Wayne from LA asks:
I’ve heard that people are advised to “format and reinstall Windows”. What does this mean? Is it a task to be performed habitually? When do I know if I have to do it?
Do you use distribution lists in MS Outlook?
I know I do. I love that I can group together message recipients under one name which allows me to quickly address any message by choosing the list name instead of all those individual addresses.
But, what about the times when you need to send a message to only some of the people on the list?… Continue reading

So, one night awhile back some developers were wondering if the domain name “GoogleGoogle.com” had been taken. They did a quick look-up and disappointingly found that it had.
This got their brains working, though, and they instead bought the domain name “GoogleGoogleGoogleGoogle.com” instead.
Yes, that’s four instances of Google (otherwise known as “Googli”) you’re seeing up there!… Continue reading
I was not expecting to have as much fun on this site as I did. My cousin posted a couple of these Yearbook Yourself photos of herself and her mom. So out of curiosity I decided to try it out.
Then I couldn’t stop, I made one photo after another, and had a great time doing it! It was amazing how different you can make yourself look. You can go… Continue reading
