Twebty four some days. None at all others. But on average, my main work system runs 24/7 and I'll be at the console on and off over a 12 to 16 hour period. I write IT tech professionally, research and interact with my workplaces online, and spend time at the PC actually writing the stuff I get paid for. Working hours are flexible for people such as me, and everyday life is fitted into it when necessary :D
I've just taken a break, for example, to chat socially with you, and I'm about to head off to pick up a washing machine that's been in for repairs. But the system stays running, and I'll return to a new set of alerts that have popped up for me to deal with :)
I'm on mine all day long. I take a few breaks here and there, maybe take a bike ride, play a little, and stuff like that. My computer stays on 24-7 because I'm either on it, or on a short break away from it.
well I would have liked to have it sooner but it just wasnt available in my area, but actually I needed it as I was on dial up and exceeding the monthly allowance every month and having to switch to pay by minute which was not fun! So I don't really think I'll be using it less LOL It just makes life easier for me and cheaper!
The first day or so I thought it was super fast as I was used to typing and waiting for something to happen, but after a couple of days I just got used to typing faster again like I do at work. Now it doesnt seem so different except when downloading, then it really makes a difference :)
What has REALLY made more of an impact is upgrading my RAM now the poor computer can keep up with the fast broadband haha
Generally spend up to 10 hours a day on various systems at work, depending on my interaction with other people. Then put my PC an hour or two after I get home, turn it off before about 30mins before I go to sleep, although don't always use it all the time because I watch DVDs, listen to music via Napster, or play some games, my actual staring at the screen time varies.
I wonder if using a computer screen alot will effect my vision in later life. I agree with letscode, a good ergonomic seating position is needed, and promote this with all my users.
This is such a hard question. Durring the week I get paid to be on a computer for 8 hours ever day. Then when I go home I play around with my own stuff for a few hours. However on weekends I rarely touch my computer, except maybe sunday.
So I'd guess between 8 and 16 hours a day depending on what is going on.
how many hours aday are you huys on the computer :idea:
My computers stay on 24/7 and someone is on one of them all the waking hours, whether it´s the children or the wife or me working. Two of them are wireless and end up in one of the ends of the house most times. I need one of those alarms you can use on your mobile handsets to find them sometimes :cheesy:
I'm on the computer about 14-16 hours on a normal work day, and on/off about 6-12 hours on a non-work day. Needless to say, the only reason my wife isn't very upset is because I got her to play on one too! :twisted:
All day. I have a laptop with me at all times, and unless I'm walking somewhere or possibly showering (though that is hardly on a daily basis) I am usually either programming, browsing the Internet, or doing something else that is computer related. In fact, my laptop is usually with me during all times of the night - because I generally go to sleep using it.
Hmm it depends, If I am at home all day, i'll be on my computer bar obtaining of food and toilet goings, on a normal day I usually get up, go on comp, go to uni, get home, straight back on computer and stay there for most of the evening. But weekends I am usually dragged to some rat out insane place due to the fact i have a car. Right now, infact i have hijacked my friends computer for the most of today! Alas, Can i spend a day without one? Probably, but i really cant be bothered.
