Ten things you could do…

Maybe you know this: The startup process of a Windows PC is a lengthy affair. Here are ten suggestions for what to do with this dead time.

… while your computer starts up:

  • Have a cup of coffee.
  • Have another one.
  • Go outside to catch some fresh air because of Cardiac anxiety.
  • Curse Microsoft or pray for a faster computer.
  • Carve a nice/obscene (as you like) sketch into your desk.
  • Walk through the office and see if your boss has already arrived (or check which employees are not at their places yet, if you are the boss).
  • Watch the world outside your window and allow yourself a little daydream.
  • Figure out what to cook in the evening, which film to watch next weekend or what gadget/car/boat to buy when the economy gets better.
  • Think about a fancy status line for your Facebook page.
  • Think about what to do in the first place when the computer is up… if that’s not too swotty for you.
  • Post to your blog with the iPhone.
  • Picture what your would do today, if you were the dictator of your country, Captain Kirk, Jesus or Barack Obama.
  • Picture what you would do if you were young again.
  • Learn how to count to ten.
