    50-75 points: You're a full-fledged Internet nerd. Join the club.

    75-100 points: You're an Internet addict. Try going to the library this week, it'll do you some good.

    Guess this is a little outdated. I don't even have a telephone at my home, at least not one that is answered or called by humans. I have a cellphone and skype for that stuff.

          Alot of us work from home to save the commute, or the commute is simply impossible to do. Being on the other side of the Country or in another Country. I am on here at 3:30-4:00 am EST, and sometimes finish before noon. However, i also sometimes finish into the evening.. As you can note: I take alot of random breaks, and dont always have time to stop for lunch..

          Also, paying $5.00 a month for Internet and using Newsgroups that way was an early to mid-1990s kiind of thing, my ISP just opened some new plans for $99.99 home cable internet. They also plan on being the first in Canada to use 4G home internet, with a dual modem "Cable and 4G modem", using the cable for redundant backup if the 4G was to go down.. Rogers has not gone down here in many years..

              I don't feel like an internet junkie; I golf daily...with my smart phone with me, I eat out and go to movies...with my smart phone on my lap, I hang out with my friends at their long as they have internet access and I go on vacations with my lap top. teeth|skin|diet

                How many points is "Writing in a strange font, italicizing it, and making it cyan colored" worth?

                    Lol. I had a party a couple of weeks ago... bonfire, drinking, music, sex in the bushes, your normal decadent party. One of the attendees got furious with me and stormed out because I wouldn't give him the wap keys to my wireless router so he could log into my network and get online with his netbook. Now THAT'S a junkie.

                      I am quickly becoming an internet junkie but that is no bad thing as I am learning stuff about everything under the sun that would require the National Library scale of books to show me. I think we are all internet junkies as we are all linked to everyone else. And I think it is a good thing. I just love reading about ghosts one minute and holiday campsites in Cornwall the next then chatting with a friend in Australia the next. There is nothing wrong with been an internet junkie so long as you still wash and sleep...he he he
