Itâ€™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 didnâ€™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 Macâ€™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 itâ€™s worth, the experience showed me that one does not need to spend a cent to enhance oneâ€™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 oneâ€™s own advantage. 😉
