Delete Unwanted Accounts Painlessly
Have you ever wanted to delete an account only to find that no matter how hard you look, you can’t find the option to do that anywhere? Me too. Isn’t it funny how it only takes a few seconds to create an account on these sites but it often takes forever to find out how to delete the account?

Whatever the reason may be, I’m sure you’ll find that this little cheat sheet will make deleting those unwanted accounts quick, easy and painless.

How To Edit or Delete a Locked File or Folder So, you’re doing your annual Spring cleaning. OK, your apartment still looks like an ECW match happened in it, but you’re cleaning old files off your PC. You go to delete a text file you no longer need and”¦ Cannot delete file: It is being used by another person or program. D’oh! This is likely the most frustrating thing I’ve ever dealt with during my tenure as a computer nerd. The free File & Folder Unlocker does exactly as advertised. In this example from the program’s download site, the file Myletter.txt is being held captive by a hex-editor program. I recommend File and Folder Unlocker not because of its advanced features, but because of its portability. How to write a thank-you note Question: I have a crushing inability to write proper thank-you notes. Can you offer me some guidelines? —Helen Answer: I was wondering when you were going to ask that question, and frankly, I’m a little disappointed it took you so long. Somewhere in between your mom making you sit down with your Peanuts® stationery and you shooting off an email, you completely lost touch with the concept of simple thank-you notes. Now that you’re a grown-up, an email just won’t do, and more is expected of you than scratching out ‘Thanks for the present, you rock!’ Grandma might not say anything to you, but trust me: She and her friends are probably at this very moment sighing over how young people today just don’t have manners. As extra motivation, I will also grudgingly tell you the hidden secret of thank-you notes: They improve the frequency and quality of the gifts you receive. I assure you, writing thank-yous is easier than you remember. 1. Dear Aunt Sally, 2. Thank you so much for the slippers. 3. 4.

How to Delete Accounts from Any Website - Features by PC Magazin Deleting accounts you've created on Facebook, MySpace, AOL, and elsewhere on the Web isn't always easy. Here are the details on leaving 23 services behind. The words "I wish I could quit you" take on a whole new meaning when you want out of a relationship with an online service.

6 Easy Tips for Living with 100 Items or Less Every few months, it seems like I read another story about someone who has sold or donated nearly everything they own, reducing their total number of personal possessions to under 100 items. There are lots of reasons for a person to want to do this. Maybe you’re moving across the country (or to a different country), and you need to pack light. Perhaps you’re trying to reduce your carbon footprint. Maybe you just watched a marathon of “Hoarders” and you’re feeling like it’s time to clean house. Whatever your motive, if you want to try living with 100 items or less, you’ll need to start thinking about what items you can’t live without. 1. Once you know what you have, categorize it. 2. A couch that converts into a bed is perfect for visiting guests. 3. For example, say you are a heavy tea drinker. 4. 5. Don’t be afraid of ditching something you might need in the future. 6. Obviously, your needs will vary depending on what line of work you are in.

The Darien Statements on the Library and Librarians On March 26th, Darien Library hosted an event called “In the Foothills: A Not-Quite-Summit on the Future of Libraries” at which participants were instructed to “come prepared to help sketch out the role librarians should play in defining the future of libraries”. The two speakers, John Berry and Kathryn Greenhill, provoked a conversation among me, Kathryn and Cindi Trainor that began in my office the next day and spilled out across the ensuing week.
