Raising a number to a power in Microsoft Excel

There are two ways to use exponentiation, i.e., to raise a number to a power in the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet program. You can use the POWER(number, exponent) function, e.g., to raise 2 to the power 3, you could put =POWER(2,3) in a cell which would yield the value 8. Or you can use the exponent operator, the caret character, i.e., ^ (shift-6 on a Windows keyboard). E.g., to calculate 2 raised to the power 3 you could put =2^3 in a cell which produces the value 8.

Maximum memory for an HP 3047h Motherboard

A family member said a Windows 10 system she is using for gaming is running slowly and inquired about adding additional memory to the system. I didn't know the model of the motherboard in the system nor the maximum amount of memory it could accomodate. Rather than opening up the desktop system, I checked on the manufacturer and model of the motherboard from a command-line interface (CLI) with a Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line (WMIC) command and found it was a Hewlett-Packard (HP) 3047h motherboard.

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.19043.1766]

Manufacturer     Model  Product  SerialNumber  Version
Hewlett-Packard         3047h    MXL11925F3


I also saw 3047h listed as the "baseboard product" ("baseboard" is another name used for "motherboard") when I typed System Information in the Windows "Type here to search" field and selcted that application.

Excluding a file or directory from monitoring and scanning by Acronis Cyber Protect Home

Because Acronis® Cyber Protect Home Office, which is backup, cloning, and antivirus software for Windows and macOS systems, was prompting a user as to whether Java should be allowed to run on a Microsoft Windows system on which it was needed, I wanted to exclude the Java.exe program from monitoring. The process to exclude a program from monitoring and scanning by that application is as follows:
  1. Start Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office. When prompted "Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?" to allow CyberProtectHomeOfficeLauncher.exe by the verified publisher Acronis International GmbH to run, choose "Yes."
  2. Select Protection, if it is not already displayed.

    Acronis Cyber Protect - Protection

  3. Click on Protection Exclusions then click on Add exclusion and choose either Add file or Add folder depending on whether you wish to exclude either an individual file or an entire directory from being scanned and possibly flagged.

  4. When you select an option, e.g., Add file, you can browse to the relevant locaton and select what you wish to exclude from monitoring and scanning activities.

Protect - Java Excluded

  5. Click on Save to have the application keep the changes you've made.
