New Year, New Blog.

Decided to move away from Blogger – I never truly felt at home there for the couple of years I blogged on it, so I decided to move to WP. I feel a little closer to God as it were, as it’s more Open Source than those code bandits at Google.

Well then, odd Christmas. Broke both arms falling out of a bin (yes, really. no, wasn’t pissed), only just recovered. In fact, today was my first day back at work for five weeks. Felt strange at first, and then before I knew it, it was like I’d never been away. Machine gunned with things to do.

BrainShare is a little over a month away. The Manchester 10K is a little further away than that. Each present challenges in their own different and interesting ways. Must now figure out a way to port my old blog stuff to an archive. Chances are I can’t.

For your viewing pleasure today, “How To Speed Up Vista” from Microsoft. My first thought was “upgrade to Linux”, but they go all no-shit-Sherlock on us and tell us the following :-

  • Delete programs you never use
  • Limit how many programs load at startup
  • Defragment your hard drive
  • Clean up your hard disk
  • Run fewer programs at the same time
  • Turn off visual effects
  • Restart regularly
  • Add more memory
  • Check for viruses and spyware
  • Disable services you don’t need

Wow, what great insight. Head on over to The Register for the full deal.
