lies like truth

December 31, 2007

I've been blogging for exactly a year. Blimey. It's been a surreal 12 months. Little did I know when I embarked upon this five-day-week side-gig on January 1, 2007 that I would still be doing it today. Seems like a fitting moment to share a few small thoughts about the future of this endeavor:

1. It took me 10 and a half months to get around to installing Google Analytics code on my blog. I'm so glad I did it, though I regret not doing it much sooner. It's been exciting to see the rise and fall of visitors to this blog over the past couple of months and tracking where people come from.

2. Could it be time to start adding images to this blog (as I do with all the rest of the content on my website?) Might be kinder on the eye than merciless unbroken reams of text.

3. Finally, I've decided to give this blog a name. So, as of about 20 minutes ago, I'm christening it "lies like truth", a title inspired by a collection of writings by the great theatre director and critic Harold Clurman. In the epigraph to his book, Clurman quotes Picasso: “Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth,” and Macbeth, “I … begin to doubt the equivocation of the fiend that lies like truth.” What I love about art is its way of messing with the truth -- of telling us what's really going on in the world through the medium of fiction. Call it the Matrix Effect or what you will, but it's a powerful sentiment, whatever name you give it.

These days, it's becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish between fact and fantasy. Alan Bennett’s doollally headmaster in Forty Years On echoes this sentiment precisely when he says, “What is truth and what is fable? Where is Ruth and where is Mabel?” It's one of the main jobs of this blog to celebrate the confusion and perhaps, on occasion, attempt to unpick the knot.



  • Love the new name!

  • A computer registry is a Windows specific aspect of a computer. It contains information on just about everything a computer does. And cleaning it can certainly be a long and tedious project. Below are some things to consider for how to clean up computer registry with registry cleaner.

    The first thing anyone should know about cleaning a registry is to not do it manually. Consider the fact that everything your computer does is on there, from web browsing to installed programs. So if a file gets deleted or replaced without knowing what it does, it could seriously damage the computer.

    The alternative option is to use a registry cleaning program. But, before anything is done to the registry, a backup needs to be made (that way, if something is broken, it can be restored). Usually, third-party programs have a way of doing it themselves. For the ones that don't, there's a manual way to do it, using the Windows Registry Editor.

    When using a third-party program, it's important to know which ones won't accidentally break the computer. Some programs can delete key registry items and cause more problems than they solve. As such, it's best to check either ZDNet, CNET, PC world, or PC magazine for the latest on helpful (and harmful) programs to use.

    By cleaning up the registry, old (and even unused) registry items are removed, giving a little more space and a lot more processing power. Old registries, such as the ones from uninstalled files, usually connect to locations that don't exist or that can't be found, slowing down the computer. By removing them, the computer can focus on the task at hand.

  • Regardless of the chances, dreams extremist and a considerable measure of obligation strapped individuals are thinking about whether it is still workable for them to purchase a house even after chapter 11. You might be astounded however the appropriate response is yes.
