    I am addicted to changing things on my computer. Despite having a TON of work to do, i can't stop messing with my computers, first it was just the Desktop background, then it was a screen savers. I've gone so far as to modify my iStat menu icons so they're blended in with my regular tool-bar icons.

    Now I'm addicted to GeekTool, I can't stop playing with the color of the text making sure that my desktop clock is perfectly matched with the color of my background pictures.

    I might rearrange my Dock icons, later...after ice cream.

    I AM AN ADDICT!

    As a highly trained psychologist and an addiction specialist I have the following suggestion:

    DON'T DO THAT ANY MORE!!

    My bill is in the mail. :rolleyes::D:D

    Hah, that would have been me in 1998. I used to constantly be changing things. I remember installing (on Windows 95) installing a lavalamp taskbar animation. All my friends used to have floppy disks full of icons, screensavers and maps for Duke Nukem 3D that we'd pass around too.

    Now I really don't care! I've got a desktop image on OSX and a colour scheme on Win7. No screensavers - but the display goes off after 5 minutes.

    This makes me want to put an Android phone in his hands.

    But then his family wouldn't see him for weeks...

    I have suffered from this malady for a life-time, but I call it procrastination.

    If there could be a more annoying addition to buzzspeak than appending every statement with "just sayin", this is it.

    OP I suggest cooling down with some cannabis, it should straighten your problem out for a few hours.

    I read about a cure somewhere. I'll post the URL later.
    After ice cream... and rearranging Dock icons.
    Well, maybe.

    Correct! :)

    If that doesn't distract OP from his computer, the problem is larger (!) than "addiction" to his computer. :D ;)
