    Caffeine, is another matter!

    Maybe uploading more than downloading, but I find recording definitely quite compulsive. It's about the only creative pursuit I haven't got bored with yet, and I do love sharing sounds I find interesting. As for addictions, beer and nicotine are top of the list smile

    Ahhhh there is an addiction I seemed to have managed to kick out: computer games.

    These days with work, family, music making and everything else... there just is not enough hours in the day.

    I still manage the very occasional game in Steel Panthers WW2 or MBT (Main Battle Tank).
    Or sometimes on Battle Isle III
    Strategy games.... boring for most, I guess.
    Can't remember the last time I played any of those. Probably 6 months ago.

    hmmmm..... erm..... I forgot...

    It is not off topic at all.
    It is a group of freesounders discussing what other addictions they share (or suffer from smile ) in addition to freesound.

    It is totally relevant!

    Indeed. I am trying to get this place to be a bit more dynamic, that is the point of my current dare. I want everyone, not just the usual 'customers' to come and have a snoop to see what is going on.
    I want to encourage everyone to see freesound as more than a place to come and download some sounds. I would like people to see their sounds being used and get encouraged to upload more sounds and use other people's too. And, of course, post links in the forums. smile
    the dare is also a good way to get people to explore the database and see what is there!

    I drink too much coffee - or I used to. I'm cutting back.

    I don't play much in the way of video games, but my son likes them and I play them with him occasionally. We try to limit the amount of time he spends on them. he has other things to do.

    Like with so many other things, I think video games are great, in moderation.

    I used to be addicted to video games. I never got into the REALLY hardcore ones like World of Warcraft but I played my fair share of MMORPGs and online shooters. I've cut back significantly in recent years though. They did help me to lose weight though believe it or not. grin
