What to Do if Your Computer Slows Down

November 11, 2010

Computer problems are normally caused by poor maintenance of computer systems.  It’s a result of not paying attention to the things that a computer also needs. Having computer problems would surely affect your productivity as a computer user.  Here are some tips for a blissful computing experience for a longer time.

1.       Always have trusted anti-virus software installed on your computer.

  • Computer problems normally start when a single virus enters your computer. From there it will open all the doors for other problems that will surely get into your nerves.  Select only one antivirus software, since having more than 1 antivirus program would drastically slow down your computer.  If you are on a budget, you can use free antivirus software that is still dependable when it comes to computer security against viruses.  I would personally recommend AVIRA- Free Edition and also the free edition of AVG software.

2.       Un-install any software that are not useful anymore

  • Computer users are fund of downloading software that they found very interesting on the internet. Installing it on their computer and trying all its functionalities for a period of time. Eventually when this software is not needed anymore, we always forget to delete it on our system. This unused software would still take some space on our hard disk and even take some of the resources in our memory. Deleting this unused software would also give us much greater space for important files on our computer.

3.       Install only one Utility software.

  • Utility software is a kind of software that is intended to optimize and maintain a computer. Almost all the things needed for a computer to function like brand new can be found on this software. Knowing the fact that this software can do well to our computer makes us tempted on installing more than one kind of this software. It would take up much of our computer resources resulting to slow computer performance. Here is a link for some best utility software for you.

Observing these simple reminders would surely make your computer experience a more convenient and productive one.


Simple Way to Address Global Warming

November 9, 2010

Global Warming is a major problem today that needs all of our attention. Others may not feel its effect today, but studies show that its effect is getting worst. If we will not take action now, maybe, by the time that we start to address this problem, it might be too late for us.

It has been a long time since my teacher in college opened my eyes on the effects of Global Warming. We watched a video on the effects on Global Warning and a short talk followed. I was moved by the sincerity that I saw in my teacher’s words and actions.

From that time on, I guess the best thing that i have done since then was “walking instead of riding transportation vehicles”. It is a fact that almost all people today are in a hurry that they ride cars or any transportation vehicle even if the place where they are going is just near. Others are just becoming too lazy to walk a few kilometers. Even our teacher that time made it a practice to lessen the use of his car. I personally saw it with my own eyes. We are all aware of the effects of the smokes being emitted by vehicles, it adds to our global warming problems. Maybe this is just a simple task but it would be something that everyone should look into. Aside from helping in our global warming problems, walking also gives us a lot of benefits like being a form of exercise and saving fuels(if you own a car). Until now, i am doing this not only for my own good, but also as a sign of showing that I value Mother Earth and everyone that is in it, including YOU! How about doing some simply actions now, actions that will showcase your love for mother Earth.

Programming Subject

October 19, 2010

Information Technology and  is not an easy course. Creating set of instructions for a computer to follow is never an easy task. It entails analysis and lots of understanding on the programming language that you are using. Programming which is one of the major subjects in IT is almost a head-ache for all IT students. Being a teacher for 2 years i have seen how students struggle on the said subject. I have heard all their complains regarding the difficulty of the subject. I definitely understand them because i myself encounter the same problem when i was still studying. Amidst the difficulty of the course i still manage the finish my studies. With the experiences i had in programming let me share some tips on how to do better in programming especially for newbies.

1. Love the subject(Programming) – Hating the subject for its difficulty would just mess up your current situation. It will never do you any good if you curse the subject. Since you choose IT as your course you must accept all the difficulties with it. Again learn to Love programming.

2. Practice practice practice – I do believe in the saying that practice makes perfect. You must always practice programming on a computer or even in your notebook. Create simple programs during your free time. If you don’t have any computer, write it in your note. It will really help you a lot.

3. Research on the internet for examples – look for simple examples on the internet and studying them. Do not memorize the code, you have to study and analyze.

4. Never get into online games – base on experience it will surely get your focus out on your studies.

I guess that would be all. To all my students, good luck on your programming subjects and study harder…

Petrang Kabayo

October 17, 2010

I am not really a fan of “Tagalog” movies. I find it boring and so predictable. I used to watch those movies before and i got disappointed so many times. That was the reason why i said to myself that i will never watch “tagalog” movies in theaters again.

Just recently,  my partner wanted to watch the movie “Petrang Kabayo”, i would really like to disagree with her choice but since she really likes to see it so much, i just simply granted her wish. In my mind i was thinking that this will be another boring movie that i had watched before. To my surprise, i was totally wrong. The movie was really funny and Vice-Ganda really did a great job in doing those punch-lines that made her famous in “ShowTime”.

I will not tell the whole thing that happened in the movie.  Just watch it and hopefully you will enjoy as i did. It’s really a funny movie.  We really enjoyed watching the…
