Thread: Is it just me?

  1. #1

    Is it just me?

    Or do others experience the same effect as I do?

    As I log on to HF to search and find an answer for a particular question, I see other threads that spark an interest, not the one I came here for but just as absorbing. As I journey through the threads and jump into other threads via links and suggestions I find myself three hours later with a wealth of information but forgetting what I came here for...

    This is an awsome site, a wealth of information at my fingertips. So glad I joined and hopefully one day I will be able to help someone else.

    Thanks to HF and all of you!

    It's definitely not just you. There's so much good and friendly advice here it's easy to get lost in the forum.

    Many times, I've gone looking for a thread to link that will answer a poster's question. I go looking and get distracted; ADOS (Attention Deficit Oooo Shiny). By the time I remember I'm on a specific quest, the question has already been answered.

    So yeah, I'm right there with you and I've been here for 3+ years.

    ADOS and CDO

    I have been touting the dangers of ADOS for some time, having worked with teen and pre-teen boys through scouts.

    Regarding other areas of concern, I must admit that I have also had issues with CDO. Others erronously refer to this as OCD, but it is important that one alphabetize those letters...

    LMAO! at that. ADOS, too funny. <Still laughing> very loud.
    Boss is going to kill me.

    Anyone reviewing weblogs for this site will see how much time I'm on here. Almost embarrassing, but it really is a huge wealth of knowledge and eager to help friends.

    p.s. Beware the budget as the Gear Addiction will drain your bank account too.

    So it's not just me...I'm glad they already have an acronym for it.

    ADOS, that's way funny.
