Looking through dmesg, I'm seeing my Logitech Unifying kit all over the place, but not seeing the webcams.

comment Why aren't all CPUs 'overclocked' as a factory default?
Similarly, I'm on a netbook right now, for the uses I give it, it doesn't need all the proc speed, and running cooler would be running better, so again, ramping the clock down, not up, makes more sense.

comment Why aren't all CPUs 'overclocked' as a factory default?
I'd like to hit the cooling and efficiency topic here. I know people who run large compute clusters, and in summer months, sometimes their cooling doesn't keep up. They worked out a way to *under*clock their servers in software, so that when their systems can't handle the heat, they can drastically scale back the power being used and thus the heat being generated, rather than having to shut down machines that are running jobs that, even with modern clusters with multiple cores, can take several months to run. Amping up the processors to get extra cycles doesn't make sense there.

comment Is Cloud Print to blame for my inability to print?
That did it. It took a little bit of poking to figure out how to tell Windows 7 to delete the drivers, and I also uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome, but that solved it.

Just tried that, via mmc. I may have neglected to reboot several dozen times in that process, but it now behaves exactly as it did before I tried.
