I too have been so accused. I tried the laptop solution and it didn't seem
to help. Every time I'd get interested in something on my screen, "SHE"
would detect it and ask me some trick question related to what "SHE" was
watching on the TV, or otherwise see if it took more than a nanosecond to
get my full attention etc... I found that using the laptop where "SHE" is
resulted in more resentment than if I spent the time at my desk...
I think it's because when I'm using the computer at my desk, it only bugs
her when she thinks of me, and realizes where I am. When I'm using the
computer in her sight, she doesn't stop thinking about it, and spends the
whole time feeling jealous...
Hopefully the OP's mileage will vary. ;-)
