Help me out fellow members. My wife thinks I'm addicted to this site. How much time do you spend reviewing all the comments, questions, and answers?

I probably spend about 10 hours a week messing around on the 'net, on different things, but a high percentage of that time is checking out various discussion groups, time spent is variable, I find I tend to respond to other posts rather than initiate, so my commitment is governed by who's been saying what.
Something that is guaranteed to turn me off a site are the 'off-topic' news items that inevitably turn into rants! and I'm usually daft enough to try and argue reason in the beginning - so that makes me as moronic as the rest I guess, then it gets progressively worse. So I tend to drift away from the site for a while, not the admin's fault and it does tend to spoil sites I think.
Mind you,I've lots of little hang-ups and don't check posts that are obviously provocative, or use all CAPS or have open ended headers like Help wanted.
How's that for a little rant all on my own :eek:gre:
:wav: must say I'm also very addicted to smileys.
Also find that time spent on this site is directly related to just how little I want to do the work that I logged on for in the first place - :thebirdman:
aka displacement theory . so I guess, given all this dross that I've just typed I really don't want to prepare handouts for tomorrows class! :banghead:
Have we got even more smileys? don't remember seeing that last one yesterday? 8)

Also, I like the way the same people turn up on different sites, on the net as well as on the ground. You can have conversations with the same people on different discussion forums,
beats working any day 8) :twisted:

Shame on you!

You know if you're not 'working' you should be doing more relaxing things such as ironing, washing, baking, making the beds, washing up or perhaps getting his meal ready.

:D

I would have to look at the routers log, as the thing stays switched on (bb) and its so easy just to check if around the PC
but maybe an hour in the morning and the rest depends on if I am playing radio in the evening I may look in then (like now)

I think he's probably worried about his post count with us two (well, you)
around. But will justice prevail I ask myself?

Post count doesnt bother me,
Its the "quality & mix" of contributors that makes a board.
Think you were both on this board before me, twooks ceraitnly was. Yesterday I was out all day so when I sat down there appeared to be a lot.

You are absolutely right on the "quality and mix" aspect. I joined this board after you and immediately felt that it was a good resource under used.
Contributers won't come back to a 'sleeping' board and I did feel that if a hard core of contributers could keep posting regularly it would encourage others to participate.

This "hard core" concept in motorhomers I find hard to imagine. Do they have face piercings and flames on the side of their vehicles ? I suppose it's a bit like music. You get 'hard core urban' but have you ever tried going into HMV music store and finding 'extreme rural'.

I must say, I thought all motorhomers were all called Nigel and Simone, wore beards, liked real ale, and always went to Devon. Since I came only these boards I suddenly realised we're all quite normal.

Nice to see the boards so active. I access from work when I'm feeling stressed and thinking of what I plan for the weekend quite relaxing. I love it.

We're not normal, we are way beyond that! we are the creme de la wotsit, the sensible rational got it sussed lot. And at this time of the morning quite insane! :wink:
You must be thinking of caravanners !! :twisted:
and yes gillian, I reckon justice will prevail over nukey nevermind anyone else.
still quality not quantity 8) and now we've hit 500 and the e-mails have gone out just checking for new posts could be a full time job.
Don't envy moderators.

Is that why you are checking between 3.00am and 5.00am?
At that time it should be possible to read the 'bag' of old mails faster than the new ones coming in. :)

It is quicker, at that time I was often the only one on line I think. So, caught up on mails - without having to watch for new ones coming in - and got a chance to check out some more piccies, and info from Nuke.
But, mainly it's age - if I wake up I can't get back to sleep without a gap, and sshhh I'm a secret addict, and that's the best time to sneak on - I can always claim to have only just gone on line!
:wink: :lol: 8)

Out of interest Gill, do you still have the tourer or did you flog it ?
Andrew said that he was very happy to return to Chateau Le Verdoyer each year for his holiday. With that in mind we bought a holiday static from the Dutch owners so that we have somewhere to go with him for June. The rest of the season they let it for us and it earns more than its keep.
We only kept a tourer because he didn't particularly like the motorhome so we sold it and the Vectra and put the money into a new motorhome.
We now have a base to go from in the Spring and Autumn when we have our own holiday.
