View Full Version : What is the MAIN Use for your Computer?

Simple Question - as usual.

What do you FIRST and FOREMOST use your computer for?

I'll start - I use my PC for DOWNLOADING!

The irony - I only have NINE GigaBytes of space! ;D

Here's the story:

My family had another computer with at least 60GB; typical home computer.

It was infected because we didn't use any virus protection, it went screwy, and we were too stupid to reboot with a new OS. A few weeks later, my sister brings home her old Desktop - ick!

Its only 9GB of space. Its okay, it was during my school year for research; typical internet stuff.

My dad did me a favor and brought the PC he uses to monitor his downtown office, its got about 300 to 500 Gigabytes, maybe a terabyte - MASSIVE!!

I never got to use it because it just laid around and I was too lazy and took it for granted and was too stupid to ever hook it up and get it fired up.

A week later, my sister takes it to a PC wiz and to try to get it probed or something.

She's a relatively new driver and leaves the PC in the rear seat of her car - it gets STOLEN.

...And I'm stuck with her crappy 9GB desktop :grumbling :offended: :heated: :cry: +o( :uhwhat

I am on the computer a lot. We have an import/export business which requires me to use it to receive information via e-mail. I use excel, and some other business software. Mostly, my family uses it to instant message and voice chat with my husband (this explains the odd hours I'm online!). It would be hard to live without it!

I use my computer for downloading, reading mostly world news, learning new stuff, reading about science, play games, chat, forums (not just this), mysql database, hosting, network shared, encoding (which I do a lot for no reason). And that is it.

Actually, I run an Q6600 (Quad Core) 4 GByte RAM, an 8800GTX nVidia Graphic Card. Harddisk Space is 300GB and externally, I have 4 Netgear SC101 Units running with 4 TeraByte. I mostly use my PC for Gaming, of course High End Games (and that at the age of 40!).
But I also have a File-Server running in da house, an Win2003 Server Station, which mostly has Emule running 24/24h a day which we use for downloads.
Software no, but MP3's Yes !

Peace
