Office 2013 License Upset

If your going out to buy the new Office 2013 license, read this first before you go out and spend the extra cash. 
Microsoft is claiming that any retail Office license of 2013 is tied to the computer that it's installed on. So let's say your computer goes bad or motherboard just dies. Your out of luck and have to cough up the extra cash to get a new license for 2013 on a new computer. The same goes for computer upgrades.
Big disappoint from Microsoft for the retail side of business and I hope customers will complain enough and ban the purchase of Office 2013 until Microsoft changes it selling practices.

Tweak Disk Cleanup

Disk Cleanup is a utility file that's built into Windows to clean up temporary files left by programs or files that you were working on. If the file is open or not in use, at times Windows plays it safe and doesn't delete them.
If you want Disk Cleanup to always cleanup your temporary folder here is the registry tweak to do this.
I caution you tweak your registry at your own risk and follow the instructions below.

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Explorer\ VolumeCaches\ Temporary Files

Locate and double-click on LastAccess. When you see the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, change the Value Data setting from 7 to 0 and click OK. Setting it at 0 will make Disk Cleanup Tool delete all the files. If you set it at say 1, it will not clean the last 1 days temp files.

Live Gold Prices

Have scrap gold to sell and wondering how much you can get for your useless gold pieces. Here's what you need to know before you decide to sell your gold. Gold prices vary with the amount of carat the gold pieces were made of. Anything that is 24 ct gold is worth way more than 18 ct and 10 ct gold. And if your planing on selling your gold, the best offer you'll get in most places is 1/4 of the current market price. But you need to know how many ounces your carat of gold weighs before hand.
My advice to you is never settle for the first bid on gold your selling, don't fall for vendors charging you to price your gold and shop around for the best offer. It is what it is, but you can still sell your gold and still make a decent profit. Good luck.
