Main reason I almost never get to use the main desktop rig: the cat.
It must be a warm and/or comfortable spot. Cats intuitively invade all the best spots in the house. Exceptions: boxes. That is a weird cat thing...
Given how humid it's been lately, I often turn my A/C on to dry when I'm in my room, which has the inadvertent side effect of making the air cooler. My cruddy main rig is a laptop into the audio stuff off in a corner of my room, definitely warmer :))
I heard that cats like boxes because it's a defensive instinct. In the wild, confined spaces are good hiding places from predators. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
