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.
