What measures you goto to access Fordforums

Just wondering what you do to ensure you get your daily fix of Fordforums


1) 2nd Laptop at work so they carnt trak me on the network
2) Satelite Phone for when Im up bush with No GSM or Phone lines
3) Nokia GSM PCMCIA card for when I am sitting in the car, or on the dunny
4) Stay up late at night getting a quick fix
5) Taking laptop away when spending a weekend away

Sad really!

I just check it on the home PC a couple of times a day, and when I'm at tafe and have nothing to do I read it there too, and that's about it. I'm not that bad no matter what my Mrs. says!

I pretty much have a fordforums window minimized on my desktop all day long at work, and just keep checking back in through the day to see what going on.

Don't use it much at home but thats cause the dialup seems painfully slow after using the work connection. (Although here I am posting from home at the moment!

Home dial up whenever the PC is connected
Tafe, when I am bored in computers class (all the time)

Considering I hate computers it's a good measure of how addicted to this site I am by just bothering to sit down and use one.

The laptop goes just about everywhere with me. And if for some reason I didn't take it, I seek out an internet cafe. :s5
