Editorial This article describes some of my annoyances in computing. If you had any problems reading this article, then skip this one. It will only be a waste of your time. There are a lot of annoying things in the wonderful world of computing. Of course, nothing is perfect, but that doesn't mean we are not allowed to complain and scream and throw our keyboards at our monitors when yet another irritation pops up.

1) Cut off irrelevant services enabled at boot time. Use an OS which does this by default.

My XP box is tweaked to the max. All services are reviewed and checked for usefullness and activated/deactivated accordingly.

You didn't get my point though. Seeing the development in computing, booting shoudln't be nescesary at all. One hundred years ago, we used levers in front of cars to start them, now we use a key or chip. That's a huge improvement, I want that in my PC as well.

2) Keep the OS running and go to the toilet after you did that 1 per month reboot.

Mmmm, I turn my computer off when I go to bed at night. And as I said, I don't want to keep them running all the time. Waste of energy, and computers are noisy.

3) Get yourself a faster HDD, architecture.

7200rpm. I doubt that going to 10000rpm will change a thing.

4) Get yourself a nice CF to boot off.

Yeah right.
