuracy. Thanks!
If I know the latitude and longitude of where I live, how would I find out the name of the place exactly opposite it on the globe?
