Maintenance for my PC

Did you check out my post yesterday on gmail multiple log in? If not, you should. I'm sure you would love that extra gmail feature. Today I just want to talk about how I maintain the performance of my PC/laptop so that it runs as smoothly as the day I first bought it without that "heavy" feeling. This is very relevant to me as I often install and uninstall software, for trying out purposes. I am no professional when it comes to fixing my PC, so I finally got Advanced SystemCare by to do the optimizing job for me. It's totally FREE but of course there is also the professional version. The FREE version was good enough for me except updating was a bit of a problem as I had to uninstall the current version and reinstall the new version. So, after a year using the FREE version with my PC in great condition, I decided to get the professional version recently. PC maintenance now is done automatically as I have set it to perform computer care when the system is idle. Updating too has been a breeze as it is regularly updated just like an antivirus software. Why don't you give it a try? You can download Advanced SystemCare FREE here.

Logging in multiple gmail accounts - Continuation

Ok, here's how to do it, assuming you are using Firefox
1. Install the greasemonkey add-ons here.
2. Get the userscripts for logging in multiple gmail accounts here. Just click install.
3. Log into any of your gmail account.
4. This is what you will see on top of the page:

5. You can then use the drop down menu to add account, remove account and sign out.
And, that's it! Cool to me because now I can gain access to all my accounts, one at a time but without logging in and out ..

Logging in multiple gmail accounts

If you are using Firefox, there are many things that you can do to change the look of gmail through the Greasemonkey adds-on. So, what does Greasemonkey do? Greasemonkey allows you to customize the way a webpage displays using small bits of JavaScript. By installing the proper scripts .. walla .. you get a different look of a webpage like gmail. There are loads of scripts available that you can choose from. But I have particularly used Google-Account Multi-Login. And its simply because I have a few gmail accounts that I would like to check regularly. From one google account, I can simply go to another without logging out... How? Wait for my next post

Mac your Windows

Mac users would often ridicule any attempts made by Windows users to make their Windows look like Mac. They would say, "throw away your Windows and get a Mac if you like the look so much!" Well its your choice really. You can make your Windows look like Mac but stick to Windows functionality using FlyakiteOSX. I've tried it in my other laptop and yeah .. it looks like Mac .. If you suddenly feel like changing back to Windows, the uninstaller is there. I've tried doing that too and without any problem I was back to Windows appearance. Read more or download FlyakiteOSX here.
