### Need Help With Excel Formula; IF and NULL

So I'm trying to run a formula that checks to see if a cell has data or not (value or null), and if it's empty it leaves the totals cell empty as well (Null). But if it has a value, it then SUMs all the needed cells. http://members.cox.net/christopher_m/NullChart.PNG Now, I have a few products that ...

Just for clarification, I don't believe Netflix does HD streaming of movies. Microsoft rents HD movies through the Live Marketplace, which doesn't require a Gold Level membership, but you have to buy Microsoft "points" to use for payment. To use the Netflix through Microsoft tunnel, MS req...

### Re: Building a MicroATX server

Sorry for not getting back sooner, testing has been delayed for a bit, so no real stress tests as of yet.

I'm not against Windows Mobile, in fact I'm interested to try it. My biggest concern is web page rendering. Hitting pages not formatted to run for mobile devices bugs the crap out of me when I can't navigate them.

Phones I've looked at, the Blackberry Curve, Samsung Blackjack II, and the Pantec Duo.

I'd prefer them more if they didn't make themselves off as retelling the story, as in order to fit in the time limits, they have to cut 20-70% out depending on the book.
