One computer? I didn't know that was even legal?

In our office we each have a computer, plus we have the laptop which we can use in the kitchen or livingroom on the wireless (or take with us wherever we go), DH has his blackberry-like device which is his go everywhere computer. In the bedroom we have a computer which is strictly for taping and watching TV (yes, a computer), plus our server from our business days which we still house a few websites on, plus two others which I am not sure if they are hooked up or not at the present moment!

Oh, yeah, and our border has a computer of his own in his room too!

DW decided to make dinner tonight, so she told me to get out of the kitchen and go play on the computer!

Interestingly, Buck and I never did that. We usually watched the late night news, one of the following talk shows and then hit the sack. Our biggest "interrupter" was whatever book each of us was reading before lights out time.

It's the same in this house. I'm also a night owl but I'm not the one making the $$$$. I also have a laptop so you can find me any where in the house or on the patio (when it's warm). Ds uses the desktop in the family room and dh is upstairs in the office. We're scattered every where. lol

well, dumdumdumdum, imagine a banjo playing in the background north of the woods off a lake and for added ambience a few log cabins with smoke coming out of the chimneys............that's my hubby and I on the weekends.........he's on his laptop "banjo" and I'm on mine and it's a mutual "sharing" of the internet time ................we are used to the slowing of the time................though if he has some important business to attend to I send him to the office which is about 8 buildings down.....yep, dumdumdumdum...................
