My work computer really ground up my gears this afternoon. While fixing up a big file of data for an African telecoms event, the obnoxious little machine decided to go slooooooooow. Really slow. Damn near made me kick the thing in. I was cursing and fuming. Fortunately I was able to do some troubleshooting and closed down a couple of programs to spark up the PC’s performance again. Slow clap, Windows 7, slow clap, just like your slow self.
