  2. I love this cartoon, that's completely what I do. But then after about half an hour I really enjoy it until about 3 hours later when I start panicking again.

  3. Don't need a test to know that I am addicted. Google 'disconnection anxiety' and see the extent of the problem

  4. I actually don't mind if the internet is down - except when it's interrupting business or work. It's a nice quiet time. I even kinda like it when we have no electricity - except for the fact that I can't cook then. But I love no tv, no radio, no internet.

  5. 54% addicted. Not too bad. I'll have to work toward 100!

  7. Hi, my name is Sass...

    And I'm an addict.

    To see my other current addictions, as tagged by you, check out my post today.

    Like that little segue there? See how I did that? ;)

  8. Came from Sass' page! I actually had this cartoon situation last night (and last week, and three weeks ago, and 5 times since January)! My wireless router is for crap.

  9. Have you seen the South Park episode where the internet is down? Stan's family travels to California in search of some internet and they stay in an internet refugee camp...heehee.

  10. Apparently I'm 63% addicted and they say...

    "In your opinion, life without the internet is hardly worth living. Could be, but you probably need a bit more fresh air and sunshine to think clearly"

    ...about me -- Let me confirm. I'm addicted :)

  13. I have been without internet for almost a month. Today I got connected. But it's not just any connection, it's 100MB fibre obtic internet connection.
    I am ashamed to admit this makes me feel quite funny in my pants.

  14. Definitely addicted. I remember when my son was in New Zealand for 6 months and we would talk on Skype once a week. God help you if you were anywhere near me if the connection was lost!

  15. I'm not even going to bother following the links... I'm addicted and have no intention of recovering ;-)

  16. "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."

  17. I don't need a survey to know how addicted I am... Yes - I freak. Totally.

  18. My scores were 42 and 46. Not (too) bad! I get more upset when the computer is slow than when it's completely down. Go figure.
