Be nice to your PC

Wednesday, April 19th, 2006

You know, if folks were as nice to their PC as they are to their pets we would all live in a happier world…

Perhaps once a month, give your PC a colonic irrigation - OK, not literally (although I’m sure some of you are tempted).

First off, clean out any unwanted malware that may have accumulated. Download and run Ad-Aware Personal, and Spybot. Make sure they are updated before you run them.

Then run Disk Cleanup (Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup).

Finally kick off the disk Defragmenter (Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter).

Now go and have a cup of tea leaving your PC in private for an hour or so…

Talk from the Summit

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

I want to give you all free information about ways to use IT to the full. I believe IT should be SIMPLE - and not get in the way - to coin a phrase from the brilliant team at 37Signals, IT should “…do it’s stuff, then get out the way“.

So watch here for hints, tips, stories, and, well OK, I guess I’ll have to do some blatant self promotion every now and again - but I’m sure you’ll forgive me.

See you on the summit.
