    Yup, when I touched a keyboard for the first time, I started throwing like a girl and tripping over my shoelaces while adjuting my suspenders.
    LOL!! ah, that was great.

    I talk about computers about 50% of the time...regardless of who it is...either they respond and we have an intelligent conversation, or...they stare at me blankly...either way I enjoy it! Which brings me to my point: Don't be afraid of your computer geek heritage(or, erm...inclination)! Where the title computer geek proudly for tomorrow you shall rule the world!

    Well, I only sleep about 6 hours a day, sometimes less - and I can't think of too much time I spend away from the computer. SO I guess the only time I am not on the computer is when I am driving to work (to be on a computer), going to the shop to buy cola - or in the Gym getting that bit of excercise that prevents me from shrivelling up from computer overuse.

    I think a good poll would be "who gets physical problems from using computers too much?". My mousing arm is shot!

    Now the sun is laid to sleep,
    Seated in thy silver chair,

    There we go, everybody - a great way to alienate your friends.

    I couldn't talk about computers that much if I wanted to...I'd have nothing to say...except, maybe, "RAM everything! Even the gigabytes!"

    speaking of talking about computers...
    A friend of mine is an IRC addict and a hardcore hardware diehard....core....uh... nerd. He's got a really monotonous voice and he tells the most boring stories in which he constantly curses.

    wow.. i can't make a relevant or interesting post today, period.

    Lets see... 168 hours in a week
    8 hour school days: * 5 days = 40;
    168 - 40 = 128;
    Sleep: 7 hours per night * 7 nights = 49;
    128 - 49 = 79;
    Hockey: 7 hours per week
    79 - 7 = 72;
    Gym: 1h 30m * 5.5 days per week = 7.15;
    72 - 7.15 = 64.85;
    Other stuff: 3 hours per day * 7 days = 21 hours;
    64.85 - 21 = 43.85;
    43.85/7 = 6.2 hours per day which I'm probably on the computer.

    Wow, very precise Eibro.

    Ken, usually I'm talking about games/how much better my computer is/new hardware/new software/funny stories about dumb people tinkering with hardware or software/etc. But yeah, when I run out of things to say and my 50% quota hasn't been reached for the day, I usually have to resort to yelling out "EMACHINES SUX!" or "NEVER USE LINUX!" (sometimes for variety I replace "LINUX" with "WINDOWS ME" Yup, its a glorious life being a computer geek.

    [edit]oh yeah, and all my friends were either computer geeks from the start or I've turned them into computer geeks (well a couple are still computer geek wanna-be's)[/edit]

    Straight men definitely aren't that organized or precise

    Hmm...I said 4 hours, but it's probably more.

    I average 8 hours a day on weekdays...

    8 * 5 = 40;

    then i get on at 8am usually weekends till around 9 at night, ie all day

    14 * 2 = 28

    Avg weekly: 68 hours. Wow, i'm on the comp and estimated 2.8 days out of the week....

    Holy crap I hope I'm not a bad programmer because I don't spend my entire life in front of the computer. I spend probably 2 hours a day programming, tops, if I have something to do or something new I want to learn.
