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, my name is Don and I'm an DVi-aholic. Welcome to the group! ;-0

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!

Reed Hewitt March 5th, 2010 02:01 PM

Well it looks like I'm in good company.

Don Bloom March 5th, 2010 03:30 PM

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"


Pete Bauer March 5th, 2010 05:55 PM

I don't have a DVi problem.

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. ;-)

Never posted here in my life. First time. That post count thingie under my name must be broken.

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 Bloom March 6th, 2010 07:43 AM

Works for me! WOOHOO!

Jim Schuchmann March 6th, 2010 07:56 AM

@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!!!

Don Bloom March 6th, 2010 08:53 AM

SSSSHHHHHHH! My "sponsor" isn't supposed to know about the laptop.

Bill Thesken March 6th, 2010 01:12 PM
