comment How can I produce high CPU load on Windows?
That's the output of creating the script and running it.

comment Mystery Pop-up Window
A wsh which can catch the titles of windows might be more effective. E.g., the titles which would be caught by AppActivate.

comment Mystery Pop-up Window
I should have added that nothing appears on the taskbar. I'll give the script a shot. I'm doubtful only because it's sooo fast and without the icon on the taskbar, the window probably belongs to an existing app. Any screen capture utility would need to record video. This thing appears and disappears within maybe 50ms..

comment Laser Printer Jagged Lines
Good point on the fonts... the graphics are suffering too though. The issue looks far worse blown up in the image above than at scale. I might replace the printer when the toner runs dry. It's time to go for something with built-in duplexing :-)

comment Laser Printer Jagged Lines
To the best of my knowledge, there's no concept of alignment in a laser printer. Not sure what you're referring to in the manual. The section describing horizontal streaks and smears?

comment Laser Printer Jagged Lines
I thought it was aliasing at first too, which is why I tried the test page. The printer is long out of support, I thought I would post the question here before looking for a new printer. - by "printer test page" I mean, pressing and holding the button on the printer so that it prints something from its own program. No computer involved.

I've never heard of this setting in a laser printer. Do you have an example?

comment Is it possible to put a spreadsheet in Thunderbird templates that will calculate?
I just tried it in Office 2010, Outlook accepts an Excel object with a paste-special. I wouldn't use the functionality though, it's asking for trouble for privacy and compatibility. Especially if you're sending stuff like quotes. You don't want the customer to see the math under your quote.

comment How to fully clean hard disk before further use?
Note that the dd command will destroy the content of the target disk "of=/dev/sdb" without warning. Be careful.

comment How can I have paragraph spacing for normal paragraphs, but no paragraph spacing within tables?
For those who wonder the tickbox in English is "Don't add space between paragraphs of the same style" -- totally not an obvious solution, but works perfectly for me. Thanks!

comment Windows 7 Update Dialog Steals Focus
Manual's a good try, but no luck. I'm already applying manually because I sometimes tether and I would never allow Windows to update over my phone. So I manually say "apply the updates"... it sometimes takes 30 minutes or so for updates to apply. It can be a day or so before I actually reboot the machine.

comment Windows 7 Update Dialog Steals Focus
Trouble is it would have already asked once. Unless you stop applying updates, which is a ridiculous thing to have to do to get around this problem.
