I stopped reading because I was spending three hours a day on it... then at one point, I saw a mention of something in a newsgroup and had a look for it, and a couple of weeks later, I'm back nearly to a full load.
I don't have much time during the week so I catch up on the week-end, rather than spending time with Stella.
And I'm not even reading everything that's interesting! For an info-junkie, Usenet is like crack.
Maybe it's time for another abstention period... but that'll be hard. Imagining what I'm missing... urg.
