    1. About 10 hours
    2. Ultimate Metal, 7string.org, 4chan
    3. I'm doing it right now
    4. Online because it can update frequently
    5. 8, but who really gives a crap? Amounts of friends have nothing to do with your "status".

    1. Well, depends on if you count as just being on my computer while having sites open as being on the net (since I'll always have something open at work) in that case at least 12 hours, otherwise only about 1-2 hours, since I just flick between things at work.
    2. Slashdot, Ultimate Metal & Skylines Australia are the 3 I visit most often atm
    3. Yeah
    4. Online if I do at all, (Slashdot every day though)
    5. 61, though that includes any old addresses and duplicates etc

    1. How much time do you spend on the Internet daily?
    Too much!

    2. What are your favorite 3 websites?
    Google, Wikipedia, nytimes.com

    3. Do you eat at your computer?
    I try to avoid it, usually I drink coffee or something but I generally don't eat at the computer unless I'm working.

    4. Pick one and why - Reading the news online or in a newspaper?
    Online. More accessible, plus it doesn't turn your fingers black.

    5. How many people are on your instant messenger buddy list?
    10 MSN, 88 AIM.

    1. 1 - 2 hours?
    2. The forum, Dinosaur Comics, and Youtube.
    3. All the time! I pretty much live in front of this thing. If it's not surfing the net, it's recording/mixing/practicing/transcribing.
    4. Online. It's more current, and it's easier to find a topic and branch off to learn more.
    5. 287. Only like 50 are ever online... I need to go through and clean out the people I haven't talked to in years.

    3) Yep...

    4) Online, quick, & up to date, nothing to recycle afterwards...

    5. (insert December holiday here) is coming up, what if anything do you want for it?

    1. Selling a Nintendo DS to buy a guitar 2 years ago. OH MAN did I make the smartest move ever. That guitar I bought is gone now, but it did help a lot.
    2. Well, it used to be video games, and now it's music.
    3. The usual turkey dinner...
    4. Not much regarding the time of year, although my band will be recording a full demo FINALLY sometime in December.
    5. For CHRISTMAS, I want a Sound Blaster Audigy 4 Pro sound card, so my own recordings will sound much better.
