I usually surf with firefox(i made some speed seetings) , and hear music from youtube on chromium(is faster on youtube.)

Last i found about Passing of Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) , he devoted his life to the project with the support of his family, ,, the memorial fund,,,All donations will go directly to Jayne's treatment for her Multiple Sclerosis...
All we can help,, together.
