    Computer MAC question

    In Windows IE, I always use Tools, Internet Options, delete files and clear my cookies, files, etc to make my 'puter work little bit faster.
    But in MAC, what do I click to clear out and make it work a little better???

    The views and comments of E-man are mine and mine alone and therefore might not reflect the views of others or people in my current department. As such since this is still America I can post what I want without fear of retribution. I think.

    RIP Eric

    Are you using Internet Explorer? If so, just go to Tools, Internet Options and delete files. Probably won't make it work any faster, but no one will see chickswithdicks.com cookies

    What browser are you using? If you're using Safari, go to the Safari menu on your toolbar and click "Empty Cache."

    Or just shut it down, throw it away and get a real computer.

    IBM clone users are at least twice as smart as Apple users, because IBM mice had at least two buttons and Apple mice only have one.

    We are the thin blue line
    between you
    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.

    If it's Safari, just drop down the Safari menu - oops! Left out Preferences! then - under Security you can control cookies/cache.

    Firefox = Tools, Options, Privacy, then look for the 'cookies' and 'cache' tabs.

    Here is another way that you can also clear your computer.

    Click on "My Computer"

    Click on "C" drive if that is your main drive

    Click on "Windows"

    Then click on "Cookies"

    Click on "Edit"

    "Select all"

    Click on "File"

    Click on "Delete"

    Arrow back and repeat these steps to clear "History" and then "Temporary Internet Files".

    Then empty your trash can.

    Every now and then turn your computer off, unplug it and wait for the green light in the back to go out. After that plug you computer in and turn your computer back on.

    Do you want to know what else you can clear?

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.
