    I am a terrible offender, I admit it - I use my PC far too much :blush: How often do you use it each day? (I bet some of you feel guilty just thinking a number in double digits!) ;).

    lol is this something one would really want to confess to?

    I bet every person that comes on this site every day is around st least 4 -8 hours mark!!!
    Imagine how long that is in a week, month and even a year

    this could amount to more than a week on your pc!!!

    triffic question though.

    I turn my baby on in the morning (bout 1pm ish :p), put her on dowload, go out or w/e, play some games, chat on msn, and she'll finally be turned off at about 2am. She has a hard life, but i treat her well, not too rough with the keys ;).

    Whats that, im too attached hey....NEVER! PC's have feelings too (sorry KGB, laptops and macs dont, there heartless spawn), thats why they act up every so often (more often than not ;) ).

    No, No, No - I do not like you insulting laptops...

    They are the same as PC's, but more advanced so they can fit in a smaller space...

    ...They are newer than PC's, Sp they are more advanced... Newer models are always better!

    -- So i think i have proved that if desktops have feelings, laptops have better feelings--​

    Hi,
    I work week on, week off....so I suppose I only do the 8 hours (daily[​IMG]) every second week. Broadband is a godsend, I use pipex.com,:thumb: a little more than tesco, but less hassle and disconnections. Also run a wireless router between "the family". Just ordered an HP5850 wireless printer, to complete the set-up. [​IMG]
    Regards,
    O_M_A_G [​IMG]


    PS: Laptops forever.....Aye!!!
