what do you do with your computer

May 9, 2008 6:51am CST
most of my classmates have computers, as i know, most of them use it to play game, or chat by MSN or watching film ,series and so on. i believe it is quite a waste to use computer in such way. anyhow, what the computer can provide us are so much information that we should be wise enough to make good use of it

Well i am having a computer for the past 9 years and this is my 3rd Computer. As you said yes it is a waste to use a computer or to own one for just playing games and chatting, unless they are with that extreme free time to enjoy. To me its all a different world, as long as i am on the computer i learn a lot of things along with being in contact with my friends, chatting with them, playing games now and then. Let me list what all i do on my computer, 1) Few programming stuff which i try every now and then which i cannot try on the office computers. 2) Managing my own websites to which i sure will need a computer to keep them upto date. 3) Manage my bank accounts and do online trading. 4) Chatting with friends and checking my personal mails which i cannot reply to while in the office. 5) Browsing some news and cricket articles. 6) Now and then playing some games to just have some fun. 7) Some times i watch movies which i download on the internet. 8) Music is what i love while working and almost all the time music will be running on the system. 9) Stores a lot of e-books which i can go through when ever i have to kill some time. 10) Learning lot of new things by browsing various websites. Thanks for the discussion since i felt happy while replying to this as i had to recollect how far i am utilising my computer.

i agree with it. for me, i rather use it to earn money online instead of just watching movie and chit chat. Well, I didn't say we can't chat at all, but not all the time coz not all your friends will online always, right? so, lately apart from earn money like join myLot, I always use it to learn new words that I never learn, find information on learning japanese language (quite tough), keep in touch with friend by blogging lo..

I seldom chat on my computer since no one bothers to chat with me. I use it to learn stuffs online, do research, create projects and of course, make money. It is a waste to use the computer to chat or play game. It is a waste of the processing power and resources.
