To be is to perceive

In honour of Mr. Dog's return from The Queen's Veterinary School Hospital, Cambridge (presumably so named because of its specialism in 9 foot shape-shifting lizards - Prince Philip has to be sent somewhere) I am working from home. My work PC is (a) building our fine software (b) running another program loading data laboriously into a SQL Server Express 2005 server which is (c) running on a virtual machine under VMWare.
I am getting the presumably entirely false feeling that the PC is coping far better with this than it would were I actually sitting at it. Surely I am just imagining this because I am in a more relaxed environment and can't hear the disk churn? Or is there some bizarre reason I can't think of?

(fun LJ spell check suggestions - VMWare = Vampire, Firmware, Wetware, Vapourware...

you can imagine children of geeks or sinister children in a tea-time SF / fantasy series using that as a skipping rhyme 'Vampire, Firmware, Wetware, Vapourware, Vampire, Firmware, Wetware, Vapourware')
