comment rdesktop - windows 7 - mouse pointer invisible - no black outline
I'm on Arch too. The instructions here are distribution agnostic, the key is to make sure you pick the same cursor theme if you want the cursors to match (although there's nothing stopping you from mixing and matching between themes.)

comment configuring synergy with dual monitor server on top of single monitor client
I'm not sure, maybe you can ask on a Ubuntu forum? You'd expect Xinerama to be the normal method, but if that were true then your Synergy configuration should work as-is. Can you confirm you have "ubuntubox" listed as the screen name? Not sure what "uf8bc12...etc" is in the example config you posted.

How are your Linux screens configured? Separate screens, Xinerama, TwinView, Zaphod, etc? The solution is very different for each possibility.

comment Synergy Can't Get To All Monitors On One Computer
@Chris: I believe your synergy.conf has two entries for the Linux machine, then when you launch the Synergy client you have to tell it which PC entry you are using and which X11 display to open. I guess the --display :0.0 and --display :0.1 parameters tell it which X11 display to use, and the --name option tells it which screen-name to use in the config file, since your single PC will have two different names.

comment USB 2.0 device on USB 3.0 Power and Data Bandwidth
This is actually incorrect. As the other answers have indicated, there will not be an increase in the bandwidth back to the computer, even over a USB3 cable to a USB3 port. This is because USB2 device traffic does not get merged into the USB3 data stream, but it actually runs on the original, separate, USB2 wires that are in the USB3 cable. If there is ever a USB3 hub with Multi-TT support for USB2 then what you are saying would be correct, however as the other answers have suggested this is not currently the case.

comment How to filter out flagged emails from a specific account in Outlook 2010's task list
What do you do when this doesn't work? For me it either hides all items (including from the account you are supposed to be viewing) or it shows completed items from all accounts, contrary to the existing criteria that hide completed items!
