I don't run my computer for long if i don't have an internet connection, sometimes do it for listening to songs, that's all... maybe 2 to 3 hours, not more than that, nothing much else to do on my computer, what about you, how long do you run when you don't have an internet connection, or sometimes you don't even turn it on coz you know there is no internet connection ?

Hi, I feel really frustrated when there is no internet as happened this week for a whole 6 hours. I don;t use pc for much other things right now except to hear music and watch some movies. When I'm doing a course I then need it to do my assignments and sometimes when I get some work but lately haven't got anything extra. So mainly now I;m always online.

I still stay longer even there is no internet connection. I used computer to listen to music, playing games installed in the computer. Making some power point presentation and doing some clip art editing. I am much more on listening music and i leave it open just to listen to the song even i am sleeping.

Yeah, because computer without internet connection seems lifeless, so i made some presentation to watch for it later. I do it than watching t.v and it is all the same everyday lots of commercial. Making myself busy in making presentation i may forget that i have no internet access. Listening to music in the computer is good for me that i can sleep faster.

I guess only few people can run computer without an internet connection.Earlier i also used to run pc for 4-5 hours without net connection but now i cant even use it without net connection for one hour.Sometimes when i rip my DVD to avi files then it run for 2-3 hours else not more than hour.

Yup thats right. Large DVD files are using so much space on my hard disk.So what i do is burn the original DVD file that i've downloaded to a dvd and rip that DVD to avi to watch on my computer and that DVD for watching on TV. Ripped qaulity is almost the same as of original dvd. Same is the case with DVD's that i borrowed from my friends or that i've purchased.

I think that its boring when you don't have internet connection cause what you can do to your computer is limited. When I don't have internet connection, I seldom open my PC or never open it at all. I don't have installed games here because I play online. Maybe I keep it open for about an hour if I don't have internet. Just to check out my folders, clean it up and delete the unnecessary files.

I spend a lot of time online, and I miss the internet when it doesn't work. Unfortuneately my internet connection isn't that great, and sometimes there is no connection at all. When the internet doesn't work I sometimes play a few games on the computer or listen to music, but I must admit that my computer is a lot less interesting when there is no internet and when I can't get online I only spend an hour on less on computer. In that situation I often prefer to read a book instead of using the computer.

Yeah pretty much the same case with me.. sometimes when the net is out, the comp seems so boring and only play games and listen to music.... nothing much to do with the comp when the net isn't there... reading books is a nice way to spend some time....

Before retirement, many jobs that use a computer, without connection to the Internet. Now, I immediately turn off the computer when not connected to the internet. I need the internet.

Hey, Usually I don't even turn on my computer if their is no internet connection available. I don't know why but since I don't have anything interesting on my computer, I don't turn it on. Everything is fun when their is Internet, weird! Make sure you have a good day, Happy Lotting!!
