    How many hours/day do you spend at a comp?

    I was just very curious after reading RoD's computer nerd thread, and I was wondering how much of a Computer Geek I am compared to the rest of you. I generally spend in excess of 7 hours a day in front of a computer (on a school day), and on non-school days I spend the better part of the day online. I play AC2, WC3, UT2K3, various HL, browse the net, and try to program/ learn try to program.

    Well since I'm on the computer all day at work, all night at school, and most of the weekend programming and doing homework, I'd have to say I average 9-11 hours daily.

    most my spare time.. playing games, browsing forums (posting now and then...), chatting, and programming less than i probably should...
    i usually get on when i get home from school (usually 2:30-3:30 on tuesday-thursday, about 1:30 on monday) and stay on til 2-5 am.. on days without school (friday-sunday) i'm off and on throughout the day, with a good solid 5-10 hours in the evening/night...
    If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrariwise, what it is, it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?

    anywhere from 3 - 12 hours a day, that goes for weekends and weekdays. I usually spend more time at a comp on weekdays though, homework, programming, internet. barely any games.

    What else is there to do but program? I'd say all day. (BTW, I bet I'm the only one here that STANDS while programming?)
    Code:
    #include <ip.hpp>

    If I have something else to do, which could be anything revolving going out, or other forms of home entertainment, I'll do that, if it inclines me enough. Otherwise, I'm on the pc.

    Even if I have work/school to goto early in the morning, I always get on the computer before leaving.

    bah, screw it

    I bet you're not

    My average weekday:
    6am get up and get ready
    7:30am arrive at work, sit in front of computer
    There's about 45 minutes total where I'm not in front of my computer
    4pm go home
    5pm arrive home, sit in front of computer until about 10pm
