Slow Computer Got You Down?

computer rageI couldn’t help but laugh as I saw this cartoon online this morning.  If you are reading this blog, chances are you have been in this guy’s shoes at some point or another.

Before I received a new computer, I used to joke around by claiming that there should be a support group or similar 12-step program for people who find themselves in a daily battle with their desktop, tablet, or similar device.  A battle in which we, as humans, are destined to fall short to an inanimate device.

Before you resort to  chucking your past-its-prime monitor out your office window, have a seat, drop the sledgehammer, and read on about some simple ways to improve the speed of your device.  Of course, there comes a time throughout man’s inevitable plight with technology, in which he must learn to simply cut his losses and purchase a new unit.  I call this rule #11, since it is not listed below. In most cases, your colleagues (and your blood pressure) will thank you.  If all else fails, remember that it is a machine incapable of fathoming human emotion, and physical damage to the unit will not improve its efficiency in any way, shape, or form. 🙂

The below article from is a great reference to keep handy for those unpredictable glitches that we are all accustomed to.  If anything, search the funnies for a cartoon and remember that laughter is always the best medicine!
