Post site addiction

Guys/gals, I think I'm starting to have a problem. I'm addicted to this site. I bought a computer to cruise the web and see all the cool (exlpore) stuff that's out there and all I want to do is come back here. I pay for the internet every month and when I go out to look for DeSoto parts or view other sites I wonder what I'm missing back here at home. So back I come to see WHASSUP! Before I even find what I'm looking for. Can anyone help me. Jeeze I'm getting pathetic. Is there life after hotrodders.com?

I have the same problem. Even if I'm on the computer doing other things, I still have that extra browser window open so I can switch over every so often, hit refresh and see what's new on the board. I think the wife is getting pissed, because she can't get onto the computer anymore. Whenever she walks in, I have to switch back to something work related.

Cool

No problem 38special! The truth is there is NO life after hotrodder.com! I check this site first thing in the morning and in the evening before I crash for the night. Once addicted your stuck, soon to become a drooling unkept rod freek! Eat, sleep and do nothing but hotrod.com. Its your fate, accept it and live with it. Gotta go now and check the engine thread for anything new, its been 5min.

A year ago this time I had only few hours of internet time.I didn't lie it I hated computers and used it only as a tool to get info and that was it.I used it about 2times a month for maybe a total of 1hr.
Well wile searching for Monte carlo parts and wanting info on emmissions laws I found <a href="http://www.hotrodders.com" target="_blank">www.hotrodders.com</a> Well 1200+ posts latter I'm still here.I allways loved to read the tech questions in the Hotrod mags and summit catologs(proffesor overdrive).Now I get it 24/7 and can evan answer some too.
Ya see Jon isn't actually a Hotrodder he's secretly doing a study on addictive mentalitys and were all the subjects.Right now a group in Harvard is reveiwing all of us. <img src="graemlins/mwink.gif" border="0" alt="[mwink]" />

Crazy Larry, What is LVN under your occupation?
2- Many toyz, I've heard rumors of other sites but am afraid to go where street rodders have never gone before.
Motopsycho, go to bed you need a long winters nap!
As far as the rest of you... Same site different night. Here we are once again!
