In the Top 100 for Two Days So Far
Being in the top 100 here was not something I aimed for... well, not until a few days ago. But when I found myself at 107, then at 105, I thought that it would be fun to get under a hundred. I mean, I did get a thrill when I got into the top 200.
And that is when my computer began acting up. Its speed was about a tenth of normal. I was going to call our local computer guy and see about taking the laptop in, but my husband suggested I try an app he likes called Glary Utilities. He told me it had sped up his Windows 10 computer several times. My laptop is older, Windows 8.1, but I decided to give it a try. Yesterday I ran the app and things did seem a little better. Today I bought the paid version, not expensive and on half-price sale (or is that something they always do? Dunno). I went though everything.
Yikes, I had 17 programs that needed updating so I spent most of today updating them. While I waited, I cleaned out some paper files and did a coloring book page. And now I don't think I will need to go to our local geek, not this week at least. This is not a promotion for the program.. there may well be other similar ones. But the laptop seems to be purring.
So here I am, back at WA, and still at 98 for the second day. Tra la!
How did I get here? I do write quite a frew comments on other people's WA blog posts, and I tend to make my comments funny, useful, or off the wall. I never just say "great post." And I've been doing more blogging lately too.
Will I stay under 100? Remains to be seen. I can do my part. What will my computer do?
