    Ugh Drea, that sucks! He needs a total intervention. Isn't it so gay when all of these guys get together & play games - I like to call that a circle jerk.

    No computers this weekend!!

      Damn the people who made it possible to play video games at home.
      Mike always says he'll play a "quick game". It is NEVER a quick game. And when I ask him how much longer, it's always "5 more minutes". Yeah, the dog can't wait another 3 hours to pee, so I'll do it. Soooo frustrating

        my DH doesn't play video games, but he watches SO MUCH TV! I'm not really a tv person, it wouldn't bother me not to have cable because I do other stuff, but he watches every damn sport he can find and would never miss a red sox or pats game, its so damn annoying! But I can't complain too much because when he watches TV I'm on BDW.

            I hate video games. My ex used to play Everquest 24/7 and it got to the point where he just wouldn't leave the house. He sat in the computer room, smoking pot and playing that damn game all day & night.

            With him, there wasn't a way to fix it. On the rare occasion when I could pry the keyboard from his fingers to go out, he was so moody and going thru "withdrawals", that I relented and started going out on my own, with my own friends.

            Here's a little passive aggressive "fun" for you tho:

            Go to his computer when he's in the bathroom. Press these keys simultaneously: Control, Alt, and the down arrow key. This will shift his PC screen upside down. Good luck to him on figuring that one out!!! :)

              lolololol....good one Maria, but if I did that he would probably figure it out (remember Erik is a computer guy) or maybe he wouldn't... and he also plays this on his Mac

                  definitely wouldn't work on a Mac.... but even my programmer/IT friends didn't know about this trick. It's one of those things that isn't mentioned in documentation and you have to really dig to find how to undo it. I stumbled across it when I hit the wrong sequence of keys at home. Took me awhile I remember what I pressed to undo it. :) the person who sits across from me at work is one of those 'gossipy' types whose always whispering.... when she really drives me batty, I'll do this when she heads out for lunch. and then I just sit there chuckling and when she leaves to grab the IT guy to fix it, I'll undo it while she's gone. :)

                      That is awesome!!! I have to try it. To reverse it do you just do the same thing, but press the up arrow key?
