    I go on when I get in to work, I go on before lunch, I go on after lunch, I go on before leaviong for the day, I go on when I get home, I go one before I go to bed.

    Often I go on right after having been on, in the event that someone has posted something interesting since the last time I checked my subscribed list.

    I am currently subscribed to 2,304 threads.

    Hm. this took serveral minutes to write. I wonder if anyone's writyten anything new since I last looked...

    Wasn't there a Dr. Seuss story about this?

    "I go on when in a box,
    I go on when with a fox.
    I go on when in a house,
    I go on when with a mouse."

    :biggrin:

    Seriously though.. I can quit anytime I want to. I don't have a problem. Seriously I don't...

    (I better go to main page and refresh in case there were any new posts in the last 30 seconds.)

    Tonight I'm clicking "check mail" in my Inbox every few minutes, looking for new postings in my subscribed forums. Is this normal? :confused:

    I am working on a new project and boss does not have enough time to give me proper specifications/visios.

    Whenever it happens (or I need to solve an ambiguous problem), my addition to internet increases :shy: Some sort of depression? :surprised
