One of the things that I love about Twitter is the way other people and myself are sharing links to interesting articles and posts on the web. The problem with this sharing though, is the ephemeral nature of Twitter. Unless you are watching the live stream when it is tweeted it is all too easy to miss a valuable or giving link. Twitter is supposed to be NOW, not later but to me this is one of its shortcomings. When I share a link, either by tweeting it myself or by retweeting someone elses tweet, I do it because I think that the post/article/video has value. In order for more people to be able to see my shares I will post the previous weeks links on my blog.
There has been many stories going around the internet on how well Windows 7 manages on older and inferior hardware compared to what Windows Vista did. Having an old laptop lying unused in my shed, I decided to test this out myself. I went to the shed, picked up my old dusty Toshiba Satellite 1200 S121 and returned to my office. I plugged in the machine, popped the Windows 7 Ultimate x86 DVD and booted from it.
