Do you eat while on the computer?
I know many of you drink tea/coffee
But do you eat a snack?
I'm having chips and dip
I try not to eat when I am on my computer. I don't like getting crumbs in the key boards. I am kind of a messy eater.
yes but I keep the food from the keyboard - do not want to drop something in there
Only when I know I won't get caught by my partner
Strangely, no. The TV, however, is an entirely different matter...
I totally agree, I don't remember the last time I ate without the TV
I eat and drink around mine. I always use the laptop though so I just push it to the side and eat around it, normally still sits on my lap though.
Right now I have a chocolate bar and a cuppa tea sitting next to me. I don't bother moving away just for a snack but if I'm eating a meal then I'll close the lid and put it down.
I have two computers. My PC is a 'family' computer and has had crumbs spilled into it from people sitting and munching. I recently invested in a mac and it is ALL MINE! and I do not eat at that computer, not even a snack.
Woah! If I had a Mac I wouldn't let any food within at least a 3 meter radius of it... Or I'd put signs everywhere "NO EATING AROUND THE MAC!"
That 's funny! As soon as I brought it home my nephew rubbed his hands together and said something like, "oh boy, now I can use your new computer." (I happen to be raising him and he is the main reason why I got a different computer). I said, "oh H...., no!" It's him that I put the 3 meter radius around, hahaha.
I love my Mac and it was truly an investment. I had to get it financed, but it is worth every penny-and it is paid off. That makes it even sweeter.
I've always wanted a mac, but the only real reason is how pretty it looks. I don't know if I would use it for much else than just looking at. Plus I couldn't afford one.
I just figured out a new trick. I got back from the gym, I put my feet up on my desk, and I have a seperate keyboard and mouse for my laptop (I hate typing on laptops...so I'm sitting here w/ my feet up on the desk, the laptop so I can see the screen on the desk, the keyboard -in my lap! and the mouse on top my trash can on my right.
It 's comfy but temporary.
thanks Maybe I'll make it more permanent like put a pillow on my lap under the keyboard
I have a pillow on my lap right now, the laptop gets to hot and burns my leg
Mine too! In winter it's kinda nice (saves on heating) but sometimes I'll be sitting there going "Wow. Where is all this heat coming from? I look down and see my laptop burning my thigh. Or you know what's even hotter? The adapter "box" that links the plug from the computer to the plug in the outlet.
better, but I bet you can't type, get a little bit hard pillow! I might do that too..
I don't mind the keyboards to much but I hate the mouse pad on laptops, I always have a separate mouse and I can't stand it when it's not there. I like it because if i'm just scrolling through pages I can just put the laptop on the table and use my armrest for my mouse.
Today I had coffee and a mocchachino cake while working on the laptop. The cake was disappointing.
I've trashed my laptop keyboard with coffee spill twice in the past couple of years, however I have a warranty for next day on-site repair, so I am not bothered at all about this.
I also trod on the screen of my previous laptop, but again it was covered by the same type of warranty.
What frustrates me, as I probably spend around 14-16 hours a day in front of my lap top and obviously have to eat, is that eating with a knife and fork is impossible whilst typing at the same time. There are times when I honestly wish someone would spoon feed me while I work. However, I have now overcome the spilling coffee problem, I have a spill resistant keyboard. After typing this it has suddenly dawned on me that I need to take the odd break now and then!
I feel for you!
I would suggest maybe making protein shakes in the blender?
I find this a quick way to have breakfast or lunch and not messy. It just occurred to me today because I was in a hurry and I didn't have time to eat. Just a thought!!

I am in the process of cleaning up my computer after my son donwloaded - by accident - another unremovable anti spyware program. I was wondering how many others here have had this type of thing happen to their computers by children/spouses/friends etc? I'm bored waiting for all the scans to run.......

Are you sitting up straight right now while at your computer?So many people slouch and then wonder why their back, neck and shoulders ache! I think just reading the words will make you aware of how your sitting.
