    i voted six to ten hours but it depends on whether its a school day or weekend, and whether im at my moms or dads. i usually use my computer quite a lot; even if im not currently using it, i leave it on for folding@home.

    I vote 6 to 10 hours, 4 or so before work,4 or 5 after work. On my days off, could be most of the day. God I need some sleep.

    Well, my jobs both involve computers so I spend most of my day in or around them. I voted 10+ hours.

    If I'm not saving the world from users that can't remember their passwords, I'm busily burning the midnight oil creating my next program.

    Sad, I know, but I have to pay the bills :p

    Voted 6 to 10, although 10 would probably have been safe enough.

    An average of 2-3 hours a day (no games), and my dilemma is whether I should use some of this time doing some physical exercises... Computers are not very healthy in the long run and tend to be become addictive.

    Sometimes I will spend a whole evening surfing the web, after spending a whole day at work infront of my computer, but usually I only get time for 30mins-1hour in the evening, and at weekends im usually out and about.

    I try my very best to get in at least six hours a day before I go to work, then perhaps 30-45 minutes after I get home from work.

    It's a necessity for what I do. Pete

    More or less about 3 hrs most of the time, but sometimes if I have nothing to do maybe more. ;)

    I got mentally tired easily and I couldn't take to stay long infront of a pc monitor . Aside from that I am worried bout the radiations and magnetic fields that the pc crt monitor emits. :mad: :(

    I used to drive expediting runs which required picking up assembly plant supplies (for Ford, GM, ToyOta etc), usually at about 5 PM, and drive the entire night either far north or south to make it to the gate docks by 6 or 7 AM. (CargoVan). Then head off to the nearest Truck Stop for shut eye after delivery, get up about lunch and ready for another dispatch that afternoon or evening again. Covered a lot of interstate territory and worked many more hours that way, one year an entire 365 day schedule just to make a personal and company record. Whew!

    3 years ago i thought that was quite a demanding heavy schedule.

    Out of nothing but pure curiosity after only about 3 months into retirement i wondered onto a spring Yard Sale pc unit with Windows 98 for 150USD, and like they say, the rest is history.

    Just when i thought i would retire and relax from all those travels and labors, looks like i've discovered something to outdistanced myself again.

    That's right, i've now become so attached to these table-top modular marvels that worse than my own ciggy habit, i would probably suffer from major withdrawl symptoms harder than a drug addict or go into some form of DT's without one.

    I know i put more than 12 hours a day or night or both in front of this screen. :blink:

    I mod on two forums and admin on another and it takes at least ten hours a day to cover it.

    I don't otherwise it might break lol

    Seriously it all depends, different every day, depends what i have to do, so i didn't actually vote on this.

    Probably too much some days, but better to addicted to this than lots of other things hey ! The most i can get from it is radiation poisoning, and maybe needing glasses after a while, so no worries here, i don't think anyway !
