    It kills me... my parents hate when I'm on the computer. They get pissy. Part of it is that they are addicted to it too. My mom finds little things for me to do so I can get off the computer. I just learned CGI and now I'm looking to learn PHP and as soon I'm in the middle of coding something and I have to get off and save. Its cool I'll buy my own PC soon.

    Well... I let my parents on the PC sometimes and they're happy with that. Just not my sister but she only wants to play games so... WORKING goes BEFORE GAMES

    My parents are now only allowing me on the computer after 6, after I've done all my homework and some extra they give me. Plus I have to play piano 20 minutes a day (I like it though). But once I've been given permission to use the computer, I can use it for as long as I like.

    Just now it's only 3:48 but I'm in computing club, so I can get away from them for a while. iMacs though, so its annoying.

    Here's a little anecdote for all the parents who are afraid to use credit cards on the internet.

    My fiance isn't fully convinced that e-commerce is secure enough, so when ordering a magazine subscription, he called the 1-800 number rather than subscribing online.

    He gave the phone operator his info and credit card numbers, only to have her say, "Oh, there's something wrong with the internet connection now... I'll have to punch this in later."

    So, you see, even if you're not PERSONALLY going to e-commerce sites and using credit cards online, many businesses use their e-commerce set-up to handle orders anyway! You can't avoid it.

    Related side note: I heard that American Express (I think it was American Express, anyway), is developing a one time use credit card for online purchases. That way, you don't have to worry about people getting into your account.
