What do you use your PC for?

Recommended Posts

Hey, its getting bit dull over here so I wondered if you guys could tell me what exactly do you use your PC for? What are your essential software(s)?

 

I am a student in the 12th grade, so its mainly for research, multimedia, not-too-intensive gaming.

 

iTunes (now Foobar2000)

Firefox (lol)

VLC

Picasa, Photoshop

Office 2010, Wordweb

Internet Download Manager!

Mostly for multimedia, well probably 99% of the time:

* Music

* Movies

 

The software that makes it possible:

* Audacity Portable (audio editing)

* CDex (CD ripping)

* Foobar2000 (music playback)

* MPUI with MPlayer (playing videos/movies)

* VLC Media Player Portable (playing videos/movies)

* XP Codec Pack (playing videos/movies)

Hah, I use uTorrent too, it gets a bit illegal sometimes :rolleyes:

 

I have a laptop and it gets so damn hot while playing GUI intensive games that it shuts down. :(

I just sit here all day trying to bag a spammer, but hazel gets up too early for me and cleans the place out.

 

Maybe Nergal and Augeas get a few as well now, and when I take time off to sleep, Andavari comes in and nukes the ones I missed sleeping.

 

I'll never get my Piriform Laptop at this rate. :(

 

If I wasn't so dedicated then it would music, movies, photography, watching on line TV which I can't get on my TV, and searching the web for some wicked download links to stick under logins nose. He can't refuse them.

 

 

Foobar2000: (Music)

 

MPlayer with MPUI: (Watching video/movies)

 

DVDFab HD DeCrypter: (Ripping DVD's. My own of course for backup)

 

ImgBurn: (Burning DVD's, ISO's, and back-up data disks.)

 

Mp3tag: (Simply the best MP3 metadata tagger out there)

 

PhotoFiltre Studio: (Doing stuff with photographs)

 

Picasa 3: (Photo Organiser with some cool features)

 

Burrrn: (The only program I would use for burning CD's)

 

AudioGrabber: (Ripping CD's with "Lame" Encoder. An oldie, but still rocks for me)

 

 

This is the stuff I would be using if I had the time.

 

Back on watch. :(

If only I had the time. :)

After reading your post Dennis I have decided to stop paying all those people to post spam so that I get to the top of the 'Spam Remover' leader board.

 

Of course the pull of the Gold Plated laptop from Piriform for the winner made me do it. I'm sorry :(

 

So I will turn over a new leaf and go back to using my laptop for other things :)

 

Mainly I am search based, I love finding info online.

 

I also use my pc for software testing, using Ashampoo for my linux iso burning **waves to Login123**

 

Decrypter etc. (for legal purposes of course).

 

Catching up on iplayer if I miss a TV program

 

Not too into all the music software, just tend to use Windows Media Player.
