Most regular LApstrEz BLoG readers will remeber i posted a similar link to another PC World article a month ago for christmas, The text went sumthin like this …
Is your PC too slow, Think it’s time to upgrade? Think again, Have you ever wondered how fast your pc was when it was new? If u thought it was just old age that ur pc is workin slow, you can’t be more wrong. As time passes by we tend to fil our computer with a lot of programs we think might be useful to us, then promptly forget about it. All these small programs you install tend to startup with your computer, running background taks and updates. YOu can boost your pc speed 100%(No kidding, Well unless ofcourse you have a well maintained system) just by gettin rid of these programs. Wanna know how? Pc world presents this guide on how to get ur Pc up and running faster than ever. If you ask me what i do to keep my PC up and running, I simply follow the boring old routinue of Msconfig, spybot and Registry Cleaner…Read the PC world Gunk Busters article here.
For those who missed their chance to fame on the Microsoft Code4bill contest, Heres our very own IIT kharagpur’s BITWISE 2006.

We had a go at this contest last year and managed to solve a couple o questions. We figured we would be somver on the top 20 bcos of the toughness of the questions and the 750 only crowd. Just when we we’re ready to savour our first real victory in the ubergeek world, the programs which compiled on our compiler(Turbo C++) didnt compile on their GNU compiler. So if u are attending this contest a work of advice , get the GNU C++ compiler and learn the differences and usage… and if u do register leave a comment here.
Hoping for a better contest this time atleast, but am afraid we wont be able to make it bcos of the training up ahead. Last time we called ourselves…%*^(^$ i really don’t remember what we called ouselves last time. But this time around we are calling ourselves Deranged Programmers (Pretty apt some might say!). I got the questions up somewhere on the hard disk, I’m just hoping i dint format it along with my collection of over a hundred bookmarks the last time i did a format. Will put it up here as soon as i find it. But they’re probably there on the site(i din’t bother to look there yet!).
College is ending tommorow, so time to start our projects. But i gotta lot of other stuff i want to do in mind… will blog about that later
Before i say bye, this is a quote a friend wrote on a slam book of another friend, i do believe its his original creation (I have no words not to doubt his words).

A seriously good one…

But, Friendship is a power that lasts forever…”
