Every gamer I have met suffers from the same problems I do in real life. These problems range from excessive cabling to running out of disk space on your PC or console. Here is a short list of things that every gamer should practice in real life to get rid of the problems.
Cables, Cables and Cables
We, gamers, have a very awkward and common problem. Our play room or in other words ‘battlestation’ is normally plagued with hundreds of cables coming from different devices. One of the best things to do to get rid of this problem is to get rid of the unused cables and label the ones excessively used. If you are a gamer, chances are that your extension power plug is filled with several different plugs coming from your console, audio system, PC, router, modem and many other devices. The best way to sort out these cables is to bind them together with tape and label the ends of the cable with the device name.
Manage Hard Disk Space
Another problem that I have come across with many gamers including myself is that we do not manage our hard disks properly. The best way to keep your hard disks free from clutter is to get yourself a nice big external HDD and start storing unnecessary data on it. An external storage device is easily available and can be plugged to your PC or favorite system for backup. This way you can easily transfer those 720p movies that you have been keeping on your hard disk. Because video games typically take 7 or 8 gigs on your hard drive, it’s better to keep the ones you don’t play often on your external drive.
The Quickest Way To Get Cold Drinks
Gamers across the world drink a lot of energy drinks and soda while playing. The soda or energy drink offers much needed kick to your alertness when playing in a competitive environment. A simple technique to quickly turn your normal soda into a cube of ice is to store it in your freezer with a pot full of ice and covered. Adding two spoons of salt will turn your room temperature soda can into a can of ice within three minutes.
