Comforting thought that I am not only one with “Email/Blackberry obsession or must be connected syndrome”. Some telltale signs if you’re an email junkie:
Interrupting newspaper reading to check your email
Tilting your head slightly while your partner is talking to you- your response, “uh oh, what did you say, darling”?
While in bed (partner on your side), you’re thinking about how responses you’ve received from your post/blog.
Carrying your laptop on your honeymoon, vacation
An organization called Global Ideas Bank held its 4th annual “Internet-Free-Day” last month (Wall Street Journal-WSJ, Feb 14 2007), it encouraged people to meet each other face-to-face (must try harder), pick up the newspaper or journals (lots of catching up), have one or more internet-free days (MUST try really hard).
New York City is going as far as putting out a bill to “make it illegal to use a Blackberry or any other electronic device while crossing the street”. Big Brother is watching!

No response anyone?
Piss, you always have something clever to say...or
Dilli, how about you? No picture as a reply to this post. I am so disappointed-no picture.

Or is this post way too boring? I'll have to try better next time then...

JJG,

Never give up, girl!
1. Is not that the post is uninteresting and
2. I refuse to believe that we're not understood. It is that some people are suffering from illusion of grandeur (think they know better than we do/superior than we are).

JJG, your English is just fine...

JakChat is one of the websites that causes addiction.

But seriously, it is something to be worried about. How many of us lost touch to social lives we used to have to socialize virtually with unknown individuals who we might not meet in our entire lives. May be it's the anonimousity, which let you to say or even do what you want? Or may be the fact that you would never meet those people which had caused you to be more "open" than to real life people?

It used to be television. And now it's internet and blackberry/cell or even video games for kids.

And we are wondering why people are behaving in odd ways these days.....

But to comment on the medicine to cure the addiction, I doubt if cold turkey will be it. Just limit yourself and engage yourself into non virtual activities. Slowly but surely you will limit your online time smile

For nwgirl :

I think JJG was right. And better if you keep going,.
and for me,.myself,.EGP if there's nobody response my posting here,. I just wanna share what I see and read and think usefull for me and others,.but if others think the thing I posted was not useful,.that's their right to ignore. They did that way I believe they have their own reasons and everyone have their each reason for to do and not to do.

Keep smiling
makes my body gemuk terus,.:)

The best way to learn is by trying, JJG, and that's what lots of people are doing on this website. You're putting in more effort than most foreigners do to learn Indonesian... So, fuck the mistakes and keep on posting... Anyway, maybe we can make fun of some of the mistakes. I amuse more people accidentally than deliberately that way wink

I am getting left behind by technology, I only recently learned how to paste a photo here. I will attach a photo just to prove it's true.

See?

So, what is the big deal about a berry then. Isn't it just a portable email device with an annoyingly small screen and tiny little keys that only a 'tikus' can operate?

And why do you need an iPod if your phone and everything else can store music?

Mr. Piss,
Should I explain what to do with all those?
do you carry/use your cellphone or berry to listen music when you working out at the gym or jogging on the track? (if you do,that's weird!!)

some people might need all of those for reason, and enjoy them all, and some not! big deal ! leave it alone and move on with your own life Mr.!
