    So, I was playing video games while posting on MacRumors today, and I wondered: Does anyone else multitask while posting here?

    So, what do you do while posting on MacRumors?

    I watch the forum spy in one tab and do other stuff with my other tabs, right now I am trying to get my G3 to boot from a panther disk but am having problems.

    Yup.

    Massive emails. IMs. PMs. Sometimes in addition to all that, phone and/or Skype. Eat. Drink. Listen to music. Ohhh. Sometimes other tasks, like if I got outta the shower not long ago, I'd likely be lotioning. Or geting dressed. I've even painted (like brush, pigment, and canvas) while between reading and posting on MR. :eek:

    I am mostly working. If I am engaged in low-mid level concentration work, I have the 'Spy' always open on one screen. I bounce back-and-forth.

    However, when designing, I do a high percentage of extreme programming...kind of designing and coding on-the-fly. I do not have a big enough brain to multi-task while doing that.

    Usually study copious amounts of legalese.

    Note: Not advisable...reading case after case, throwing in some statutes and Latin while attempting to read/contribute to Macrumors. Probably why my law school grades are the way they are :eek:

    P.S. For example, I have a Contracts II final tomorrow at 2 p.m., and what the hell am I doing right now? Exactly.

    I'm usually sitting in a La-Z-Boy swivel rocker with my cat sitting on my lap. The PowerBook is sitting on a side table to the right of me; which means I have to type with just my right hand. Right now she is out in the backyard playing with frogs; so I get to have the PowerBook on my lap and use both hands. :p

    Sometimes I'll have the TV on mute so the sound doesn't bother me; or if there's something good to watch, I'll have the sound on and then read MR during the commercials. :p

    Sometimes I'll have my headphones on listening to SKY.fm while I post at MacRumors. :p

    I am so dedicated to macrumors that I do not multitask when macrumoring, multitasking would be profound!
