Listen up egg hunters!  I’m not talking plastic eggs filled with candy delights here but hidden egg-stra surprises for us big kids as we browse the internet.  If you’re not aware of internet Easter eggs, they’re hidden games or graphics that are planted around the web or buried in sites that you can hunt up for a little extra enjoyment.  For instance, Google has a dinosaur game they deemed T-Rex Runner that you can play if your internet connection fails and a page won’t load.  Many people don’t realize it’s a fully functioning game!  Other surprises are just little hidden features that are nice to know, and some need special codes or tricks in order to find them.  If you need a break during your day, try some of these hidden eggs out for yourself!

Now that Spring is here (as I look outside to 36″ of snow), it’s time to do a little PC cleaning. Saving space on your PC has a lot of benefits. Not only does it mean your machine files stay tidy, it also keeps it running smoothly.

Most users aren’t aware that there are hundreds – if not thousands – of unnecessary and unused files sitting on their PC, just gathering virtual dust. Some are tiny note files, others are larger installation packages, but big or small, you don’t need them and they are a useless waste of space. If you want to give your PC a good clean, follow these tips.

We’re all well aware of the controversy on how much screen time, if any, is healthy for kids, so I’m not here to debate the subject but rather inform you of a new side product that Facebook has launched.  Have your kids ever used your messenger app to talk to their grandparents, aunts, or uncles, but gotten distracted by messages from your friends popping up that you’d prefer they didn’t have access to?  Now, we all know children under the age of 13 are prohibited from creating their own Facebook account, so Messenger Kids is an attempt to satisfy this need for communication in the younger age group, while keeping safety and privacy at the forefront.
