DYing art of joke telling

Joke-telling may be a dying art, but we can take a lesson from our comic geniuses.

If we're to believe a new survey, some 40 per cent of adults today would rather share gags via email than swap one-liners face-to-face.

Ricky Gervais
The art of timing: Ricky Gervais

Would-be comedians these days dispatch shaggy dog stories or visual gags - and in so doing have lost the art of timing and delivery. Joke tellers wander about the stage and delivers gags. We don't learn much about his life and times we aren't given a sermon on the ills of the world and he doesn't try to touch our souls or make us think deeply about society

Lenny Henry, on his recent quest for the British sense of humour, worried about the damage to social cohesion as a consequence of joke-telling's decline. Struggling to find any fresh "Englishman, Irishman and Scotsman" patter, he asked whether political correctness hadn't put paid to our willingness to risk a joke to break the ice.

Another survey two years ago suggested in all seriousness that the amount of time we spend laughing every day had fallen from an average of 18 minutes in the 1950s to just six minutes today.

The truth is that there never was a golden age for telling jokes; most people have always been pretty rubbish at it. That's why comedians tend to earn rather a lot if they get it right. And while we should be worrying if comics themselves had given up, we're actually living through a boom time in good, old-fashioned one-liners.

    windows xp maintenance tasks

    If your computer seems slower than it used to be, it probably is. Over time, computers get slower because files become disorganized and resources are consumed by unnecessary software. Fortunately, Microsoft Windows XP includes tools to clean up your computer and restore its performance. The five steps in this article will walk you through the use of these tools to tune up your computer.

    Note:- Take Backup of all your data before proceeding any of the following tasks

    Remove unused programs

    First, remove programs you don’t use anymore. Programs take up space on your computer, and some run in the background without your Knowledge. Removing programs you don’t use can help restore your computer’s performance.

    Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

    Click Add or Remove Programs.

    In the Currently installed programs list, click the program that you want to remove. Then, click Remove or Change/Remove.The below program is an example.

    Follow the instructions that appear to remove your program. Each program has a different process. Restart your computer if prompted.

    Install and run antispyware or Adaware software

    You should always have an antispyware program installed, because spyware might install itself on your computer without your knowledge. After you install the antispyware program, run it to detect and remove any unwanted programs.

    My recommended Programs

    Ad-Aware 2007 Download from here

    Spybot Search&Distroy Download from here

    Hijackthis Download from here

    Windows Defender Download from here

    Run Disk Cleanup tool

    Removing unused programs is a great way to free up disk space, which will speed up your computer. Another way to find wasted disk space is to use the Disk Cleanup tool.

    Disk Cleanup is available on both Home and Professional versions of XP. The utility can be accessed in one of the following methods isted below.

    Click Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup


    Click Start>Run type cleanmgr and click OK


    In Windows Explorer or My Computer, right-click the disk in which you want to free up space, click Properties, click the General tab, and then click Disk Cleanup.

    Once it opens you should see similar to the following screen here select the files and click ok

    Defragment your hard disk drive

    As advanced as hard drives have become, one item they are not very good at is housekeeping, or maybe that should be drive keeping. When files are created, deleted, or modified it’s almost a certainty they will become fragmented. Fragmented simply means the file is not stored in one place in its entirety, or what computer folks like to call a contiguous location. Different parts of the file are scattered across the hard disk in noncontiguous pieces. The more fragmented files there are on a drive, the more performance and reliability suffer as the drive heads have to search for all the pieces in different locations. The Disk Defragmenter Utility is designed to reorganize noncontiguous files into contiguous files and optimize their placement on the hard drive for increased reliability and performance.

    You can open the disk Defragment using one of the following procedure

    Use the Properties of Your Local Disk

    Open My Computer

    Right-click the local disk volume that you want to defragment, and then click Properties.

    On the Tools tab, click Defragment Now.

    Click Defragment.


    Use Computer Management MMC

    Start Computer Management MMC (Compmgmt.msc).

    Click Disk Defragmenter.

    Click the volume that you want to defragment, and then click Defragment.


    Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defragmenter


    Start>Run>and type dfrg.msc Click OK

    The Disk Defragmenter appears. Click your hard disk drive, and then click Defragment.

    Disk Defragmenter will work for at least several minutes, although it might take several hours. When prompted, click Close.

    Sample report as follows

    Disconnect unused network connections

    Mapping network drives allows one computer to read and write files to another computer’s hard disk drive as if they were directly connected to each other.The problem with network drives is that Windows XP will attempt to connect to the network drive when it starts up. If the remote computer does not respond immediately, Windows XP will wait, which will slow down your startup time.

    Additionally, some programs will attempt to connect to the network drive when you browse for files and folders. If you have ever tried to open a file and had to wait several seconds, it is probably because the program was trying to establish a network connection—even if the file you are opening is on your local computer.

    Click Start, and then click My Computer.

    In the Tools menu, click Disconnect Network Drive.

    Select the network drives that you no longer need, and then click OK.

    Clear your Internet History

    For IE6 Users

    Open Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0

    Click Tools.

    Click Internet Options.

    Click Clear History.

    Click OK.

    For IE 7 Users

    Open Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0

    Click Tools and select Internet Options

    Select General Under Browsing History click on Delete Button

    Here you need to delete the marked IE History

    You need to perform these steps at least every 4 month
