Happy Friday! Something that we found interesting: Did you know you can mail live animals? Apparently you can.
As Windows has grown and its feature set getting bigger, it includes pretty much everything you need to get everything done.

You may have heard the news that the immensely popular CCleaner disk cleanup tool was hacked. Most IT guys (and many consumers) have used CCleaner to free up disk space (combined with the third-party CCEnhancer, it can clean up a lot of extra files that standard window Disk Cleanup won’t get). That being said, if you’re running CCleaner 5.3.3, you are potentially at risk and it is recommended you upgrade (older versions and newer versions are not affected – the 5.3.3 version was available on their site for a month).
