comment Windows 7: How do I listen to music on the computer's speakers, and take calls over a headset, without having to unplug/plugin the headset?
Forest for the trees... Last night I was going to do and end run around the question of what to do with browser based phone calls by configuring a SIP phone which as a native app I could more easily configure where it's IO comes from (because my realtek drivers support a communications device), and I saw, and skipped, right past the Gmail chat audio settings. Saw them. Played with them. Never clued in. Oops. Thank you, now the SIP phone is nice, but not needed.

Hi skypecapes, I apologize that I haven't accepted this as an answer yet. But I do greatly appreciate your answering it and even testing it. One day soon, when I can see my desk again, I will try this out, but I do greatly appreciate your time and help.

comment Why does Mac OS X need to reboot for updates so often?
"One of the great things about Windows 7 is I can update just about anything, even video drivers, without rebooting." Really? My windows 7 machines go down so often to update that the Windows Vice Squad has our house on speed dial.

Thanks Chris, I hadn't realized that about the vacuum. And I've been avoiding replacing the heatsink, but, yeah, I'd prefer to do that than burn the CPU up.

Thanks, I appreciate your testing this. And yes, I think some of my issues is that most of what I listen to is browser based.

comment How does Windows know when your Internet connection (but not your LAN connection) goes down?
I wish my android phone would do something similar to determine if the wifi connection really works, or if it's just connected but there is some stupid website spoofing dns until some checkbox is clicked.
