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 till 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), upgrading the CPU to a AMD athlon x2 6000+ CPU.

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