How long are you online each day? Are you online every day? I sign on at 5:30 in the morning and pretty much do not turn my pc off until 10pm at night. There are things that I do all day, so its not like I am sitting here all day, but I feel like I am online all day. I think I am online about 6 hours a day, actually sitting here and doing something. Am I a geek? Is that too much? What do you do when you are on your pc? I surf, hang out on mylot, I play an online game, check email and I am on YahooIM all day.

Normally, I am 2-3 hrs online daily, and in that time, I check emails, chat with my friends on orkut and GTalk, play online games sometimes, download music and do mylotting... But on some days, it can even get to 5-6 hrs, coz I also download a lot of games and movies from the internet and they take a lot of time...

Hi nehrlas. No, you are not a geek as I don't want to admit myself as a geek at all. Haha. I woke up at 8AM and I will online until midnight whole day through, usually 2AM. Basically I will surf net, play games, do some research and yeah, IM, haha! I have MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, Skype (I think that it's). So friend, you are not a geek before I do

That seems like a lot of time! When I see others saying how long they are online, I do not feel as bad being on line all day. I do things offline as well, so I guess i give my cyber-travels a break.

I spend about two hours a day at the front of computer. One movie every dady become to be an inevitable part of my life.Mylot is the second favourit thing when i sit here. It steadly become to be an habit. But you know the network word is the unreal world. If you spent too much time on it there will be few left to your real world, the carer, the friends, the relatives and so on.

You are right, you can get consumed by this life. But having a 5 year old, keeps me grounded from cyberspace..hehe

About an average of 8 hours per day. I surf most of the time and sometimes download stuff, check e-mails, log on mylot. Nowadays, people are not considered geeks when they are in front of the computer most of the time, unless you are the kind the goes behind it and do some tweaking.

True, when I get my tool kit out and turn the laptop over, my husband just walks out of the room and shakes his head

I'm pretty much logged on from about 7am through to about 11pm, though I'm not actually at the computer all that time. When I am at the computer, I'm checking my email, updating my website, here, looking at facebook, doing research, studying or writing articles.

I have wireless in my house, and a laptop. So I can be all over I guess, but I stay in one place. ITs bad though, because i have the TV with the news on, and my laptop. If it were not for my son, I would probably isolate myself.

from 8am to 18pm, that is my working time, i will be on line. if i get my own laptop,i think i will stay on line even longer. that is an interesting phenomenon now, ppl have tendency to isolate themselves with the reality and open their hearts on internet...
