Computers and all they are about take up a good deal of my time (and not just video games). That game WoW is the devil, I played it for 5 months, and if it was a job I'd be getting overtime every week! I finally quit entirely and haven't gone back, that will be the last MMO I'll ever play.
Anyway, if you want to find out more about how your computer works, google is a godsend. Just don't blame me if you get MCS or multiple computer syndrome
. I currently have two computers on my desk, my gaming pc
and my little laptop. The gaming computer I use for, well, gaming, and my laptop is used for everything else. You find out some really fascinating stuff, but then you get to be the IT department for friends and family, and that is a hassle sometimes.
