What is your internet addiction/obsession?

Other than Facebook, of course.


Mine are certainly Reddit, especially the subs for nail polish and startled cats, as well as Questionable Content.

I also frequent Neopets when I have enough time on my hands and occasionally visit Not Always Right and Post Secret.

Re: What is your internet addiction/obsession?

Right now, reddit, for the crocheting, knitting, and cooking subreddits.

Oh and the pets subreddit too.

Re: What is your internet addiction/obsession?

Twitter is my big one. I love reading/telling jokes there.

I'm debating whether or not I'll get into comiXology as well. I normally only read one-off graphic novels, so I have to weigh the financial burden of starting to read one or two ongoing series. I'm thinking I'll pick up an issue or two of Batwoman and decide from there.

I tried reddit, but never got into it. I tend not to fall into the same obsessions as my friends. They're all big on reddit and WoW, but I never saw the appeal.

What's one of these graphic novels? I have a gift card to Barnes n Nobles. I'm reading The Doomsday Key, on chapter 7 but not enough is happening yet. There's only been 3 grizzly murders and 1 shoot out.

Re: What is your internet addiction/obsession?

I guess most of what I have are collected editions of short series/story arcs and not true graphic novels. On my bookshelf I have Flight vol 3, The Amazing Screw-On Head and Other Curious Objects, BPRD: 1947, a few Tank Girl collections, Saga vol 1 and 2, and Gotham by Gaslight.

But I'm now five issues into Batwoman and I love the writing and artwork so far. Definitely worth it.

Re: What is your internet addiction/obsession?

It's by the same guy who created Hellboy, Mike Mignola. They tried to do an animated series based on it, but only made the pilot. Now it's all on YouTube.

Part One: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_64GdGhuOkU

Re: What is your internet addiction/obsession?

I haven't used IRC since I was 16, which is sad because I used to love it. Even if there was a room I liked visiting, unless I was only using IRC I couldn't pay attention to the conversation long enough to know what anyone was talking about. I can't even use Skype if I'm doing anything else. I'm not a multitasker.

Just download something like Hexchat or mIRC (for Windows) or... uh, well, I don't know what to tell you to download for a Mac but... yeah.

Download and install that.

Then find the Server options menu. Find the Rizon IRC network. If it isn't there, you may add it (server: irc.rizon.net port: 6667). Then connect. Then type /join #AlmostSmart


Yes, I am always connected to IRC. I have a bouncer so even when I disconnect, I'm still there. However, most of the time I am connected to my bouncer and I will eventually see any message addressed to my IRC nick, iasov.

Right now, I'm being in idle mode: [iasov] idle 240:23:01, signon: Sun Jan 19 14:50:53

Yeah, I'm connected to IRC but just not saying anything... still reading shit though. :P
