Hi there! Firstly, let me introduce myself. I’m Andy and I’ve been near-addicted to the Internet for 15 years. I met my wife online and I spend a lot of time at both work and play on the net.
You really don’t want to see me when my broadband connection goes down!
Anyway, while I get into the swing of things here at DailyBits, I thought I’d throw out a question to get you all commenting (so I don’t feel like I’m talking to myself.)
What’s your biggest Internet time waster?
What is it that saps time that you could have better spent being productive on or offline?
Is it one of those pesky Facebook apps? Is it Twitter? WoW? Flash games?
I’ll start. My two current time sinks are Bejeweled Blitz and Scrabble, both on Facebook.
Scrabble is easy — I’ve loved the board game since I was a kid, and now I can play against anyone even when there’s no-one locally who wants a game.
Bejeweled Blitz — well I guess the download figures for the Bejeweled empire speak for themselves when it comes to its popularity, but add the ability to play “just one more one minute game” against your Facebook friends and it has the ability to be extremely addictive.
Honestly, I’m trying to kick the habit.
(PS If anyone has found any decent tactics for playing Bejeweled Blitz as well on a trackpad as when using a mouse, do let me know.)
