I'm Cleaning Out My Closet

Song: Cleaning Out My Closet
Artist: Eminem
Album: The Eminem Show (Pass:

So, lately my MacBook has been running slow. It's about 2 years old now, and I use it everyday. I do some unscrupulous downloading when it comes to music. (Although, apparently nothing is worse for your computer than downloading Porn, it has all types of yicky stuff in it.) It would take like 4 minutes to get photoshop to run, and finder ran like Molasses on a winter day. Since apparently Apple's don't get viruses (this is a farce) I figured there wasn't much I could do, but run "Software Updater" and repair my disk permissions. That didn't do much, so after a little splunking, in the cavernous wonderland that is the techno-blogosphere, I came across a wonderfull application, called Cocktail.

It combines the Disk Utilities, with the unix based scripts that help rid your computer of harmful and lethargic files. It doesn't add anything to your computer, rather it bunches up all the useful tool UNIX and Mac OS X give you to maintain your system. Now my Apple is running almost as fast as when I first got it, there is very little lagging, and applications run smoothly and cleanly. Firefox used to Force Quit itself on me all the time, and it hasn't once since I ran a comprehensive cleanup on my machine. It's almost like an Oil Change and a Tuneup for your computer, a must have for any AppleHead.

Happy Trails.
