I am so sorry to say that I couldn’t sit for such a long time in front of the computer or tv. After I have done my computer work or watching tv for two hours or so, I prefer to do other house chores. So that there will be a change of posture which is believed to be good for our health.

I sit at the computer a great deal of the day, however I do get up to take a break to stretch my legs and give my eyes a chance to relax for a few moments. And of course I am getting something to drink also during my little breaks from the PC.

I could sit in front of my computer for 8 straight hours, if I didn't have kids to deal with. I have my computer on for longer than that, but I do other things while it is on. I have to cook dinner, wash laundry, do dishes, get kids bathes and ready for bed. I do spend the majority of my free time in front of the computer though. When the kids are gone, I can sit here for longer. It all depends on what I need to get done.

Yup... Plenty of times. The longest I think was about 10hours(6pm to 4am) straight, using a CRT monitor. I spent the time playing on the computer and I was surprised that my eyes didn't hurt.

yes i can sit in front of the computer for 8 straight hours. i've done that quite a number of times already but it's not something that i'd recommend to anyone. sooner or later your back and eyes are going to hurt.

I have done that before, but it usually when I have a major project due. It can be very tiring. Especially doing scanning, croping, organizing. I can really be a prefectionist sometimes. Or something just doesn't work right, so I end up fiddling with it forever.

I can't bear the pain associated with sitting 8 hours in front of the computer. It affects my vision and my health in general. I just log in when I'm comfortable and spend 3 hours the most! But i'm still earning...
