According to my weekly updates my use is 136 minutes per day. That’s work, grocery shopping, and personal use combined.

The answer is on the Internet.

I need a 25 Step Program To Quit! The only time that I don't look at the phone, computer or whatever is when someone is with me, very disrespectful.

I would love to have a gauge so I know how much time I'm online.

I still have a little tan so I can't be that terrible.

I resemble that remark and the whole thread for that matter. Writes the guy with 36, 817 posts. I have been on here since July 2007 though. Nucky and some other posters would have way over that judging on a per year posting rate.

Not even close. You average 8.82 posts per day. Nucky's at 5.26. I think GG is the only one with a higher post rate than you at 8.95 per day.

3575 plus this one -- since November 2007. That is when Boomer first showed up.

Those posts average 0.88 per day -- which seems like a lot to me. But I guess it is nothing comparatively. And that is OK with me. I remember being absolutely mortified when I hit 100 posts. I was being all judgey about myself, like I should be making better use of my time. Then I got over myself by deciding that some people do needlepoint or crossword puzzles, and I call upon Boomer.

My posting seems to run in spurts. If I am avoiding something I do not want to do, either at my desk or around the house, I will circle TOTV and look for a place to land and post.

There are days when TOTV is like theater. Free theater. I love the theater.

Am I addicted? Sometimes.

(Right now, I am avoiding gathering up tax stuff. Maybe next, I will go binge-watch something.)

I wonder if those numbers take into account all of the posts that got deleted...

If they were actually deleted they probably don't show on the post count. But closed forums such as the old Politics forum weren't actually deleted so they are still counted.
