What! No Computer?

No Computer

my wife asked me a poignant question this morning. Here is the problem: What would you do all day if you didn’t have that blasted computer?

What a dirty question. I said, “You mean ALL DAY?”

She said “yes” and I had to answer her. I told her to give me a bit of time to think about it. After I got over the horrible trauma of thinking I would not have a computer, I wrote down this list in pencil because she would not let me near the computer:

1. I would get out my fishing gear and polish it up for the first day the sun stays out and the wind doesn’t blow.

2. I’d bring the landscape I’m painting in from the garage and add another layer of oils. (The painting is in the garage because I can’t stand the odor continually coming off oil paints.)

3. I THINK about cleaning the garage. Well, maybe not this year.

4. I’d clean my desk top. I need to find my stapler.

5. I’d study the grandiose marketing plan for my current MLM activity.

6. I’d think about how I could “tweak” my current direct mail and mail order activities. The object would be to increase profits to the point that they exceed losses.

7. I’d think about taking the cars down to the car wash and giving them their annual cleaning. Thinking about that, I think I missed the last two years. I’d put a top priority on that.

8. I’d take my granddaughter out to study the current bird populations before the spring migration ends or the Bird Flu gets them.

9. I’d get out my sketch pad and do some drawings to try to get up to the third grade level. (You don’t need to be an artist to paint some paintings but you must be an artist to draw properly. I’m sure you have to be born with it.)

10. I’d plan that trip I’ve wanted to take to Singapore and Hong Kong. What are the tsunami predictions for Thailand?

11. I’d brush up on the history of the Peloponnesian War.

12. I’d run right down and buy a battery operated backup computer and enclose it in lead in case of a huge computer-killing solar flare.

I think I’ll do Number 12 anyway.

My wife blocked me from getting back on the computer. She said, “You need some fresh air. Get out there and finish cleaning up the flower beds. It will do you good.”

I told her that I thought that Tony could finish up the flower beds where I left off. Tony is the Mexican fellow who cuts our lawn.

That’s when my seventy-one-year-old wife kicked me squarely in the pants. I was out in the yard in a flash.

How To Make Your Laptop Run Faster

Laptop Run Faster

When your laptop becomes slow and sluggish, many people may take that as a sign for them to buy a new laptop. In truth, sluggish netbooks are often caused by rather simple issues that can easily be fixed in a matter of minutes. So be sure to go through the checklist below before you decide to trash your laptop.

Step 1: A full hard drive may cause a slow running laptop.

Try deleting all old and unused files from your internal hard drives. You can make also make use of an external hard drive to free up some space on your laptop. In addition to that, you should also uninstall programs that you seldom (or never) use. Very often, programs take up a lot of space on your hard drive. As a rule of thumb, you should always have at least 3GB of free space on your C: drive at all time. After you have done all that, restart your laptop and see if it runs faster now.

Step 2: If your laptop is still sluggish, the next thing to do is to check if there are any software running in the background.

Expand the software tray on the right side on your windows bar (on the bottom of your screen). Check on all the programs that are running. If they are not essential, you should either uninstall them or change their setting so that they will not run on startup. Try to keep the number of start-up programs to the minimum.

Also, check if your anti-virus is running a scan. Most anti-virus programs run automatic scans, and this can slow the system down. Go to your anti-virus program’s settings page and turn off the automatic scan option. This allows you to scan your laptop only when you choose to. After you have done this, restart and see if your computer has sped up.

Step 3: If you did not witness any improvements, go to download.com and download the Ccleaner software.

This is a handy software that cleans up your laptop by removing unused files, clearing your temporary folder bins and there is also an option to clean your laptop’s registry. After you performed a ‘cleaning’ with that program, restart your computer.

Step 4: If that fails to speed up your laptop, you should then try to use the Smart Defrag software.

This software improves the fragmentation of your laptop’s hard drives. This process is known to speed up the performance of a PC dramatically. After running the software to defragment and optimize your computer, restart your system.

When all of the steps above fail, it may be a reliable indicator that it is time to replace your laptop, but before you do that, you might want to consult a computer technician first above all else.
