    I disagree about needing to reboot Windows daily. My general rule of thumb is "when the computer needs a update". My work XP computer is on 24/7 and reboots only for software updates, my laptop with Windows 7 is the same, but I hibernate that for a few days at a time. If you are running an older WinOS than XP you deserve to reboot daily.

    Duly noted. No reason not to, other than wear and tear on the power supply and hard disks (which is negligible at best).

    My laptop? I shut it off every night.

    My work computer? I only shut it off at the end of the week. It's a POS and takes forever to boot, so I don't do it more than I have to.

    Both laptop and desktop only get rebooted when an update or newly installed piece of software requires it, pretty much. Standby, otherwise. They routinely go weeks without being rebooted.

    I reboot my computer maybe an average of once a week, when it starts to slow down.

    Incorrect. You should actually attempt to google before posting.

    How dare you!

    I'll have you know that I most certainly googled "How often does JC reboot his computer?".

    The Mr. Google was no help with that one.

    I do agree it needs to be Kraft American Cheese however, they are the only ones who make really good "processed cheese food product". I also use a good dense white bread, like Wonder bread, and finally BUTTER (preferably very soft sitting in the butter dish all day). I prefer grilled cheese plain, no pickles or condiments, often served with a glass of milk.
    I use garlic butter.

    Tomato soup on the side, plz !
