Then I realized how convenient it was to get him to the breakfast table. Before, I used to stand at the bottom of the staircase and scream his name. Now all I had to do was flick the basement light off and on, and he was here. One morning I flicked the switch, and nothing happened. I did it several more times. "I'm on my way," my son called up.

Seems to list all the drives i have connected. And it does file placement if user wants a slow weekly or night defrag. Puts all the unused stuff out by the slower access tracks. And the high use stuff on outer tracks where more data sits on a track. Less seek time? Not mean much nowadays probably. But it leaves the center for working storage space. Can see when defragging done that the unused stuff not have many frag bits. So runs faster. Moe Dear Moe, and FranticFran I downloaded and tried the free version of the Glary Utilities. First I used the included start-up manger. It showed me all kinds of obsolete and useless stuff, for example all the reporting to Microsoft about what I do. Total waste. They are not interested in what we DO, otherwise they would not have foisted the W10 user interface on us. So I unchecked all of the stuff that is not doing anything useful FOR ME. Then I went to the disk speed up part. Analyze took a while, but not as long as some other programs did. Then I hit defrag and let it do it's thing. There is no point watching it do it's Tetris style shuffling of colored blocks, so I did other work. While it was doing the defrag some activities were slower. That is normal and expected. I was pleasantly surprised how little it interfered with work. After a surprisingly short time everything speeded up and when I looked, the Tetris game was finished and all drives were defragged. Nice job, Glary! There are still more goodies in the free version, that I have not tried yet. And some day I will probably try the PRO version. For now I can definitely recommend the Glary Utilities. Thanks Moe for telling me about it. A word of caution: In case you get drastic with eliminating all kinds of stuff from the hidden start-up schedule, stuff that LOOKS useless, do a back-up before you get too rambunctious! Some useless looking stuff might be needed by some program. Glary doesn't really delete them, just unchecks them from the start-up schedule. Have FUN! DearWebby

____________________________________________________ Old Dr. Carver still made house calls. One afternoon he was called to the Tuttle house. Mrs. Tuttle was in terrible pain. The doctor came out of the bedroom a minute after he'd gone in and asked Mr. Tuttle, "Do you have a hammer?" A puzzled Mr. Tuttle went to the garage, and returned with a hammer. The doctor thanked him and went back into the bedroom. A moment later, he came out and asked, "Do you have a chisel?" Mr. Tuttle complied with the request. In the next ten minutes, Dr. Carver asked for and received a pair of pliers, a screwdriver and a hacksaw. The last request got to Mr. Tuttle. He asked, "What are you doing to my wife?" "Not a thing," replied old Doc Carver. "I can't get my instrument bag open." ___________________________________________________

A doctor and a lawyer were talking at a party. Their conversation was constantly interrupted by people describing their ailments and asking the doctor for free medical advice. After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asked the lawyer, "What do you do to stop people from asking you for legal advice when you're out of the office?" "I give it to them," replied the lawyer, "and then I send them a bill." The doctor was shocked, but agreed to give it a try. The next day, still feeling slightly guilty, the doctor prepared a batch of bills. When he went to place them in his mailbox, he found a bill from the lawyer.
