    I was just wondering and curious (kinda of a consensus) about how much time per day or week or both - you spend logged on here and viewing Mu-43.com.... I was going to start a Poll, but indidivual feedback is more informative.. I think I spend aprox 1-2 hrs per day or so..:smile: I would like to hear from you! :smile:

    well it auto loads on my web browser on my computer, its on my front page of apps for my iphone and ipad
    so its kinda super convenient
    prolly not long of actually looking at it daily
    but many frequent 30 seconds bursts lol

    This past Saturday I purposely unplugged. No e-mail, no iphone or ipad. Not even weather online. It was nice! Today. I'm back at it, lol.

    My answer, also, is "too much" but I'm not ready to quit just yet :)

    Some folks claim that this (disconnecting regularly - or a 'digital fast' if you like) is a good habit to get into. This gent has written an entire book on this and related issues - http://www.williampowers.com/

    Twice a day to click "new posts" and browse through the most interesting ones. I'd guess I spend ~30mins / day here. Kinda addicted... :biggrin:

    Used to be much too long. Got it trimmed now to about an hour a day, once a day weekdays. I try to stay away from computers on the weekends, but not always successfully. :rolleyes:

    Still haven't figured out a good way to read the forums without missing topics, though. Usually I open a browser tab on the "Classifieds" then open another for "Recent Discussions," But I find I often miss stuff just clicking the "Recent" link, so I've been trying the "New Posts" listings occasionally.

    When reading ongoing threads (The Real Street Thread, etc.,) I just click the "Last Page" link.

    In terms of actual TIME, not that much. But I keep quite a few tabs open on my Mac pretty much all the time and this is one of them. So I scan the list of active threads on the right quite frequently - probably many times per day some days, barely at all if I'm not at home, but when I'm at home in my office, I check in a lot. And when there's a thread or two that I'm taking an active interest in, the actual time goes up a bit. So, I'm logged in pretty much constantly, scan the list of topics pretty often, but I wouldn't say I actually spend a lot of time here. But I definitely stay in touch with what's going on...

    I tend to stop by several times a day (if I can) and scan the posts. How much time I spend depends on how many posts catch my interest. If I open lots of posts I, obviously, spend more time. The time also increases when I respond to posts. Basically . . . it depends! :biggrin:

    Between half an hour and an hour, depending on whether I post or not. Writing posts can take quite some time, but who cares, it's a hobby :smile:.
