So for a "Samuari Tech Geek" i haven't really put up anything on the tech tip yet so I thought I would talk about a couple of useful little tools I have been using. I just spotted an interesting article on Read Write Web (a great tech blog I read) about a backup tool for Google Docs. I had a quick read and installed the software only to find it is only for the Enterprise Version of Google Apps (And for those of you out there using Google Apps it looks like a good tool). Myself being a big cloud computing advocate (I live in gmail and Google Docs nowadays and haven't even opened Outlook since the start of the year!) I wanted something that would work with my personal GDocs to have a backup of everything sitting in the Cloud. A quick search turned up a tool called GDocBackup which does exacly what I want. Within a few mouse clicks I had all my documents and spreadsheets saved to a USB drive! On to useful tool number 2! The most annoying thing I think about windows is that as time goes on and you are constantly installing new applications and removing old ones Windows just seems to collect fat in its arteries and slow down. I think I experieced this on every windows machine I've ever used. Rather than having to do a fresh install of windows everytime I came across this tool called Registry Fix (Which I now run on every windows machine I work on and even installed it on my parent's computer to keep them from having a techno freakout). I usually run this tool every month or just whenever I feel my machine has become a bit slow of the mark. It takes only a few minutes to zip through and cleans everything up in your windows registry and gains back that bit of lost performance and productivity while not breaking the bank. SO thats all from me on the tech tip today, I hope to post more useful tools, websites and write some articles on getting the most out of todays technology and looking forward to tomorrow's.
