WOW! Lots of cool stuff on my show today! First of all, thanks to my guests on my segment “Edumacate Me!” – Marybeth Nave and Fritz Capulong!
Thanks for giving me and my listeners an “Edumacation” today. In case you missed it, they are both TV show hosts who work at an online job portal, Marybeth being the Vice President of Human Resources for that said job portal. They talked about how to succeed at getting a job as well as how to succeed at dating! They compare getting a job to going on a blind date as you don’t know what to expect for both of them and also because for both, in order to succeed, you need to leave a positive lasting impression that makes you stand out.
Fritz and Marybeth promised to send me a summary of things they talked about, so will have that by early next week. Also, you can contact them at MarybethNave@gmail.com and Fritz.Capulong@gmail.com if you have more questions.

Fact or Fiction
You can recover data from a failing hard drive by putting it in the freezer for a few hours and then reinstalling it in the computer.
While this method won’t magically fix whatever is wrong with your computer, it can get your hard drive working long enough for you to recover important data before it gives up the ghost for good. This generally works best when the drive is making a tell-tale clicking sound caused by overheated metal parts that have expanded. Freezing the hard drive cools and shrinks the metal so the drive will mount properly and run long enough (hopefully) for you to copy your files to another source.
DISCLAIMER – I have no clue if this works or for what type of problems this can really work on. Just found this online.
Reason to party today – coz it’s happy hour somewhere in the world.
