I sat at my computer and trolled forums that only simulated other people reading them and flaming them and such.

Played video games, watched TV and videos - yeah, I wasn't really any more productive back then either.

I had a computer for a long time before I had internet. So of course I played video games a lot. And read books. I had a program called "Klik & Play" that was for making dumb little video games.

I browsed the copy of Microsoft Home Microsoft Encarta '95 Encyclopedia that came with my family's Compaq Presario 9546 computer. I liked looking up chemistry and physics theories, history, and language information.

Good lord, I read and wrote a lot more.

Come to think of it, I kinda miss those days. I got a lot more done in shorter time periods. But the comp is sooooo addictive.

Les sigh.

I used to read, watch TV, play outside and listen to music. I've never been good at practising though ... Although before we had a TV (ie before end of 2000) I just read mostly. I used to look up medical stuff in the old and out-of-date books we have.
