It's pretty much all i do in my dorm room...... surf the internet while watching tv..... i visit this site and another forum at least 4 times an hour, surf all the web-junk sites looking for new stupid videos or pics, all my bands' websites, counter-strike: source, talking to all my friends online (it's my main link to the outside world, sad no?).....

So, unless i'm asleep or in class, i'm on the internet.... :thumbsup:

I chose "I never log off". If I had cable I wouldn't ever log off. If I am not on one of the kids are.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

After catching up on the news at various sites, reading E-mails, or playing WOW, I then spend much of my spare time, off and on during the day, here at BC.
Maybe the poll should have been about the number of hours spent on-line each day, which in my case would most likely equal the number of hours I sleep!
Regards,
John

Hmm
I am confronted with a dilemma here...:thumbsup:

I am stuck between:
Never log off
Several times a day

Some days while working or out of the shop I will forget or just not log off but may not be around.
Then other days I will be lurking around the background somewhere.

So I think I can be classified as an addict also.. :flowers:

I choose "I don't EVER log off!!!" cause literally my computer never signs off, I leave it online all the time. *as arm is shaking, making it hard to type* I got cable, a router, and firewalls on all the computers. No need to log off.

I stretched "EVER" to allow for nights and vacations. As BC is my homepage, it probably looks like I'm always here, too.

I turn my comp off at night just cuz I (kinda) need silence to sleep, otherwise, I'd be like Yano. Plus, my parents turn off the modem at night...

I shut off my trading PC. Turn on my laptop for mail, BC etc.. Then I go to my school and that one goes on and will be shut down when I leave. At home there's probably some on some where most of the day. So I voted for several times a day.
