Creationism Degrees Around the Corner?

Creationism Degrees Around the Corner?

There’s a lot of odd fields of study in American colleges.  Some things that you can get a degree in that the same degree isn’t really worth the paper it’s printed on.  To find a (small) list of 17 programs you can actually take, check […]

Make it Friday, Please

Image via Wikipedia I may have just founded awesome. Found Here. After the last two weeks, that just sounds so, so good.  Granted, I’m not much of a drinker but they do sound good.  Eh, I don’t think it’s going to magically change days so […]

Wow. I slept & Fixing Your PC

Wow. I slept & Fixing Your PC

Laptop computers are portable and can be used ...Side note: Is That Burt Reynolds?

I’m too on the mark today, if that even makes sense.  

I actually got to sleep in and I was still up before the short one.  I have no idea right now what stars managed to align to make this happen, but wow.

I’m usually up at 6 am to 7:30 am today?  9:30. 
I’ve gotten most of my daily must do things done already, so now here I am.  
Hell, I actually managed to make my monster of a laptop work amazingly.  Not that there was anything really ‘wrong’ it’s just loaded with more programs than it can handle, so I’ve decided to divvy everything up between this one and my other one.  
Anyhow, an actual helpful post would be nice.  How about some tune up tips for your PC?
Anti-Virus Programs
First, I can’t stress enough the importance of a good anti-virus.  I openly refuse to use Norton, or pay a company for this so my top pics of course are free.
A good course of action is to run two:
avast! Anti-Virus alongside AVG Anti-Virus are a pretty decent pairing. Both with amazingly easy to use interfaces.



Ditch Internet Explorer.  

Seriously, do it now.  Use FireFox or Chrome.  At this very second I use Google Chrome for everything.  I love it, more than FireFox.  I switched over when FireFox was giving me some issues due to some of the plug ins, and I still mainly use Google Chrome.

Clean it up.
Navigate to “My Computer”, right click on the C drive icon, click properties.  Click on disk clean-up, wait.  Click OK.  Or read this from Microsoft (I suck with the directions).
The tips above solve most of the issues most people normally deal with.  Especially the disk clean up, honestly it’s better to run it on a schedule or at least once a month.  
Most of the time, the above has solved most of the computer problems I’ve helped people with.

Surrogate Brokerages Pulled an AIG: Stopping Payment

Necessary Luxury

Necessary Luxury

It is starting to seem as if the recession will never end. People are being forced to let go of more and more of their ‘necessities’ to save money. Granted, we all define a necessity as something different. We all have that one or two […]
