    Re: QOTW: Has your screentime altered since lockdown?

    I'm spending less time, which is odd. Back in the pre corona days, my average working day would see me walk to work at about 7:30, sit in front of my work computer from 8 until 5ish, with a break for a walk at lunch, then TV or a movie in the evening and maybe some gaming. Now, I'm out on my bike at about 7am, work from 8:30 to five, with a 5KM walk at lunchtime, and sit in the garden or go for a walk in the evenings.

    Maybe something to do with better screens in the office but I really can't be faffed to watch TV after a day in front of the computer at home

    More screen time.
    Full working day on the laptop, with extra time spent mucking around waiting for files to upload over the stupid-slow home internet, followed by all my usual time on the home PC. If anything, I have more time to read books on the Kindle app, plus get in some thumb-time on the ol' Gameboy SP.

    About the same.

    Working in support means my workload's increased, so I'm mitigating the increase in work screentime by using the computer less in the evening and getting more exercise throughout the day.

    Re: QOTW: Has your screentime altered since lockdown?

    Not really, cuz you see, what have become reality for so many people during this virus, well that is everyday for me, and have been for at least a decade.
    And i am pretty okay with it all, cuz aside for maybe washing hands a bit more often, then nothing have changed for me, my only worry is getting the stuff and then bring it to my mother as i do shopping and other chores for the dear old sick lady.

    On the personal level i look forward to dying, just hope to be able to do it with some honor VS crapping out in a bed over 10 years.

    Also retired, however premature at the age of 50 which was some years ago.

    More screen time, but for reasons not connected to Covid, and therefore an utter coincidence.

    Far more time in front of the screen, for news, work, study and fun.

    Far less time in front of the TV - just not doing it much for me.

    Worked from home anyway so can't really say it's changed that much overall....I suppose the only thing that's changed is maybe more time on 'recreational' use than 'work' use.

    About the same considering that I spend a typical office day in front of a computer anyway.

    Looking over a longer period; slightly more screen time now that the majority of my site visits have been canned because the risk assessment with the new COVID 19 line said no.

    Less screen time.
    Although not a sport fanatic i like to read up on results, etc which have of course become non existant, i certainly would not watch all the repeated sport stuff on the TV.
    Corona overload also plays a big part with every news style programme pouring out the gloom and doom and the sanctimonious adverts from companies proclaiming to be helping you when they are ever more trying to make you part with your money makes me want to smash the television to pieces.
    With nothing much in production for broadcast viewing i cannot see an upsurge in viewing over the next few months either.
    I have started to watch some stuff that was on my periphery but overall less screen time.
