How to Make Computer Slower

It is not a joke. I was looking for adjustable tools to make computer slower. Yes I know, we can have it just by installing windows vista, software games or some heavy applications, but I need something general for my validation application that will run in many PCs. I entered keyword 'How to Make Computer Slower' in search engine that answers every problem in your life Google, all articles told me the other way. Don't they understand that this problem also important so I can finish my code and work and the boss will let me go home for Hari Raya holiday next week?! Well actually it is my fault to procrastinate everything :P

So after spent few times searching needles among the straws, I found this website that lists all PC Slow Down tools (now obviously that I didn't key in the exact keyword). I decided to use CPU Grabber because this software is from DirectX Microsoft so I believe it won't do much harm. Another good app is CPU Killer, but not a freeware.

CPU Grabber has small GUI with trackbar to set the percentage of CPU usage, and buttons to start/stop and close. So, if you need it either for playing old games, showing the slow PC to your parents so they will get you a new one, or running software validation in stressed environment like what I'm doing, just run number of copies of this program (number of your CPUs/cores) and set for each 70% or more.

So sorry this is being a geek posting, I hope it will boost up searching index of 'How to Make Computer Slower' in Google leads to the correct articles.

  5. As a fellow blogger, I thank you for your blog article. I also are searching how to slow down CPU, as I have circa 1992 tape backup software (Central Point Backup 2 for Windows) that I think is using some sort of timing loop in it's algorithms, rather than using the system timer.. anyway it's running in Windows 3.11 and on a old Pentium MMX 233MHz, which is just to fast as it was written for 286/386 CPU's.

Jeju Island in 3 Days

Jeju Island, the Hawaii of Korea, where couples usually go for honeymoon, and the place of many UNESCO Nature Heritage sites, is really beautiful and romantic. Some people say we need to spend at least 1 week to explore and experience the most of this island, but in my opinion 3 days are enough. Trust me, many places in Jeju only look good in advertisement, they're good at selling it. There are no interesting places in the North and West part of Jeju Island, so you can focus on East and South. East and South parts are amazingly naturally beautiful! Here's the itinerary I recommend.

Day-1: East of Jeju Island

Manjanggul / Manjang Cave
Spending time: 30-45 minutes
Hallasan, located in the middle of Jeju Island is the only volcanic mountain in Korea. It created several small volcanic mountains throughout Jeju Island, called Oreum in Korean. One of the biggest Oreum is Geomun Oreum, famous with its large lava tube system and designated as a UNESCO Natural Heritage site. It has few l…

Review: Homestay Cahaya Sikunir Dieng

Mencari penginapan di Dieng itu susah-susah gampang. Disana tidak ada hotel, adanya penginapan rumahan atau homestay. Beberapa turis kadang menginap di kota Wonosobo, sekitar sejam dari Dieng, demi mendapat penginapan yang bagus. Pilihan di travel apps hanya sedikit dan kurang cocok. Setelah browsing sana-sini, terutama baca review blog orang, saya hubungi beberapa homestay di Dieng baik lewat telpon maupun Whatsapp. Saat kami sudah mulai road trip Jawa Tengah tanggal 12 Desember, kami masih belum tau mau menginap dimana di Dieng tanggal 17 Desember nya. Karena waktu itu kami belum fix juga sih mau berapa malam di Dieng, 1 atau 2 malam? Kalau 2 malam, keduanya di homestay yang sama atau ganti homestay?

Akhirnya tanggal 16 Desember, sehari sebelum ke Dieng (saat itu kami di Solo), kami memutuskan untuk menginap 2 malam di Dieng. Malam pertama di Homestay Cahaya Sikunir, karena keesokan subuh nya mau sok-sokan melihat sunrise di Bukit Sikunir, dan malam kedua di Homestay Serayu. Untuk

Transportation in Jeju Island

These are some remarks regarding public transportation in Jeju.
Buses in Jeju Island accept Seoul's t-money card. You can buy and top-up it in convenience store, like GS25 and Family Mart.City buses normally charge 1000won for cash, or 950won for t-money card. If you pay by card, tap it to the machine when you aboard and when you alight. If you transit between 2 buses during a certain times, fee for the next bus can be 0won, or free.Intercity buses vary depends on the distance, usually between 1000-3000won. There's no different fee paying with cash or card. When you aboard the bus, tell the driver about your destination, he will tell you how much it is, and you have to pay there directly. If you pay by card, no need to tap it again when you get off.There are 2 bus terminals in Seogwipo city. The main bus terminal is in the south-east of downtown, near the Jeongbang Waterfall, which is also the old one. The second one is to the right of the E-mart in front of the World Cup Stad…
