I have Firefox browser, so can put up as many as tabs as I like. maybe 10 or so. On one of them I play flash games while biding my time for any reply back here.

I have several tabs open all the time and bounce around.
I do alot of stuff on Craigslist so I need to stay online and check often.I don't watch much TV because my kids have taken the big screen over.

I watch TV, work on my research, read, cook, wash dishes and snorggle cats! Oh, and I remind Shrek why he married me...always cracking jokes and making fun of commercials.

i very rarely chat online from home, so i'm always multitasking when online at work.

the tv is always on, to make sure we're still on the air, lol. i really should leave it on our network.

but i'm also often running some kind of diagnostic test on a system, or researching passwords and operational documents for some system that's down and i'm waiting for it to be freed up, or occasionally actually repairing something on my workbench/desk.

all in between posting and looking up recipes to fill my virtual stomach.

^^^ At least you're honest!

I'm not on the computer much at home so I'm mostly multi tasking at work. I have 4 or 5 tabs going at a time and spend a good amount of time shopping on Amazon and participating in a couple other online communities. I do actual work sometimes
