It’s amazing what you can do with a D-Ring Binder. Back in those days when I was a call center
lackey agent and we had materials from the learning-slash-training program, I would bring home three big D-Ring Binders, and these had been used as… A laptop stand for my Sayuri.
Those days, I had had a roommate, and while she slept, I would try to work. Since I had taken the pullout, nearest the floor, and my room was cramped, I had to find ways to be able to work on my articles comfortably without a table.
I discovered one nifty tool: the D-Ring Binder!
The D-Ring Binder enabled me to have something that felt much like a table, but was inclined. Since the D-Ring Binder had very thick contents, I had been able to use it as a relatively stable laptop stand or mini-table. I was able to work on the D-Ring Binder with more ease than with my laptop flat on my table, actually. In fact, I thought it was so cool that I didn’t have to spend anything for those cooling “snap-balls” that people buy for their Macs. 🙂
The only downside to the D-Ring Binder is that since it is made of plastic, and even has a plastic covering over it, its surface, and the Mac’s bottom, would both heat up rapidly, and this was the cause that I quit using the D-Ring Binder, apart from the fear that the pressure and the weight of the Mac would split its spine.
But for what it’s worth, the experience showed me that one does not need to spend a cent to enhance one’s personal computing experience. One only needs a creative mind, resourcefulness, and a really geeky brain, to figure things out and use things like the D-Ring Binder, to one’s own advantage. 😉
