    Curious where everybody spends their time online and why. It can tell you a lot about a person's personality.

    Even though I've been a member here for a while, I'm not really that active on these boards. I love Macs, (mostly OS X) so that explains my presence here, but most of my time is spent on overclockers.com and tonymacx86.com. It shows that I'm passionate about performance computing and love to give back to the hackintosh community that has given me so much.

    Another spot would be head-fi.org as I'm quite an audiophile. :D Very expensive habit indeed.

    So let's here it, what forums get graced by your presence the most?

    Other than here I frequent the following places:

    www.mac-forums.com - obvious :)

    www.flame-wars.co.uk/forum - My own forum for having a laugh with friends, although anyone is free to sign up for a bit of banter and to freely discuss any topic that they want without persecution - It also hosts a PS3 repo as well for Homebrew etc

    www.x-realm.co.uk/forum - new forum that looks like it might cater for a little bit of everything

    www.datacave.co.uk - ModShack reborn

    www.nzbshack.com - NZB files for newsgroups

    That's the biggest Finnish computer/technology forum. I can't say I frequent it but I visit it by time to time and make a few posts here and there. That's where I go if I need to ask something about PCs.

    http://hopeinenomena.net/index.php

    That's a Finnish equivalent to MacRumors. Not a big fan of it but I go there occasionally to see if there is anything interesting. It's a lot quieter so I prefer MR which keeps me interested all the time. They are also more like a regular guys who know next to nothing about computers.

    To be honest, MR is the only forum I frequent. Judging by my post count, one could say I spend quite a lot time in here, which is true.

    I belong to a forum only rich people know about Svenborgia :D

    Serious... I used to belong to several, including a Cadillac Owners forums, but have little use for them now and haven't been any others in ages. I used to be much more active online than I am now.

    macrumors
    macnn - I used go here but the place is dying, not a fun forum by any stretch anymore. Kind of sad to see something whither on the vine.
    dpreview - a photography size
    macworld
    macosxhints
    realmacsoftware - rapidweaver support site
    androidcommunity.com
    androidcentral
    appleinsider


    The list may be a bit long, but I don't go to them regularly. I'll go to dpreview when I have questions regarding photography, or realmacsoftware when I'm working with rapidweaver. I tend to stick with macrumors.

    Corner-Carvers <--- a site where tech rules regardless of the topic
    SDOT <--- not an easy place to get into
    Bo-Port <--- a forum for Ford 2.3L performance engine
    TurboFord <--- A site for the above engines but in turbocharged form

    A have probably 15-20 other that I visit on occasion(including MR), but those are the ones I visit daily.

    Amazing guys, keep them comin'. I'm surprised by the wide assortment of topics the forums you guys visit. I'm discovering lots of interesting places and most I've never heard of before.

    This is the only forum anymore, however, but I like to visit sites about math/science, history, education, weather, tv shows, shopping/product reviews, music, wikipedia, bbc, sports sites, and of course Google.

    A fun, somewhat related site I go to is www.apple-history.com
