Should You Upgrade Vista to Windows 7?

I have 5 computers in my house that have all finally been happily upgraded to Vista. They've been chugging along with no problems- but all the press I've seen indicates that Windows 7 is more intuitive, and might make computing smoother. I'm not sure I'm ready to take the plunge for all of them yet, as I'm concerned about "first round bugs", but I might take the plunge this weekend and install Windows 7 on one of our machines so I can play around with it. I found a step by step instruction guide on Mahalo that covers how to upgrade from Vista to Windows 7, and thought I'd share it in case any one else needed some tips and tricks to make their Windows 7 install quick and easy!

Get Ready for National Daiquiri Day, July 19

July has a number of holidays worth celebrating. There's Independence Day on July 4. 7- Eleven celebrates July 11 by giving away free Slurpees. The French rejoice on Bastille Day, July 14. And on July 19, we can all raise our glasses to celebrate National Daiquiri Day!

What form of daiquiri will you be indulging in to celebrate? A traditional straight up rum and lime juice concoction? A frozen daiquiri? A fruity frozen daiquiri? Whatever your pleasure, I've done the research and assembled a daiquiri how to collection which should meet your needs. Just don't try them all on July 19!
