How often do you check bikeforums?
 
Be honest...

timmhaan 12-02-05 03:08 PM

i just go back and forth whenever i'm in front of my 'puter at work, so literially i'm checking it every few minutes or so. but i'm doing work at exactly the same time, so it's all good. i don't post as much as some people however.

Same here.

Since I spend the whole day at work on the computer, BF is always up in the background. Everytime I have a progress bar or have to wait for someone to send me something, I refresh the page(s).

HiYoSilver 12-02-05 03:45 PM

Where's the multiple choice option?

I tend to go in spurts:

1. most common is every couple hours, but working to reduce to 1 hour/day

2. sometimes will only check in once a week. it mostly depends on how heathly I'm feeling

Cromulent 12-02-05 03:46 PM

It depends. If at work... a lot. If at home... not so much.

I have been caught on it by co-workers on various times of the workday. I 'minimize' it on my screen. Might get me fired someday because of it :D

Do like I do. Switch to a left handed mouse, hide the mouse behind the monitor and learn to automatically return the pointer to the upper right corner. It's amazing how guileless you can look while your boss is walking towards you as you are clicking your mouse to close your browser.

How often do I check Bike Forums? Or....how often do I check life to make sure it is still there?

MadMan2k 12-02-05 07:04 PM

I usually cycle through the tabs I have open in Opera, reloading pages and going to a different sub-forum if there's no new topics. I have three different forums I do that on, and I'm usually browsing and drooling at bike stuff or camera stuff also.

I used to also have a few conversation windows open at once, including IRC, but rarely anymore.

Gurgus 12-02-05 07:45 PM

All day at work.

hi565 12-02-05 07:58 PM

Too much, most of the time.

Well that's life!

I see obsessive compulsive internet disorder in the results:)

webist 12-02-05 09:39 PM

Pretty much every day when in the office. Sometimes work interferes so I checked every 2 or 3 days.

Polonswim 12-02-05 10:01 PM

Let's see......the vast waste land that we call TV or something educational, entertaining, and sometimes sobering like BF. Bike Forums wins hands down. Daily or nightly as the case may be.

slvoid 12-02-05 10:21 PM

I have a mouse with multiple buttons and I map one of the unused ones to minimize.
Lightning fast mimimize. :)

cosmo starr 12-03-05 01:02 AM

this is the first post ive read in 4 months...but now that im back itll be every few hours or so

Maelstrom 12-03-05 09:51 AM

Every 2 to 4 hours. It really depends on how busy work is. But on average I bet 4 hours.

huhenio 12-03-05 10:10 AM

I use BF as my personal entertainment - educational interactive toy.

I can yell at the TV and not get an answer, but if I yell here I might get b#slapped or something.

It kills the numbness of suburbann living .... trust me ..... you do not want to live here.

Safe ... yes .... but too dull

cycle17 12-03-05 12:43 PM

Daily most times. Sometimes if I'm busy it may be a few days. This place is like my extended family.

Zin 12-03-05 12:53 PM

I used to check it several times a day. Now, a couple times a week.

DataJunkie 12-03-05 05:30 PM

Daily on the weekend to several times a day. Once every 2 hrs while working.

clausen 12-03-05 07:04 PM

Every 2 hours when at work. 5-6 whenI'm not working. The wife keeps me busy. :D


All times are GMT -6. The time now is 03:25 AM.
