I love the idea of sitting in a deckchair with telescope and
watching planes through a telescope and being idle

lol. do you have an Earth child name? like dances with the
wind?

btw imagine if each browser tab had its own tabs verticel
drop down and 4d!where you use a magic wand...in a 3d space
to select them and move them around 4 d space (xyz and t) t
cause we can animate the tabes too.

like you can draw a path and give the tab a speed to travel
along it. it needs to move cause you want to see it go from
point A to B...as a time reference end of auction ebay or
live broadcast start time or what not

other tabs that morph from shape to shape over time or just
bouncing blobs for fun.

tabs that look like cats that are projected on your wall and
walk around. and all you do is make that terrible
"SSSSSSSTTHHHhhhh" sound people make to scare a cat and you
open your lovely tab , these are call tabbies.

tabs that are actually real objects. like corn flakes
dangling off strings above your monitor ..each cornflake you
eat opens new windows into teh intranets.

cornflake tabs i can definitely see that, cornflakes become
indestructible if you leave them to go stale for long enough

I post here usually from the comfort of my couch using my
iPad. Only five tabs open for the moment.

Are you sure it's not your friend's browser?

I never was into getting an iPad when it came out. Got one
last year when I'm had a fuckload of vouchers for this place
that sells electronics. After about two weeks I realized I
was hooked. It's so nice to be able to browse the net and
watch vids on your bed, balcony or couch. On the floor,
sitting on the carpet.

I'm also addicted to this Star Wars game I have on it. Free
game, nothing spesh, but I play it every fucking day for at
least five minutes. Ridiculous.

raises hand: guilty of tab overload,
i keep telling me its getting better though (7atm)

i wont ever be able to use something else than a pc, full
keys and a mouse for browsing...
i get angry and impatient easily if i have to cope without a
keypad or mouse on a lappie, which i use at my gfs cause she
cant salvage any space for a desktop.

dont get me started on any tablet/mobile thingies, however
mobile they are. i only use em for e-bay or train schedules
out of my home. when i want to sit and cop out into a show
or movie world i dont want any distractions from messages
and groups and dont want to surf the net either.
well some gf messages are excluded of course, they can be
real sweet .-)

how do you get an earth child name?!
i want one dearly ^^

yes you can beat a full responsive keyboard, because i no
longer use a mobile phone of any sort i think that i cant
deal with the tiny fiddle virtual keys of a pad, far too
sensitive and frustrating, i suppose they are lighter than a
laptop, but then again laptops are that small nowadays its
no difference.

desktop pc with a comfy chair and a nice monitor and
keyboard are the optimum set up for me, just cant be beat,
also sometimes you get to feel like a ensign on the star
ship enterprise

Anymore than 6 for me is fucking silly. Unless you're my
son, whose entire browsing history seems to be spread across
separate tabs - like he's never got round to closing one
ever. It's got to that stage where it's awkward to mention
it.

ive got 20 open at the moment which is average for me i
suppose, most of them are stuff i really find interesting
but will come back to read/watch/listen to later, i know
about bookmarks but before browser tabs were a bit thing i
have about 300 bookmarks and they werent organised so i
could never find anything, i will be more organised when i
get the new pc up and running, it saves time in the long run

you can hit 10 or 20 easily while troubleshooting or getting
into stuff you know jack about. it gives you an overview of
what info is offered. sometimes i need to read back and
forth different sources to get a hold of the solution. if i
have a forum, e-mail etc open at the same time or check
e-bay i hit 20. not that im particularly fond of it, but i
get what i need. in the end i close everything related and
im sure i know all that is needed. if things get out of hand
i close everything but the topic/problem im on about right
now.

"sometimes you get to feel like a ensign on the star

that is a neat feeling. since i ordered some acryl glass i
cant help but imagine building star trek props. some simple
console stuff with hand cut colored vinyls or pieces of
cardboard that slide behind a backlit acryl surface. maybe
with a tiny emebdded screen. it would be completely useless
and look totally out of place so i skip the thoughts.

also i wondered a lot about how the star trek controls work,
they look absolutely cryptic to me. just colored buttons in
all kind of shapes without any labeling or text. it is
beyond me how that could be nice to work with. however i do
like the looks ^^

opening search results in the same tab indicates a learning

yes my watching my gfs parents use a computer is a excise in
frustration, like if im helping them with something and i
need them to access their email they might put their
username and password in and not click on sign in and im
waiting for them to so it for like 20 seconds out of
politeness before i go "click on sign in" how the hell they
order stuff from amazon or what not when im not there i
havent a clue

absolutely lovely,
they have far more inscriptions than i remembered.
when they plot a course or set phasers to modulating
frequencies and such stuff i still wonder how they do that
with so few buttons.
anyhow i wonder more if i will ever prefer a touchscreen
over a button to push in. i guess i will as soon as the damn
touchies work flawlessly. and while were at it why dont we
have a computer that responds to voice commands yet...seems
way overdue.
id miss the satisfaction of fully pressing a button.

parents and pc´s is worth a seperate forum on its own..

yes i imagine that its sort of a contextual menu that you
press a combination and the science station changes to
whatever process your trying to work with at the time, one
thing is for sure starfleet OS must be more reliable than
windows

yes set resolution to 800 by 600, get the stephen hawkings
voice to read web content, change colour depth to 16 bit,
swap your swanky office chair for a stool or deck chair,
cover desk in crumbs of cheese and pringles,
