I envy your on-line library access Ed. My county library service which serves approx 4-5,000,000 people has just installed a new computer system which no longer allows members to search the library catalogue online, they have to go in and search at their local branch on the in house system. So much for new computer systems !

I can not get into games. Most are kind of scarry and violent. Like PS related forums and Photography sites. Like many of you I try and spend most computer time working on PS.

PS. Maybe an occasional visit to e-bay. Not really to buy but look.

Well, it seems like I'm a minority.

Most of the time, I'm trying to learn Photoshop 6.01 (got it friday), but when I'm not I am either:

Playing a game of Online Quake 2.
Listening to my 6 gig MP3 collection (Billy Joel and Bethoven mostly)

Usually while listening to my music, I have my online messege programs on. ICQ and MSM.

There is, of course, trying to keep one of the cats from opening and closing the CD tray on one of my systems.

So, the PC is also entertainment for the cat.

I watch DVD's, play things like Midtown Madness 2 and the Myst series, talk to friends on MSN messenger, download and listen to songs (have close to 1000 by now), and sometimes play around with audio programs and my Midi keyboard. besides that, its just loads of the three Doug listed (work, web & photo).

Wow! You mean you can use a computer for other things??!

I never would have guessed....

Ok, I do use it for email and to do my family genealogy, but that's really about it if you exclude everything on your list...

Remastering LPs to CD (main use for photo restoration s/w is making CD covers at the mo'). Games like Heroes of Might and Magic (3 and 4). Wife uses PC with CD-writer and film scanner for Kyodai.
