... of our own device!"

(No, this is not a blog entry about the concert I recently attended - The Eagles, who else... - it's about ephotozine!)

"Prepare to be hooked", I've seen several members comment in threads where newcomers introduce themselves. "Pull up a chair and make yourself comfortable - if you're like me, you'll be spending a lot of time on here...", I've also seen several times.

And there's something in that. I'm like that as well. I started out just putting a few photos up and looking around. Then I discovered how much fun - and how useful as well, sometimes - the forum was. And how useful the Techniques section. And ... and ... well, it's as they say - the rest is history. (Just the number of my blog entries on here says enough: 97! So far, that is...) Wink

Some would say I'm lucky that my wife is a member as well, at least she would understand that I would like to spend time on here. But even Jacqueline has said a few times that she thinks I overdo it.

Hmmm. It's true. EPZ really is addictive.

Maybe it's true what they say - I've also seen people quote, and in fact I've done it myself, that other famous line from Hotel California by the Eagles:

"You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave!'"

Well, I'm supposed to be loading the car - we're off for a coastal walk (near Seaton). I prepared a picnic lunch - only stopped once for a quick furkle on here. Now I'm supposed to be 'nearly ready' - this is the third time I've 'just popped in to see what's happening'! LOL, addictive it may be, but at least it's harmless.....................or is it!?!

Im addicted to epz, have been for about 3 weeks since i joined.
Im also addicted to the blogs here, just a shame there are not more tog blogs here.
I still not found any negatives about being here aside from getting RSI. I am a member of other tog communities on the net but this one takes some beating, its the most clicked site in my toolbar Smile

Hehe, I know exactly what you mean! I think it's harmless, the only downside is that it costs time!

Hmmm, yes, we noticed that. Smile

I solved that by using a pen tablet. No more problems with my mouse hand!

I think it's like that for many of us on here!
