So I figure that today is the day that I clean up my desktop computer (I'm on my laptop at the moment). It's been OVER two years since I've done my last clean up. Normally, my install doesn't make it past the one year mark before getting the swift overhaul. I've got it pretty much down to a short evening's work by organizing my partitions in a fashion similar to you linux folk. (one for the OS, one/more for data, swap drive? What is this swap you speak of?) Aside: Warning: Spoilers inside! Bonus Tip: Putting your pagefile.sys on a different physical harrddrive than your OS speeds things up EDIT: But DON'T JUST MOVE IT, OMG. You have to go to your system properties! (Extra Bonus Tip: sysdm.cpl) Anyhow, does anyone else share my clean-freakish ways? PS: I know I could just keep things running in tip-top shape by being careful... but I've done that for TWO years. Windows XP wasn't known for it's amazing registry practices you know. Stuff gets left behind somehow. PPS: Getting kinda' emotional, though. This install made it through 1.5, 2.0 AND 3.0 of Firefox. God speed little buddy.
