I spend WAY too much time in the PW forums, when I SHOULD be practicing the piano. It's almost like a catch 22 though; I get so much good information from everybody (well, almost everybody...) that it is just time well-spent. But I still feel guilty...

Yeah Jerry I do agree that we can pick up alot of good stuffs here but I am trying to spend more time on practical practising than surfing the forum when I am at home.

Yes, this can be a problem at first as you will learn a lot here but after a while you will become very selective it what you read and reply to.

I usually hang out on PW at work. Sometimes, when I'm not busy I can read lots of posts. PW doesn't conflict with practicing because I don't usually get on PW at the house.

I'm sorry. I don't understand the question. \:\)

Heh, heh. Well, I figure that I'll never make a decent living playing the piano, which means this is just a great hobby. Hobbies are supposed to be fun. PW is fun. So it's all good.

Yes.. unfortunately I have recently developed a very aggressive dislike for trolls in Piano Forum.. I really need to let this go.

Time I should spend playing rather than unmasking.

i don't really understand this. i love piano more than anything else, and don't consider spending time on these forums more fun [and important] than practicing the piano.
