What do you use your PC/Laptop for?

I thought it would be interesting to find out what members use their PC's for outside work, so for leisure, pleasure, hobbies etc.
I think there will be too many categories for a Poll so if members would say what was the most important use to them, not necessarily the longest time spent, and then up to a total of three subjects, I will gradually add categories to the list as they come up. Your first one will earn 3 points, second 2 and third 1.
I will edit this post as each one comes in and we will see how the trends develop. So don't worry if your category is not mentioned yet, put in in your reply and I will add it in alphabetical order.
If I start with my three most important:
Video Editing
Photo Editing
Web Site Design.

Here's the running score updated to Post #1

Photo Editing mmmmmmmmmm2
Video Editing mmmmmmmmmm3
Web Site Designmmmmmmmmmm1


If anyone knows how I can make the numbers line up please say!

My wife used mine to squash a bug (it was the first thing she could grab when she saw the bug).

Yes, somehow, it still works....

It's doing better then our DVD remote, which has a broken battery cover since she was holding that in her hand when she saw a bug

In that order? You are only allowed three really but as we like you, you can have all of yours but you only get half a point for any after the first three. Are they in order of importance?
