    I've tried to leave temporarily but I always come back within a day or two. There are days that I'm so busy that I don't check ... but first time I sit at the computer I start at MR! I once tried to give it up for lent, that lasted 2 days!

    oh well, I'm addicted. How about you?

    It's not. The only thing that keeps me away is a physical lack of computer or internet connection. :eek:

    I actually left for a couple years and only recently returned. Some people might have liked it to remain that way :p

    It's all a state of mind. I tell myself I'm not here and that I've quit and it's all okay.

    I tried, these plastic replacement hands are working out quite nice right now. :p


    Other than that, I can go away on vacations, never using a computer once for at least two weeks, but the instant I get back, MacRumors is first on my to-do list.

    I can't help myself. :)

    I've never purposely tried to quit, but it basically turns out that way during the school year. I sometimes go a month without making a single post.

    If it's worth anything, I've been a member for 34 months.
    I averaged 1 post/day for 33 months.
    In the last month since school is out, it's gone up to 1.23 posts/day.
    It's not a huge increase, but considering I've been around for so many days, I know I've been posting too much.

    I also really don't think the above paragraph makes any sense.:eek:

    In these situations I never know whether to congratulate or commiserate.

    Now, now. D Nile is a large river with room enough for all of us to swim in it.

    Yes, but now I don't know whether to congratulate myself or commiserate. :p
