Even though you may have an 8-core or 12-core CPU, you may have noticed that the Windows 8 task manager just shows you one big graph. It’s very easy to get this back, but like many things in Windows 8 it’s not apparently obvious.

Happy holidays one and all! I would say that of all the writers here at OCModshop, I am the most Scrooge-like. I am not a fan of Christmas, really. I do like buying stuff for other people and getting presents, you would have to be mentally handicapped to not enjoy that. But the whole Santa [...]
