Nerd Attention Deficiency Disorder - this is just so me. Not just the 14 browser-tabs and 10 windows bit, but also the bit about hating people mucking about with your desktop.

I also like to run my desktop at a very high resolution with very small fonts. Is this another NADD symptom, or is it my own personal quirk?

I have just had to boot into Windows to do some stuff that I can't get working in Linux.
As I almost never use Windows it's a bare-bones install.
Now I am completely lost without my ICQ, MSN, email, tabbed browsing and myriad of terminals.
I actually find the lack of stuff going on distracting in itself. How strange is that?

You don't have nerd attention deficiency disorder: you pay a great deal of attention to being a nerd.

Hmm... Jacada, Outlook, Hotmail, VNC to PC60 (2 windows there), VNC to CMGL (4 windows there), VNC to Knuckles (2 windows there), Ebay, PFE on 4 INI files, Explorer, Mudcat Cafe, EVO1 on PC60, EVO1 on CMGL, and now SVC too... I think I see what you mean!

Oh, yes... If you're not keen on people messing with your desktop (me too. Or maltreating my monitor-guarding fluffies.), how about with your actual PC? Or your desk? Not that there's any chnace of anyting happening to them, you understand... just that we are moving rooms tomorrow & Thursday...
