I have just opened the screen for the umpteenth time today.....and I am supposed to be working you know. name keeps appearing as the latest contributor, blushlooks like I have either got too much time on my hands (not) or got an opinion on everything (most likely). My excuse is that I work mainly on my own, and Gransnet along with Radio 4 is the equivalent of my work buddies.

It's a woman thing - needing to talk. smile

I joined GN last September, I have just checked and found I have visited the site 40,266 times!!!! Is this an addiction? I am finding this hard to believe

Don't worry GillT57, you're just like all the rest of us! Lol!

Anne58 Wed 05-Mar-14 17:52:28

And the problem is...............? confused

GillT57 Wed 05-Mar-14 17:53:24

Newist, I darent check! When I get in to the office, switch on fan heater, kettle, radio 4, then just have a quick check of gransnet before I turn the phone off answering service.......then just another quick browse before I start something else.......and so the day goes on! It is often infuriating, sad, exasperating, but never, ever boring on gransnet! I love it, and thank you all my invisible friends for your company flowers

I was just going to say the same phoenix

So what?

And how do you find out how many times you've visited? confused

GillT57 Wed 05-Mar-14 18:08:30

Don't tell us how to find out please.

'It's good to talk'

It's the first thing I go to once I've checked my emails!

And I have a serious Radio 4 addiction, a couple of programmes not withstanding.

I have a real problem with File on 4, Sunday afternoons. The theme music makes me feel depressed. Mr P manages to turn it off just in time, which isn't easy because they play it a little way into the programme, not right at the beginning. I struggle with Sundays anyway.

Oh go on!!! I'm sure Gill gets her work done as well!

Ana Wed 05-Mar-14 18:31:37

And isn't she her own boss anyway?

Just how many peeks constitutes an addiction ? Is there a daily rate?

newist Wed 05-Mar-14 19:06:13

Right click on a blank bit of the page, left click on view page info, when the pop up appears click on security, it will then tell you how many times you have visited GN

Ana Wed 05-Mar-14 19:17:10

Doesn't work for me...

jinglbellsfrocks Wed 05-Mar-14 19:26:53

it's left click on blank bit. then left click on view page info. then right click on details in the bottom right hand corner.

jinglbellsfrocks Wed 05-Mar-14 19:28:01

20,348 times for me. That can't be right! Perhaps it started again last time I re-joined.

Ana Wed 05-Mar-14 19:31:41

Nope, that doesn't work either...confused

Frannygranny Wed 05-Mar-14 19:33:52

How do you do it on an ipad?

Icyalittle Wed 05-Mar-14 20:21:08

Yes please, Frannygranny I would like to know that too.

ninathenana Wed 05-Mar-14 20:25:14

No right and left on my phone. Ah well, ignorance is bliss !
