I try to balance it out. A couple hours of compuer and a couple hours at the gym or swimming at the pool. Intensive gaming means more workouts!

There are benifits from it, such as free healthcare.

True but I love computers more then my health lol. It's more expensive and harder for you guys to get good parts then us and then you have to pay that tax. Ouch it's a pain killer.


It's not harder, I just order them off sites.  I'll take living over computer partsSmiley Tongue

True but there are certain goodies that was very hard to find in Canada and for a good price. Some people are on a budget never the less and it seems more tempting to get it here then there.

That is true. I wish newegg  would ship to Canada because even after currency conversion they are still slightly cheaper than here. Maybe one day the Canadian dollar will be higherSmiley Tongue
