Browsing Discreetly 4

Smiley SpyI moved my computer from the basement to our sunroom, making room for my wife’s quilting and craft projects. Now my computer monitor is facing an open area, such that I can’t, uh, compute discreetly. Researching entries to post on Steel White Table (Yeah, researching. Give me a break.) sometimes leads me to sites that could be considered porn, so I can’t research comfortably now knowing that someone can see what I’m doing.

So on that theme, here are some tips on how to browse the internet discreetly:

  • In Windows, learn how to press Alt-Esc or Alt-Tab quickly (assuming there’s another program running at the same time).
  • Use Boss! or a similar program that can hide open programs with a keystroke.
  • Claim you’re doing research for Steel White Table.
  • Or to hell with discretion and admit to yourself (and others) that you’re only doing what’s natural, and there’s no reason to be ashamed. Right.

    “Discrete” computing almost sounds legitimate (as opposed to “discreet”).
