optimizing vista and testing out the Chrome browser

Recently I've been quite involved in doing the taxi exams, which are now over and passed! :-)
Other than that, I'm trying to get my Windows Vista back on track. It's quite lazy, seems like there's a lot of garbage and all kinds of resource-hogging things lying around. What's different from the age when I was running XP on my computer(s), is that I'm not that familiar with the aspects of optimizing Vista. I'm running System Mechanic by Iolo. It's a program designed to clean Vista out of excessive clutter, meaning it will erase futile files, processes etc.

I installed the Chrome browser by Google corp. today. Still to find out what it has to offer. It's been quite hot in IT topics recently. They only released it recently, having a goal of designing a modern web browser from scratch. I'm testing it out, and writing when I've formulated an opinion about Chrome.

got the taxi license today


It was a nice day. Woke up early at around 7 AM, and headed downtown to the police station. I got my taxi license from there. With the piece of paper, I went to another place to get the ID card. Now I'm ready to hit the streets and start making a career. I'm really looking forward to having customers and making good drives.
