It's been a very long time since I've posted.  Started a new job, finished school, starting school again next week, life, etc.  Anyway, I hope some of you find this link useful

Life Hacker Article on

In a nutshell basically a place that downloads torrents you selected using their superspeed bandwith, and then you can download at your leisure.  Not a bad idea I think.  Also has the ability to stream media torrents that you are downloading.  I signed up for the service but haven't had a chance to use it yet, we'll see how it goes.  Probably a little slower than they are used to to be honest, I'm sure they are getting slammed since this was posted on Lifehacker.  Anyways, hopefully someone out there thinks this is useful.  If you do, please send your friends here first to check out the article!

Cheers :)

Chrome OS Notebook!

Been awhile since I've posted due to finals, starting a new job, etc.  I thought i would share this with you all though.  No doubt you've heard that Google has had a HUGE 2 day event called Google I/O.  They announced a bunch of things, including Android 3.1 and all of its new features and functionalities.

Today on day two they expanded on the new Chrome OS notebook that they built in partnership with Samsung.  It's a really beautiful looking machine to be honest.  12.1 inch screen running Chrome OS (it's blazing fast, check the video) with 8.5 hours of battery life, and they are going to be making it extremely affordable.  I believe the price will be somewhere around $450USD. Please take a look at the article below, they are even going to allow you to do a payment plan on it ($20/month for students).  Google does great things, hopefully with my new job, I grab the experience I need to apply there one day ;]

Securely Erasing Your Hard Drive

Let's say you have a had drive or pc laying around somewhere.  Whether you want to reuse it, sell it, give it to a friend, whatever, you NEED to make sure that data is cleared off of it.  Alot of people think that by just deleting a file from windows and cleaning out the recycle bin gets rid of the file forever.


I've had a few scenarios where people brought me an old hard drive that "doesn't work" and I've been able to pull massive amounts of data off of it using nothing but a free piece of software I found on the interwebz.  Lucky for them I work for the forces of good rather than evil....sometimes.  Anyway, if you're in a situation where you need to completely clear a disk of all of it's contents, please check out the article below from .  Give's you an idea of what happens when you delete a file, and how to securely wipe a drive of data.  If you really want a want to make sure that no one gets data from your drive, I will post a blog soon with pictures on how to open your HDD and wreak havoc on it like Charlie Sheen on a pile of coke.  Enjoy the Article :)

LifeHacker - How to Properly Erase Your Physical Media


After reading some comments someone suggested I do a small write up on CCleaner. It's another great program I use to remove junk/temporary internet files, remove invalid registry entries, and stop some programs from starting up with Windows(great feature).

This little piece of software definitely helps with speeding up things like startup, and scanning for viruses/defragging as after you've removed all of the crap that Internet Explorer and Firefox collect, you have less to scan.

If, after viewing the tutorial you have any questions regarding it, don't hesitate to contact me. As always I'll be available to walk you through using it or help you with any problems. Tutorial Below =]

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

Ok guys.  This is for my friends who need a little assistance in removing spyware/pop-ups on their PC.  It's a really simple program to use, and I've included a 5 minute tutorial on how to use it. (not done by me).

Honestly it is pretty straight forward.  The best way to prevent this from happening is common sense (as was stated numerous times in the comments in my previous blog post).  Please don't click on anything in facebook that seems slightly strange.  Don't go downloading files from places you do not trust.  Be proactive.  you can save yourself alot of time and hassle by being safe and scanning.  Make sure you update the software before every scan.  Malwarebytes has defintely helped me assist people with their infection problems.  It isn't a cure-all, but it works great, and it is free!

What a waste...

Honestly, at this point I'm very frustrated.  Being 30, getting a later start in life (financial and educational) is difficult to deal with.  Difficult but manageable. However, sitting here in school I wonder why I'm required to do this. 

Certain classes I understand.  Being an IT major, I totally understand having to take classes like Unix, or database management, or networking, etc.  However, unless I plan on going to South America to do some kind of IT support there, or decide to write a website only in Spanish, why am I required to take TWO semesters of language? Must I take some kind of art class?  History? I'm old enough where I've written my own.  This is just silly. 

It gets to the point where you just want to get out.  I'm looking forward to next semester.  Loading up on IT courses.  I'm dreading the next few as I have to throw in this junk that I don't feel is necessary.  Maybe it will make me smarter? More worldy? I don't know, I just know they get more of my money.

College trolled me...
