How to make your Intel Pentium-D computer ultra-fast :-)

Thursday, January 11th, 2007

{zalman} The Intel Pentium-D 2.8 GHz (Intel i945P) computer, sitting proudly on my deskOr A Story about How my Intel Pentium-D Computer Became Ultra-Fast… again* :-)

…So here I am, sitting in the office yesterday, sipping at my coffee peacefully and thinking about doing some boring PC optimisation work – defragmentation, disk cleanup, etc.

Lately I noticed, that my computer is acting strange from time to time – slows down, opens applications with much more delay than usual; the whole Windows was feeling somehow slowish, but not in the way it slows down after too much work performed since first install (besides, I installed this Windows XP Professional SP2 myself not a long ago, and that wasn’t an option).

17'628 km on the roads with my bike(s)This number showed today my bike computer, under Total Odometer Distance.

It means, I made 17’628 km, or almost 11’000 miles, in approx. 4 years, since I own a bicycle.

Is this too much or too less?


How do you write a post about a walk in the mountains

Kominite peak on Vitosha mountainYesterday was a great day.

The sun was shining bright, there was no wind, and in Sofia the temperatures were way above zero (Celsius, not Fahrenheit;-) – so we decided to go out with friends and see Vitosha mountain.

So, how do you write a post about how you went to the zmountain, and how beautiful it all was? I don’t know. I confess that Dan Cederholm’s post post about how he climbed a mountain inspired me a bit.

So, here I present humbly to you some outline of this day’s adventure, and a couple of photos to enhance the story. I’m sure that this is not the perfect style, that some things could be told better, some omitted, and others – added. But this is how I did it. Enjoy:)
