McDonald’s – home of the desperate for the internet

echnology is a wonderful thing when it works. The main computer has gotten itself into a real mess and is operating at teenager with chores speed. On looking at programmed tasks, I discover that the weekly defragmentation is set for 1 am rather than 1 pm and consequently it hasn’t been defragged in about six years. Oops. On setting it to analyse, it takes about an hour to do 10% so OH goes down to the rental units and I try and load some new properties. My laptop is also very slow and a speed test shows we are down to .4 of a giga. Ring up the provider and wail. She says she will do a manipulation and the speed goes up to 1.4 for about 20 minutes.
