Automating Clean Manager in Windows

Using clean manager on older versions of Windows (in particular) always requires setting the options, which isn’t hard, but makes it a little hard to automate as part of a larger process of cleaning up your drive.

I made my life a little easier to run clean manager by writing a batch file (and registry file) that you can downloads (in a 7z archive) via cleanup_disk.7z

Early Vote

Early vote started yesterday, and I expected there would be long lines so I waited until this after.  In fact I just got back.

The workers confirmed there were long lines yesterday — today I just walked right in, got the ballet, voted, and scanned it into the reader… no wait, no hassle (of course, I’m a white male in one of the least ethnically diverse counties in Florida… so the tightened voting restrictions really aren’t designed to hassle me).

My job is done, and once again I voted mostly against candidates and issues — it’s sad, but you need to base a reasonable decision on something — and I’ll consider it similar to the Hippocratic Oath (never do harm — or in this case, minimize the harm).

Regardless of your particular party affiliation, I believe everyone should exercise their right and contribute by making an informed vote.
