What's the most time you've spent on the computer?

Back in the days before the World Wide Web and high speed Internet, it was all dial up with modems. This was back in the early 90's, and there was one summer I spent 23 hours on the computer a day. I swear I even spent probably 24 hours on the computer everyday without sleep.

Yeah, my marks sure dropped during the start of the school year. I was chattin' online, downloading aps, downloading music - not MP3's, and playing online games. Those were the days.

When I mentioned about what I did to people back then, they considered me as a total loser. Well, now, they're doing the same thing what I was doing back then. Well, maybe not 23 hours a day.

I spent like 3 days str8 on the computer once in my days of being like 13-14yrs old (xpt for ya bathroom breaks and grabbing food).

I was a huge nerd, hardcore gamer, was "pro" like CPL/OLA leagues. But I grew up and got cool and there went that hehe

I would spend like 10-15 hours or more trying to connect to the free Internet or other online services. Once connected, I would go crazy or should I say, it was like winning the lottery. Yeah, there was one provider that provided free WWW-Internet and they had only 2 lines. So, like several hundred to thousands of users depending the time of day would dial and redial like non stop. It was hilarious and time consuming. Once connected, you have to log in right away or you'll get disconnected, so I would play games or do some programming while on the computer.

I did 15-17 hours a day at work with minimal breakfast, lunch, dinner, and nature breaks for over two months. Must say, traffic into work and back home was nearly non-existent at those hours.

You don't want to know.. -___-
Age 10-16.. The computer was my life.
Between Starcraft and Dablo II.. omg..
Spent a minimum of 8 hours a day on.. (had school)
Fridays from when I got home till 5 am, wake up around 2pm and get off at around 5 am, then get off at 12 or 1 the next night for school..
Pulling a 40+ hour run on a weekend wasn't uncommon..
During the summers from when I woke up, till I went to sleep. Probably around 17+ hours a day. My parents didn't mind because it kept me out of trouble.
I only got up to use the restroom, or get some food, bring it up stairs and continue playing. I liked chips and frozen guacamole a lot. Would sacrifice a few days if something cool was going down, wasn't really much to do around here though.
Now, maybe around 8 max if I have NOTHING to do.. I mainly read articles and look up random info though. I now hate the indoors and want to be outside a lot of the time.
Still have my perfect vision after all these years as well.. I guess a good 'ol box won't ruin your vision, but if you get a flat screen with the fluorescents shining right into your eyes, you might lose some.

June of last year 16+ hours for 14 straight days at work. Once we were finished with that, the last thing I wanted to see was a computer screen.

I think I spent a good 18-20 hours playing a demo of this game called BF2 when it came out a few summers ago. Then again, it was right after I got back from London so my internal clock was effed up anyways.

Usually about 10-12 hours a day at work...

Longest straight was right at 43 hours, was having auditory hallucinations, as well as visual issues. Was SOCOM work right after we started operations in Afghanistan.

Won't ever do it again, I was ineffective for about 2 days after.
