Wahoo's Computer & Internet Tips Newsletter - May 2007

In The News This Month...
Hello and welcome to May's Newsletter! First thing I want to say is Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there. I hope your day is special. I especially want to say Happy Mother's Day to my Mom: Hang in there Mom! Things will get better!

Hope everyone is doing well and looking forward to summer. Here in McBride, anybody living along the Fraser River is keeping a close eye on the water levels and hoping it doesn't flood their yard.

We had a very unusual week this past week. There were about 100 or 200 seagulls here! See the picture below for a sample. Normally you may see a couple here once in a blue moon, but for some reason there were lots here. Don't know if they came in ahead of the storm we got that night and the next day, or if they were just migrating back to their summer home and made a stop in McBride for a day or so. Weird!

Seagulls in McBride

Anyways, I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel in regards to catching up my bookkeeping clients. But just the other day I accepted to take on 2 new clients who are just starting their own business. Talk about a glutton for punishment!

This month I have included 2 short articles for you so you can enjoy the weekend with your mother. One is Windows XP Tip - Tone Down the Effects and the other is another Windows XP Tip - Clock. Hope you enjoy them!

That's that. Thanks for reading!

Did You Know...?

George Washington once said, "My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her."

Native American Indian women have long been honored with the name, "Life of the Nation" for their gift of motherhood to the tribes.

Windows XP - Tone Down the Effects

If Windows XP becomes sluggish, turn off some of the visual fireworks that may be taxing your screen updates via the Performance Options dialog box. Open Control Panel, and if you're using the default Category view, click the Performance and Maintenance link. Under "Pick a task", choose Adjust visual effects. If you're using the Classic view of Control Panel, double-click the System icon. (Alternatively, you can right-click My Computer in Explorer and choose Properties). Click the Advanced tab, and select the first Settings button (under Performance).

The Visual Effects tab lists check boxes for turning individaul effects on for more razzle-dazzle or off for better performance. The preset options at the top of the dialog box simplify matters: If Let Windows choose what's best for my computer isn't already selected, choose it and click OK twice. Try this setting for a while, and if you're not satisfied, return to the dialog box and click Adjust for best performance, which unchecks all the visual options. If you miss some of the excitement, open this dialog box again and experiment by turning individual effects on one by one until you find a good balance between sizzle and steak.

Windows XP - Clock

The clock is located in the system tray and shows the current time. Right-click the taskbar, select Properties, choose the Taskbar tab, and uncheck Show the clock.
