One wonders how bad things have to get before you “need” to defragment.
Also, has anyone noticed that the Windows 2000 defragmenter is more aggressive than that supplied with Windows XP in terms of defragmenting free space?

Google users get two April Fools’ jokes this year: Google TiSP and Gmail Paper. And this year they’re actually funny. About Gmail Paper:

I try to avoid linking to The New Yorker for obvious reasons (I was one–shh!), but this will be worth it since it finally solves what was possibly my first (apparently formative) experience with conspiracy theories: the Halloween UNICEF boxes! (no usable anchors in the page, so scroll to item II)
SERVANT: No, sir, of course not! We just gave them the boxes and told them to collect for UNICEF. We said it was for â€œa good cause,â€ but we didnâ€™t get any more specific than that.
