National Clean Out Your Computer Day

Tuesday, February 12 is “National Clean Out Your Computer Day”. Have you received a message from CIT saying you’re nearing your email quota? Do you find it impossible to locate documents you’re sure you have? Do you really need to keep that not-so-funny joke your father’s brother’s nephew’s cousin’s former room-mate sent you?

Take the opportunity today to clean out your computer, before the semester gets any more stressful. Take some time to:

  • Delete old email messages
  • Organize your bookmarks/favorites. Try an online bookmarking service that allows tagging, like del.icio.us or Google Bookmarks.
  • Clean off your desktop. How many of those items do you really use?
  • Backup your important files. You don’t want to loose your music library, do you?
