What? More Facebook? | Inside Your PC

Yes, folks. A bit more on Facebook…

Facebook: What happens to active users when jobs come back?

There may be an inverse relationship between jobs and Facebook growth. In other words, more jobs may mean less Facebook time.Read more..

(I like that optimism.)

Really busy again today, so how about a quick repost of a good article you may have missed.

What The Inside Looks Like…

Today’s article is going to be just a little bit different, and it will be ‘short and sweet’. On several recent onsite repair jobs, I have opened the computer’s side panel and heard the client exclaim, “that’s all that’s in there? I was expecting more.. more.. stuff.” I am always bemused by people’s reactions when they look inside a PC for the first time.
(Yes, there’s a lot of open space inside a desktop PC. Laptop’s are different, and every nook is filled.)

So today – for those of you who have never seen the insides of a computer – I provide two simple photos: inside a desktop, and inside a laptop. (Your configuration will have some differences..)

Fairly high-end desktop (aka “loaded”), yours may not have so much in there..

Sunday Beauty XIII

For today’s Sunday Beauty photo, I went searching for photos taken in one of my favorite locations — Yosemite.

 

El Capitan, Yosemite National Park, USA.

(This photo is large enough to be used as a Desktop background. Click on image for large version.)

I am rather lucky in that Yosemite National Park is not too terribly far from me, and I have been able to visit many times. If you have been fortunate enough to have visited yourself, I believe you will agree with me that it is special. If you have not yet been, I hope you will one day get a chance to visit. (I have never said so here before, but I am a fan and supporter of our National Park Service.)
