What do you actually do with your computer?
You've got several hours of free time which you have to spend on your computer. What sort of activites are you most likely to be doing? Be specific - giving particular websites or games is better than just "browsing the internet and playing games".

I visit my usual sites, which is mostly becoming here now. Use Facebook a bit. Write. Do some graphics. Read emails. Sometimes play games like Oblivion (computer is too old to run Skyrim).

I also do some work that's been assigned to me when I can. And host a Survivor game, but that's ending in a month or so. Thank goodness - I'm ready to be done after two years.

Check out YouTube for a bit, see some videos. Usually I just end up browsing on there looking at random crap. Suddenly three hours has gone by. If I am not doing that or school work, then I am probably playing a game. Usually an older one, like any of the Pokemons, or recently I played Yu-Gi-Oh! Forbidden Memories. It was hard as hell so it took me forever to beat it.

Dreg October 11th, 2012 12:17 PM

Probably I would be browsing on Youtube - looking at different sorts of videos, or perhaps themetapicture - seeing what new funny and interesting pictures are up.

I would also play games from the 80's/90's while I was on... just anything and everything that I have.

Poke Fox October 11th, 2012 1:31 PM

First I would go to Simtropolis or SC4D and find out whats new to download, then I'd spend the remainder of the time playing Sim City 4, if not, then I'd be watching cartoons (either Pokemon, Penguins of Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness), or comedy movies (Scary Movie 1-4, Jackass 1-3.5, Born in East LA, Up in Smoke, Shrimp on the Barbie - I'm a fan of Cheech Marin)

Well the majority of my computer time goes to online homework or papers, so I wouldn't call that free time. With my actual free time I spend a lot of it on YouTube watching music videos. I do the social networking, but not to an extreme degree. And anytime I'm not watching a video, Pandora's on in the background.

Edward Elric October 11th, 2012 1:51 PM

Whenever I have some free time that I use the computer for, I go on Facebook, Twitter, Pokecommunity, and sometimes Youtube to play a song while I do the other stuff!

White_Arcanine October 11th, 2012 3:10 PM

Short and simple. Log on. Check PC and another site, open Media Player and listen to music, and talk to my friends over Skype/MSN/whatever then log off at 10-11 PM.

CourageHound October 11th, 2012 3:21 PM

Meh. I tend to do randomly search the net in my free time. Ya know searching random sites of interest. Other than that i spend time checking sites of interest such as u-tube, deviant art, newgrounds, PC, bulbapedia articles, PokemonOnline, etc. I'm stuck with a crappy CPU for now soooo, i cant play Maplestory for now :( . Speaking of bulbapedia articles, an interesting coloum this person seems to be writing is called: On the Origin of Species. He researches and explains the origins of pokemon species and their creation and inspiration of certain pokemon. Its a nice read for anyone that hasnt already seen it.

TwilightBlade October 11th, 2012 8:40 PM

My first priority is checking all of Imgur, haha. Uhh... I also make several trips to Bulbapedia, Serebii, Ps3 trophies, some Sonic sites, Youtube, Pandora Radio, school websites, etc. I sometimes check on my Twitter and Deviantart accounts. When I'm mega bored, I go on Yahoo Answers. Somewhere during my free time I'll look at a cute picture of a puppy or kitten.

Outside of the internet... I use Photoshop and iTunes. Yeah, I'd die without the internet.

droomph October 11th, 2012 9:11 PM

I tend to stick around to PC, YouTube, and some other forums.

I also tend to scribble on my drawing pad so that's something else.

Brendino October 11th, 2012 10:44 PM

Usually when I'm on the computer, I'm only half paying attention to things (might be watching TV or something while browsing). Typically, though, I'll leave my e-mail and Twitter open in two tabs, and then browse sites like PC, or a couple other sports forums I visit.

I also like playing some games on my Sega emulator and doing random things in Paint and Photoshop, but other than that, I don't do much on the computer.

Noah Ridgewood October 12th, 2012 2:29 AM

Lots of Twitter, PokéCommunity, Youtube, iTunes, entertainment updates in music and the TV shows that I follow from various websites, Bulbapedia, occasional World of Warcraft, instant messaging, and Facebook.

Hannah October 12th, 2012 4:03 AM

When I'm really bored, I go to 9Gag. It's hilarious, and it makes my day complete. I also chat with my buds on Facebook, Twitter, and I visit my Tumblr blog sometimes. I go to YouTube to watch some Adventure Time eps, too. Yeah, and Facebook. And Facebook.

curiousnathan October 12th, 2012 4:07 AM

I usually use my computer for assignments and school work as well as the internet of course. On the net I'm most often found browsing Bulbapedia, Serebii, Facebook, occasionaly Twitter, Youtube, Tumblr and Reddit. Although I browse reddit more on my ipod than on my desktop. Aside from the interenet I'm also a mad fan of Minecraft, The Sims and Diablo III so I'm usually spotted playing them.

何贤豪 October 12th, 2012 4:54 AM

I'd only use it to open up this very forum, listen to some music, and maybe do a few updates around. I rarely watch videos, even though I have a lot of them. I also rarely put in images down to the computer from my DSi XL. Pretty much that's it. Haven't gotten anything else.

Katamari October 12th, 2012 4:58 AM

Tumblr/Twitter are super common, forums, browse Amazon for a bit, Pinterest, and if I get really bored I'll organize my docs/pics/crap.

Oh, and Sims 3. Lots of Sims 3.

Liliana Vess October 12th, 2012 10:06 AM

It depends on what sort of mood I'm in, if I'm in a lazy sort of mood I'll probably read a few threads on here, post a little here and OVP if I have time and then I'd go doss around on reddit for a bit. If I'm in a more productive mood I'll either illustrate something on inkscape or I'll start playing minecraft.

Kura October 12th, 2012 10:19 AM

Skype, MSN, PC, FB, email, maybe other random sites.
Photoshop, and very rarely I will open up Maya, or another Adobe video editing package. Occasionally gaming- portal 2 prob.

Shdwj October 12th, 2012 3:51 PM

When I'm not wasting time on the internet (which I'm not promoting by the way; forum pages sure like being refreshed and reloaded): Photoshop CS5, Minecraft, iTunes, and as of recently Paint Tool Sai.

Shiny Celebi October 14th, 2012 3:56 PM

I browse on Bulbagarden, PC and chat with friends on Skype. I often have Bulbapedia or Serebii open for help with a Pokemon game Im playing while I browse. I also use Pokemon Global Link when I feel like it. I occasionally also watch something on YouTube or listen to music on iTunes or YouTube, that's about it though, my computer is mostly a vehicle to use the internet.

TheLeetCasualGamer October 14th, 2012 4:34 PM

Draw stuff, work on videos, hang around PC, YouTube, or DA

Nomine October 14th, 2012 8:23 PM

I'd probably be browsing YouTube... (is that surprising, aha?) I don't really go on social sites anymore, like Facebook, but I tend to log on to by Twitter sometimes. By sometimes, I mean rarely. If I'm not looking at YouTube videos, I would be on other forums checking out electronics like phones. xD Either that, or I'd be using Microsoft Word to type up all those essays for school!

ARTPOP October 14th, 2012 9:25 PM

Twitter, Tumblr, gamefaqs, and occasionally YouTube.
I Skype chat too, but I have been at my computer for a while. Mostly on the iPad and 3ds now

Wobbachomp October 15th, 2012 7:09 AM

Skype, a ton of gaming-related forums like PC, YouTube, Gmail, Twitter, Pokemon Showdown, Pokemon Online
