About a year ago, we posted an article about virus infection, “How to Help Prevent Getting Re-infected by viruses (Or Get Infected in the First Place.)” .
Todays blog post is a follow up to that. Here at Geek Easy we frequently get asked “How did I get infected?”. It’s never a simple answer so we thought we give you some general ideas of how it could possibly happen.
Everybody has a friend, family member, or co-worker that is “good with computers”. They can be a handy person to have around when you have minor issues like forgetting how to print a spreadsheet, or how to save pictures from your smartphone, or or how to attach those pictures to an email to send to your aunt in Pasadena. It’s great to have someone you can call at a moments notice for little stuff like that. But what isn’t great is when people go to these same individuals for major issues. While these “computer guys” may have your best interest in heart, what they don’t have is the training and knowledge, the years of hands on experience repairing computers, or the tools of a professional computer repair shop.
Like any other substantial investment such as a vehicle or a home, owning a computer comes with responsibility to maintain it in order for it to perform as it was designed to do. Unfortunately most computer owners are either uninformed of this, think its relatively unimportant, or just don’t have the knowledge to provide this maintenance.
Here at Geek Easy Computers, we like to make sure you, our customers and fans, are provided with good, practical information regarding your technology needs. We want to make sure your questions are answered, and that we educate you in the correct ways to take care of your computers! We also like to have fun and not be always hammering you with facts and protocol.
So todays post is on the lighter side. A few of you have asked about setting up a home server. Last year we talked about the reasons for having a server. So the topic today is setting up your own home server!
We have talked about preventing overheating of your computers in a few different posts on the blog. One of the methods mentioned was a “heatsink service”, which entails replacing the thermal grease on the heatsink. But we never really explained what a heat sink is, or what it (and the thermal grease) actually does. So we aim to fix that oversight today!
As we mentioned previously, nearly every computing and communication technology is becoming more geared toward mobility. The workhorses of that movement are the classic laptop. The laptop was the original mobile computing device. The IBM 5100, the first commercially available portable computer, appeared in September 1975. Laptops are also known as notebooks, ultrabooks, and netbooks.
