Here's a better answer... Get an SSD. Not only do you get faster boot times with an SSD but your system's overall performance will be so much better with an SSD. Save your money, don't buy this snake oil; buy an SSD instead.

If you have only drank the mass produced, mass marketed beers and say that you don't like beer, well then... that's your problem. Most mass produced swill is just that, swill. Please pour that back into the sick horse it came out of. If you want good beer, discover micro-brew.

Don't like it, don't drink it. It's okay. I don't like most hard liquor. And there are types of beer I don't like, but in general...MMMMMMM beer.

It took me a loong time to like beer. I'm not fond of the trend of really hoppy beers, and prefer Belgians. I still like craft cocktails better on the whole, but beer is worth acquiring a taste for.

I really like beer. The learning-to-like-beer phase for me was short. I do think it's kind of silly to keep drinking it if you don't like it though. Why would a grown person spend their money on something they don't like?

Beer tasting bad is a feature. You have to earn the right to be drunk.

It's not that you don't like beer - it's that you haven't found the beer for you yet...

Use this and get a DMCA notice? Nope, not worth it. Better to go and rent the content you want or buy it from iTunes or Amazon.com.

imdb is a website and is an acronym for "internet movie database".

No way, we gotta rewind and cross-reference this map with the list of coordinates we saw on the other screen. This Greenland thing could be big.

It's funny that we still use the term "rewind" -- physical media constructs are long-lasting!
