Question Surfing the WEB when you are off work..

Am I the only one out there who hardley ever wants to even look at a computer when you get home; just to check you daily WEB forums? For the last couple months I have not had time to check the forums except during my lunch break, and that is a brief 10 minutes. After a 9 to 12 hour day (it's been varying unfortunately) I do not like to touch my computer at home. Maybe it is office syndrome. I need a vacation!!!!!!!!

I rarely use either the desktop or laptop when at home; if I do, it's to balance the checkbook, update the website or scan pictures.

I hate to even turn on the computer when I get home, but I can't look at porn while at work.

I'm a "retired" network engineer, working myself into law enforcement. I agree that it pretty much sucks working ON computers all day long, but I think working WITH computers, like Katie mentioned, is alright, outside of work. Farting around with computers is fun, but fixin' em ain't.

I pretty much hate computers, and am rarely using them outside of work.

Not a huge fan of dealing with computers at home after work, but since I MUST maintain a Microsoft OS for work purposes, it seems like I'm constantly maintaining it. In fact, I've got a complete OS and file system rebuild scheduled for this Friday
