I get nowhere near these numbers!
I try limit my screen time, these published numbers are bonkers, what are we doing online!

Eyeballs, binoculars, sketch box, Scopes n stuff.
Some people don't understand why I love astronomy so much, I cannot understand why they do not!

I imagine my hours online would look quite large though I am online very little.
Music is always on and 95% of the time is streamed so it could show up to 16 hours per day though I may only be online for 1 hour or less.

I've reduced the amount of time I spend online pretty significantly in the last year or so. When I am online I usually keep a TSS tab open so I can go back and forth between tasks.

Well on Line has many implications , TV, Radio , security smart house etc and off course the internet between them all I must be 100% on line all the time , the only time I am off is when the server goes down due to our constant power cuts , you can have fancy solar /batteries back up at home but if no signal or the fiber is gone then thats it
I used to have fiber but when it break (stolen items etc) it take days so have gone the 5g option , works well until a long power cut then the signal dies as they steal the batteries from the towers
The wonders of living in Africa , But I still prefer it here that Czech at the moment
But now I wonder cell phones they are probably the high volume that make up the numbers , everyone has a smart phone everywhere
Reflectors GSO 200 Dobs
Refractors None
