Submission + - Slashdotter Time-Wasters->

mckinleyn writes: "What does the average Slashdot reader do in his or her spare time? I have recently been given some extra time off from my hourly job fixing computers, and literally have nothing whatsoever to do. Can anyone suggest an addictive time-waster? Preferably free? So far, I have found Star Pirates, and Nation States. Both of these are incredibly addicting, but still do not fill in a particularly large block of my time. What do you internet geeks do on an unsecured connection with an infinite amount of time to fill?"

Never ask two questions in a business letter. The reply will discuss the one you are least interested, and say nothing about the other.
