During past few days, I did some modification on my blog here to accomodate the social media changes.
First, I removed Digg button code from templates. Not just because of the traffic from Digg is very limited, but the Digg API was not working any more. Digg has a big change on their own side. I will wait and see the future of it.
Second, I replace the Facebook like button code from the MovableType plugins code to Facebook native code.
I put it just under the post title, before the content of post. It looks good.
Third, add Twitter button, just add it in the place which Digg used before.
I use the code from Twitter Developer site.
The experts have loads of advise on how to make your passwords stronger. Most of it is bunk.
To Manage your Online Passwords, you can choose one of the best ways below or mix them.
1) Write them down
Just do it. I would like to say it is OK. You can image:What is the risk of someone being inside your house and getting access to your password, compared to choosing one that could be solved in three guesses by someone on the other side of the world?
2)Perform basic triage
You probably want to do everything you can to protect your online banking code. I am totally agree it, such as the password for your BOA account. “TttMeat9″ is probably fine. Combine capital, small case, and number into a minimum 8-digits password.
I used Acer Aspire One very often these days. Just feel the fan is too noisy. I think it is time to clean it now.
But, it is not a PC. It is a Netbook. Very compact. How to disassemble it?
I googled it and found a very good guide here.
I follow the steps and disassembled it and took the fan off. Clean the fan and installed it again.
Everything is fine, except the SSD is not found by Bios. I have to redo it to make sure the cable of SSD is perfectly installed.
Now it is very quiet when the system is on.
When computer, or PC, was used for months, the system will need to be tuneup. Just like a new car, after few month driving, it have to be sent to dealer garage to get a adjustment.
AVG PC Tuneup 2011 is a good tool. I just use a free trial one hour ago.
You can see the problems or issues AVG PC Tuneup found from my computer below.
