I'm usually found on Youtube or 9gag to pass the time on the internet.

For games, I usually range from a lot of games, more on the classic side: (Diablo I and II, Postal 2, Mari0, Garry's Mod).

So, what do you guys do on your spare time on the interwebs or what games do you like to play?

If i'm bored with the PC, I turn it off. I play outside instead or play console games. :thumbup2:

lol Animal, so true.

I don't turn my machine off, I just turn off the internet and go outside or do house work, laundry, walk the dogs, count blades of grass, look for the beginnings of new life in my veg garden, or look at the birds through the binoculars. I don't ever turn my machine off unless I have to physically move it. Restarts, yes when required.

My boredom comes from writers block most of the time.

Im rarely bored, and even when I am bored like I was today, I went out and worked on my lawn, I love the outdoors. Though, probably my favorite thing to do on the computer is game-right now its primarily COD mw3, and occasionally Battlefield 3. I also enjoy being active on forums like this as well as christian forums.

I keep Football Manager 2012 running in a window whilst browsing the net. While I'm waiting for it to load I look at bleep on Cracked or youtube or something. It's not the most action-packed game ever but it's really immersive/addictive when you get into it, and it doesn't need to be paused or anything, you can just leave it there/come back when you feel like it. I wish there were other games with that type of gameplay that you could run in a window/whilst doing other things.

I copy videos to my hard drive not because I'm bored. But because I 1) "cut the cable" and I go without cable and satellite TV 2) I like to view content minus the annoying commercial pitch 3) I'm a Video Librarian at heart 4) for many other reasons related to personal satisfaction. I run videos thru Windows Media Player in shuffle mode and it's one of life's greatest treasures with videos of my favorite subjects running without commercials one right after another. I have thousands copied to my hard drive. Lots and lots of YouTube videos, thousands of 'em. I find the process of copying videos addicting and enjoyable. Sometimes I joke to myself about putting them on a DVD and selling them on the black market Tony Soprano style. Cutting the cable was especially gratifying because of the occasional horrendous customer service rendered by Time Warner Cable Company and because it's nice to save $60 a month.

More likely than anything, I'll be listening to music on Youtube or playing Diablo (which I am glad runs on Windows 7).

When I get bored while using the computer my favorite thing to do is log off, walk away from it and find something else to do.

Rarely bored, usually you can find me in BC's Chat, ARFCOM keeps me occupied along with Gunbroker and other similar sights, Facebook, and World of Warcraft (I blame Gal for this last one.) This is when time permits which seems to happen less and less often now.
