Time was that I had one of those big tower-like personal computers, complete with an equally big monitor and an even bigger computer desk. Having a PC helped me do my personal work and connect with the world wide web, both in male and female mode. But it also meant having to stay inside the extra bedroom where the PC and desk were located.
But a few years ago, I won a laptop computer at a charity raffle. Oh, what sweet joy of doing work and going online while not being tethered by massive hardware. I mean, it’s hard to carry a whole PC and keyboard and monitor with you from spot to spot.
