What are the primary ways you use your home computer?

(I am talking about you personally not how the household uses it).

I forgot shopping and life management, but shopping could be under research....I use the internet for a lot of research for a lot of things.

I'm pretty much the only one who uses my computer...off the top of my head but certainly not a complete or detailed list.


Email (it's the main form of communication with school, work, sports and so forth#, record keeping#tax returns, financial records, volunteer work#, research #Directions, maps, camps, problems, recipes and so forth#, facebook/blogs #social communication with others, family and etc#, picture #editing, sharing

We have 3 computers in our house, and none are "mine".

Email, facebook, school (out of class discussions, research, papers and presentations), iVillage, online shopping.

I think that's the big stuff.

I also use the computer for a bunch of life-management things ... tracking calories, logging my workouts, grocery lists, meal planning, etc.


And my calendar is all electronic ... home outlook account, work outlook account and my blackberry; all synced to keep me organized.


I didn't think about this...but I do these things aswell.

I am an admin assistant, so I do a lot of stuff for others, research, email, scheduling (not to mention the off line *work*).

you are always within your rights as a donor to contact the charity and ask to be put on the do not call/do not mail/ do not email list -- more and more giving is done on line and those of us in nonprofits are always trying to find the right way to reach our donors and our patrons but we always still respect someones wishes not to be contacted-- I highly reccommend making this known to the charity in question..
