Do You Love Your Computer?

Do You Love Your Computer Or Just Simply Work On It As Electronic?

For me I use a Dell Optiplex gx470 desktop and a latitude notebook they've both contributed a special way to my life. Now my notebook is faulty and I feel like poison not because of the cost of getting a new one, but for the past glory it has achieved in my life. If it refuses to work I'll definitely make it a vintage in my archives or do you?

Roses are red

Violets are blue

My PC's my friend

When i feel blue

Oh, how I love thee

the feel of your keys

the glare of your screen

the sound of your drives

they simply drive me wild

In times of despair

You bring me the net

In times of joy

you sing me a song

sometimes i think

how cruel it will be

living a life

without my PC

You just read my mind. I 'm happy b'cos it solves multiple problems for me.

I protect it b'cos i spent good dough to buy it.

Frankly speaking, most of the time, I leave the office without my lappy.

Your are my own personal person,simply cos your talking my mind.

PC has a special spirit. And there is is what we call PC-addiction.

In fact as for me once am working on my PC,i forget food.

And i can be on for 28hours non stop.

Thanks!

you have a major point there. . .theres a dead ibm in the house somewher and my old toshiba( which my wife now uses has reverted to guniea pig for all the cracks/keygens/patches/dodgy software downloads before deployment to my current machine.

i can't say i love my computer(there's alwayts a better model out there), but i definetely love using it. i am constantly searching for ways to improve/augument its performance, and the performance of applications i use.

i will always try something, just to see if it will enhance my computing experience.

a few trips down the lane

i have begun downloading albumart from albumart.org, so when music plays in winamp, the artist's image appears in the skin.imagine downloading two hundred jpgs, having to rename each to folder before putting into the artist folder. lupas rename to the rescue. using a two pane explorer replacement, i simply copy the jpgs to each folder, then rename all at once using lupas rename- which in my opinion is the best file and folder renamer tool out there. i was using SCR, migrated to Pfrank, but i couldn't get the performance i wanted- so i took a visit to nonags .com, (an ultra cool freeware site, and found lupas rename there)

i have this excel addin password.xla. what this does is it breaks the protections of protected worksheets in excel. in my old system, it worked with excel 2003, and with 2007. in my current system it refused to run in excel 2007 - something to do with the vba project( apparently irt was written in an excel 5.0 workbook) and excel 2007 has no backwards compatibilty. what did i do - i installed excel xp as a standalone app, alonside office 2007. then configured password.xla to run in excel.bad idea. it completely fked up my excel installation. i uninstalled excel xp. but excel 2007 was fked. all attempts to repair the installation failed.this was actually the last straw that made me get rid of vista.

now 2 months later, i suddenly decide to try again. i figure that i can maybe decompile password.xla, and save it as a macro. unfortunatley, its protected, but what do you know- i find a diff app.vba decompiler, which decompiles and recompiles excel addins to formats compliant with the existing version. i used the app and voila! my password.xla is running on excel 2007

yesterday, i downloaded several ruby scripts to use as sketchup plugins. if u use sketchup, you will find that some plugins really improve your work.of course, the trouble with plugins(just like lsps ) in autocad is that it is best you install them one by one, to ensure none will cause problems. with 50 + plugins - beans? so i install all at once ( not complicated in sketchup, just copy them to your plugins folder) i start up sketchup and there are multiple error messages. so i have to start going through them one by one, filtering the plugins. very tedious, but eventually, thery're all fixed) and i got a lot more .i now have a context menu - among other things.

sometimes, tweaks or apps can slow down my system.

everyonce in a while, i get hold of an app that i prefer to start vwith windows. some apps will not do that.eg process explorer, which i use as a taskmanager replacement. one day, i discovered the startup folder in th programs menu. i put a shoortcut to process explore there and voila! process explorer starts with windows. but what do you know, it always starts in a normal window. i'd prefer if it starts invisibly.then one day just recently , i was fooling with a shortcut - there are so many things you can do with shortcuts eg change their icons - when i saw the field run minimized, run maximized, run in normal window.the shortcut was set to run in normal window. i changed this tto run minimized, and voila(again) process explorer now starts with mindows invisibly. the list of tweaks can go on and on. . .

just a minute a go i installed an autocad addin drawing cleanup utility. it refused to run- i couldn't fu=igure out why - then i realized - it's altered some system variables, and thus i need to restart windows to run it. i did that and presto new tool to (hopefully) improve my work

its funny, there's alm ost nothing that u can't get from the net. if you suddenly decide that your system tray is too crowded, for instance, you can just googlr tweak stystem tray, and find an app that can hide objects in the tray.

my 'computer' is constantly changing

this is my current config

2.0ghz core 2 duo

2gb ram( ni actually wanted to upgrade to 3gb - i'd assumed the laptop came with 4 dimm slots buts its just two and 2gb ram doesn't appear to be locally available

hard drive

160gb - internal

80gb external (portable) - for all the installers files of my software(games, applications, utilities, desktop bling bling, multimedia applications

120gb external (portable) - for all my media - music, videos, professional literature, islamic media

320 gb external (desktop) - as a backup( that stays at home) all my files and legacy versions of my software ( eg autocad 2006, 2007,inventor 10, 11 ) are backed up to this .

256mb video card (njvidia quadro)

these days i somtiems wish i had bought the laptop with a 4ogb drive,512mb ram, with the processor and videocard maxed out(512mb 3500 card, 2.4ghz processor) i could have bought a sata hard drive and 2gb of ram at a cheaper price and installed those myseld .oh well - buyer's remorse

No, I don't love my computer. It's merely a tool, a means to an end.

If it went bust, I'll either get it fixed, or if not repairable, stick it in the garbage, and get a new one.

I dey surprised say ur Zinox never spoil, they have a bad track record.

Sha, as for me, I'm manging with my own Omatek laptop, I don't believe it will survive the year, but hopefully I will either buy an Alienware or steal one (whicheva comes first). I love computers especially other people's own (because mine is not all that great but it tries). At least, it's nice to know that NIgeria has computer companies like Zinox and Omatek.

The first time i thought of this to myself, i thot that i was existing in another realm with different kind of life different frm others, thank God i have thousands sorry millions of Nigerians that think like me,

My addiction to my laptop is beyond what mouth can express. It has gotten to an extent that i don`t sleep again and find it difficult to eat.

Once am glued to my laptop, i think of nothing else,

One girl i was going out with in the past left me and dis was one of the reasons she gave for leaving me.

Didn't know there many people like me. Love mine so much. Very faithfull and obedient. Been loyal for two years. Her name's "OLA". I have a power on password for my laptop. Today I think one key didn't function so the password didn't work. I almost went bezerk. When she makes me enough to buy a car I am definitely going to retire her.

I've had my Toshiba lappy for over a year now through which time we've gone through a lot of customization to fit my standards (it's now very different from it's default setting, not so radically different though). i now honestly can't enjoy using another computer for long hours if it ain't mine; it's like the center around which my life is built. i shudder to think of what would happen if the relationship was to be compromised.

Do u hahaha, take this computer

In sickness and in health,

Whenever someone is on my system, i get this kinda someone ain't being sincere with me feeling.

When anybody makes any changes whatsoever to my system settings, they definately looking to get their heiny whipped.

Doing stuff with other PC's just dont feel the same like when u do it with a PC u love.

I adore my PC.

Am loving it like hell, without my computer, i wonder where i would have been today!
