After some time you get so used to it that you may as well have unlimited monitors. And you know this.
Do normal internet people really get dual screens just to save a few ALT+TABs? Honest question. If it's really like that, I'll just have to accept it, but it sounds stupid.

the IRC client gets an entire monitor to itself, and is always visible.

It's amazing how useful that is.

>> No.8879718

There are several reasons, one being watching chat programs while playing a full screen game. Another being watching a show while playing a game which isn't entirely exciting by itself.

>> No.8879722

I don't even have multiple monitors, for the record. But it is useful. Look at tiling window managers and all the hype about Windows 7's Aero Snap I think it was called.

It's nice to have one screen for your normal, everyday business and a supplementary screen for persistent things you might want to check. This goes waaay back to mainframes and so on, when people would have a dedicated terminal for log output or whatever. /jp/ers may not be doing serious work, but it must be nice to look over and see what people have said on IRC, for example.

>> No.8879733

Then why would you be playing it at all?
21st century at its best. Not that I ever do anything productive, but dual screens just for the sake of doubling your unproductiveness rate...

Because /jp/ers are so productive to begin with.

But this is ridiculous, it's like willingly multiplying your sloth. My single screen is more than enough to do nothing all day.
But well, to each his own.

i would use dual while using program like Sony vegas pro for one screen or other software like FL studio, audacity etc and use the one screen for drag and drop, instead of reducing the window everytime

>> No.8879784

Why listen to music while doing anything? Isn't music exciting enough by itself? I'm the kind of person who feels like sitting around watching a show is wasted time, and feels like playing minecraft just to build is wasted time. So If I put them together each being particularly mindless I'm actually paying attention pretty much the whole time. It may not make very much sense to you, but as someone who played MMOs for a good portion of his life, its worth it.

Most people listen to music as background noise. If I wanted to savour its taste or some idiomatic pretentious bullshite, I would go to a concert hall.

Right now my goal is to kill time in the most efficient and enjoyable way possible until I die. I ask nothing more, and if you disagree then perhaps you shouldn't be on /jp/ in the first place.

Read the last two words of the original post.

>> No.8879824

It's not that it doesn't make sense. I can agree on the point that both playing some game and watching a show are a waste of time. But even when I can pay attention to both things "at the same time", I don't think doing that is less of a time waste.
Say I'm watching a not-really-interesting show. That's enough for making me "enjoy" (yeah, right) wasting time. Grinding a character on a MMORPG at the same time would be the same time waste.
Oh well.

I'm not even sure what point you are trying to make anymore besides "My opinion is clearly the superior one and stands for all of /jp/"
I like to kill my time with escapism so games that leave me idly thinking are not welcome.


Everyone is different, I find it amusing. I get from your post though that you seem to find anything that is "wasted time" is not allowed. We would then have to find what you consider not wasted time, would that be something productive like programming or the like? What do you find fun? Etc.

Read my post again. I never said you shouldn't waste time. I even said that I do nothing all day. Not that I'm proud of that, but this is /jp/ after all.
My point is that I can sink all my time in one time sink at a time. I honestly can't understand using two time sinks at the same time. If anything, you're only making the theoretical limit of the media you consume approach faster (not that you can reach it in five lifetimes)
I see it like this:
One monitor with Shit Show X: Time wasted while my attention is not focused on my shit life = 100%
Two monitors with Shit Show X plus Shit Korean MMO X: Time wasted while my attention is not focused on my shit life = 100%
And on the second case you have to but another monitor and pay for the power it consumes.

>> No.8879973

I see the point you are making now and I understand your concern. However I particularly am not as concerned, one of these monitors was free and the power it consumes isn't terribly much. If I look at my backlog of things I am anticipating to play it is rather large taking more free time than I possibly have. It's not something I use all the time but when it is lost I do feel rather disabled with the amount of space I'm left with especially when I'm pretty busy with many windows open.

Going to disagree with this. Single player is fun if you're the kind of person who enjoys "playing with yourself" (lol masturbation). Think of games like Morrowind.
