I think I need to take me a couple days off and do something that doesn't have to do with a computer. Getting computer burn out and need to work in the garden, buld some fences, rake the leaves, or build on to my animal shelter.

Good idea. I take a day off now and then to go fishing. Makes me feel better all around.

So you want to play FarmVille. With real live plants and animals. How freaky is that...

A 4 day weekend on an island beach was the trick for me. No cell phone coverage, no computer, no way off the island. Sand, surf, sun, crickets and mosquitoes - they'll take your mind off the real world.

If that's your definition of the "real world," you'll be needing another break real soon. :)

We all need a break periodically with sand, surf, sun, crickets, and mosquitoes; or mountains, grass, trees, snow, rivers, fish, coyotes, mountain lions, or whatever it is that revitalizes with a break from technology. Personally, visiting a National Park, if even for a day trip, is always a great recharger.

Well thanks guys for all the suggestions. I did take 3 days off and built/added on to my animal shelter for winter so the animals had a nice home for the cold times ahead.

My grandkids and daughter are in from wisconsin 10 days now. They are 4 and 1 so they are a handfull to say the least. We did some really neat stuff. Now I know why it's best to have little ones when your younger they are sure active little buggers.

My wife had to have emergency surgery appendix removed Monday Emergency Room Sunday night so the last couple of days with little sleep and trying to keep up with me little ones has been a struggle.

She is doing good and hopefully released today.
Got back to the office today and got a boat load of work I need to get done. Can't say my battries are recharged but I didn't get on a computer for 3 days so this seems like a walk in the park. :)

Hmm come to think about it I am in training for Vegas.....

I've taken a few years off and it didn't help.

What is the state beyond "computer/internet burnout" where you loose track of what day it is . . permanently?

Zombie? Droid? Hopeless drone? Happy idiot . . struggling for the legal tender?

What's the cure for that? :-/, :p and ~<0>..<0>~
