Download of the Week: CCleaner
Few people wouldn’t like to free up hard disk space and have their computers run faster. Enter:
CCleaner not only cleans away traces of your online activities, it removes unused files from your system, which frees up valuable disk space.
A cursory skim through its features list shows that it cleans up old files and settings left by standard Windows components, checks for problems and inconsistencies in your computer’s Registry, and cleans out temporary files left behind by Firefox, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office, and Adobe Acrobat. And that’s just for starters.
CCleaner is a 100 percent-free download guaranteed not to contain any spyware, adware or viruses. Interested? Visit http://www.ccleaner.com to learn more.

Grab Bag: Five Random Links of the Week
– http://www.superest.com ” Love it. The Superest website exists solely to try and answer the question “Who is the superset hero of them all?”
With the occasional assistance of guest artists, two ridiculously talented illustrators (one of them being Kevin Cornell, whose work I absolutely adore) battle it out, back and forth, back and forth. One draws a character with a super power.
The other illustrator then draws a character with a power than cancels the power of the previous character. The cycle is repeated over and over and over again for your ongoing entertainment.

Head over to flickrvision.com and do nothing other than sit back, relax, and watch your monitor.
