On and off all day, probably in total 2 hours. If you are talking about playing games, my Husband has found a game called Magic Vines and he is getting to the last screen but can't get any further, it is driving him insane.

Depends on the weather and what else i,ve got on Don. Always try to keep myself occupied but 2 or 3 hours a day on the laptop is the norm although it might seem longer to other users.

Do you mean it might seem longer to other people at home waiting to use the laptop, or to other people who see so much of you on the Forum?

Hello, as I spend all day on one a work, do not tend to be on one at home much. Usually only a little bit before the cup of tea before heading for Bedforshire!

Cheers
Janet

probably about an hour a day, except when it's being a pain - like now - think it needs some TLC from an expert - or perhaps just someone with a bit of patience [ie not me! ]

All day at work, so like Janet tend not to spend too much time on it during the evening - and if I am not away at the weekend, then catch up on dowloading my pics and manipulating the images and printing some out.
email and stuff, I get done as and when - sometimes during my lunch break at work!
My web page is totally out of date! 'cause don't have the time or inclination to sort it out!
Never enough time in the day - or energy

Far too long since I discovered this Forum - it's a very, very bad influence.

Fun though.

Come to think of it, some of you lot seem to spend so much time on here, I wonder whether you really have motorhomes or at least, whether you use 'em!. (I'm waiting for mine to arrive remember so I have an excuse.)

About 2 hours a day at present plus I'm wearing Photoshop out. Reason - another owner without wheels at the moment, our van has been in for repair for 9 weeks now and holiday dates are looming - whats new?

Why assume that anyone who spends a lot of time on their computer needs to "get a life". We all have different interests and pastimes that we obviously enjoy and through personal choice this is what our lives are all about.
Whether its bird watching, train spotting or going to bingo every night its what we want to do. Plenty of people out there think you,re a complete nut for wanting to spend all of your leisure time in a tin box out on some muddy field, but thats our interest not theirs.
Agree that being totally absorbed and spending all your time on one particular subject or pastime might justify this saying, but for most of us this does,nt apply, and our time at the keyboard represents just a small propotion of a otherwise busy and varied life, and if anyone disagrees then its time to "get a life".

Thanks for that Howie. You made me feel quite "normal"

While I am waiting for my van to arrive from our German cousins I reckon my time on here is very well spent. Every good idea is written down and put in a ringbinder ready to be incorporated when my Knaus finally graces the driveway so, even as a complete newbie to MHing I should be able to look forward to a relatively snag-free first few trips. Like all married men I have to maintain a reputation as a technical "miracle worker" for the OH!

Probably about two to three hours a day on average but some of that is for work. Honestly I don't spend all of my time lurking around here.

My wife and I both have computers, we never switched them off.

When the cost of energy went sky high, I phoned Powergen, asking what it cost to run a PC.

I was quoted 7P TO 11P an hour.

So at the lowest cost, if their quote was correct,

equals 7p* 24* 90 days a quarter =£151.20

So 2 pc's were costing £302.40 a quarter.

We only turn them on now when we use them,
and my electric bill as dropped like a stone.

Sorry Don, not trying to hijack your thread.
Stan
