Well I just cleaned up my PC yesterday to give myself a speed boost and shave off 100GB of unused disk space so I'm happy with that software-wise. Hardware-wise? My whole setup was full of dust! :nono: I tolerate it so far, then it becomes unacceptable to work in such an environment and it needs a damn good cleanup! I grabbed the hoover and cleaned up my desk, monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, tower, shelf, and floor. Everything is so clean, shiny, and dust-free and I feel all happy and proud of myself
But how often do you actually clean your PC (software and hardware)? I know they say it's recommended to format your PC every 6 months and so on, but do you do this? Do you clean-up regularly or do you let your work environment clutter up with dust, little bits of food, spilled drink, and all sorts of nasty bacteria infested stuff until it comes to the point where you leave your desk for a bathroom break and your fingers are covered in dust?!
I don't have my own personal little "PC Cleanup Policy" (sounds cool though doesn't it?) but I think I might set myself one (just in a Word document) that will just be a bullet point list of what I should do and when I should do it, so I can keep on top of things rather than do it when it's really bad. Do you have something similar to this in place already? And is there anything like this in the workplace or do you have cleaners?
P.S Please don't post pictures of your filthy work environment! I've just had my breakfast!
