Okay, I just gave some productivity tips, so it’s time to give some *unproductivity* tips: ways to waste time online.
One thing I really enjoy is watching “speed runs,” which are people recording themselves as they finish video games in record time. The best site I’ve run across is Speed Demos Archive. You can view their entire list of game speedruns. You can watch someone beat all the stages of NES Super Mario Bros., with no warps, in twenty minutes. Or see someone beat Half-Life in about 45 minutes. If you watch a lot of videos, drop them some moolah to help pay for bandwidth.
I don’t know about you, but I tend to suck at video games, other than perhaps Time Pilot. I made it about two minutes into Gears of War before I got snagged in a corner as monsters shot me. If you suck at video games too, speed demos can give you ideas for what to try.
Once you’re well and truly hooked on this hobby, try searching for [speed run] on Google Video or YouTube. You’ll find 10K+ videos. Good luck with that productivity.
