Does Irc influence our lives?

Post by aman2 »

I would say it does. Why? well you don`t really think about it this way .. but when i go to bed sometimes i think of what i did that day .. and i realize i spent it on Irc..
Do i realize i do it all the time? well im not on Irc all the time.. but one thing is for sure.. it is ADDICTIVE :)
So yeah.. from now on im gonna put a "Limit" to my time online .. cause it doesn`t only affect me. like why would it? if i wouldn`t feel "good" online why would i even do it?
The part that affects me more ... is that it affects my real life.. why ?
well for a first it affects my relationship :) why do i still do it?
i like it... its entertaining for me sometimes i ask myself how.. and i still don`t entirely get it :)
This is a thing to think about..
The future is friendly... ;)

IRC is a hobby for me. But you need to know where to stop...
and don't think about it too much ;)

I actually debated this issue in an article published along with the latest issue of the Undernet Newsletter, article which is available at http://www.user-com.undernet.org/newsle ... b62fe32a8b

Take a look, let me know what you think.

I personally use IRC for Hobby (helping people) and like OzzY said you need to know where to stop and don't think of it too much.

True IRC it's highly addictive !!! Once you get the heng of it...it's easy and fun.Especialy when you don't have anything better to do. But be careful, don't get carried with it...there are more important things in life then irc...and every day i realize that it's very true...so enjoy your chat...but also your life !

Regards,
Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want in life.

SURE IT DOES!!! Well, it does with my life. hehe
Every morning when I come out of bed.. the first thing I do is turning on my computer, starting up my internetconnection and starting up my client.
So we sure must say IRC is really adicted, but well, who cares ?
You spends as much time as you want on irc as you want, noone says you need to stay on irc.
I really enjoy helping users, and of course, chatting with those users which i know for so long.
hehehe, that's my opinion folks!!

Spending your hours on the network for nothing is not really good. I see people who helps on the network 24/7. It takes only a hour from me. I'm an addict but I have a brain and I know that /me is a good volunteer :)IRC is a hobby but it can take over your life.

Get a book, join a mailing-list, do a search on google. Learn Linux! Join a community. Help for free (you will always learn), be a sys admin, write scripts, manage servers. There will be NO LIMIT!! Future is Linux. :devil:

Where is the money? In the future.. Enjoy the life. :wink:

IRCoperators need helpers? Afraid not. All they need is peace and quiet to do their jobs and get a chance to chill out.

IRC is addictive and it affects your life if u donno where to stop.
its okay as long as its a hobby or sumthing u do for fun, but once it becomes ur most important daily activity... thats no good.
