What do you leave on the most?

Post by Scarrita » Mon Dec 09, 2002 2:55 pm

Well it seems that for most of the time I tend to have both my television and computer turned on, seeing how I have my computer in the living room I tend to use both at the same time.

So where does most of the power drain come from at your place?

Same here. Although my TV is starngely silent at the moment.

It'll be worse later in the week when my new PC arrives. We'll have a grand total of six in the house then...

To answer the question; computer. I just can't watch much TV anymore...too much crap littering the idiot box these days.

Computer, I tend to leave it running all day, but the TV, well, only one of us leaves that running when it's not being watched, and we lecture him for doing that.

I used to do both, but these last few months, only the computer. I have a pirate satellite system but they changed the access cards and I dont have money to get a new one. :mad:

TV is pants. I mean, really pants. The stuff that's always on in my room are my computer, scanner, speakers, printer, and mini fridge (full of beer).

In fact, I don't even own a TV.

I chose 'Both', but my comps probably on more, i only turn it off at night cause HP's are so bloody noisy :mad:

Although, i'll be spending a lot more time with the TV when my dad brings Vice City back with him at xmas. :)

Both usually are on at once,but the TV goes off before the PC does, so I voted my PC.
