PC Speed Boost with SSD (Solid State Drive) Upgrade

It was time to reinstall Windows on my 5 year old Acer Aspire 6930 and I found that I couldn’t. I suspected bad sectors on my HDD (Hard Disk Drive).

I installed Ubuntu 14.04 operating system (a distribution of Linux) as an interim measure as an alternative to Windows.

Although Ubuntu installed on my faulty drive, I could not install my important graphics and music software such as Cubase, Band in a Box and Corel Draw.

SSDs, just like stick USB drives don’t have any moving parts which make them faster and more reliable. I installed a Samsung SSD 840 EVO. I recommend the upgrade.

Selling my Rings…

Hey everybody, a few years ago I had planned to drive around the country playing gigs and doing market stalls. For the market stalls I bought a lot of costume jewelry rings because they were easily transportable and they don’t degrade. Anyway, long story for another day but I never did that trip and I still have all the rings.

They are all for sale as a job lot. Here is a quick video to show you what I have. In the near future I will do a stocktake to figure out how many of each type that I have.
All enquiries welcome.
