comment What is this window switcher (screenshot) running on Windows Vista and how do I disable it?
I'll check out autoruns. I don't believe it's Switcher -- I did look for this and it doesn't seem to be installed, plus the grey band across the middle of the windows doesn't seem to be a Switcher aesthetic.

comment What is a quick way to stream and live record video to the Internet using Ubuntu?
Basically it just has to make it to an Internet storage location, whether that be in a proprietary format or not, and has to be committing new frames on a fairly regular basis, so if the connection to the local machine gets severed, there's still a persistent copy somewhere that is Internet-accessible containing nearly all of the recorded video.

comment Print quality of text is lower when vector graphics embedded in page
While I'm not the OP, I experience this same issue. I have this issue on two different Ubuntu machines. One prints to a commercial-grade laser color printer. The other prints to a home laser black and white printer. I haven't tried printing on other OS's to see whether it makes a difference. I'd be interested to know whether printers have any intrinsic memory limitations that might cause this or whether it's more likely a driver and/or OS problem.

comment Any reason to prefer video adapter with two DVI ports versus one DVI/one VGA for DVI/VGA optional dual monitors?
@Keltari related question - what if I were to use a HDMI-to-DVI adapter on the HDMI port of a DVI/VGA/HDMI trio card? Would this give me comparable quality on both screens, or would the HDMI-adapted monitor now have different characteristics (for better or worse) than the pure DVI monitor?

comment Can I turn my USB cable into a USB host cable by adding a Female to Female adapter?
This did not work for me. I tried two USB drives, a Kingston and Lexar. Neither was recognized or showed any sign of working (no LED). This is on Android Ice Cream Sandwhich on a Nexus S. Did it work for you? If so, on what hardware and OS?
