But I think that I'm in a bit worse shape than that. I have the urge to stay on line a lot longer than I do. I'm just trying to control myself. As we all know, there are so many opportunities on the Internet to learn and earn. It's hard to pass them up.

Saying you're on the internet too much here? Isn't that like telling the bar tender 'I drink too much'?

20 for me.
I want to cut down. I wasted years with television, now I feel the Internet replacing it.
If I ever get totally disabled where the only thing I can do is click a mouse, then I can justify spending hours with this tool.
The instant lookup of just about anything is pretty cool, though. Now if I could just walk away once I've looked it up.

29 for me.

But it's not always a bad thing. The gas dryer started acting up about 8 months ago. Although eons ago I was a heating & refrigeration service technician I don't know squat about gas dryers. Looking up the symptoms, in 20-30 minutes I had a possible diagnosis, confirmed with an electrical resistance check on one of the gas valves. $20 for the part and it's fixed. Total time invested about two hours, one just to go get the part.

The Internet has many uses, one of which seems to be turning into the world's greatest library. It's really straight out of the science fiction stories I read in high school.
I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.

I didn't finish the test because there's no "Never" choice. For example "How often do you lose sleep due to late-night log-ins?" That's never happened, am I supposed to put "Rarely?" Note that "Does not apply" is not the same as "Never."

And how do I answer "How often do you form new relationships with fellow on-line users?" Does the three-way with Audreyh1 and Cute Fuzzy Bunny count? I'm so confused!
