I work in IT. I spend all days watching spinning icons.

@garyackerman I find moving the mouse in circles speeds the computer up.

@skanman And when you want to really speed it up, you click, click, click while moving the mouse!

@garyackerman I'll definitely try that next time, but I know me, I'll probably accidentally click cancel. I'm still curious about Microsoft's algorithms for their progress bars, 3 seconds to 99%, 10 minutes to 100%

@skanman Progress bars are random... but they give us something to watch!

@garyackerman I worked in data entry for years and I would just like to apologize for all my coworkers over the years.

@garyackerman huh. I usually only get stuck watching "busy" spinners on windows.
