Always on software

13 Jun 2006

There are three software that are always open for me at work:

  1. Konsole - for coding
  2. Firefox - for email, internal websites, news, etc.
  3. Gaim - for talking to colleagues

It's interesting that I don't use anything else at all.

Hmm, I can't get anything done if I'm not connected to the network. I'm useless by myself. Has the age of the drones cometh?

You are a victim to the "Network Effect".

I don't have internet @ home, it sort of inhibits my coding when I can't look up docs on the net.

The only additional thing that i run is "xmms"

Atul Chitnis says:

Heh - The Network is the Computer. Sound familiar? ;)

Premshree Pillai says:

What, no mail client?

Premshree Pillai says:

Oh, nevermind. I see that you use FF for mail.

Swaroop says:

@Sudhir : I don't need XMMS for entertainment. I have my colleagues ;-)

@Gopal, @Atul : Yeah, I'm making a conscious attempt to try to do things offline these days, but it's hard to resist the network's temptation.

@Premshree : Heh.
