Just curious. How many hours does everyone log on BF per day? Weeday, weekend, holiday, whatever?

Lately, I'm logging an obscene number of hours. I sometimes have to set a timer so I don't forget to go ride!

C'mon you fellow BF addicts. 'Fess up!

I used to be logged in 8 to 10 hours from work and then home. I can multi task pretty easily.

Now, maybe 1 hour..."maybe"...that would be on a busy day online. I don't really post much anymore.

1-3 Hrs. At my job, I have a program that I have to run 8-10 times in a row. It takes 45 seconds to complete. I can do a lot of surfing in 45 seconds, and I sometimes have to do it back to back all day.

It's boring but it's $30 per hour and I can switch over to BF.

I gotta figure out a heads up display and some type of Direct neural interfacing solution so I can be on BF and ride at the same time!

You are going to laugh at me on this. 30-45 minutes a day about 5 days a week. You take a look at my how many times i have posted you will be shocked. I think it is over 600, since sept.

8-10 a day easy on days when I'm "working", less if I'm out riding.

I administrate 25 forums for 2 different companies and I think I spend more time here than I do on the ones I run.

Ususally the whole time I'm at work, but I only really look at it when I'm not busy.

I usually reload and check the BMX section every 15-30 minutes when I'm on the computer, and if there's new posts, read them and maybe post, and every couple hours come over to foo, and if there's any interesting ones I read those and post.

So sometimes I'm 'logged in' for 12+ hours a day, when I have days where I'm either studying a lot and taking breaks to use the computer or just have nothing better to do.

years ago...I went into the bank to try and figure out something about my account...the bank person said, "Wow, you write a lot of checks to Domino's Pizza, don't you?" I told her it was none of her f***ing business....
