Editorial This article describes some of my annoyances in computing. If you had any problems reading this article, then skip this one. It will only be a waste of your time. There are a lot of annoying things in the wonderful world of computing. Of course, nothing is perfect, but that doesn't mean we are not allowed to complain and scream and throw our keyboards at our monitors when yet another irritation pops up.

Re: Boot time (what to do with it)

Excellent points Jongo !
At first I was pretty annoyed by the fact that I had to wait for something to load. But afterwise I realized that this boot/load time was created for my own good! ;) Instead of sitting in front of this machine all day long, getting myself an RSI and eye-sight problems, the computer makes me take a break, move around, breath some air and do something completely unrelated. That is one of the best inventions in computing!

Thom: instead of getting on nerves because of boot times, follow Jongo's suggestions and "have some life" during it. That's your chance to make the arrangements you have to do anyway (or don't do/forget about them because of the computer). You know, the best thing that makes you remember you have to actually eat is outpower or disconnection from the internet on the ISP side ;)
