    Ubiquitous

    I am guilty. I admit it.I love the idea of being ubiquitous... so... I'm frequently logged in... and I do spend the majority of my work day in front of my computer... because I'm a writer. But I may not notice anything that's going on in EP... even though I'm signed in... until I...

    Yea.. . .

    Most of the times, my computer is turned on. Also whenever I log in, I check the little box that says "keep me signed in" So sometimes I'm online, but i'm not actually in front of my computer. So. . if I don't reply to you right away. . .. just keep this in mind. O_O

    This is a good group

    for me. I often have myself logged in on here but am not in front of the screen. I could be doing one of umpteen things. I have kids and my youngest is home with me during the day 3x a week. I also could be doing household chores, on the phone, playing with my Android or...

    I Do Sleep, Work And Do Other Things ...occasionally

    I think I've been logged on 24 hours a day lately. Sometimes I'm logged on in more than one place. I forget to close browsers on my iPhone, Tablet and PC all the time. If it's during my sleeping or teaching hours, you can safely assume I'm not just ignoring you. Any other...

    ;-) I frequently forget (or, to be honest, just don't bother) to log off when I get up from my desk to go do other things, so please don't take offense if it looks like I'm on but I don't respond. I'm probably away and haven't seen your message! :-) This is particularly true...

    Yea

    I am usually always logged into Ep but sometimes I may not be here, I might be on facebook, or youtube, or most likely netflix. I love ep, but sometimes I do get bored with it from time to time, so only log in and check things from time to time.

    I stay logged in for long periods and I'm usually not far away but I'm not available at all times. So I'm not ignoring you. Leave me a message and I will contact you as soon as possible.

    It's not often but, sometimes you have things

    I don't watch TV. So, until I no longer live alone I am usually logged in all day. But I often wander off.

    ***BEGIN RANT***. I've been on EP

    If I'm home the PC and TV are usually

    both on, but that doesn't mean I am paying attention to either one. It is probably a bad habit and is certainly a waste of electricity, but I doubt it will change any time soon.

    Because I Don't Intentionally Log Out.

    I check EP between school work and knitting and my other daily activities around the house. This is why I may not reply right away even if there is a green dot. I could be watching a show or writing an essay. I don't intentionally ignore anyone without blocking them.

    Commonly

    I do this A LOT and I apologize. Sometimes it's easier to stay logged in so I can check in whenever I have a moment than it is to log in and out a million times a day. So, if I don't respond to messages when I'm "available", it's means that I'm simply unavailable right then.  If...
