Aaaaah!!!! was final table 8players left at 1274 entry mob Tilt freeroll. Chip leader by double next highest stack. Then Mom woke up and came out and it's her computer and she's old and addicted to it so I know it's pissing her off every second I'm on it. Just threw me right off and went out 8 right away. Again today head's up real money and stacks were like 5400 to 600 and she wakes up comes out and bang buddy comes back because I fast play and beats me.
Have my own computer but running Linux solo for awhile now so perhaps it's time to double up on the OS
What type of crazy live thing's have thrown off your online game?

Rally strong and it is verry hard at the final table. You Play a lot of hours to reach the final table and you have the Chance of a big winning. But without luck you have no Chance to win this tourney...
I would definitely get a laptop for yourself because that is something that can easily be avoided. you should be prepared for such things if you want to be a winning player and i you know someone else uses the computer later, its probably a bad call to start playing anyway.

Or run a virtual machine on your linux machine... Or run a virtual machine on your mom's PC, and remote desktop to it... Or make your own account on your mom's PC, install the "Enable concurrent remote desktop sessions" hack (just google it, it also enables RDP on "home" versions of windows), and remote desktop to your account, while your mom works on her own account...

If you are playing frequently doubletop and you are investing much to it, then a must is a wireless connection as a back up for when your connection goes down. There are available options in all countries to buy something like that.

LOL.....ROTFL....PMSL........ WOW... you are really living the life!
WOW man....... its time to GAL. (Get a life) (In the nicest sense if the term.)
Either get mum to sleep longer..... put more whisky in her tea (maybe bordering on the potentially unlawful... but it does allow for longer game time so maybe not that bad) .........
sort your own PC out....... or
teach her to play poker so you can finish your game, she can watch and learn, you can finish your game (and earn enough money for a proper PC with a proper OS) and then you can live happily ever after playing Home Games with each other for matches or maltesers or something else of really high value.
As for me ...... the one thing that moves me from my PC is walking the dog or going for a pee.......
