The New Year and Good IT Habits

We are already halfway through January. By now most people have stopped greeting each other with a cheerful “Happy New Year!” Many New Years’ resolutions to start good new habits have already been broken.

However, there are better ways to approach your relationship with computers.

Proactive Maintenance Leads to Improved Computer Health

 

“We are what we repeatedly do,” Aristotle proclaimed. We all know that we should brush our teeth twice a day, eat healthy, and get regular exercise. Sadly, not everyone does this.
