My desktop is being worked on at the moment. My raid went down with one of the drives going bad. My husband was home today and took my work day to work on it. Sadly, things are not going to be done until the morning so I'm on my laptop. My laptop that I purchased to play Eve.
I've always had a laptop and a desktop. My laptop's before were light weight things that I used for writing. It was not until I started to play Eve that I invested in a heavier laptop that could easily play the game in the way that I wanted to play it.
The same goes for my desktop. I have had two monitors for several years. It was not until I started playing Eve that I wished for three. My two before were connected to different machines but once I started playing Eve I wanted everything to flow together. Now I have three screens that I play across and I don't stretch my screen.
I also play more games then I did before Eve. I've tried games because of friends in Eve. I've purchased games for people and had games gifted to me. I've started projects with other people in other places and all of it boiled back to this game.
I have also developed habits that make my laptop a bit constricting to play the game I got it to play on. That often amuses me the most. It is still a lovely machine if several years old and does what I want it to do quite well. I do wish it were not quite so heavy for my travels. A small enough complaint as they go.
Ahh well, my desktop will finish in the morning. I might as well slip off to bed.
