The top Computerworld community discussion forums this week:

1. What's the deal with Google Wave?

Essentially the technology allows you to store and share files and conversations in an easy to use interface. My business colleagues and I use it to brainstorm ideas and to draw up drafts etc because Wave allows multiple users to share and collaborate on single documents. It uses a rich media editor that can display images and videos as well as a range of gadgets and interactive applets. Any "wave" can be part conversation and part document and you get live transmission of any edits.

2. Speed up your printer

If you have some reference documents to print it's quicker to format two document pages to a single page, saves time and speeds everything up!

Click Print, and then Properties. Your next step might vary with your specific printer. For mine I click the Layout/Watermark tab and picked 2 pages per sheet.

Also, reducing you print quality can somewhat boost the performance of a printer.

3. Hard drive space

ccleaner (from filehippo.com_) and easycleaner (from personal.inet.fi/business/toniarts/ecleane.htm).

And a bi-annual format & reinstall to clear the crud.

4. Windows 7 compatibility mode problem with iTunes

Here is a fix I've found to work well -

1. Make sure iTunes isn't open.

2. Click Start, type regedit, then press Enter.

3. Navigate to this Registry location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers

4. Look in the main pane for a key that refers to iTunes. If you find one, delete it, then exit the Registry.

Then when you click into iTunes the message should be gone for good!

5. Running windows on a mac question

We use sun box. There's a little bit of latency but it works fine.
