Is there a term for compulsive computer updating / optimizing as a self-soothing behavior? I feel like this is worth having a name for. I used to stay up at night watching visualizations of my computer's disk defragmenting, and it felt therapeutic. Now, I can feel a tiny spark of contentment whenever I see an alert that something on one of my devices is ready to be upgraded. That progress bar feels like a representation that something in the world is getting a little better because of me.
