Second to SR
 
I'm sure it comes as no suprise that the largest quantity of my internet time (not including TV shows and movies (the computer is our TV as well) is spent here at SR. Second to that, I'm somewhat of an eBay junkie. How much time do you spend on the internet and where else do y'all go?

DK i spend loads of time on the internet and not doing a great deal on it! I come here lots, i check my email lots, facebook. A lady friend is coming up to Barca for a couple of days...which means i will be doing all of the above accompanied by moaning! The funny thing is that i don't just use the internet, i have movies playing in the background and listen to music as well, periodically i realise how totally insane i really am!

We have 2 computers online. Mine is in the bedroom and my gf's is in the living room. My computer is hooked up through a home system and all my music is saved on it. So, often I will have music or shows playing in the backround. My computer is pretty important to me. We just had a bunch of computer problems to where I am wanting to secure a backup machine, lol. We end up fighting over a single computer... :lmao

Fub, I'm suprised your computer still even gets you on the internet... 1990???

Fubarcdn 03-15-2009 11:27 AM

Well my computer don't do much. I am an old dude so I am not into video games. I listen to my music on a portable CD player and watch TV on an actual TV.
I seem to be here most of the day at SR.
Besides that I do a lot of financial boring stuff and I play online poker to make a few bucks.
I used to spend a lot of time on poker forums but I don't do that anymore so it is harder to find free poker games where I can make a few pesos. :)

Yeah, but I have a Pentium 1 with Windows 98, and although I can navigate the forums with it and check my email, most other sites crash the browser, even *****'s home page.

I too spend lots of time here on my
laptop internet shopping with Ebay,
Amazon, and other dept. stores....

I also send equal amounts of time
here with u guys in SR. My lifeline
to recovery. :)

I can find everything i need in the
way of keeping sober to looking
up to date with fashion.

Sweet SR..!

When I'm not on SR... Facebook. Watch Intervention episodes online. Hug my dog. And occasionally, just once in a while, I do my homework for class... but only as a last resort. :lmao

I am a complete internet addict. My laptop is with me all day unless I am physically away from it (i.e. not in the house). Aside from SR, most of my time is spent on Facebook. I used to have 3 or 4 other social networking sites that I frequented but all my friends have pretty much migrated to Facebook so I don't go to the others too much anymore. I also spend a good bit of time on food/cooking/recipe sites, and photography sites. My job's website would have taken 2nd place this time a year ago, but... oh well, things change, I guess.

I have tried buying and selling on Ebay a bit lately, I missed some real bargains last time I drank! Dammit!

I spend the rest of the time online watching stuff or downloading stuff, I am currently watching American Dad epsiodes.

stone 03-15-2009 03:31 PM

I broke the screen on my laptop last time I drank, I don't know what happened maybe I kicked it but the picture is effed up.

Isn;t drinking great! :irked:

Oh man...I spend way too much time online. Where do I go? Lets see I belong to a dozen of recovery sites or more...then there are the numerous religious, political and what the heck bulletin boards...I roll into...and the gooogle searches from astrophysics to xenophobes....damm that's 2 hours right there.
So I'm a reclusive mental patient with a GF that's an extrovert...off to runs rounds with her AA friends...you know DR. appoints and whatever...The GF is big into service work with the less than mobil friends....BTW a 84 Toyota wagon will apparently run forever...And I just de-stress on a good movie...(have all the movie channels) once a night.

Movies are the saving grace...whats commercial T.V.?
Okay '60 minutes'...very good tonight...save money everybody. :c029:
