    Whenever I have nothing else pressing I always get on the internet. The main places I spend my time are just messing around on message boards. I'm only 18 so I really don't have anything pressing but I think I'm addicted to the internet. Is this a bad thing? Haha, well I certainly don't hope so!

    Yes this forum is very addictive. This is the only one I really go to. I have racked up a lot of time over the 2 months I have been a member. Look at profile you will see. Mainly reading on stuff I plan to buy in the near future. You are not the only one addicted.

    My addiction is under the guise of research. [​IMG] I'm into digital video equipment and I scour the net and suitable message boards to learn and compare notes before buying anything. It can turn into a bottomless quest, but extremely useful.

    I can stop anytime I want, I just don't want to stop right now. I'll stop when it gets bad enough.

    If you're suggesting that I'm in denial, I'm not! [​IMG]

    I check out a few message boards. I spend time here, on guru3d.com and I help moderate the boards on Wolfservers, the gaming community I play on.

    I love reading and learning [​IMG]

    I thought I was the only one who used the research line...

    "honey what are you doing"
    "Um research"
    "What are you researching?"
    "It's technical..."

    I used to be, when I was in college and in the summer. But after I spent an entire week without leaving the house, I had to give it up. Now, I check them once or twice a day, post if I find anything worth talking about.

    Happily, I really do alot of actual research about the latest digital toys, and that tends to slop over into home theater forums and the occasional pinup website--wait, message boards, right!?
