    I really hate the weeks surrounding major PDA releases. I spend more time on these %$$##@! boards than I spend in my own skin.

    Somebody tie me down....

    HAHA!!!! I know the feeling. I find myself checking the board every 5 minutes rather than my normal hourly check of new posts just because of the the whole "traditional organizer" bit Dubinsky threw at us. The only other time i remember being this fervent about the boards were about the false rumors of a Prism II in June/July and later pre-Neo/Pro announcements.

    Hi, I'm Teri, and I'm a PDAholic.

    I try to avoid these message boards but my browser is set on auto pilot. It drags me kicking and screaming to this site and I spend far too much time reading the posts. I linger in the background...rarely posting...because frankly, I don't have much to say. (Mostly because I am so giddy from the information I obtain here, I'm afraid I would stutter and slur.)

    Where was that 12 step program? Didn't I read about it here once? Someone save me...

    If at first you don't succeed....hide all evidence that you tried...

    aw, c'mon, you're only the #5 top poster.
    MarkEagle is due for an intervention. He's got a serious problem. Major postage abuse.
    d'ya suppose the Betty Ford clinic would be able to help him?

    [babble]It started so innocently. I had a Pilot Professional for 2 years, and didn't even know Palm had a website. I'm now on my 3rd handheld in less than 18 mos, and planning on a fourth by June. I am registered on at least 7 different boards that constantly "ping, ping, ping" my e-mailbox. I can barely remember how to drive home every day, but surfing these boards I'm somehow able to think in five-dimensional space. [/babble]

    The palmaholic's world, compare and contrast:

    The American Dream:
    Own your own home
    Palmaholic's Dream:
    AvantGo and Datebk4 against a "Paper White" display.

    Current Events:
    Is Islam really a benevolent religion?
    Palmaholic's Events:
    Is Sony really a benevolent licensee?

    Public outrage:
    Gary Condit
    Palmaholic Outrage:
    Carl Yankowski

    Soccer Mom:
    "Do your homework Billy, and I'll drive you to McDonalds!"
    Palmaholic Uncle:
    "Touch my CLIE kid, and I'll send you home in the case!!"

    But look at their posts per day. MarkEagle has 3.79 posts/day while dietrichbohn has 4.31 posts/day. To be the #5 top poster and be a member for less than a year really shows that he has a problem. MarkEagle at least has an excuse for his high numbers, he is a moderator.

    Actually, under my definition, the one in most need for intervention is ****-richardson, with 4.66 posts/day. I, however, am #68 and have only 1.65 posts/day. I don't have an addiction. I don't have a problem. Do I?

    Depends. How many times have you taken your PDA with you and forgotten your WALLET? Feel free to pull up a couch....

    That happens lots of times. The worst day @ school this year was the day I forgot my VPL on the kitchen table. I felt naked. I felt dumb. I couldn't function. I couldn't find out what happend on this day in 1615.

    A traumatic experience to be sure, but if the alarm goes off on your DateBook and no one is there to hear it, are you really late?

    You should write a Palm addicts guide to philosophy But it was a tramatic event. I have come to depend on my Visor. In fact, I no longer remember things I need to do. I just look at my palm to remember. This leaves room for other stuff. For example, today I got a crash course in quantum mechanics and standard model. Of course, all my notes are in my Palm. Thats not obsessed. Finally, I only keep one window open at all time with Visorcentral discussions in it.

    It's not about quantity, it's quality!

    Actually, I'd guess that less than 10% of my posts are official moderator posts. My problem is that this site is so addictive... I start getting jittery if I haven't checked out the forums in more than an hour... ok, more like 5 minutes!

    Okay, Okay! I got a crash course in quantum mechanics today and the test is next week. The test will consist of solving schroeder's equation. AND I can' t use my VPL.

    I understand that. But as a moderator, you a least have an excuse for being on Visorcentral all the time. And in that time, posting messages.
