    destroyed my damn computer?

    has anyone ever thought of getting rid of their computer and "simplifying" there lives?

    im seriously contemplating doing this...kinda like a feng shui thing, plus my chi is all screwed up because my karma ran over my dogma...

    just trying to really simplify things...any thoughts?

    You'll need to get rid of the camera, tv and junk food and grow your own organic garden. Is that what you want?

    Plus, you entertain me. I can't lose that! Do you want to make me miserable in this way!?

    What? You got admin here and now you want to leave?!?

    Seriously, do what you've got to do but this seems so drastic! Why not take baby steps, set a limit for how much time you can spend online.

    Yeah, I've thought about that too before, Matt. But pretty much all of my friends are online, so then I'd just be a lonely loser (except the bf). But sometimes it is just nice to ignore it and just read a book or talk a walk and get back to simpler times. Maybe you just need a break. Take a week or two off and say, I'm not touching the computer for that time, to reconnect with the other things in life. Then maybe you can come back with a fresh perspective.

    You have our support in whatever you do. But of course we would miss you terribly. :hug:

    So what's the problem with your 'puter Matt?
    It's obviously working to some degree because you're posting.
    Come on now, tell us all your problems and Chase will fix them, right Chase?

    So why don't you have simple problems?
    I assume you've done a complete virus scan (you do keep your virus definitions updated?) and a re-boot and it's still the same huh?
    It sounds as though there's some program running in the background but it could be just about anything.
    Any other clues as to what's happening?
