The contents of website can bring frustration at the time, but be followed by tears of laughter when looking back at the events. However, there is a class of client that can you leave you wondering why you bother at all. http://www.rinkworks.com/stupid/cs_keyboards.shtml If, during a visit to a doctor, you fail to tell the doctor exactly… Continue reading Have A Nice Day..
Actually, I hate the word ‘bloat’, but I use it now because it is bandied around quite a lot. According to sources, the next version of Windows will no longer include an e-mail client, picture viewer, and MovieMaker. It is said that this will benefit the user in as much as the latest versions of… Continue reading Add Bloat To Taste
I doubt that many people ever knew what the additional buttons on a modern mouse did until fairly recently. Just so that we are on the same page, I have included a picture of a Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 5000, where you will see a red arrow pointing to the auxiliary buttons.

This machine is so lean that it can’t even send anything to a printer anymore. I have said no to security updates, and no more silly anti-virus running. What’s… Continue reading Déjà Vu..
What can be more fun than watching a ‘Roomba’ in action, windshield wipers clearing rain, clothes swishing around in a front loading wash machine or dryer. Ask your pet dog or cat. As members of the genus ‘Homo Sapiens’, we are above this kind of behaviour, yes? Nooooooooooooooo, we are most definitely not. Once introduced… Continue reading Ultimate Defrag.. Ultimate fun..
There are some who will tell you that Microsoft FrontPage was garbage, that it didn’t adhere to Internet standards, needed what was known as FrontPage extensions installed on the hosting server, that web sites created in it all had the ‘FrontPage’ look. It was easy to create a web site. Good templates plus the ability… Continue reading W3C compliance.. Will I ever get there?
I wonder what one takes for Mac crashes? A second mortgage perhaps? Herbal tea is a cheap alternative and would last for quite some while, especially as Vista crashes are not the norm. Some may be amused by the Apple adverts, but they leave me cold. Can’t they highlight anything good about their own product?… Continue reading Herbal tea soothes Vista crashes?
