This Blog, if to be called that, is intended to be a personal journal for quick tips and solutions for Windows and Linux Operating Systems. I will not be updating this constantly, but I will be adding to it when I feel I have something that is worth sharing. Alot of these tips or solutions will be something small and will not affect 99.5% of all computer users, but will be helpful for those who need them. These solutions and tips may also contain a grey area of how they can be used. I’m stating here in my first post, that I do not in any way encourage the breaking of any laws and I expect all who read this to act responsibly. I will give references and credit as much as possible. As some of these posts will contain other peoples work, if I  did not give you credit please let me know and I will make appropriate adjustments. That is all for now.
