Item description for Computer Waiting Games by Timothy Crawford...
According to efficiency experts, the average computer user spends nine minutes every day waiting for files and web screens to download (that’s more than fifty-four hours a year!)—and that’s not even counting the time spent rebooting after the downloaded file crashes your computer. Now, at last, there’s an activity book to help you make the most of your computer time:
• Learn the intricate strategies of Mouse Ball Ball Bowling! • Create dazzling crafts and puzzles with floppy disks! • Discover the amazing weight-loss secrets of Printer Cable Calisthenics! • Master the New Age art of harmonizing your desktop with Feng Shui!
A few basic supplies and a working computer are all you need to turn computer frustration into rewarding creations at home or at work. And when you’re not waiting, simply close the book and use the cover as your mouse pad.
So what are you waiting for? Hal Bowman is a tech support consultant in New Jersey. He developed the activities in this book after three years of working with a 28k modem and a 486/66 processor.

Great Fun! Nov 8, 2002
I love this book! Everyone who owns a computer has all the necessary components at their disposal to make the arts and crafts projects or games and puzzles created by the author. It's a lot of fun, and would make a terrific stocking stuffer, pollyanna gift, or housewarming present, for anyone on your holiday list!
Totally demented Oct 28, 2002
I read an interview with the author in the New York Times and thought this book sounded pretty cool. Now that I have it, I can report that it is totally demented. The activities are completely nuts--what kind of person thinks this stuff up?--but the amazing thing is, they all really work. Even the Floppy Disk Halloween Mask. And the drawings are terrific. Best of all it even comes with a mouse-pad cover. It's a great gift for the computer geek in your life.
