Suppose you find something being typed in all caps like in the following example that you want to use, what would you do?
SOME USEFUL TEXT YOU WANT TO USE BUT IT IS IN THE WRONG CASE
The conventional way is to use the "insert" button and retype the sentence in the proper capitalization i.e. capitalize the beginning of each sentence only. But imagine a whole paragraph in caps lock and the task would be very tedious. Don't you wish you could just change the capistalization? Well you can!
Just copy the text into Microsoft word and click on the Aa button (). Then select "sentence case." That should fix the problem!
This has been another useful tip from Tyw. Until next time, stay safe!

Be careful of Twitter bots that may "at (@)" you if your tweet a certain keywords. Their tweets often contain links that contain possible malicious/unwanted software. Example of such a bot ishttps://twitter.com/#!/ravenabuf
. Make sure you DO NOT click the link. Instead, click on the arrow and click report for spamming (see screenshot).
This is Wikipedian saying stay safe and be vigilant!

I frequently find my self using these two free softwares when I'm using public computers ie Library computers:
* Google Chrome: http://www.google.com/chrome
* Ccleaner Portable: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/portable
Google Chrome is a nice alternative browser to the IE that are usually installed on Library's PCs. Chrome installation does not require admin permission and so can be slipped in.
CCleaner is used to wipe all traces of your browsing logs. First go to the downloaded file and unzip. After opening the program, go to option > Settings:Note: Screenshot taken from the developer website.
Check both drives and toggle to secure file delete (I select 35 over over writes). The go to cleaner and check ALL the options (both tabs). Then hit Run Cleaner. After that wait for the program to churn away. You can run this as your are browsing but just before you finish your session, go to the options and toggle to Normal File deletion and uncheck wipe free space and hit Run Cleaner again. That way it would wipe all traces of your session. Don't forget to delete the zip file and the ccleaner program just before you log out!
