Tech Tuesday: Treat Your Computer Right

11 Jan

It’s time to think about our computers. Often neglected, they are expected to churn out tons of work, keep track of everything and serve as a mighty stronghold for our photos… but where’s the love? Computers need TLC too!

It’s easy to let it go by the wayside, but you inevitably pay the price. Either frantically spending hours to fix problems – when it’s not convenient – or worse, watch as it loses steam, catches a nasty virus, or [dare we say it] crashes and burns with no backups. But good news! The fantastic people over at Lifehacker have a plan:

Back Up Automatically
Secure Your Computer and Your Life Online
Run Regular Maintenance
Create a Tidy, Attractive Desktop

These tips for securing, cleaning, and backing up – are detailed and packaged neatly in a simple guide to staying on track in 2011 on their site. Check it out and treat your computer with some respect!
