DVinfo.net Support Group

After years of being a lurker I have suddenly become addicted to posting on DVinfo. I think I'm dealing with a serious medical addiction here. The symptoms include:

- Inability to stop reading DVinfo forums
- Rapidly declining productivity
- Compulsive need to check for thread updates
- Severe skin rash and hives

Is there a support group for this kind of thing?

Hi Reed and Don, my name is Phil and I'm an DVi-aholic, too.

I admit my addiction, but I really don't want to stop!

See I was here 2 1/2 hours ago and now I'm back. I needed my fix.
Glad I don't have to go to the local spot to get my "drug"

O|O

HI ..My name is Michael, and I am addicted to DVinfo.

As soon as I see a computer, I check my e-mail then I go to DVinfo to see if there is any new posts, even when I am editing at night DVinfo is in the background where I can check it as I need a break from editing. there is something seriously wrong with us :)

Pete, it sounds like denial and of course the first thing towords cure is admitting you have a problem. I think an intervention might be needed. ;-)

Hmmm, if I spent more time at the local watering hole, I wouldn't be spending that time on DVi. Seems like a good intervention?

@Don & Pete - you guys aren't fooling anybody!! You'd find a watering hole with wifi and take your laptop!

I didn't know it was okay to turn it off. Really!?! What if a new piece of equipment or firmware gets released? Or someone finally comes out with the perfect lens?

NO, NO, NO you can't make me turn it off!!!
