Between 2 to 2 and a half hours, only after 7 pm and leave before 10pm. On GR about an hour, need the interaction. ;-)

far too long on many days!!!

On the worse days ...............

I turn on the computer at about 11 am

it's on for 3 or 4 hours, then off for about 1 -2 hours between 2:30 - 4pm

On again until about 5:45 pm

Off for 2 hours

Then on from about 7:30 pm until somewhere between 11 pm and 1 am

I make that around 10 hours or so a day

Of that ...................... maybe 6 hours on GR, spread through the day .............. some days very little time on GR because I'm on other sites, or working on my tree.

most of my time on GR is actually spent helping on Find Ancestors or Genealogy Chat, plus the 4 or 5 threads that I usually post on.

I'll spend, usually, about 1-2 hours looking at threads on General, but don't open most of them and post on even fewer.

Other days ................. I will not switch the computer on until about 4 pm or later.

Plus, we usually do not take the laptop with us, or otherwise access the internet, when we go away.

OH and I are considered dinosaurs (by daughter) .......... we do not have a cell phone (mobile), and have no intention of getting one!
