comment What is a UFR II printer driver and why might I use it in preference to another type?
I've been looking for a good driver for a big Canon ImageWriter 3225. Canon's Generic PCL 6 would not let me use the 11x17 paper in the bottom tray. Based on this superuser question, I tried the UFR II driver from the same download page. It is way better. It knows the exact printer model and its paper sources. It has more features too. You can to two-step printing: you can print to a preview area instead of the printer and see how it will come out, then send it off to print. You can also do some editing, like combining pages.

Maybe they will fix this one of these years, when Skype crawls out of its permanent beta.

comment Skype - How to disable the comfort noise?
Skype does generate noise. There is noise which goes away when you stop and re-start a call, so it is not explained by ambient noise or analog hardware: it's a bad codec state.

comment Right parenthesis on keyboard is not working, zero below works fine
I did Ctrl-Alt-Delete, then dismissed the full-screen dialog which comes up, by clicking Cancel. The problem went away!

comment Right parenthesis on keyboard is not working, zero below works fine
It's only happening in the native Windows dialogs in various applications. It's not affecting keyboard handling on a VirtualBox image running Ubuntu, in which I can type the parenthesis. This is something at the higher level in the Windows event queue.

I'm just seeing this issue on a Windows 7 system. The 0 key works fine. Both Shift keys work fine as modifiers for other keys. However, shift-0 does nothing.

comment Serial Terminal with custom colors
Problem is, the host system has to add those to its output. I suspect Nickolay may be looking for something that performs lexical coloring based on scanning the received data.

comment What stops an internet router from sniffing my traffic?
Routers have to "view" your packet in order to verify checksums, to pull out the headers to make routing decisions, to rewrite addresses (NAT) and to modify the TTL fields.
