Excel Wrap Text align left

I was having an issue with Wrap Text. Every time it would center to the middle of the text. I wanted it to start with the beginning but not run into other cells.

To do it set the horizontal alignment to "Left" or "General" and the vertical alignment to "Top" and, obviously, turn on Wrap Text.

You will need to adjust the row height as well to keep the spacing regular.

PHP file_get_contents timing out even with set_time_limit

It turns out that file_get_contents looks at max_input_time. So I changed max_input_time=180 in php.ini and set set_time_limit(0) in the page I was working on. All good now.

PSD Thumbnails

The best (free) way to have .psd thumbnails show in explorer ( or clover) is to install this program called sage thumbs:
