I thought etbe's questions, "Two Questions for All Serious Free Software Contributors", deserved an article, so I posted one.

There's no better way to increase the incidence of useful articles than to post them.

Then, of course, the best clock rate is zero. On a related note, I think it's irresponsible that (e.g.) Gnome doesn't default to "xset dpms 0 0 1800" or similar.
