How many hours do you spend on the computer one day?

hi, dear my friends, as the computers are more and more popular, do you consider computers as your necessary assistant? And, do you prefer to sit in front of the computer rather than do sports or other things. I have to spend almost 10 hours on it. Whether you ust it to work, study or entertain, remeber the follows: sit at least 20 inches away from the screen, and place it at or slightly below eye level. follow the 20/20/20 rule: every 20 minutes, focus on something at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds. post a reminder near your sreen that says BLINK! Research shows we blink far less often when staring at a computer, and that's a major contributor to eyestrain. Put a cacti near your screen.

he he .. I don't follow rules even i spend a lot of time on my computer. I guess i spend at least 8-9 hours everyday. This is the thing that I can't live without. Eyestrain is there & I'll try to follow "rules" that you have given. Thanks for reminding those harmful things. i guess I'll remember them ;p
