3 Big data security analytics techniques

There's an awful lot of rubbish spouted about keeping one's peripherals clean. At The Register, we take a rather more relaxed view of hardware care. If it breaks, we simply ask the supplier to send a replacement PDQ (pretty damn quick), or else. However, our "who cares attitude" has revealed some surprising results. Dirty keyboards? Stick it in the bath and scrub it with a nailbrush. Leave to dry and reconnect. Result? As new performance and no dandruff. Monitor and system unit looking tired? Remove casing and place in dishwasher. Result? Shiny new machine, 100% operational. So forget those expensive hardware upgrades, simply wash and go with the stuff you already have. The Register welcomes reader's hints and tips about keeping things shiny and happy. You know where we live. ®
