When you eat the same thing for breakfast, every day.

I do that all the time.... every single time I go.... Too distracted from the actual movie.


I move around about 4-5 times before the movie starts to make sure I'm in the "right" place.

Omg...I never knew anyone else did this.


For those who miss the little blocks on the most recent versions of Windows, I recommend Auslogics BoostSpeed


Little blocks! They may have led me to my present career. This is unreal.

So good to know that someone has still implemented the little blocks in a defrag program! I never understood what Microsoft's rationale for removing them was. I was like, how will future generations understand the pleasures of watching a hard drive defragment and come to understand how a drive works??

Haha! I know that one! It is so beautiful.
Defragmentation is not what it used to be. I miss the little blocks.

When reading all the posts about the little blocks you get nostalgic.

Actually, thats rather universal to the human race. Eating the same thing for breakfast everyday (atleast on workdays).

...and one study showed that people who eat oatmeal everyday live longer. :) lol I'm not sure how good the research is , I just read it cited in a newspaper article about how to live to be 100. I also eat the same things everyday.

I've done that before with Win98 and could sit there watching it for hours it was so fun! In the end I was like "will the structure ever be finished?"... Anyways, I'm not the only one who has done that then.


WinXP's defrag window doesn't have the blocks anymore. :( (Or is there another view option apart from the default?) I used to like to watch them too...

I miss that, I used to spend hours watching them.

This is not only so me, it is EXACTLY the thought process and dialogue in my head.

The real killer is, middle seats do not usually afford the luxury of at least one empty seat either side of me.

The torment of indecision as I weigh confinement against the perfect vantage point and vice versa :pale:

You know you're autistic when...

You recognize friends/family/neighbors better by their phone numbers then their faces/voices.

....when hearing the words ''nuclear'' and ''war'' in the same sentence makes you throw yourself on to the floor, screaming in a panic
