Help, I am an addict, been on this site called JakChat anytime I can get away and itís ruining my relationship with myself, friends (no more shopping and parties), and my boss is mad as hell.
P.S. The shopping is actually a reprieve to my credit cards, phew!

Helpless in Slouch Couch,

Don't worry... it's the newbie syndrome. I got it when I joined excited as a puppy discovering his tail moves and can't stop chasing it. But then you will realize:

1-Some subjets are old and everthing have been said on it, but newbies post about it and newbies replies, but you as a regular is already tired of it, sleep

2-The regulars are always posting topics about the same, Riccardo/local politic and religion, Kuku/business topics nobody reads, Dilli/sex oriented pics, ChewwyUK/food, Polar bear/anything as long as it's controversial, Piss Salon/anything as long as it's cynical, myself/"trying" to be funny... thanks God, there's Shesca to break the circle!!! laugh

Once you understand that, you're in a confort zone... you log in in, look what changed... post here and there and go back to normal life! kuku

(note to regulars: don't take my comments too hard, I love you as you are! You're all part of my comfort zone in this www)

Learn to incorporate it with work... That's what I do. Probably 95% of the time you see me on JakChat, I'm also working in another window on my computer and taking short breaks here.

that's what i do. it's just something in the background. sometimes i pay attention, sometimes i don't. it acts like a small distraction when i need a break from concentration on work tasks.

Nwgirl.. welcome to the club :), i lost a boyfriend, a house, a car a job & precious times over JC.

Look at the bright side though, at least you can auction your username just like PB (who knows you might be well compensated)

OK: thanks for the words of encouragement...
But, I have to come to Kuku's defense, I like his posts and religously read all the Business posts (keep up the good work!, don't listen to OK).

CHOCO: I hope intervention comes in the right time before I loose all my valuables to my addiction.

RICC: I work damn slow, so I take all the time to read the posts- this is why my boss is damn mad, because my eyes are glazing, jerking between him and my laptop.

thanks nwgal. at least someone else here is attuned to the *real* world! wink

actually, the "views" figures for posts are not accurate at all, and in fact i'm thinking of deleting that column for this reason.

nonetheless, i don't really care at all that not many people read the investment news digest. it's there mainly for myself as a digest of news that is or could be important to my business clients either now or in the future. indonesian news archives are unreliable, so reposting in the one place at least keeps them available to the interested public.
