This may be a bit late for summer of 2013 but you can certainly store them
for next year!
If you wish to preserve your bathing suit from the chlorine and/or seawater,
then try this!
Put your bathing suit under some cold water in the shower or in a sink.
Ring well, then put it on.
It may be a bit uncomfortable but it does work.
If you wish to get the sweat stains out of your bathing suit then try this:
Place your bathing suit in a mixture of cold water and lemon juice.
Soak for a few minutes then rinse.
If you wish to get stains out of your white summer clothes:
Try using ice cubes.
Pass them over the stains and then rinse.
Do this until the stains are gone.
Finally, if you want to stop the bleeding after you have nicked yourself
then try this:
Use clear lip balm over the nick.

If you are an avocado eater then this is for you!
If you wish to eat just a part of the avocado after cutting it then:
Sprinkle some lemon juice over the uneaten portion then refridgerate.

Here’s something somewhat trivia for you and it is all about dogs again!
They sneeze through their nose and not through their mouth.

On the more serious side of things:
You can send an email using your browser!
Go to the address bar in your browser and type:
mailto:
Then press the enter key.
Voila! You are now ready to type your message!
You can enter all of the parameters that you normally do when in your normal
email client.
Have fun now!

Here’s something to keep in mind the next time you decide to give a tip at
the restaurant:
If you put your tip on your credit card bill you can be sure that the
waiter/waitress that looked after you will probably not receive it.
In most cases, your tip will return to the restaurant’s owners.
So if you wish to give a direct tip then you can do so with straight cash.

August may be gone but here is some info for August of 2014!
It is probably the hottest month of the year in several parts of the world.
It is the month that many say when the seas are the calmest.

If you are traveling to Europe any time soon then this one is for you!
Make sure that you understand all about those rates for Internet access.
Internet access across Europe is much different to that of North America.
For whereas in North America many hotels provide free wifi access it is not
the same for Europe.

The AVG Rescue CD

AVG has just released a free rescue CD that can be used to recover your
computer when the system cannot be loaded normally, such as after an
extensive or deep-rooted virus infection.

The AVG Rescue CD enables you to fully remove infections from an otherwise
inoperable PC and render the system bootable again.

This could also be handy for folks who recently were locked out of their PCs
by a faulty update installed by BitDefender and Bullguard (which uses the
same engine and signatures) which rendered many 64 bit machines useless.

The AVG Rescue CD aims to help people so affected to recover their system.
Essentially, it is a portable version of AVG Anti-Virus embedded in a
version of Linux so it doesn’t need Windows to operate.

You can choose to download for use with either as a bootable CD or USB
stick. Apart from the AV program the software also contains a variety of
useful system tools for restarting a PC such as a file manager and registry
editor.

The AVG Rescue CD is completely free of charge. There is a FAQ and free
forum for the product, but only people with an AVG commercial license are
entitled to receive technical support. The AVG Rescue CD is currently only
available in English. More information and download links here:

A user guide for AVG Rescue CD is available here :

http://www.avg.com/us-en/226386

The user guide contains steps to make the bootable CD, and also step by step
guide to create a USB bootable device. Some steps are to be given proper
attention while preparing the USB stick, as a wrong step in choosing the
proper disk may render Windows unbootable. So, please read the steps
carefully. The user guide also shows how to use the Rescue CD, along with
screenshots. Users are advised to read the user guide carefully, before
attempting to create CD/USB stick, and also before using the Rescue CD.

Video tutorials on using the AVG Rescue CD are also available on this page :

A bad habit can ruin your digital life just as easily as it can harm your
offline one.

You bite your nails. Your house is a sty. You never signal before changing
lanes, and when you finally reach your destination, you’re 30 minutes late.

We all have bad habits in real life. Why can’t technology help cure them?
While technology should help us break bad habits, all too often it makes
things worse.

Are you guilty of a bad tech habit? Here are 21 of the worst
technology-oriented habits, plus potential fixes for all of them. (And we
have a bonus at the end, on mending bad email habits.)

Someone can easily take your gear if you leave it sitting unattended.

The typical gadget isn’t stolen by thieves who’ve done lots of planning. No,
most gadget heists are conceived and executed in seconds, and probably
