ok, little story: my twin bro & i were sharing an apartment & 1 eve i started working on a prog (drawing a garage for my folks house in autocadLT 1.0). my bro eventually went off to his room but then got up 2 use the facilities. ok, but then he started making coffee & i asked what in the world he was doing - he was getting ready for work! evidently i hadnt budged from the sys for over 10 hrs & it seemed like *maybe* an hr had gone by 2 me!!!! weirdest personal pc experience of my life.
Secret of Mana was probably my favorite game of all time for the SNES. It was one of the games that I played A LOT. And I do mean A LOT. Other games that I played a lot were Street Fighter II, Super Mario Kart, Legend of Zelda, and Starfox. I played these games as much as I use my computer now. I had strategies (books + magazines) for all these games as well as weekly tournaments with friends (for Mario Kart and Street Fighter II).
The best was when my friend brought SNES to school and we had a class tournament. Doesn't get much better than that.
If anyone is good at Super Mario Kart or Street Fighter (SNES or PS1), I'd like to play against you. Dani is the only person I know that can really play Mario Kart. I give her extra points for being a girl. ;)
So, if my calculation of Jayant's computer use time is correct, He is basicly attached via intravenous tube to his computer for over 22 1/2 hours a day... No wunder he has to be reminded to study!
I use the computer at werk all day. When I'm home I'll just as often turn on a movie or playstation game. Last night I started playing the origional Gauntlet on the system, next thing I know it's 1 am and I gotta get up in 6 hours. DOH:!:
Far longer than is considered safe by OSHA. Sitting for 18 or more hours a day staring at the brilliant glow of a moniter has made my eyes not only beady, but also hyper sensitive to light. But I figure once they get too bad I could just use my optical mouse for some home style laser eye surgery. :cheesy:
ive nearly lost my job over my computer i used to sit up most of the night sleep for a few hours then got to work which was fine for a while. Until it started to catch up with me then i was falling asleep at work and when i got caught i got threat'nd with my job and with that i thought id better get it sorted so i sold it!!!!!!
but i got in a long term relationship thought its time to buy another had it for a year got broadband and im nearly back to how it was before. NOW my missus got upset that i was spending all my time on the pc so i moved it to the front room to keep her happy which she is for now (im in the same room as her). i just cant stop
but i use a pc at work for about 5 hours per day (i use CAD for setting out lettering on headstones) then i spend the rest of the day lettering the stones. i get home and spend about 4 or 5 hours browsing and downloading. Not to mention weekends
