    I seem to use a computer more and more as I get older. Since I use a computer all day for work and then come home and use one as a hobby I probably spend more time in front of a computer than anywhere else. How scary!!

    Answer the poll question and see how you compare with other computer users.

    Now that school is done, I spend around 5-6 hours a day but not in a row. Divided time throughout the day.

    I do 7-8 in my basement near my computer, but about 3 hours of that is sleeping after work, another 2 is a movie (I watch one every day now) and then some browsing for an hour and then a good round of TF2 usually. So like 3 hours really. On Fridays to Sunday night however I'm nowhere near a computer

    Probably about 5-6 hours max but more like 3-4 hours on a normal day, non-consecutive.

    Depends if I have other things to do. I watch less tv these days as there is usually crap on.

    Since I got laid-off, most of the day. I'm really surprised this PC hasn't died yet, it's been running on the same format and hardware for over 3 years. Yeah, this PC is way out of date.

    I really of nothing else to do these days. I watch TV, but I'm not that big of a TV person.

    I'm either: reading novels/comics, out playing sports with friends, sleeping/eating, or I'm on the computer.

    I'd say... 5-6 hours.

    Well so far its safe to say that most people spent a pretty hefty amount of time on their computer. I have to say I feel a bit better knowing it's not only me that uses a computer all day for work and then comes home and uses it for leisure too.

    I know my eyesights gotten worse over the past few years but the optician insists it's nothing to do with using a computer. hmmm...

    Around 7-8 hours. Really bad if you ask me.
    Before it was even worse, more then 10 hours wasn't an exception.
    But now with my Wii and DS, it's gotten a bit better.

    All in the vacation ofcourse.
    When it's school, hardly 2 hours.

    It all depends where I am at the time. If I have a decent internet connection I can spend anywhere from 5 to 26 hours a day on the computer.
