    This is one of those either or questions. If you could choose one thing, which is most important:

    These are examples:

    Your computer or your family?
    Your computer or your pet?
    You computer or your transportation?

    What one thing, is more important than your computer?

    I did think of all 3 of your examples (assuming you include phone or any other internet access device as 'computer'). It would greatly suck to have to not know stuff, or go to the library !! Also dont know what i'd do without texting. Or what I'd do without access to forums like this one for that matter. But still, i would choose to give it all up for spouse, cat, or car! But not coffee even though I'm addicted to coffee.

    Although I spend a lot of time on the computer, the only one it might be more important then is transportation. But even then, only to a point, or maybe several points. The first most likely being when the food ran out.

    And when going to the library, they don’t have the resources you need or want so you go to another library and maybe another! ;) :mad:

    I’m being serious about the lattes.

    They should put coffee shops in libraries, like book stores.

    My bike, if I had to to choose between the two. But only when it's warmer. Otherwise, my husband and pets. My husband said: Fender twin reverb.

    I can’t do it in order it just comes out ,shalom is way more important I used to think peace but that is just defined as absence of war , not being in pain, not been worried about money .The cats and other animals are just in another category .

    And there’s a cafeteria right beside our city library, but the council have made sure there are barely any books left ,now they’ve closed another one ,I went four years ago ,now that one has gone ,If you don’t have the money for a computer you have got no chance in the UK ,all that money the past governments spent on computers, now people can’t use them.

    Sometimes those "little things in life" can be pretty important too. ;)

    My first thought was my family, including pets. Also my best friend - but then again, I never would have met him if I didn't have a computer, since we met online.

    Maybe another approach to this question would be what would you be doing if there were no computers? A time within living memory for many of us.

    I am reluctant to answer and prefer to prevaricate that fortunately I don't have to choose.

    However I don't mind using libraries and would choose my cat and also a number of people I'm fond of, if the chips were down.

    It looks... interesting and quite donut-like at first glance. I lack the moral fiber to be a vegan myself but do insist on only eating free range donuts.

    ;)
