DoctorLaptop’s April Special:
Slow Computer? My famous Clean & TuneUp Special is back, for Windows & Mac. Get your laptops full of winter dust ready for a hot summer. Until May 1st only €50! Bring 2 at the same time get a bonus discount, only €85 for the pair! If you rely on your computer and want it running at peak performance an annual professional servicing is necessary. You wouldn’t drive your car till it runs out of oil before servicing it, would you? I do the most comprehensive cleaning and tune-up possible: verify all System files replacing any found to be corrupt, test all hardware and do hard disk sector repairs if needed, use 5 tool malware/adware/spyware removal protocol, clean out junk files/logs/history/etc., update Windows + all drivers + programs, optimize your settings and registry for fastest overall performance, and clean airflow and fan. Job usually completed overnight. Heavily infected comps, computers taking more than 2 minutes to startup or shutdown, or those showing error messages need a repair, not a maintenance service. Hard disks of 1000Gb or more add €10 and may require 2 days to complete.

Horse Racing News- Rachael Blackmore is first female jockey to win Grand National, on Minella Times: As she has so often over the last few weeks, Rachael Blackmore did everything right here in the Grand National, and with a generous and willing partner in Minella Times and a little racing luck to help her on her way, it was enough to secure the first ever victory by a female jockey in the world’s most famous and demanding race.
In all, 32 horses with female riders had gone to post for the National before, and only Katie Walsh, who finished third on Seabass in 2012, had finished in the first four.
