Does anyone else dislike computers sometimes? Sure they bring us to great websites like this one, but sometimes I would just like to know that they don’t control my life. I am a student, and thus, I have to rely heavily on my computer for homework and e-mail etc., but right now I think I would enjoy being able to not go on a computer for about three weeks/months. So, why am I still on my computer now? That is a good question. And yet I will probably come back to check out what other people have to say on this subject after I have had a break. ” title=”Very Happy” />

No offense, but what I find is that the people who “hate” computers are the same ones who don’t know how to operate them and won’t bother trying.
They just expect to push a button and have it done for them.March 10, 2004 at 3:05 pm #2621
Yeah I could see how people would hate computers like that. But actually I was expressing my dislike because of a different cause. I would rather be doing something than having to be on my computer so much. I actually like solving and learning new operations on the computer. It makes me feel pretty good. ” title=”Smile” /> But I think sometimes the computer takes time away from other things I want to do. However, even with all of this said, I am still very glad I have one. I guess that is kind of contradictory. ” title=”Wink” />March 11, 2004 at 4:07 pm #2624
[color=blue:1bh3zj4i]I can relate. Especially now that I am moved far away, from all my family and friends. I have a portion of my day just spent emailing, replying, writing, sending photos.
Of course I am thrilled to be able to keep in contact with them, all for the low price of monthly internet. But some days, I just want to not find myself sitting here, when I could be outside or off doing something.
Plus, we do our banking online so I find myself back here for that.
Then there is other random bills we pay online.
Countless hours writing and reading are spent here. It’s like the internet and computer own me sometimes.
I will get grouchy if I have spent too much time at my computer. So what I am finding that works for me, is scheduling time AWAY from it. Taking breaks and going outside for a walk. It helps distract me from the fact that so much of our lives are revolved around having to use the computer, because its fast and convenient.[/color:1bh3zj4i]March 11, 2004 at 11:23 pm #2630
Yeah, I try to make time away from computers too. I don’t like to sit around that much. That’s a good idea to schedule time away from it though. Thanks!
