    I spend about 3 hours a day on the computer, some times more and I would spend more time online, but I have a younge family and my job also takes up a lot of my time and of course they both come first with me anyway.

    I think the amount of time you spend on the computer can be effected by wether or not your job is computer related. My Dad is a computer programer for HSBC, spends his 7 hours a day on a computer and so often when he gets home, he is not interested in going anywhere near the computer. Durring the weekend it is often different.

    For me I don't have frequent access to a computer at school so I spend loads of time on the computer when I'm at home. And of course I'm involved in several online communities such as wilders, where I enjoy.

    When my back starts to ache like heck, and people call me a Vampire, then I know I spend too much time on/at the PC.

    Hehe

    A few minutes at a time, for about 45 minutes a day. Not very long.

    More then I should considering how much else I got to do. Several hours a day. Two or three. The problem is and it is a problem for other areas in my life too, I am not a clock watcher not even at work. So things can get really out of control. Which is why I am sure I am a "night owl." You did not really specify I guess you me forum :ninja: but I would have to add a little more time if you want to add in my fiddle and maintaince time on two Machines. :eek:

    Hey Dazed and Confused that's a lot of posts for such a little bit of time are you sure you don't have my problem. You really can't get a handle on how much time you spend? :D

    It depends on if I find something interesting on the genealogy or security boards. I do a lot of genie research for other people. Usually several hours a day, but I have to share time with my spouse.

    I sometimes spend 12 hours on the computer. I browse the web for work from home jobs (data entry) so that I can get funds to meet my medical expenditure. Also, I spend a few hours on this and another forum.

    The vast majority of my waking hours (other than out walking the dog or doing light shopping), not necessarily online. I'm disabled/retired, and these days my friends, support, and recreation are all pretty much "out here".

    Usually, depending on what is to be done. I am handicapped because of osteoarthiritis and hence spend a lot of time on the computer.

    Have a nice day.

    anywhere between 3 to 18 hours, depending on who's watching over my shoulder, and what tomorrow's schedule brings.

    Also much too long here. I have a physical disability and I reckon the computer has saved my sanity. I could spend 8 to 10 hours at the computer on a good day, even though I say I spend too long on it I also enjoy all my time using it. :rolleyes:

    8 hours per day, of which 5, 6 hours at work.
    Wilders takes a lot of time, anything up to an hour per day I guess.

    4-5 hours on normal days, up to 12 hours on holidays, and I STILL have only a small eye power (+0.5)!!!!

    For Wilders usually about 2 hours, 4-5 on holidays. Same amount for other Internet work.

    Rest is GAMES GAMES GAMES!!!!!
