What can you tell us about your upcoming Moogfest performance? We use the same principles for songwriting that we use for playing live.

1. Lock down your security settings.

Go to the security and/or network settings in Windows or Mac OS X. Switch on the firewall, and switch off sharing for your files, printer, music library, and anything else you don't feel like giving your neighbors.
