Facebook Friday | Software Winners Announced

Hey folks, let me introduce a new T4E feature –  Facebook Friday!

Item 1 – A movie about Facebook: (ABC) “The Social Network” will hit theaters on Oct. 1, but already the movie has sparked thousands of conversations, not to mention wall posts.

“Since the movie trailer hit the Web this summer, millions of Facebook Friends have been waiting to see a film dramatizing Facebook’s meteoric rise from Harvard’s campus to global Internet phenomenon.”

Uh. Yeah. Not gonna see it. Not even when it comes out on cable.

Item 2Facebook outage was its biggest ever

(CNN)Facebook’s outage that shut down the site for many users Thursday was its worst since it became a worldwide social-networking powerhouse, according to an engineer for the site.

It seems EVERYONE was affected by not being able to access Facebook yesterday, and today the media is a-buzz. (I don’t watch or read the mainstream media anymore, largely for reasons such as this. Facebook outage.. well, have to fill the airtime I guess.)

I like this headline from Oregon Public Broadcasting:

OPB BREAKING NEWS: Facebook is down. Worker productivity rises. U.S. climbs out of recession.

I do hope the Facebook outage did not cause any Farmville animals to suffer from neglect…

This week’s software license winners are…

The folks at SPAMFighter (last week’s giveaway) generously donated 10 one-year licenses for SLOW-PCFighter to me, to award to my readers. I sincerely thank them for that.

SLOW-PCFighter is a Registry repair program which “uses the most advanced technologies available” to analyze PC errors and – as the name suggests – speed up a PC which has become slow.

From the author:

SLOW-PCfighter seeks out and removes all unused entries in your Registry from failed software, driver installations and faulty un-installations and optimizes Windows startup.”
