I thought I might post this cos I will be getting my computer back in 2 days time yay.

What's the longest amount of time that you've been without the net?

Well for me it's basically 2 weeks, my comp "disappeared' 2 weeks ago, actually more than that, it left on boxing day. My uncle is upgrading it to XP, and getting rid of all the junk. Technically I haven't been without the net, cos I'm on my dad's work laptop, but I haven't been able to go to my fave sites cos they are banned on this comp. Can't go on sites that have games or chat or anything like that on em. It has been horror for me, lol almost suffering withdrawal symptoms hehe. At least I will be able to talk to all of my friends again soon, miss em a lot <3
(sorry about this long message, I tend to ramble hehe)

Apart from the two ocassions in which I've took like 3/4 week breaks from posting on TPM, the longest I've been away when still currently active has been 2 weeks, when I went on holiday to Cyprus and to Spain :)

The longest I've been off the net was 8 days. This was back when I went to Disney World a few years ago.

I've spent around a month off at one occasion, when I had computer problems, and then internet troubles as soon as the computer got working again. I've also been on holiday for two 1/2 weeks on a couple of occasions. Plus I often take a couple of days off (especially recently). Don't use the net half as much as I used to.

Hmmmm.... The longest I've been off the net, was from the day I was born, to the day I discovered it.

Lol... seriously..... I have no idea, ^that's the correct answer though.

Oh, I think almost 2 weeks when the family went to Europe for a vacation. I went almost crazy not being able to get on and do stuff. If not that, probably when I went to camp some time. Very few have computers, much less the privilege of letting campers onto them

The longest time was probably 4 days I think...
