Mine is set to automatically open as soon as I turn on my computer and I don't log out until I turn off the computer. So from the time I get home from work and turn it on to the time I drag myself away from the computer to go to bed it's sitting there tempting me.

I open and close it all day but only because I have to share the computer with my hubby. But I may as well leave it open since I'm on it so much. I swear I stalk more than I stamp sometimes! : )

I am open and closer too. I think "Ok, I'll get something done and close it" The I open it again. My computer is upstairs, so my I say to my Mom "I have to go get something" or "I will be right back" and she says "See you in an hour". I think she's on to me... but with it a being up stairs, at least I am getting exersize, right???

I leave it open all day on the weekends when I am home. I open and close it when I have time and can pull up from work during the week days.

Well with two little ones at home to share the computer with I open and close it as needed. Open more often than closed though. I realized that I should probably let them play their stuff on here too.

I open and close as needed. I wonder if keeping it open all day when you aren't actually viewing is slowing the system down. So I just close when finished and have an icon on the home page for fast check in or get on through email update.

Can anyone answer that big blue sentence?

I was just talking to my mom last night about the fact that I am no longer "driven" to buy the Take Ten magazines anymore since I can browse the galleries here for sets that I actually own.

I don't necessarily have the site open all day, but I do check it often.

NO! The only way it would use up bandwidth, and slow the system down, is if the page that is open is set to "auto-reload". I don't believe that SCS has any pages that auto-reload.

So for those of us who keep it open all day long, you don't have to worry.

I open it and keep it open all day too! Phone line? What phone line LOL I'd rather be on here than get phone calls any day!

laura's reply was correct, there's no burden on the system to just leave your browser window open. thanks for asking :^)

I'm another one that keeps it open all day just makes me feel good knowing SCS is always there when I need a break or my procrastination is in high gear or when there's laundry to do or there's dishes in the sink that need to be done..........well you get the picture, I'm on SCS and the house is a mess.

I refuse to admit that what finally pushed me over into broadband was a need to view SCS faster. I refuse, I refuse, . . . .

I keep my laptop on all day, but I don't keep SCS on if I'm not going to be posting, gallery gazing, or reading, then I put my Firefox on something else so that I'm not considered 'on'.

*raises hand* Guilty as charged.
I tried to have SCS has my homepage, but DH said that was a bit too obsessive I don't know what he means by that!
I'm on and off continuously throughout the day so I usually leave it open.

I leave mine on all day at the office. On one tab, I have the gallery running on slideshow, then on another tab I have my office program open for work.

When I have tenants or applicants come in, I can just click the SCS tab and all they can see are the inspirations of you guys. That way, no sensitive information can be seen by unauthorized individuals. Who knew SCS could help protect personal information of others? LOL

I still am not anywhere close to seeing EVERY gallery item. (my personal goal)
