    Default Poll: What else do you do online?

    Simply put, what else do you do regularly when you're online besides here (not that I'm assuming you're here regularly)?

    Me, I just go on FFshrine and IMDB forums (actually around a certain one board) and that's about it.

    Other than that I chat on AIM, but even that I do barely anymore.
    In 20 years, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook will merge together into one super big time-wasting site called YouTwitFace.

    We're not going to Guam... are we?

    My online time is spent as follows:

    1. Sign on to AIM, MSN, and Skype, because I'm horribly lonely.
    2. Put a Youtube window in the background so I have some music or background noise to entertain me.
    3. Check out TPM.
    4. Check out dA.
    5. Check out GameFAQs.
    6. Check out Youtube.
    7. Check out Axelstripe's forum.
    8. Log off, repeat any of the aforementioned steps, or if I'm feeling really active (snicker), fiddle with my game on MMF2.

    I go to some Finnish forums, too. They are

    Haapaveden lukion foorumi (my former school)
    Mocha (a forum related to Japanese culture and language)
    Mirai Tsuki (a twisted Sailor Moon forum)

    Quite dead all of them, I've been waiting for some replies for years

    For a while, I went to a Swedish anime forum called but not too much now.

    I am also waiting for a Finnish videogame shop named Gameparadise to open its forums and try them.

    I also study Japanese and a little Chinese via web dictionaries.

    Well, there's the usual signing on to AIM/msn, then check outlook for any TPM business, then hotmail, then on goes winamp. After that, I check here, livejournal, a Japanese music site called music_and_more, my webcomics, facebook, Greenplastic Radiohead and Aarinfantasy for my yaoi. Oh, my uni emails too.

    this is hell
    we have a little something called integrity

    Well, I have two Yahoo email accounts and a school account; Xanga, Myspace, and Facebook make up my first round. Then, after Wikipedia and UESPwiki (one about The Elder Scrolls video game series), I check a local paper's website and my webcomics (8 Bit Theater, Ctrl+Alt+Del, xkcd, Dr. McNinja, Perry Bible Fellowship, VG Cats, Girly, Girl Genius, Questionable Content, and Filibuster) then come here before calling it a day.

    I ignore my email, bitch on LJ, and muck about on OKCupid. Sometimes I'll check my Myspace, and, on occasion, Facebook. Facebook takes too long to load here at home, though.

    *Sign into MSN
    *Begin lurking a forum
    *YouTube or some other video site
    *Webcomics (some of which I haven't checked in some time)
    *4chan/420chan, whatever's running and good at the time
    *Advanced Anime and Photobucket once in a good while
    *E-mail inboxes
    *Wikipedia for random topics (there's a game we play on one forum, trying to connect two unrelated subjects in as few links as possible)

    Not necessarily in that order, and occasionally repeated.

    I manage my own website, play MMORPGs, chat with other people now and then and browse different news(paper) websites to see what's going on in the world. I also browse wikipedia often, particulary for info on old video games. Nothing beats some nostalgia.

    I come here first to find if there is anything interesting, then head to my book marked sites--Livejournal (though I haven't written anything in several weeks ), watch anime via the computer, jump to Yahoo and check my e-mails and read the comics, read my friends MySpace page, go to Adult Swim forums, check the community college website, check the local news websites, and read Yahoo! news--in Italian
    Just a Twitter slut and a Tumblr whore.

    Generally my first stops will be Myspace and Facebook, the former to see if anyone reads my blog, (short answer, they don't) and the latter to see what useless applications I've been invited to try. I'm still yet to join in a gang war, but that doesn't stop anyone from trying! Then I'll hit to hear about which of my favourite players has gotten injured or in trouble with the law (as they always seem to do) then jump onto their forums to see what people think on this, that and the other. Most of the time then I'll go to TPM, hoping for some sort of really random declaration that generates interest (like someone coming out. If someone could do that it'd sure help), then I just sorta trail off. Sometimes I go to N-Sider and then their forums, but after Mario Kart and Smash Bros got released all discussion there just kinda died (it'll probably start to heat back up with Animal Crossing round the bend).
    If I get through all of this, and sometimes beforehand anyhow, I'll hit Warcraft. And then I'm gone for a couple hours, because nothing's more amusing than hitting a gnome with a stick.

    Hmm, well, I usually check my e-mail at Yahoo! (and occasionally Hotmail too), and go onto Facebook to check if anything is new, after that, I usually go to Super Mario World Central (a site about hacking Super Mario World for SNES, SMWCentral for short) to check out anything new and useful for my SMW hack (occasionally downloading custom blocks, custom sprites, patches, etc. for my hack, in order to get closer to my goal of finishing it), I usually go back to Yahoo! to check news stories and sports.

    From there I go to YouTube to look for new videos of interest, and often to Serebii's site and Psypokes for all my Pokemon needs outside of TPM, which make up the most common areas I am usually found.

    Hmm...well, I'll usually check the e-mail, go on facebook/myspace and see what's changed, maybe play some video games (i.e. world of warcraft, online poker, etc.), browse, or download some pokemon episodes.
