6. # Streamline MSCONFIG. Many computers have unnecessary programs running in the background which can cause a huge decrease in performance. You can use a utility called MSCONFIG to turn off unnecessary Start Up items that are
robbing your system of memory and processing power.

To run MSCONFIG, click on the Start Menu and click on run. In the run dialog box, type msconfig and press “ok”.

# Uninstall unused programs and files. Let’s face it. After a while, there are a number of programs and files that we simply don’t use anymore. Give your computer a
performance boost and get rid of them.

To delete programs completely, you must first go to the Control Panel and click on Add or Remove Programs.

Next, go to the Advanced tab. Click on the Settings button under Performance.

Select the “Adjust for best performance” radio button. Click Apply and then OK. The graphics aren’t as slick, but your computer will run a lot faster.

16. Change the SWAP speed.

17. Change color mode to high instead of “true” less data to process!



shut off unneeded services and start-up programs



One of the most often overlooked ways to speed up your PC is to simply use different applications. Switched-endorsed applications like VLC Media Player, Foxit, and Abiword can easily replace Windows Media Player, Adobe Reader, and Microsoft Word, respectively, while requiring only a fraction of the computing power (they’re also free!).


update drivers/software helps

You can get 4 GB of memory for as little as $40 from an online retailer like Newegg.com or TigerDirect.com. Just make sure to check what kind of memory your computer takes.

Learning Center Online

A company that allows people to connect for the purpose of teaching and learning anything via a hosted web software.

There would be conference calls, group classes, actual meetups (individual and group) and conference calls.

There would also be an area where each memeber is certified as an expert in each area of expertise.

A page for links that each expert reccomends and oppourtunity for teachers to sell their own video instruction kits.

I see many self-start ups doing this, however in I haven’t seen them in one location.

Three Feet From Gold

Three Feet From Gold One of the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat. Every person is guilty of this mistake at one time or another. An uncle of R. U. Darby was caught by the “gold fever” in the gold-rush days, and went west to DIG AND GROW RICH. He had never heard that more gold has been mined from the brains of men than has ever been taken from the earth. He staked a claim and went to work with pick and shovel. The going was hard, but his lust for gold was definite. After weeks of labor, he was rewarded by the discovery of the shining ore. He needed machinery to bring the ore to the surface. Quietly, he covered up the mine, retraced his footsteps to his home in Williamsburg, Maryland, told his relatives and a few neighbors of the “strike.” They got together money for the needed machinery, had it shipped. The uncle and Darby went back to work the mine. The first car of ore was mined, and shipped to a smelter. The returns proved they had one of the richest mines in Colorado! A few more cars of that ore would clear the debts. Then would come the big killing in profits. Down went the drills! Up went the hopes of Darby and Uncle! Then something happened! The vein of gold ore disappeared! They had come to the end of the rainbow, and the pot of gold was no longer there! They drilled on, desperately trying to pick up the vein again-all to no avail. Finally, they decided to QUIT. They sold the machinery to a junk man for a few hundred dollars, and took the train back home. Some “junk” men are dumb, but not this one! He called in a mining engineer to look at the mine and do a little calculating. The engineer advised that the project had failed, because the owners were not familiar with “fault lines.” His calculations showed that the vein would be found JUST THREE FEET FROM WHERE THE DARBYS HAD STOPPED DRILLING! That is exactly where it was found! The “Junk” man took millions of dollars in ore from the mine, because he knew enough to seek expert counsel before giving up. Most of the money which went into the machinery was procured through the efforts of R. U. Darby, who was then a very young man. The money came from his relatives and neighbors, because of their faith in him. He paid back every dollar of it, although he was years in doing so. Long afterward, Mr. Darby recouped his loss many times over, when he made the discovery that DESIRE can be transmuted into gold. The discovery came after he went into the business of selling life insurance. Remembering that he lost a huge fortune, because he STOPPED three feet from gold, Darby profited by the experience in his chosen work, by the simple method of saying to himself, “I stopped three feet from gold, but I will never stop because men say `no’ when I ask them to buy insurance.” Darby is one of a small group of fewer than fifty men who sell more than a million dollars in life insurance annually. He owes his “stickability” to the lesson he learned from his “quitability” in the gold mining business. Before success comes in any man’s life, he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat, and, perhaps, some failure. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to QUIT. That is exactly what the majority of men do. More than five hundred of the most successful men this country has ever known, told the author their greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them. Failure is a trickster with a keen sense of irony and cunning. It takes great delight in tripping one when success is almost within reach.

Who Was the First President of the United States?

Did you say George Washington?


John Hanson.

Six other presidents were elected after him – Elias Boudinot (1783), Thomas Mifflin (1784), Richard Henry Lee (1785), Nathan Gorman (1786), Arthur St. Clair (1787), and Cyrus Griffin (1788) – all prior to Washington taking office. Why don’t we ever hear about the first seven Presidents of the United States? It’s quite simple – The Articles of Confederation didn’t work well. The individual states had too much power and nothing could be agreed upon. A new doctrine needed to be written – something we know as the Constitution.

George Washington was definitely not the first President of the United States. He was the first President of the United States under the Constitution we follow today. And the first seven Presidents are forgotten in history.
