comment Skype will not send/recieve messages to specific person (they will LAG)
This also occurs on Windows, exactly as described. It is clear that Skype has a bug, and this has been occurring over a large number of versions, including the latest. Also, the linked thread is gone.

comment How can I keep folders synchronized between several machines over my home network?
Also, when Windows Live Mesh is active, forget about using your PC. It has no Pause feature and no way to throttle neither its CPU usage nor the bandwidth. It even fails to set itself as Idle priority, which is an absolute must for a CPU-heavy background process...

comment Are there solutions that can limit the CPU usage of a process?
BES is unable to limit Windows Live Mesh (MOE.exe); it continues to use 95% regardless of any settings. The others can't possibly help because it's already set to Idle priority. Makes the whole OS very slow anyway.

comment Firefox right-click: easy support for the Firefox or the site's menu?
Well yeah, but the page in question has a useful right-click menu. I can't just turn it off without losing a lot of functionality. Google Docs Spreadsheet is another such example.

comment Is it possible to down-clock a laptop CPU?
@BlueRaja While 0% might not necessarily mean 0Hz, it's not inconceivable. The OS might configure a timer to cause an interrupt, say, 100 times a second, and then just halt the CPU (which approximates 0Hz). When the interrupt occurs, it checks if there's any work to do, and if so, updates the clock frequency.

comment How to configure QoS for CrashPlan, which connects on HTTPS port, without affecting all other HTTPS traffic?
+1, though I'm surprised the setting isn't having any effect and requires workarounds. I never got this working because it required far too much effort, by the way, so I can't say whether the set-up others mentioned here works.

Curious... I do have those installed, and I know someone who couldn't use them due to SMB issues...
