My husband always manages to find something to be obsessed by on the computer once it was Second Life, another was Mafia Wars on facebook now he's into Biogenesis a game of life forms. I don't get it I don't even play on the XBox or the Wii, I have got so frustrated in the past although these days he is more willing to come off when I need him.

Do your or your better half ever have computer obsessions that almost take over your life?

I had to sell my Xbox purely because I was spending so much time on it. I could lose 8 hours plus on Skyrim or RDR daily, and wouldn't see anything remotely unhealthy in it. :|
