  1. Gaming, photo editing, programing, and more gaming. Followed by some web browsing and movie watching.

    Enjoy:

  3. Got my E6600 at 3.0GHz so that I could... um... surf faster, send e-mails faster and get snappier response when I used the calculator that's included with Win XP. Yeah, that's it...

    I don't even think about him and he stalks me. He obviously hs a problem. I hadn't even posted anything since this morning.


    But on topic, I use my PC for C# programming, some gaming and more programming.
  15. Mainly Programming VB/Java/Matlab/plsql/C++
    CAD (Solidworks)
    Word / Excel / Powerpoint
    Internet / E-mail / Bittorrent / SSH
    Music in the background masking my case fan noise

  16. gaming, schoolwork, checking my daily computer sites, downloading/ watching/ enjoying porn on my trusty 6 year old crt, bitcheez

    Isn't that implied by "web surfing"?
  18. ...surfing, CAD, 3D, photoediting, some programming...
    P.S:little gaming ONLY with Jane's WW2 fighters and Red Baron :wink:
  19. I always thought web surfing was a subset of a larger task, porn browsing.
  20. Ah. I see I had the order reversed. :oops:
  21. A noobish mistake if there ever was one to make.
  22. Yeah, I guess I'm a noob. *sigh*. :cry:
  23. Ah, it feels good to hear you acknowledge your place in the universe.
  24. When did you get so mean anyway, Ninja?
  25. Comes with the avatar. I was just joking though.
  26. So was I. I guess our humor was so dry even we started to doubt that we were joking! :o
  27. Surfing, watching anime, reading manga, playing games that my GeForce 6100 can handle...

    And, no, I don't watch p0rn.

    @ Ninja: How many people bitched about your avatar before you changed it back?

    I think I counted around six or seven while the whole thing was going on.
  29. Porn, porn, web, porn, and more porn. Oh, did I say porn?
  30. I'm having trouble figuring out what you use your PC for. I think your description was a bit ambiguous. Can you clarify that??? :wink:
  31. i use mine for gaming, emails, paying bills.

    oh yeah and talking to all you squirrelmonkeys here at thg :lol:

    and trying to hack ninjas computer to lock his avatar :lol:

    but i cant seem to download his gpu,s.
  32. 1. Running Virtual PC with 4 2K3 servers and 4 clients (currently 2XP and 2Vista) to keep up on my 2K3 admin skills and script testing.

    2. VBScripting

    3. Games: LOTR Online: SoA Beta, WoW, and whatever suits my fancy.

    4. Ripping DVD's to ISO for playback using VLC anywhere in my house. (Also converting to PSP format for watching on my commutes)

    5. CD ripping.

    6. Some light GIMP work.

    7. Surfing.

    I do all of that, with the exception of the Virtual PC stuff, pretty much concurrently in different combinations obviously. When I get the VPC stuff going it pretty much kills doing much of anything else outside of that, tho I usually keep Primalscript up.
  33. Stairing at the google home page, while my brain is getting fried 8)

  35. Some gaming, some medical research, some counseling, and some going on this sight to see what's happening to offer advice, opinions, general bull and a few other assorted things. Even e-mail a girlfriend from time to time.

    I really don't need the fastest cpu around, but I do need a good graphics card. Except for eventually building a new machine for Vista, I probably would keep my present machine for at least another year or two.

    Oh, now you want to get specific.

    Gotta be careful when e-mailing. Never use names, just in case I type in a wrong one. Did that once. Connie did not like being called Julie. Don't know why she was so upset. She never did talk to me again.

    Problem is, when an avatar changes, its hard to guess who it is. Then I gotta read the name.

    Then again, perhaps a good warning, cause I was hoping to get a picture of me and a girl on my boat in Tahiti for an avatar.
