distractions

A fairly simple example of what is often a much busier workspace:

- Google Chrome window 1 tabs:  phpMyAdmin for database management, PHP Functions page, lj_nanowrimo profile, YouTube video (posted to LJ earlier), 1918 article on education
- Google Chrome window 2 tabs:  LiveJournal friends page, NYT article on old hoodoo findings in Annapolis, Gmail inbox, Wikipedia article on Orisha
- Notepad windows:  D&D character in progress, list of applicable D&D 4E feats and rituals (PHP-related windows closed earlier)
- Tabbed Pidgin instant messages window
- Portable Abiword for 2008 NaNoWriMo novel (712 words of crap so far)
- Semagic LiveJournal client
- PortableApps main menu (on taskbar)

There were many more browser tabs, including things in Internet Explorer, as well as many more Notepad windows and other things before I closed a bunch of stuff.  A multitasker I am, yes.

Ooh!  And now I'm opening Winamp because the Current Music box made me realize it wasn't playing something already.

Here's what mine is like:

- Pidgin main window and chat window(s)
- Sidebar with album art, indexer status, clock, calendar, weather, and SysTran translation plugin (Japanese to English, natch)
- Outlook
- One or more instances of Word
- Windows Live Writer
- PortableApps launcher
- AllChars
- Windows Media Player (now playing: Lustmørd, "Paradise Disowned")
- Process Explorer, just in case something goes all Pete Tong on me.

Um... Okay. First off, my PC: Windows Media Player (currently playing various Apocalyptica songs), Firefox, Yahoo (how many tabs I have there depends on what catches my eye on the newsgroups), as many instances of OpenOffice as I need as the muses determine, AIM (when I remember to turn it on), MSN Live (ditto), IMC (generally only two tabs), AllChars, DriverMax, Paint.NET, DAZ|Studio, various other computer-related sites as research needs. Second, my desk: My birthday external HD, telephone, cell phone, speakers, cup filled with pens, pencils, cuticle trimmer, glucometer, mini-stapler, Vivitar mini-digital keychain camera (does alright if it's not too bright or dark and you don't shake), APC SurgeArrest (I gotta break down and get a new battery for my backup UPS), signed copy of Four Day weekend (which I still haven't read), ruler, 2 plastic tapestry needles for weaving in the ends of my knitting/crocheting, binoculars (cheap POS but it gets me a semi-decent view of Lake Erie), 3-hole punch, Nalgene bottle of water, hot tea in the AM or when it's cold in the PM.
