    We finally got the laptop finally on a wireless router and now I no longer have to share the desktop! I have literally spent HOURS on this board today happily uninterrupted. So much for quilting today, well maybe tomorrow...if only I limit my time here! I always felt guilty for hogging the computer - hehe no more! Do you share your computer time with others?

    Yes, we take turns on the wireless laptop. I have an older desktop computer upstairs in my sewing room which only gets used to play music while I'm sewing. Sometimes DH and I fight over getting online to check the message boards we like but we can usually manage to share ;)

    We share, but he's a TV and sports watcher so it usually works out fine.

    We are a "His and Hers" couple. He has his laptop and I have a laptop plus a desktop. Both of my sons are I.T. tecs and I am a Computer Media Specialist so we are in good shape around here.

    Ours will be working now, bf loves to read books online, and that can be hours! Or watching back episodes of his favorite shows. He insists he doesn't want a kindle or nook, computer works fine (so he thinks!)

    I have to share with everyone in the house. Good thing that I'm the boss and can kick off anyone I want. It's my computer...hahaha. Most the time, I do share though.
