My thinking food is pub mix. Same for my gaming food. Pub mix just always tends to get me in the mood to do something (i.e. program, game, whatever). My drink of choice is orange soda.

Computer food is best eaten in bytes.

Usually I don't eat or drink anything while at my computer. But when I do, anything with sugar in it is good. And I know someone is going to call me a heretic for this one, but no caffeine. All caffeine ever accomplished for me was making me fall asleep. So I don't particularly care for Bawls (I am not exactly fond of the flavor either).

I sit on the top floor with The Cow and we develop software. Once I've turned the basement into an XKCD shrine (and explained said shrine to the police if anything ever happens to Randall), what would you suggest I do with my basement shrine?

Cheez-Its. Well, before my diet kicked in. That's also when I abandoned Vault (better flavor & more caffeine than Mountain Dew).

Theoretically, anything yummy that won't scatter crumbs small enough to hide inside your keyboard. Generally sandwiches, of the (meat.salad)+cheese variety (in logic terms).

Realistically, I can rarely be bothered. Therefore, the closest thing that takes the least effort to prepare. Biscuits/cookies/crackers/chocolate/cake/pie etc. are all likely candidates.

I feel much the same way, but in my case it usually is Bagels. They're quick, don't leave crumbs, and can be eaten one-handed. I buy them in 12-packs from Costco. And these are no grocery-store bagels, but good-quality, Einstein's Bagels.

As for drinks, I mostly consume water. Tea or Red Bull is occasionally used, if I plan to go late night.
I've not tried Brawls, but a lot of people seem to like them. Where can I get a sample?

My computer runs on mostly electricity, but the occasionally I do have to spin the cursor clockwise to keep the mouse wound up.

Hate eating chips at the computer, or anywere really. Discusting.

Drink? SOmthing with lots of fizz, usually orange. Piza works too, but it must be home made, my gf makes the best pizza i hear. Must try that one out one day.

I don't usually use the computer that much though, mainly at night.
Under development - my html sucks.

"Back when i was playing WoW" Sounds eerily similar to
"Back when i was hooked on cocain"

Just a funny observation.

Also, orange soda is the best for a drink.

Bacon. Big stinking piles of it.

Yes. I saw it at a tech expo once. It is also tractor-trailer-proof. It's a *bit* heavy, but really not too bad given how rugged it is.

For me it's Doritos and Coke. I'm trying to kick the Coke, but it just ain't happenin'.

Oh yeah, those toughbooks. They sell so expensively for a mediocre computer :roll: like $1200, I think they were Toshiba

About the food:
You know, I hate the colored cheesy residue that Doritos leaves on you (and your keyboard), so I usually eat salted corn chips or gum (gum works because it costs relatively less than other foods, and your fingers don't get dirty), with any drink I can get my hands on (usually Crystal Light Iced Tea)

1) Last time I checked, going to the toilet is a biological function. Do you leave your seat for that or are you "too into it"?
2) Not everything people do at a computer is extremely motivating. Say, accounting, bidding on ebay or browsing for decent pr0n to download
3) Many forum users are probably American. Eating is part of the culture.

I usually live off coffee or anything else containing caffeine.
But when my stomach starts to consume itself, i like hot cross buns, or home made hamburgers.

My keyboard is pretty messy if you were wondering :P

Nachos and Coke. Pizza when I can get it, but it isn't necessary. Mountain Dew is good for a late night of LAN games or other such nonsense hehe. Drinks with lots of sugar and caffeine, and foods with lots of cheese. That's about the best vague description.
