I was wondering..since we are all so addicted..can too much time spent here lead to blindness..Will the surgeon general come out with warnings like it does for cigarettes and other things bad for your health..I think it has been the best thing in my life..but my eyes..oh my..sometimes they become so crossed...perhpas I should adjust the computer screen ???

I think you need to be aware that spending all your time on the computer reduces your social life

Oh thats funny, thanks for that. I needed a bit of light relief. You are right, its easy to spend too much time here and forget to take regular breaks.

I think Blindness can have many causes but I dont think Mylot is a major contributor. I think though that mylot could be helping me afford a new pair of glasses. I think that perhaps you should get a projector and project your screen on the wall and keep the keyboard and mouse in your lap to ease the carpal tunnel syndrome

LOL..I dont have to worry about my eyes..I am not on as much as everyone else...The point is ..can too much time on the computer screen have affects on one's eyes and if so..can one do something to avoid the side effects of long periods of time looking at the screen..Thanks for your advice..I love mylot..I make too much on them to find fault...no insult was intended!!!
