Software workflow

It usually is doing one thing at a time, without background interference (chat apps) closed, notifications off and minimal interruption for focussing on what i am doing. Sometimes it helps me to have some music playing in the background.

I use one screen, and i find virtual workspaces a bit of a hassle (might change that with a custom mapped keypad sometime).

I do things rather a bit slower and checking for errors than hurry and stressing out on with additional work later on.

PC history

My history with PC's stuff started since 1999 when my dad got a Pentium 2 350 based PC. using it for work administration and allowing me to play games on it when he wasn't working on it.

I stayed on that Pentium 2 flash-based Youtube videos became unplayable (even with a the processor running at 450MHZ by a fsb overclock overclock) in 2007.

I then got myself a (for the time) nice gaming PC (AMD athlon x2 5600+ with ATI X1650 256MB graphics paired with 2GB RAM), and upgrading the CPU to a AMD athlon x2 6000+ CPU later on.

In 2011 i built my second own PC (AMD Phenom 2 x6 1055T with AMD HD 5770 graphics, and 4GB RAM), but in Micro-ATX form, and fell in love with how it turned out.

In 2019 it was time to move on for my workloads, and so i got my AMD ryzen 2600 with RX 570 GPU, where i searched for the best performance for the money.

As of mid 2021 i see i need some more compute grunt for social VR games with 25 people or more. So i will likely upgrade my 2019 rig with twice the system RAM, a Zen 3 processor and RDNA 2 graphics card once prices are low enough.
