    my mom was watching oprah today and called me to watch one of the segments

    the show was about balance and giving up things you're addicted to... a woman was forcing her husband to give up his macs for a whole week!!!

    he had a tibook (named of course), an iMac g3 and a cube (he might have others but i can't remember)

    anyways... do your significant other(s) ever force you to give up your technology? i know my parents are... they took away my rights to the g4 for awhile... i'm on an old powerbook for awhile :(

    Dear God, that's sad! I wonder if the people watching Oprah think we're freaks now or something. :(

    my girlfriend once got offended when she was playing around like she was gonna knock my TiBook over with her foot and I jumped on her and said to "be careful of the computer!"

    other than that....no...

    but it is fun when your significant other tempts u with an apple to step away from the box...he he he ;) :D :p :) :cool: :eek:

    edit: oh...and no pun intended on that last comment...he he he...

    one more thing to ad...my girlfriend (as well as a few of my close friends) thinks I'm addicted to macrumors...I don't know what she or they would think that?! :rolleyes:

    my fiancee's already said that my tibook's going away for the week when she comes to see me in germany :D Apparently it'll only be switched on whilst i'm out for the day, so she can watch dvd's and divx's! The cheek of it :p

    Apart from that, i don't exactly have an intravenous drip from my computer, so can leave it along for a few hours here an there... until i get curious about what's happening on macrumors that is :D

    Not you, most likely. It be hard to verify, but certainly you could try not to post for a week. I'd have a problem with that too.

    Maybe the week after WWDC?

    Anyone willing to try? How about a wager?

    I'm out of town this weekend, so I'll probably only have a handful of posts, most likely most on Sunday evening.

    But what's the big deal about 1000? I don't get anything special - that I know of. I guess I'll be the 5th or 6th person to get that many posts, but its not like its all that special.

    500 was more interesting because then I could get an avatar. That was worth scouring the boards for threads to comment on. I try to at least say something worth while on all my posts, although I have had one or two one liners when the banter got a little heavy.:D

    You think anything is going to happen when you reach 2000?

    yeah...I guess nothing too spectacular about 1000....just that u are over 1000 I suppose...I sorta got into the habit of congratulating people for their marks...

    as for 2000...I guess I'll be the first to reach 2000 posts....no cigar I feel though ;) :rolleyes:

    Correction

    Willy Wonka just turned over in his grave...well at least now he is facing upwards. The correct quote would be "Strike that, reverse it"

    I see

    Indeed. I apologize. I'm one of those people that just assumes everyone is talking in movie quotes, probably because I do...except now.
