ok.. i've been ill today and as a result have spent the last 12 HOURS online, most of it spent in these oh so great forums of social discussion!!
i doubt this is the longest time anyone's spent on HOP (or at least i hope it isn't) and was just wondering if anyone else has acheived such dizzy heights of boredom/ forum based entertainment.....
confused

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

I did it for 14 one summer day when I was cranking on a project and I had to keep waiting for the supercomputer to crunch figures for me. Then I'd do 5 minutes of work and then wait another hour. So if you don't count the 5 minute disruptions...14.

I only have dial-up so i spend about 1-2 hours a day online. Which i thought was quite along time. Obviously i am very wrong!

How can you spend so long on HoP? dont you find that you are just waiting for people to reply and new posts all the time? ubbangel

I think I beat everyone, except Malcolm of course. And that's because I was bug fixing/editing these boards at the time. I also have the old and new HoP boards and the migrated database on my local machine, which is a bit sad really.

yeah, i normally only go on in my hour (on a good day) lunch break, and even then i'm constantly checking for people to post.

sometimes i resort to the chat room though... beerchug

Malcolm will win this one, for obvious reasons.
After my accident when I was fresh out of the hospital and limited to doing nothing...I spent three days straight on HoP, with medicated catnaps in between.

then maybe we could turn it into a competition...

19.5 hours AND COUNTING



I didn't sleep last night so...



Don't you think it should be "continuously"... if it's with sleep in between it doesn't count. tongue sleep once, that's two stints.
