The weather in Silicon Valley just turned warm so our family is spending more time outside. But as I looked around I saw lots of weeds growing in our front yard and some plants that did not make it through the winter. I had a strong urge to clean-up our front yard landscaping.
At the same time, I saw this article from Laptop Magazine: Spring Clean Your Laptop Inside and Out. My laptop has been running slower and there is lots of dust around my keyboard. So I decided my front yard can wait, time to clean-up my laptop instead! The Laptop Magazine article covered the key items necessary for cleaning laptops: cleaning the outside and cleaning the inside by deleted unused files and unnecessary startup items.
