Welcome, Fellow WinDOwS User,
This site is huge... 200+ pages with 1000+ tricks and counting.
Therefore you need to take a break from whatever you were doing, brew a fresh coffee pot, fill up your XL mug [but don't spill it on your keyboard], kick back, relax, and only after that, dig in, 1 tip at a time.
All steps must be performed in this exact order for maximum comfort. ;)
The main goal of these pages is to transform your PC into the ultimate, extremely tweaked machine you have always dreamed of by "squeezing" the last atom of performance it is capable of, to make it soar at MAX Speed.
Take your pick: navigate framed or UNframed...
Trapped inside someone else's frames? Bust OUT now!
