    Ok, so what is your pattern or habits on the computer? Two part question here:

    1. When you arrive at vhforums, what is your pattern of viewing? Do you go straight to Main Discussion or boot forum? Do you check all the forums regularly?

    2. When you get online initially, where are the top 3-5 places (web sites) you go first?


    When I get to the forums, I usually start out in Non Music to peep things out here, pretty much knowing that there is nothing really pressing as far as van halen announcements going. Then I go from the bottom to the top of the page viewing new replies since my last visit, in all the forums and I leave Main Discussion for last.

    When I get online, I typically come here first, do my routine of reading then go to my other places before I actually post to the things I've read. Then I check my email accounts, followed by headlines on iwon.com, then come back here to post if anything tickled my fancy the first time 'round (or if there is a possibility to tickle somebody elses [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] ).

    So what about ya'll?

    when i get here, i always go to non music first, for the same reason as you (nothing the hell to talk about).
    i'll then go to main, and scroll down after that, if i have time.
    then, i'll go back to non music, to see if anyone posted anything, then i get on with my life... [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    when i initially get online, i always check my email. that's the first (and sometimes only thing i do, if i don't have a lot of time), then i go to here, or www.classicvanhalen.com because there is a board there, at which i managed to scam a mod position. y'all should check it out. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
    after i've got here and CVH covered, i'll hit the army, slawterhouse, and the official site if i dare, but i never have enough time.

    Same here. I go to non-music meeting place. Mainly because nothing is happening in VH anyway, so it's not exactly a priority right now. And I say that regretfully believe me! [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]
    CHICAGO WHITE SOX - 2005 WORLD CHAMPIONS

    The Chicago White Sox (1901-present) - The Original SOX - Proof

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img] First, I check out the main forums page to see who posted on which topic last. If there is a sports topic up in non music, I'll usually go to the main discussion first.
    I usually try to hit opinions/music/rumors
    through out the day. I usually log off....so I can lurk [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

    Put it this way... in my favourites I have "VH Forums (non music)" and "VH Forums (index page)"

    I always go to non music first. That is, unless I see some big VH news at the vhnd (my start-up page [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]) first - then I go to main first.

    You guys shouls know by now that I live in non-music! [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I start out by opening 3 windows - 2 to espn - one for ball scores, one to check my fantasy baseball team (wish I knew who the other players were - I just figured out recently one of the guys near the top was "Jimmy Walker" - the third one goes to NASCAR. The first place that I'm caught up on goes to check my banking, then after that as I get caught up two go to links and 1 goes to army and usually end up with all three on links. Start at Main and Non-Music and work my way toward each other! Then typically hang around all day - especially if there is a thread of particular interest that I want to read the follow ups on.

    I'll check mail at two accounts first, then head on over to Non-Music. I might browse the rest of the forums for a few min., then I jump on over to Strung Out and check out the landscape. I'll then go administer my boards and moderate the support forums at phpBBHacks.com.

    That's about it, really. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

    E-mail
    Fantasy Baseball
    Van Halen News Desk
    The Official VH Site
    ESPN.com
    VHForums.com (I browse from Main through Non-Music)
    Other forums (Classic VH, DLR Army, Waboritaville)

    I go to VHND first, to catch the latest & greatest, then browse 4-5 VH sites in the morning, do a little work, come back, and check MarksFriggin.com for Stern show highlights when I can't listen to the show from my office, and browse SternFanNetwork in the afternoon.

    I'll also check out Cigar Aficionado & other cigar sites as well on a weekly basis.

    I usually get on the Forums at work in the morning. First place I go is the Moderators Forum is there are new posts, otherwise Opinions first, then up to Main and on down the list.

    At night I usually will visit www.bobandgeorge.com , www.nuklearpower.com (for 8-bit theater) on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, www.rpgplanet.com/dnd3e and www.ign.com (for the Dreamcast, GameCube, and Sci-Fi sections).

    First of all, I have a LAN so I'm always online, and I ALWAYS have my email program running. I'm an email fiend.

    Top 5 sites:
    www.playbill.com and www.backstagejobs.com: because I'm always looking for gigs

    http://hereandnow.northwestern.edu: Links to stuff happening where I go to school

    www.topica.com: to read my VHML and 5150 lists on the web

    www.vhforums.com: The only ones I post in with any regularity are Main and Non-Music, but I check the other forums occasionally.
