comment Automatic switching between “digital output” (HDMI) and built-in speakers in Vista
@Ben in my case, I'm plugging in the HDMI "just in time". Both audio outputs (internal speakers, aka "default output", and HDMI, aka "digital output") are always available, even when nothing is actually plugged into the HDMI port. The video part works perfectly -- when HDMI is plugged in the additional display is detected. It just continues to send the sound throught the internal speakers. I think all of the drivers were up to date, but I'll check again the next time I use my wife's laptop and update here if that leads to a solution.

As mentioned above, the problem mysteriously went away, but I've accepted this answer since it seems reasonable... :-)

(Un)fortunately, I am no longer able to reproduce this problem. It mysteriously went away. I've also since upgraded to Lucid.

comment Vim command 'ciw' does not work
FWIW: :ver will tell you the features compiled into vim. It may be that textobjects is turned off in your build.

comment What's the best way to install software in Ubuntu?
I think that 5% number is actually pretty high. I used to install lots of things the "old school" way, but I hven't really had to do that in the last 5 years or so. The Ubuntu apt repositories (after including universe and multiverse) have pretty much everything I've wanted to install.

comment How to open files in vertically/horizontal split windows in Vim from the command line
Indeed, it seems to be something in my .vimrc causing the trouble. If I move it aside, -o without N works as documented.
