How much time does you SO/DH spends on the computer?

 I have a parental control program on my PC that let me monitors everything we do.. I was adding the amount of time my DH spends on the damn thing and I was shocked. So far for this week he has spend 20hrs just playing (watching videos, looking at porn, playing shockwave, etc, etc, etc) on the computer and I'm not that by the time the week is over (Sunday) it would be close to 30 or over 30hrs.

I know someone of you might wonder where does he get the time.. He has a pretty cushion job.. He works nites from 7:30pm until 8am but in between he gets 2 or up to 4hrs break (yes and still gets paid for it) and then is off 3 or 4 days out of the week. I told him that if he was to get paid for the amount of time he spends onf the PC that we would be sitting pretty well ( financially).. He took it as bitching because of a few months now I been asking him to get his ass a second job since we have my mom staying with us and helping out and he has all that free time.

So, back to my original question. How much time does your SO? DH spends on the computer?

If I added up all the time he spends on it in a month I would say about 20 minutes.  He hates sitting.  He is always moving.  He is either working on the house or playing with the girls.  Sometimes I wish he would sit down for a few minutes and watch TV with me.

Actually very little. Maybe 5 minutes a day lol. He does surf the net occassionally when he cant sleep. I would be afraid to see how much time I spend on her though. Way Way Way too much im sure!

I wished mine would spend so little time.. He didn't used to until he got this job 3 years ago..Before he didn't have the time because he was working 60 and 70hrs a week.. I think the schedule have made him lazy.

It just depends on what my husband is looking at. Most of the time he's checking out his car forums, watching cars on youtube or playing some creative game on the comp. If anything, I'm on the comp more than he is.

From the time he gets up in the morning until he goes to bed at night usually.  But, he works on computers for a living.  When he is not working he is still on his computer.  I can tell you that right now there are 6 computers running in this house and probably all of them are online.  When he is not working he is usually playing WOW.

 Well now that our WoW account is cancelled not as much but he still gets on about 2 hours a day to watch TV shows and youtube videos.

It varies because of his job. Sometimes he has job related things he has to do. He tries to get them done when everyone is in bed or busy, so that he isn't taking away from family time. So maybe 10 hours a week. He is almost always on the computer at work.

Less than 1 hour.(a week) He only looks at craigslist or ebay when he needs to buy something.
