    Visio Alternative

    Looking for a free Visio alternative for my son. He needs to draw standard flowcharts for school subjects, and has been using Word shapes up to now. This seems cumbersome, and he needs something better. Visio is not worth the cost for the basics that he needs it for. My friend Google shows many...

We're used to this and it normally takes up to an hour (while Vuma DDOS'es themselves) for a connection to be established. My son decides to switch on the TV and...

    Time for a New Laptop

    So my 5 year old laptop screen is starting to give up on me. Black lines recently started appearing across the screen. Not sure of the cause, they just appeared.
