For me, I honestly check out the "Coupons and Bargains" area first since sometimes someone will post a time-sensitive item and I'd kick myself if I missed it. Next, software is my longest time-spender. I hit these two every trip.

I always try to hit Hardware, Polls, After Hours, and Movies at least once a week, and on a blue moon I'll hit Building a home theater. Though, "Coupons and Bargains" is always my first hit even though I spend the least time there. How about you guys? What is your first destination?

Usually a methodical top down approach is what I use, unless I'm actively looking for answers, then it's off to the specific forum.

Currently I steer over to Movies, slap the filmsnobs about a bit and make a run for it, than I head down to Software check for some good dvd previews, I post the odd one sentence excitement over an upcoming release just to let the legion of software members who don't seem to exist anywhere else on the forum know that I dabble in dvd too.

Than I quickly move onto After Hours for a good stiff drink check for any closed threads, grumble when there aren't any, congrat someone for his new post milestone (usually PatSun), and head for polls, post a word or two in a new poll, knowing that exactly the same poll will appear in 6 weeks or so, and skip all the tourneys as usual (sorry guys).

Than briefly visit TV shows, usually find that I havent watched any tv shows in ages that wasn't animated.

I accidently dropped into Hardware once, but sneaked out just in time, phew, hope no one noticed.
