comment Why some web pages interfere with my USB speakerphone?
Besides - it only happens with this device connected via USB (it also has a Bluetooth connection, I did not witness the effect).

comment Why some web pages interfere with my USB speakerphone?
This only happens at very specific web pages, while they load. I did not have the ffect for the last few days (did not visit the pages) but will update when I have them. My mobile is always around, never have any interferences (the classical sound before a call or SMS) and the sound is completely correlated with the loading of the said pages.

Thanks - as mentionned in my other comment: this happens while I DO NOT have any audio stream on. It just appears when the page is loaded (so silence before, short crackling when that particular page loads, then silence)

Thanks, I will do that. I missed in my description the fact that this happens while I DO NOT have any audio stream on. It just appears when the page is loaded (so silence before, short crackling when that particular page loads, then silence)

comment How to boot Windows 8 after an Ubuntu specific partition install?
Thank you for the information. I do not have a Windows 8 DVD, the system came pre-installed. Short of, hmmm, getting it anyway a way or another, is there a way to do the repair without the DVD (a rescue system built upon another Windows install for instance)?

comment How to switch off auto brightness on a Lenovo W530
I have just one (integrated) Nvidia card. I saw various posts about the same issue with Intel cards, but unfortunately I do not have any.

comment How to switch off auto brightness on a Lenovo W530
Sorry, I was not clear. I would like to screen to dim automatically to a preset value when not used (as it has always done) -- I do not want it to dim in and out frantically whenever there is a change in ambient luminosity, or when I open a dark window on the screen.

comment How to switch off auto brightness on a Lenovo W530
@and31415: wouldn't that completely disable dimming? (I need it particularly when on battery). Dimming itself is not a problem - it is the adaptive feature which is.

@and31415: I am using 8.1. The values for "Dimmed display brightness" are 50% for each case. Does it matter for adaptive brightness?

comment How can I speed up switching users in Windows 8?
@Ramhound of course it is not - it's just that everything else beyond this silly user switch works perfectly fast, that 's all. If you really think this is a matter of hardware a Lenovo X1 Carbon has the same issue.

comment How can I speed up switching users in Windows 8?
I have the same problem on a fresh Win8 install on a i5 laptop - everything else is fast (so to comment on @Ramhound - this does not seem to be a HW issue at all -- or network speed for that matter)

comment Is it possible to pin a windows to the desktop in Windows 7?
The problem with Aero Snap is that the windows remains a window, just resized: pressing WinKey-M minimizes it, etc.

@Ramhound: yes I know - I gave the dynamic desktop analogy just for the look-and-feel of what I am looking for.

comment Efficiently extracting a few data from a large XML file
The solution with iterparse works great. It improved the parsing time by at least an order of magnitude. I stumble, however, on a problem but I will open a separate question

No, I am not. Thanks for the hint -- I will read & implement and be back with feedback (and mark the question as answered)

comment Outlook 2010: automatic category assignment for meetings
@CharlieRB:with all due respect - the question is asked correctly. It states the problem, a sought solution similar to an existing feature in Outlook (as well as some nice-to-have) and asks for a direction to look at. I dod not find anything interesting, otherwise I would have stated it (I am not Edison to state all that failed :))

comment Outlook 2010: automatic category assignment for meetings
@CharlieRB: I could not find anything out of the box (having looked around Outlook). The closest I got to was to use a Rule (on new email) but this is very limited (only applies to new meetings, is not dynamic upon changes, limited granularity on conditions (pertinent to a meeting - participants for instance)). As I mentioned I am looking for pointers towards a reasonable direction from someone who is more knowledgable than me in Outlook.
