What to do when bored

wWe all get bored while using our (or neighbour's) PC. Several hours may go in TDF without a post, no new games may be available or the weather may just not be good to complete the college project (just an excuse :p). So guys, suggest everyone what they can do with their pc when they have nothing to do! Let the incredible machine be put to some use. Post what you, your friend or your pet dog/cat do with a PC when utterly bored! :D :D

Re: What to do in PC when bored

if you have some money, bring some new stuff (new proccy, gpu, cabinet etc.) and either upgrade your rig or assemble a new one, it'd be fun and a good timepass.. :p
or watch porno... :p


Re: What to do in PC when bored

That's a tiring job; if you know what I mean :wink:.


btw, you asked for something to do when bored, not when tired... :p

Run the Defragment deeply, and stare at those tiny blinking boxes.

I switch on the PC, only when i get bored. So, can't answer your question. :mrgreen:

Play games, Watch movies, Download things. . .
So, your question should be "What do you do, after that?". Isn't it?

I switch off, and sleep.

When you have nothing to do with P.C Turn off that P.C.
Get out from Home.
Hangout with buddies.
See the world.


Re: What to do in PC when bored

Try out some cool and nice(good) stuff (generally backtrack) on the PC's in my network. Monitor what they're up to.
Stats. point out that most of th'm either use the BroadBand for FBooking or Online shopping. Some even tend to use Dating sites. :evileyes: [maybe because there's a Girls PG nearby.]

O/W I watch cat and dogs videos on Youtube.
