A good buddy of mine...

A good buddy of mine has recently started blogging.  His most recent post has been written about the controversy over Mac's vs. PC's and has some eye-opening information for alot of people.  If you like my blog  I'd recommend you go check his out.  He is our blogging brother and should be supported for contributions to our community.

Check him out here.

A little peice of advice for this fine friday.  Take a few minutes of your time this weekend to do a little bit of spring cleaning.  For me personally, the only spring cleaning I have done has been to rearrange the desk, and to clean out my computer.  While cleaning the desk I disconnected my computer and took it out to the garage and proceeded to spray out the internal components with the air compressor.  Doing this not only made it look much nicer not having dust bunnies from the winter clogging everything, but also reduced my CPU temps by around 3 degrees.  Not bad for 3 minutes of spraying air through my case.  It's also a little bit quieter now as well.  My recommendation to you is to open up your case and blow a little.

If you want to clean up your hard drive I'd recommend picking up CCleaner for Windows.  Running the cleaner should free up some space, some of you may even gain close to a gig or more of space.  Running the registry sweeper will detect registry errors from things like uninstalled programs leaving peices behind and things like that and remove them to clean up the registry.

  5. I love ccleaner. I've been using it for a long time now. Usually once or twice a week just to keep things faster. I think the first time I used it I got back over a gig of space!
