Top ten Tuesday a Day Late PC Utilities

Today is my Tuesday. Yesterday I spent the first part of my evening putting holes in my wall with Bobby Downing to find a leak and the rest of the night cleaning up the mess. So I did not have a lot of time or energy to post so I will try to post twice tonight (The Production Blog Coming Later).

I spend a lot of time working on Apple computers and I love them. People assume that I work on Macs all day long which is incorrect. I work on PCs all day long. I write programs, monitor systems and fix users computers. I don't think Apples are for everyone and I am not an Apple Elitist though some of my friends may tell you otherwise. I choose to use Apple for the church and in my personal life for a lot of reasons but not because I hate windows. In fact I really like windows 7 now if they could only do something with Explorer.
