Water being carted into Walpole
- locals urged to reduce usage
Water carting, accessing local groundwater, a community-based water conservation program and advice from
a local gardening expert are four key strategies to secure Walpole’s town water supply this summer following
one of the driest winters on record.
The Corporation began carting water into the town last week and will progress with a bore, identified in a
recent exploratory drilling program, to be used as a supplementary source for the town.
Chris Elliott, the Corporation’s South West Regional
Business Manager, has appealed to all town residents
and businesses to redouble their efforts to conserve

Old toys on display at Library
A display of old toys, many from local settler families, has been set up in the Library by the Walpole
Nornalup and Districts Historical Society.
The display follows the joint meeting between the Society and the Seniors Social and Activity Club some
weeks ago at which people were invited to bring their old toys and talk about how they filled in their time as
children before the days of television, let alone Game Boy and Nintendo.
Since that meeting many more people have contacted the Society to say they have kept some of their old toys.
The Society plans to photograph them and keep the records in their growing files detailing how people lived
in the early days of the district.
This week the Society and the SASC are having a joint meeting on the role of horses in the settlers’ lives and
next month they will be discussing the use of guns.

Ten Ways To Stuff up Your Computer
(Continued from last week)
4. You like to be on the cutting edge, so you often install and try out new
software. Beta programs are usually free and give you a chance to sample
neat new features before most people.
There are also many freeware and shareware programs made available as
Internet downloads by their authors. We know you’d never do it, but some
users even install pirated software or “warez.” The more programs you
install, the more likely you are to run across ones that either include
malicious code or that are poorly written and cause your system to behave
improperly or crash.
The risk is greater with pirated programs. Even if
you install only licensed, final-release commercial
software, too many installations and uninstallations
can gunk up the registry. Not all uninstall routines
completely remove program remnants and at the
least, this practice can cause your system to slow
down over time.
You should install only the programs that you really
need, stick with legitimate software, and try to
minimize the number you install and uninstall.
5. One of the results of installing and uninstalling
lots of programs (or adding and deleting data of any
kind) is that it fragments your disk. Disk
fragmentation occurs because of the way information
is stored on the disk: On a new, clean disk, when you
save a file it’s stored in contiguous sections called
clusters. If you delete a file that takes up, for
example, five clusters, and then save a new file that
takes eight clusters, the first five clusters’ worth of
data will be saved in the empty space left by the
deletion and the remaining three will be saved in the
next empty spaces. That makes the file fragmented,
or divided. To access that file, then, the disk’s read
heads won’t find all the parts of the file together but
must go to different locations on the disk to retrieve
it all. That makes it slower to access. If the file is
part of a program, the program will run more slowly.
A badly fragmented disk will slow down to a crawl.
You can use the disk defragmenter built into
Windows (Programs | Accessories | System Tools) or
a third-party defrag program to rearrange these
pieces of files so that they’re placed contiguously on
the disk. Another common cause of performance
problems and application misbehavior is a disk that’s
too full. Many programs create temporary files and
need extra free space on the disk to operate. You can
use Windows XP’s Disk Cleanup Tool or a
third-party program to find and delete rarely used
files, or you can manually delete files to clear space
on your disk.
