    I know that most of you have computers (since you are posting on MLP duh). Well now I am offering my services to you for a limited time only. I am sort of a wiz when it comes to computers. I have experience with windows, Linux , and a little bit of mac OSX. So if you have a question feel free to ask and I will try to answer it for you. Also if you know anything about computers check in and see if you can answer some of the questions.

    My brother just got his computer up and running. His connection seems to be good, as it appears files are loading at a good speed, such as on Youtube. However, when we try to play the video, it goes for two seconds, then stops.
    Would he perhaps need to upgrade his Flash player?

    I have never worked with IBM Job control language. I currently only now a little bit of actual languages. I started this thread because I am constantly answering computing questions about friends problems with their operating system and or hardware related problems so I thought why not start a thread on MLP. If you have questions about using a Linux box or HTML and CSS I may be able to help you out.

    EDIT: see my post below

    Yes you most likely need to update flash player to the most recent. I was having problems with this on my linux machine previously and updating the Flash player will probably help. Also you could try making sure you have the most recent version of the browser you are using. I highly recommend Firefox if you want to try a different browser.

    There is no definate answer for how often you should defrag. It is like how often should i change strings. I would do it more often if you are constantly installing or removing stuff and less if your not. As far as optimization goes with Vista turn off anything you dont use. I would turn off automatic updates and only update occasionally followed immediately after by a defrag. Also if you are using the installation that was on your computer from the factory i would recommend reloading it because in most cases the factory puts a bunch of extra crap on as well.

    I did re-load my computer from scratch because something odd was going on, not really sure what was happening. It's like a brand new computer, but of course we all want more speed. I've got a 320 Gig HD and 4 gig of RAM, can't be happier with my labtop.

    OS/2 Warp was and is not the greatest os ever made. Linux is.

    EDIT: OS/2 was a joint IBM Microsoft operating system. However Microsoft went on to make Windows and IBM supported OS/2 until 2006.
