Isn't this post somewhat biased towards the computer users seeing how it is on the internet? Nobody can really select the first option if they use this site.

I'm addicted to the Net, to information I get this way, I don't hide it from you :D It would be difficult to be suddenly deprived of access.

To be honest i would pretty much go crazy haha.
The net and the games i play on it are a big help from keeping myself getting bored to death.

Yeah, WHO KNOWS what really effected my life!?!? Maybe you could say it had to do with when my father and mother were together? Computers didn't though. My father was the only one around computers. Microcomputers didn't exist then!

As for computers Affecting my life, I guess NOW they only affect my JOB. I'm HERE too much now for it to affect other things.

It's not just the internet. If I didn't have a computer my ability to write stuff that I could someday sell would be significantly lower. A computer is a much needed tool for me.

I don't actually spend that much time online. But a computer and online access gives me access to a writer's group, a hiking forum (for ideas on where to go to get away from it all) and this and other support forums, which I need from time to time (or at least benefit a great deal from). I could not find those things face to face, given my autism and also my unusualness in other ways.

I'm addicted! But if I have to, I can function without it. Probably get a lot more stuff done & would go back to reading books.

to not have a computer [laptop,or pc] would have a big effect,as am relie on these for use with communication.

am also use them to do mostly non direct communication over the internet,like on WP,or msn with family-whereas am do not relate to humans away from computers,or have the feel/need for communicating with them.
trafford council even have the laptops,laptop insurance and high speed broadband classified as important/needed disability aides for am [which helps in a lot of ways].

when am didnt have own computer [as in pc],am used to hook up a dreamcast to a tv,dc keyboard and to the internet,it was really slow trying to load anything,it wouldn't load things like flash and it looked really crap on a tv but it was better than not having it.

If I had no computer, how would I communicate with the Aspies around the world? And it's impossible to imagine losing the access to the info.

I'd have a hard time without the internet. It's the only way I've been able to stay in contact with a lot of my friends who live far away. Without it, I'd probably not have friends right now. And a computer itself? Absolutely necessary for some of my hobbies. I always find it irritating when people act like computers and similar technology are the end of civilization as we know it for the reason that this technology is very well needed by some people.
