I talked last week about how I wanted to pick up World of Warcraft again. I can confirm that I did do just that this past weekend. There's just one small problem with me playing a game like that; my laptop isn't that great. I had to downgrade and buy a lower spec laptop over Christmas last year. My good laptop had a few knocks too many and now the USB ports aren't stable. The fan also isn't that good. For my work I sometimes end up using all three USB ports. So I had to get a new one and didn't have the budget for a good one.
The answer was that my old laptop would have to be used. Which means I now have one separate computer for work and one for playing games. I find I'm not good at this setup. I find myself having trouble swapping over and putting one laptop away and picking up another laptop. It helps that all the fun stuff, minus the games, is on the newer laptop. So if I want to do something other than browse the net, listen to music, or play Warcraft then I do have to load up the old one. What I generally just do is use the new laptop to do all my work and swap over when I'm done to play games. It's a system that hasn't gotten off to a great start but, hey, it's only been a few days.
As I work from home it's difficult for me to separate my home and work life. It's not like I can leave my work in the office. My home is my office. Sometimes I literally work from my bed even. Especially when I'm feeling sick.
The warmer weather is going to put a stop to that though. Man I need another desk fan. And the electrical outlets to run one.
I'm not really sure where I'm going with this post. I think I had an idea when I started. Oh well.
