I get way behind, I went on vacation a couple of weeks ago for 6 days, and when I logged on, I had 52 messages.

Ditto what steve said. I don't have a computer. all I have is webtv, which is just a internet box. I have several things that I check daily. Yes, I would go nuts if I had to go a week without the net.

Oh, you don't even wanna know. I was on a plane last night and they had these phones where you could pay $2 a minute for a slow-ass internet connection. If I had a laptop, I probably would have racked up a $200 bill....

well then this is REALLY off the subject....im not a broker or have any ulterior motive ..would just like to share my good fortune with my TC buds... think about getting a few internet investments going for your future if you havent done so already...

The numbers of Internet users:

142 million worldwide in 1998
502 million worldwide in 2003
That is 72 million added per year or 197,000 a day

63 million in United States in 1998
177 million in United States in 2003
That is 23 million added per year or 62,500 per day

I don't think I am dependant on my computer. I can use any one of the 3 pc's I own. I also use the unix X terminals at school. So, I never miss out.

This site is almost the only reason I have a computer and internet service. I spend about an hour to an hour and a half a day browsing through the tech forum. I may not post replies every day, but I cruise through here daily. So the answer is, I'm very dependant on this computer.

Very, Very dependent - lost my hard drive at work a few months ago and hardly knew what to do till it was back. PS guys; BACK YOUR STUFF UP! I couldn't believe what I lost !

Why is there never enough time or money to do it right the first time, but ALWAYS enough to do it over?

Ummm, its how I make my living. I keep others machines up. I'll throw some figures out of what I monitor (realize this is THE largest corporate network in the world).

900+ Unix servers
17,000+ Cisco routers.
800+ NT Servers

A: NOT. But for Team Chevelle, I'd never even turn the frickin' thing on. Like T.V.....Haven't watched a show on a regular basis (i.e. at least once a month) since M*A*S*H.
