I found this as I was strolling through flickr. I didn't have an SE, but I had a Classic II which looked very similar to this computer. I bought it in 1991, and I am pretty sure it probably still works even though I haven't booted in up in a few years. This is supposedly displayed in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, according to the description on flickr.

1. Update your OS with all patches.
2. Scan your computer with updated virus software.
3. Schedule and run scandisk.
4. Schedule and run a defrag.
5. Scan for spyware/adware. Make sure these programs are updated.
6. Uninstall unused programs, especially if you downloaded freebies.
7. Backup your My Documents folder. This typically contains most users' documents.
8. Empty the Recycle Bin. Yes, it takes up space, too!
9. Run cleanup utilities such as disk cleanup or CCleaner.
10. If you're up to it, image your machine and store the image on a network storage device or CD/DVD.
11. Clean up and back up your email accounts, particularly if you use Outlook or Outlook Express.
12. Clean out your temporary Internet files, as well as any temp files. Some of this will be done with disk cleanup.
13. If you use wireless encryption on your home network, change your passphrase or security phrase.
14. Dust off your keyboard and inside of your computer with a can of compressed air. You can do this every 2-3 months depending upon your environment. Schools are very dusty, so once a month is probably a good choice!
Regular maintenance on your computer is just like changing the oil on your car. It can mean the life of the machine.

Today was such a gorgeous day outside. I got out my mom's new camera, and I chased a couple of butterflies around the cherry blossoms. One of them just seemed to enjoy posing for me! He would sit so still and motionless as I snapped pic after pic. At one point, I noticed he has a little hole in his wing, but he went from tree to tree to land on the blossoms. The wind was blowing a little and the butterflies would just hover around because they were trying to fly into the wind, but it was too strong for them! They kept plugging along, though, until they could finally get back to the trees.
You can view more of them here.

You learn something every day, I guess.
Enjoy...it's a little loud, so turn down the speakers some.
I think it's cool when kids show off their talents like this.
