comment How to disable the output of 7-Zip?
if you want to use status messages to check whether the command succeeded it is better to use return codes (0 for success and others which detail what failed). It is easier in a script to make decisions based on these values than on messages.

comment how to send a customized autoreply to an Outlook meeting request?
It depends on the organization and people in real life. I am looking for a technical solution, though (to be reused in other cases)

comment No Internet Access for a given machine, others work fine
I tried that, using two different addresses. The "network unreachable" info from tracert happens right after the box hop, thus my suspicion about dropping some specific packets

comment How to link the TOC to header names (in HTML view)?
@bibadia: Thanks, I was afraid that this would be the case. I already started to think about a way to convert the data with BeautifulSoupin Python but it is not an obvious exercise.

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.

comment Why some web pages interfere with my USB speakerphone?
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)
