Interesting and humorous

If a man doesn't take serious things seriously, he's a fool.
If a man takes frivolous things seriously, he's a nerd.
But when a person combines these two qualities, he's a humorist!

The girl got tangled up in her purse and instead of a can of gas sprayed the maniac with Chanel. And screaming, "He's worth 3200! " almost killed the maniac.

But when these two qualities are combined in a person, he is a stupid nerd.

I suggest we re-title it as in 5 -- "interesting and humorous".

- moving the mouse over the screen while something is downloading, as if that would make it download faster

Oddly enough, it helped. I don't know the cause.

But while loading a movie via FF (I checked it several times, killed a lot of time) it turns out that moving the mouse while loading allows the data in the "Loading" window to be updated - and thus doesn't throw off the connection.

As soon as I stopped moving the mouse for at least a minute, the connection and download were reset.

You're a boring man, Shura. Such a song you've digitised.

In Excel, if I move the mouse over the window, the speed of automation increases by an order of magnitude.

There was a story about computer centres - if you press the button on the keyboard on the terminal, it increases the CPU resource,
for that user and it made the computing go faster.

Yeah, that's very interesting too - in light of the latest versions of Turbo Boost (and possibly Turbo Core).

I've noticed that when the download speed in FF starts to slowly but surely drop, then updating the forum helps raise the download speed.

crossed out, if programmers say it helps if you move the mouse - you can't argue with that, then it helps
