Happy and Healthy are the most important things in life.Written by Stephen Hill
The world is becoming obsessed with money and all things material. From size of your house, type of car and even where you travel on your holidays, some people are trying to go one better do their friends and family.
For me these people are quite sad. I have a friend who is similar to people above, he is always thinking of money, always talking about money. How to earn it, how to spend it etc. He is part of a lottery syndicate, there are about fifty people in this syndicate. When he goes out on Saturday evening, he always takes with him a piece of paper with numbers on and a little pen. At around nine o'clock he phones his girlfriend and she tells him what numbers are for that particular night. He then spends around twenty minutes checking numbers, and then re-checking to see if he has any winning lines.
He then returns from toilet area and is asked by other members of group about how much he has won/lost. He has yet to have any major win to this point, this does not deter him however and for next hour, he will start a debate, asking different people how they would spend their winnings, if they ever won lottery.
Be Prepared Before Buying SoftwareWritten by Christopher Curtis
Before you go to store to buy software write down your computers specifications. You'll need type and speed of processor. How much ram your computer has. What kind of video card? How much disk space is available? Usually, these things are easy to find on your computer.
On Windows you can navigate to "Programs >Accessories >System Tools." Then click on "System Information" and you should see a summary containing your computers operating system, processor, and memory information. Next click on plus sign to expand "Components" category. There under "Display" you will find your computers video card specifications. You may also need to know what kind of sound card is installed. Select "Sound Device" to see name and manufacturer of this device. Under "Storage" you can select Drives to check how much available disk space you have. This will be labeled "free Space." Other information you may need, depending on type of program, are network and modem specs.
Once You have selected a piece of software make sure that it is compatible with your computer. Most software programs come on CDs now and will include their minimum requirements somewhere on packaging. They may require that you have a special video card or adapter. It may require that you have a particular type of processor, so make sure that your computers processor is equal or better. Make sure you have enough ram to run program. Usually, they will give a minimum and a recommended amount, but I have always found that it is best to go with recommended amount.
