    Hiya guys! Well, I'm a chemistry major, and I'm actually approaching a seriously freakish semester workload which starts in a few days. On top of this, I am juggling two jobs to pay off the medical bills from my car accident in which my car was a total loss, and my bills to pay, which is gonna set me back a good amount. I'd like to request a temporary leave of absence or suspension until mid-June of this year. Hopefully this won't be that bad, but I need all the focus I can get for a schedule like this.

    Thanks, and I hope to see you guys again soon! ;)

    I don't get it.

    So, what's wrong with just not logging in for the next few months?
    Do you want to not be ABLE to log in to avoid the temptation when you should be studying?

    Yeah. That's sort of what I'm hoping will happen. :P See, on school days, I tend to come here for "five minutes" to look at things, and then it becomes ten, then thirty, then an hour. With three sciences and a math, not exactly affordable, lol.

    Just change your password to a ton of random characters and log out. When you want to return, simply have your random password emailed to you, and you can log in again.

    I know what you mean .. but I'm not fired yet :P

    You need something stronger though. Even then you could still lurk.
    (I've tried it, though. It's like being dead and coming back to see friends. You can see everyone in kind of a disembodied, no-signature kinda way ... but you can't SAY or DO anything and you know they can't see you. REALLY tempting to just log in and comment.)

    I don't think it'll help, you can still look at things without logging in.

    I have anti-social on my computer. Basically? What does it do? Sets a timer that can't be stopped to block access to a specific website. For as long as I need. ;)
