Does anyone else sit at their computer 6 hours a day and keep refreshing their ad stats? Or is it just me?

Bryan,

I do the same thing! I hate to admit it but it's true. And by the way, I think superstats.com is the greatest stat program they could have ever invented.

...Time to go refresh! :-)

Haha, I do the same thing, but not too much. Most of my important stuff updates every 24 hours. I try to do constructive stuff, but usually just end up ******** around and doing nothing important...hehe.

Alright I don't check my stats 50 times a day. Only about 5 or 10. But what I do is read this board and a few others constantly. I probably hit this board atleast 10 times a day. Just need more people to post more stuff more often to keep my little lights on the main page yellow.
Give me more to comment on!

1. There are actually not 400, but over 1,000 members of this BBS

2. I have found sitemeter.com a good stats program to watch for a few hours per day. Recently you get the added excitement of the occassional server error when you update. :-) :-)

3. Yes I have a girlfriend. She does not like my computer at all

Some days I spent about 12 hours at the computer and my girlfriend complaints about it. But since PC makes me big money which I spent on flowers, presents, restraunts for her she doesn't mind about my job.

I suppose it depends how you break net use down into productive/unproductive time. I spend up to 18 hours a day online (though an average would be 12) but most of that is spent catching up on news, tracking company developments, building and modifying sites and working on our still-under-wraps internet startup. I guess I check my ad stats 2-3 times a day, maximum... the excitement kind of wore off now that my traffic has been stable at 25K-30K pageviews per month since early spring. I don't anticipate it's going to go much higher, and I also don't expect any dramatic drops.

I am married, for those who are counting the other part of this thread.

WOW! http://geekvillage.com/ubb/eek.gif Who stay up all night and keep refreshing this BB?
I don't have a girlfriend, because I stay home all day and just sit in front of the computer. Instead of going out and flearding with girls. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/frown.gif

And I still wonder, If in this world there are more boys than girls?

I think that I started a post several months back about stat checking. I was checking 3-4 times a day for all my sites back then. Now, I usually go 2 weeks with out looking at stats. I think it's something that wears off over time.

I just started dating a lovely girl who believes computers are pure evil. Worried about the relationship already!

I agree with you, it does take 400 male webmasters (on this board) to equal 1 female webmaster. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

And of course, visiting this board which is great. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

steve you should add on a geek personals section to this site, after all, what good is a village without baby villagers? Here's my ad:

Hi, my name is Joe, i'm a talented 16 year old webmaster. I enjoy long walks on the beaches and candle light dinners, I also have more money then I know what to do with. I once threw a snowball at a girl who said my head was mis-shaped but other then that I have a rather unviolent past. All that I ask in a fine young lady is that they have the ability to cook, clean, and take care of children. A devious chain-smoker hacker chick that has the ability to penetrate virtually any UNIX and or NT system on the internet would be satisfactory as well.

Boy oh boy ! This thread might very well reach 100 by the weekend !!! http://geekvillage.com/ubb/wink.gif

Well, personally, I do spend a substantial amount of time online monitoring my website, my stocks and tech news. My phone line is pretty much tied up the entire evening as soon as I get home from work. There are so much that needs to be done ..... e-mails, online classes that I'm enrolled in, software testing and etc. Anyway, to say that webmasters/webmistress do not have a life is kinda' extreme. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif I do not consider going out cruising around aimlessly as being very exciting anyhow. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/wink.gif So, might as well spend my precious time developing something fruitful and fulfilling. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif My woman is very understanding and very supporting. I do spend time doing 'chick' activities with her occasionally like going to the park, going to movies, going shopping and so on. I guess it all boils down to time-management.

There is more men in the world, at least that's what I hear alot. I don't know if it's true.

They say because men have a higher death rate, Wars, etc.

Of course, we're all geeks and no women will approach us so its hopeless mp3nskins....

actually, I hear, there are more females in this world than males. Male bodies are designed to wear out faster, so they do not live as long as females.

btw, all males are not geeks, all geeks are not males.

My girlfriend just saw this thread:

She looked at me and screamed "Get a life Steve"

and then she said with a large smile

"even lady Webmasters"

I'm still smiling. Another healthy sign of "Community" and what is also very rewarding is to see many of our "Lady Webmasters" posting. This has long been a passion of mine.

I'm on line between 12 and 18 hours per day and thats a 7 day work week. I check affiliate stats about once per week but do spend a lot of time with my log files and stats on services I offer plus CTR on banners I serve.

It's still fun and most rewarding. Thank you http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

It's all right, joe. There's plenty more ppl in the world with misshapen heads. In fact, i think it's required to be funny looking if you're a webmaster. You have to sign a contract that says "i will look like a geek".... hehehe... maybe thats why i'm such a terrible webmaster.

I am a 'webmistress' as well. I spend way too much time checking stats and not enough time updating my pages. I just recently got internet access on my laptop so I can check on everything while I'm away.

It keeps me out of trouble and my husband knows where I am.
