Not a well constructed instrument IMO.

I do ALL my shopping practically on line. I have more on line friends than real friends. I'm off and on all day--hard to put a figure onit, as I'm at my desk at work a majority of the 9 hour day and the net's always "on". When I come home a good part of my evening is catching up fully with things I couldn't while working.

But do I think it's a problem....no. Because when I actually ahve something I want to do with a real person, or an exciting alternate activity, the Internet doesn't somehow beckon to me to forgo other such things.

I think the computer may be the downfall of us all eventually though..
why? Because we're becoming so dependent upon it, once cyber terrorists find a way to really f things up, we're going to be in serious trouble.

Financial and Emergency System Collapses, Power Outages Oh My DOOM I say
lol

But really when one thinks about it...well hmmm...we better just stay skilled in the old fashioned way of doing things.

Congratulations, your score is: 30

20 - 49 points: You are an average on-line user. You may surf the Web a bit too long at times, but you have control over your usage.

I tried to be as honest as i could, but expected a higher/worse score.

Woohoo............room for more internet time.
