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.
Simon, i found your blog from your comment on Memetank... specifically, the "If you don't like it, contribute, or shut up" comment. well said. i hated that Design by Fire article.
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...
I'm back in the office on Thursday - they aren't letting me off the heavy lifting. :-(
