What's the longest you've gone without touching your computer?

For me....3 days. Man I'm addicted. haha. I think if I went longer then 3 days I'd seriously go through some withdrawals.

Around 2 weeks, family vacation to the Maritimes in Canada. To me it's not really so much computer withdrawal, but Internet withdrawal. :p ;)
I'm pretty much in the same boat as Constantinos as I was using my computer 5 mins before I left, and pretty much right away as soon as I came home

Lets see without touching my computer it was 3 months and about a week. I was on TDY (Temporary Duty Assignment) to Saudi Arabia back in '97. While there I did check out the computers they had set up so people could send E-mails but, I only did that twice.

About 2 weeks I would say, BUT I had other computers to supplement my withdrawal, though its not the same,

But its more internet withdrawal, reading the forums I go on, the e-magazines. I can do that on other machines and have a site set up with links on it to all of the sites I wish to go to so I have quick links no matter what place I am at :D

boot up when I get home. boot up when i wake up. shut down when i leave. shutdown before bed. Shutting down is not always something I do though. Sometimes it'll run for days at a time though.
