View Full Version : How many hours, per day, do you spend on the net?

03-06-2002, 10:10 PM
Just curious.

I've been trying to cut my hours spent in front of the computer lately, and I'm not doing to bad a job. I check in when I get home from work and I'm on for about a half an hour to an hour. I then check back in before I go to bed (which is right about now) and that lasts maybe a half hour, depending on whether or not there's something worthwhile to reply to or read. On the off chance that I'm not working a Saturday, I love to check in during the morning, surf, and drink coffee. The sky's the limit on a Saturday or Sunday morning...it's my "me" time images/icons/smile.gif.

And you?

I am usually on the net an hour or less every night before I go to bed. Every once and a blue moon I will get online in the earlier part of the day.

Probably a couple of hours. It's my main distraction from school work and stress. images/icons/smile.gif

Maybe 2 to 3 hours a day. I do home school so its not a problem. images/icons/wink.gif

I'm pathetic. images/icons/grin.gif I don't have a job right now, so I'm usually online for like 4-5 hours per day - maybe 3 or 4 hours during the day, then another hour or two in the evening.

Of course part of that time I'm jobhunting, so that counts for something. Right? images/icons/grin.gif

I hate being unemployed. It bites, and not in the good way. images/icons/wink.gif

I'm on the every night for about an hour and a half. I try to avoid going on more than once a day, but sometimes I go on for a little bit before work. I too I'm trying to cut back and do more constructive things.

3-4 hours per day images/icons/smile.gif

About five hours a week at the most (wish I had time for more tho).

03-07-2002, 03:41 AM
An hour or so a day at work mainly and about an hour a week on my mobile phone.

Cheers, images/icons/cool.gif

03-07-2002, 07:28 PM
At most I am on an hour

How many hours do I spend on the net? Too many! images/icons/smile.gif

If work checked my internet logs for all the surfing of star wars related webpages that I look up on nightshift, I think they would freak out! images/icons/grin.gif

Hey at least it's not porn. Thats a sackable offence at our work that they do check through the logs!

Couple hours in the morning, couple in the afternoon , and couple late evening.....hmmm...so probably 6 hours total, maybe more. I guess it depends on my mood. Usually I get on to chat with potj01 and sometimes I get to work on my webpage or post here. I am in between jobs right now and that sucks! images/icons/frown.gif

25 hours a day

03-08-2002, 04:30 PM
26!! Ha!

Seriously though, I rarely log on at work (like I am right now, don't tell) so I get home at 5 and check the email, ebay, bhc, etc... till around midnight on and off. So probably about 4-5 hours. On the weekends I'm even worse, unless I've just brought home a new PC game. You've got to have priorities. images/icons/grin.gif

Actually, I see my near-constant internet connection after 5 as a defense mechanism against telemarketers. There are advantages to dial-up. images/icons/grin.gif

03-08-2002, 08:32 PM
I'm on for 3 or 4 hours every day and on the weekends I'm on for 6-8 Saturday and Sunday.

03-08-2002, 09:14 PM
4-6 hours per day

07-31-2002, 07:42 PM
OMG I am sad.

On Summer Vacation/Weekends/Days off of school:

Atleast 7-8 hours. images/icons/shocked.gif

On School Days:

Atleast 2-4 hours. images/icons/shocked.gif

The only days I am not on are when I am away, or do not have access to a computer. But that will all change when I get my laptop. Then I'll be here ALL THE TIME!!!!! Muhahahahahaha!!!!! images/icons/grin.gif

I need help. Yup. images/icons/frown.gif images/icons/grin.gif images/icons/tongue.gif

Well let's see, I get in to work at about 8am and log on straight away... then I finish up at around 4 or 5. I'm usually home at about 6 or 7 and on line till around 10 - 11 at night. So what's that, about 12 hours a day? That's not a lot though, right? RIGHT? images/icons/frown.gif

OK, that might be what I call a 'heavy' day although I have had a few that go even longer. Usually when I'm at home on a weekend and my better half is away with work.

Generally I'd say an hour or so at work (gotta have those lunch breaks) and anywhere from 1 to 5 hours of an evening, depending on what I need to do (Here, Ebay, Star Walking work, Trades, Chats, etc).

08-01-2002, 09:44 AM
About 45 minutes a day (not counting d!cking around at work). Probably about double that on the weekends.

08-01-2002, 10:10 AM
At work: 8 hours---it's my job, got to love those internet related ones
At home: 0 hours

Most to all of my work at work involves the computer, but once I'm home it's about 2-2.5 hours a day, 3 or 4 days a week. Weekends, however, I try to stay off as much as possible. I have other pursuits that are best done on the weekend and avoiding the computer those days helps me get stuff done.

With all that said, my life is going through a pretty big upheaval right now, so who knows what I do now images/icons/smile.gif

08-01-2002, 01:22 PM
well, seeing as i am in the summer holidays (yes that is what we call 'vacation' in england images/icons/grin.gif ) right now, i spend about an hour and a 1/2 in the morning, same again in the early afternoonm, then about 2 hours in the evening.
Of course on a school day, its usually just about an hour and a 1/2 in the evening.

I am in the Matrix, so I'm online 4ever!!! images/icons/shocked.gif

I am on-line about 2 hours a night right before I go to bed. It helps me relax. images/icons/smile.gif

All summer I've been on somewhere between 2 and 6 hours everyday, and some nights I try to stay up all night on the net so I can sleep all day. The reason I do this is because I only have like a month left before I have to go to college, there my internet will be limited to probably half an hour everyday.
