I've tried defragmenting my drives and stuff like that, but my computer doesn't seem to get much faster. Any other tips?
Ever heard of "Salty's Law"? Goes something like:misogynisticfeminist said:I've tried defragmenting my drives and stuff like that, but my computer doesn't seem to get much faster. Any other tips?
Very true ... 2nd : d .... and extremely annoying .... the only way over this is to carry some server - class hardware running (*)*nix as a 'laptop' (does depend quite a bit on what you do with your machine but have this problem consistently).saltydog said:Ever heard of "Salty's Law"? Goes something like:
No matter what computer you have and what you do to make it faster, or even if you buy a much faster one, within a period of about 2 weeks, you'll quickly ramp-up the load on it so that in practical terms, it's going about the same speed it was going before you make the changes.
Let me qualify this before I get jumped on: You run more CPU intensive apps, and thus are still starring at the monitor the same amount of time waiting for it to finish is what I mean.
