  • They will be unable to WRITE!

  • Students today depend on paper too much.

  • They don’t know how to write on a slate without getting chalk all over themselves.

  • They can’t clean a slate properly.

  • Students today depend upon store bought ink.

  • They don’t know how to make their own.

  • When they run out of ink they will be unable to write words until their next trip to the settlement.

  • This is a sad commentary on modern education.

  • Ballpoint pens will be the ruin of education in our country.

  • Students use these devices and then throw them away.

  • The American values of thrift and frugality are being discarded.

  • Businesses and banks will never allow such expensive luxuries.

Junk files
Junk Files

What are cookies?

Do I need temp files?

Do I want a lot of Cache?


Junk files1
JUNK FILES

  • Cookies are small text files that keep track of what pages you have visited at a website. When you return to that website it can recognize that you have been there before.

  • Cache is very fast memory on your CPU that allows you to move information quickly without taking all of your information through the motherboard.

  • Temporary Files are stored bits of data left over by improper shut downs or improperly written programs. They are stored on your hard drive and take up space.


Junk files2
JUNK FILES

  • Clear your cookies…you don’t want sites keeping track of where you have been!

  • Clear your cache!

  • Clear out your temp files!

  • You should do these once a month or more often if you are active on the internet!



Memory
Memory

Do I have enough memory?

MEMORY

  • Having enough memory can make a speed difference!

  • BUT so can….Getting Organized!

  • If you haven’t used a document in a while…get rid of it! Or at least copy it on to a disk and delete it off of your hard drive!
